Five star venue shuts

Old Course Hotel latest to be closed by Covid rules

The Old Course Hotel: shutting temporarily

The Old Course Hotel in St Andrews is the latest five-star hotel to close because of the coronavirus restrictions imposed by the government.

All of its facilities will shut “temporarily”, but it gave no date for when it will reopen. The golf course will remain open.

The announcement follows a decision by Gleneagles Hotel to close until February.

Fife and neighbouring Perth and Kinross are in the government’s level three lockdown which means restaurants and bars cannot serve alcoholic drinks with or without a meal and must close by 6pm – although hotels can serve food to guests in their rooms until 10pm.

Many hoteliers and restaurateurs have said this makes it uneconomic to open.

In a statement, the Old Course Hotel said: “All of us at Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa really appreciate our guests and our community for helping to make the last few months enjoyable and safe.
