Suite at Hotel du Vin, St Andrews, Scotland

Hotel du Vin

St Andrews’ newest hotel is set on the Scores, the most beautiful street in town, and boasts an enviable location between the golf course and center of town. Having undergone a full renovation in 2014, the historic property has the gleam of a new hotel, but the charm of a decades-old institution. The 36 rooms are done in a comfortable, muted palate with sophisticated touches like suitcase-print wallpaper and modern leather headboards. Some of the rooms are on the smaller side, so splurge on a seaview room; there’s no better place to be on a blustery winter day than wrapped up in a tartan blanket with views of St Andrews Bay. While there is no gym or spa, modern touches like rainfall showers (the two executive suites feature bathtubs as well) and luxe bath products add a dose of coziness, and the staff’s easy geniality is infectious. The newly spruced up digs also include a French bistro-style restaurant, lively bar and romantic garden.
