Certificate of Excellence
We are a small, friendly, informal 3 star hotel. The first in St Andrews to be awarded the prestigious title 'Townhouse Hotel' by the Scottish Tourist Board. The quaint old building has a warm personality all of its own. You will love the craftsmanship of the many original features. Built from 1764, the hotel consists of two Georgian terraced houses, both exactly the same layout, built for two brothers by their father, Mr Thomas Low. With only 22 rooms (all en-suite), we are able to maintain very high standards in accommodation and service without losing our warm and caring attitude towards our guests. Special, great value seasonal, weekend and golf breaks are often available, so contact the hotel for details. The hotel will also be delighted to help arrange golf, sightseeing tours and visits to places of interest. We look forward to you spending some time with us at The Albany Hotel and getting a real flavour for everything St Andrews has to offer.

Such a great location for a hotel, right in town. Listed building and wonderful attentive and helpful staff. Due to the building's age, the plumbing takes some getting used to and the bedroom decor is a little dated. No king size beds. Fantastic breakfast was...More

The Albany is well located. A small, friendly hotel with a surprising number of rooms. Beware no lift. Rooms are clean and cosy although walls a little thin. Mine was top floor with great views. Great breakfast too.
