    Perfectly located, the Ardgowan is short walk to the Old Course, the "downtown" area and the historic castle/cemetery. Having previously stayed at the Old Course hotel, the Ardgowan is nowhere near as lavish, BUT it is also nowhere near as congested, costly or cosmetic. Full,...More

    Hello P. Brown, We are located in St Andrews, Scotland, just around the corner from the Old Course. I believe Maidstone is in the south of England, and it's far away from our hotel! Kind Regards, Carmen

    We have a deluxe room which can have 3 single beds and a pull out or a king, single and pullout depending on your needs. Remember it is also the best rate when you book direct with the hotel.
