    You will not be disappointed - absolute amazing, would recommend the OCH to anyone!

    We are so grateful to The Old Course Hotel and especially to Lucy & Laura who were both absolute superstars from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble, they made sure all the little touches were covered. Always on the end of the phone or e-mail to discuss any matters however big or small. With all the changes with Lockdowns and Covid, they have been so accommodating. They provided a list of fantastic suppliers we used who were all very helpful. The setting was so perfect, the views onto the course were amazing, the food was unbelievably brilliant. Whether you are a golfer or not, you will not be disappointed with the Old Course Hotel. All staff at the venue were exceptional.
    We really can't thank them enough for all that they have done. Thank you so much. 5+ star rating from us! *****

    The day of our dreams!

    Laura and the team at The Old Course Hotel are simply amazing! We cannot thank them enough for going above and beyond to make our day so perfect. The venue, service, food & wine were all incredible and we will never forget all the special touches during our wedding weekend. The team helped to ensure that our day went so smoothly and made the whole planning process so easy.

    A very special mention has to go to Laura. Due to restrictions we had to change our wedding date from 2020 to 2021 and Laura made this change so easy to do and helped to put our minds at ease. She was always at the end of the phone or on emails to answer my daft questions or to calm me down if I was stressed! Nothing was too much hassle for her and we honestly feel like we have a friend for life in her now. I'm going to miss speaking to her on a regular basis! She really is an absolute credit to the OCH team!

    Thank you again to everyone at the OCH. Our wedding day was everything we could have wished for and more. I just wish we could do it all again :)

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Mr and Mrs Strachan - you most definitely have a friend for life!!

    Your review and comments mean so much to me and the wider OCH team, your wedding was the first one we hosted where guests were allowed to dance! You and your guests made it one to remember, everyone was just so full of joy and all smiles.

    Please don't be strangers and I look forward to seeing you both back at the Old Course Hotel!

    Out of this world!

    The team were absolutely outstanding. I honestly couldn’t fault them at all. Our wedding date was changed three times during the pandemic and this was done with such ease! I was lucky enough to have both Lucy & Laura to support me throughout the planning journey. Our wedding was a micro wedding due to the pandemic however this didn’t change the level of service or support that we received. No task or request was out of the question. They delivered a most magical day for us and one we will treasure forever.
    The Old Course really have got a brilliant team on their hands and they are extremely fortunate and should be so proud. We are only one of their customers and if the service we had is anything to go by they will no doubt have a raft of Other wonderful reviews.
    On the day of the wedding itself everything was smooth, the venue and setting beautiful, the food was exceptional, drink was flowing and the craic/fun was a plenty! The support staff throughout the hotel on the day were nothing short of brilliant too.
    Thank you so very much I’d recommend them in a heartbeat.

    Perfection

    From start to finish, Lucy & Laura were just a delight. Not only did they turn around our wedding with 4 weeks’ notice but made everything so simple and stress free. Nothing was too much hassle. The setting, food and service were spectacular. We will forever cherish the memories made at the Old Course Hotel on our special day.

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Emma and James - congratulations again!

    We were absolutely delighted to have played a part in your special day and what an amazing day it was!!

    We will hopefully see both again soon here at the Old Course!

    The Perfect Venue

    The Hotel were amazing from start to finish! Nothing was to much to ask for the team. We have had so much positive feedback from guests about the food and the service from all of the staff at the hotel. The team went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we wanted and more. I would highly recommend The Old Course Hotel as a dream wedding venue! All of the team are approachable and friendly. The Hotel itself is simply stunning and has so many places for photographs! Our guests loved it and so did we! 10/10 for everything.

    Wedding 22.5.21

    The entire team at the Old Course Hotel are absolutely wonderful but a special mention needs to be given to Laura Russell who went above and beyond to help us plan our wedding and make our day so perfect. She is one of the loveliest people you will ever meet and just fantastic at her job! Despite covid 19, we had the most incredible day!! Everything was exceptional- from the venue itself, the food, wine, service and to all the staff helping on the day- they were simply brilliant and so professional. They made the whole experience of planning a wedding completely stress free as they took care of everything for us, every tiny detail was important to them and I felt they were truly invested in making our day so brilliant. We didn't want to leave the hotel and sincerely wish we could do it all again with them! Perhaps a vow renewal there will be needed in a few years! : )

    Thank you again so much to all the team,

    Dr Jenny and Alex Glover

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Jenny and Alex, thank you so much for your kind words!

    What can we say?!? First wedding of 2021 and first wedding after re-opening - your wedding will be one that Team OCH will remember with massive smiles on our faces.

    Don't be strangers - you will always be guaranteed a warm welcome at the Old Course Hotel!

    Laura and Team xx

    Perfect intimate wedding and celebration

    We simply can not give a high enough recommendation for a wedding at St Andrews Old Course Hotel. Our intimate wedding (of just 16) in February was a great weekend, and from arrival on Saturday morning through the wedding on Sunday, we had the full support from the excellent staff. The events were seamless for the celebration, and all to the plan we had discussed with the team.
    Having the family at the hotel for the weekend was the perfect choice, and with the stunning backdrop of one of our favourite places to visit (St Andrews town and historic Old Course) a perfect package. We have been at The Old Course Hotel previously on many occasions, including New Year celebrations, so it was a known quantity for my ‘wife’ and I for luxury, quality and simply a friendly place to be.
    We had full use of the Library for the vows, and Board room for the Wedding Breakfast. All were planned and prepared with great support from Joelle, including ideas to make the rooms look and feel like a wedding venue. The Board room essentially became our own ‘Fine Dining’ venue and a place to be together throughout the evening. The food was excellent and high recommendation for the drinks and canopies on the wedding menu.
    One additional note, we had a relative fall taking a walk in the town during the hours leading up to the wedding event. Alison from Guest Relations took a hotel car, and drove our relative to receive medical attention. What a massive above and beyond this was, and made sure our day could progress and could be everything we dreamt of.

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Thank you so much for your very kind review. We are so glad that you had a memorable wedding day and that Alison ensured your relative was okay. We hope to see you again soon at the Old Course Hotel!

    Absolutely an Amazing Day

    Had an amazing experience for our wedding. We can't thank the Old Course enough for such a memorable day. Despite COVID they were able to accommodate us and everything we hoped for in a wedding :)

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Thank you so much Alex and congratulations to you and Frazer once again! It's definitely been a bit of a bumpy COVID road to get there but we did and we were just delighted to be part of your special day!!

    The venue itself is stunning

    We chose to have our meal in the Conservatory, where you are literally right on the golf course in breathtaking surroundings, followed by our reception in the Ballroom which oozes elegance and class. It is certainly a venue that doesn’t need much ‘dressing up’ in order to provide you with a gorgeous backdrop for your day. We were lucky enough to have a glorious sunny day, which allowed for our wedding photos to be taken on the beach and on the balcony beside the Road Hole Bar. We also managed to sneak in a sunset picture on the world famous Swilken Bridge! Choosing our menu was almost as fun as our wedding day, and chef even came out to meet us to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. If you are a foodie and really looking for a quality meal on your big day, then this is place for you! All of our guests couldn’t compliment the food enough, and we managed to provide options that suited everyone. The service throughout was second to none, it really is 5 star. Living in the south of England, it was always going to be challenging to liaise and have our vision come to life. However after meeting Laura, she completely put our minds at ease. Every detail or request that we had, were brought to life and nothing was too big or too small. Laura even went above and beyond on the morning of our day by helping to iron creases out of my wedding dress! We couldn’t have asked for a better venue and it will forever hold a special place in our heart. We are forever grateful to all of the incredible staff for an incredible experience.

    Everything was done to perfection

    We had such a special wedding day thanks to Joelle and her amazing team. We wanted our day a bit different, nothing was a problem, everything was done to perfection. Beautiful room, lovely food and a warm friendly service throughout.

    The venue is stunning, a fantastic place to capture gorgeous photographs on the golf course and at the beach.

    We would highly recommend the Old Course as a special place to get married. We wish we could do it all over again!
