This was our first trip to Scotland and it was a Father-Son Golf trip. We had heard great things about the Rusacks Hotel but after meeting Andy and Ian, and experiencing their personal interest in making our trip incredible, it exceeded all of our expectations. The flexibility and personal interest in making our experience in St. Andrews a trip of a lifetime came through every moment we were there. Thanks to the Rusacks staff, especially Andy and Ian. This will be a trip we never forget!

Fantastic Service!

We recently enjoyed our stay at the Macdonald Rusacks hotel in St. Andrews Scotland. The staff was quite pleasant and a few of them stood out. First and foremost was Ian Cameron who was our concierge connection. He was absolutely the most helpful person and was able to make changes for our golf rounds, dinners and pretty much anything else we needed. Two thumbs up from Mike and Jean! Emma was quite wonderful each morning for breakfast and our afternoons and evenings spent at our groups spot at the Rbar were made special by Sandy who was always there for us.
Thanks to all who made our stay and our trip for golf and birthday celebration one to remember and also one for the record books...
