Welcome to the world famous Macdonald Rusacks Hotel in St Andrews.

In 2013 I became the hotels latest General Manager.  Not only am I immensely proud to be adding my name to the list of previous and distinguished General Managers who have walked these hallowed halls, but I also feel privileged to lead our team, who I consider to be one of the finest hospitality teams in the land.  With 70 beautiful bedrooms overlooking the iconic 18th Green of the Old Course, where golf was invented and the best exponents of the art have battled for superiority over each other for years, to the famous West Sands Beach as immortalised in Chariots of Fire, it has everything a relaxing holiday in Scotland Should have.

We are also delighted to be able to offer Rocca Bar & Grill, which is headed up by the immensely talented Davie Aspin who has taken our restaurant to 3 AA Rosette standard and almost celebrity status.  It really is one of the finest venues in the region.  We use locally sourced fresh Scottish ingredients to create our delicious and varied seasonal menus.  Our food is inspired by classic Scottish cooking but with a creative Italian twist.  If watching the world go by in elegant surroundings is your kind of thing, then there is no better place than R Bar, our Champagne and whisky bar, which boasts stunning views over the beach.  For those who enjoy their food and beverage experiences dialled down a notch we have something for you as well in our One Under Gastro Pub which is the perfect fusion of great pub and high quality restaurant.  We treat food and beverage with a reverence here, we really do have everything your taste buds desire.

In my career within hotels I have learned many things but most important amongst them is that great people make great hotels and I genuinely feel the team at Macdonald Rusacks Hotel are a fine example of Scottish hospitality.  My time at Macdonald Rusacks Hotel has become the highlight of my career and it is my team and I's priority to ensure that staying with us will become the highlight of your stay in St Andrews.

Hopefully I will have the opportunity to personally welcome you to Macdonald Rusacks Hotel in the future.
