Taxi Service
Everything was excellent until out taxi that was to have been called did not show up. We almost missed our multiple connecting trains...Golf taxi saved the day...and these train tickets were not flexible. I don't know where the breakdown calling the taxi or the taxi company just not showing up, but in a place like St Andrews with no uber or lift service, efficient reliable taxi service is a no-brainer

Outstanding General Manager
There was a mix-up when we arrived and we were sent to a room which was not yet ready. The General Manager sought to resolve the issue quickly and effectively and could not have been more accommodating as we waited. The hotel itself was good but the service of the manager made it great.
