Hotel Update

The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa unveils refurbishment plans that will see the Five Red Star Resort of St Andrews, Scotland, undertake a total bedroom upgrade and spa extension complete with a new lap pool and extensive gym.

The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa has already been presented with a number of prestigious awards from ‘Scotland’s Best Golf Hotel’ at the World Golf Awards to Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence. Reopening in April 2017, it will take the guest experience to the next level, offering them stunning new bedroom interiors as well as new windows, lighting and air conditioning.

A wide range of guests including groups, sports men and women, families and couples favour the Resort, which idyllically overlooks the ‘The Home Of Golf’ – The Old Course and the North Sea. Golfers find the Hotel an excellent base to challenge their skills across a multitude of courses and business guests find its conference facilities unrivalled.

The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa’s plans will take care of even the smallest detail; catering to every whim. Whether it’s additional ergonomic electrical outlet for flexible working, closet lighting, full-sized mirrors or a USB charging point you’re looking for; this renovation plan has thought of everything. The exclusivity of the bedrooms will make each guest feel as though their experience has been tailored just to them; a home away from home.

The exciting refurbishment plans are due to start on 2nd January 2017 with a scheduled completion in mid April. Guest experience remains at the forefront and as a result, the Hotel will be closed to visitors during this time. Open during the entire period will be The Jigger Inn and Ham's Hame restaurants and The Duke's Golf Course and Clubhouse.

During the renovation, the Resort aims to work closely with staff, offering them a range of opportunities to further develop and hone their skills. Such opportunities include professional development courses, special assignments, work placements, HIT scholarships and Kohler Stewardship and activities.

Please note that pre-closure roof maintenance will take place from Mid-October, this will also affect the the spa hot tub, which will be closed until further notice. We endeavour to keep disruption to an absolute minimum during this time.
