Everyone is so kind welcoming and always call you by your name. More than happy to help. The place is very clean and all the touches of s five star hotel.
The best part of my stay at the Old Course Hotel was breakfast on the fourth floor with a panoramic view overlooking the Course with East Sands and the sea beyond. So beautiful! Service and amenities are top notch. Prime location, short walk to town and University. One of THE nicest places to stay ...
