Afternoon tea with a group of friends. Good supply of varied, tasty sandwiches plus some hot and cold savouries. Good variety of cakes and scones with cream. Regulary topped up hot drinks in a very pleasant setting. Good service just slightly marred by the pleasant youg waiter frequently addressing the group of ladies as "you guys". Not quite inkeeping with... More

Many thanks for the kind comments - it was good to read how much you enjoyed the ambience, service and food that we provide for the Afternoon Tea at Rufflets. I have had a word with the young man re the words he uses - even with the Aussie accent, he does need to be a bit more careful! Hope... More

The quality and character of this lovely place extends to more then just the gardens and the bricks and mortar. The Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. This type of service is what will always bring people back. Our 5 night stay was highlighted with the pinnacle of our trip with a round at the Home of Golf.

Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, and we were pleased to see that you had such a good stay with us. We do work hard to try and make the hotel feel like the 'home-from-home' rather than just being yet another hotel, and it is good to see when that has been felt by our clients.... More

We were at Rufflets for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This was our third visit to the hotel. The rooms, food and service are always excellent and we will be back. St Andrews is just a short drive from the hotel with plenty shops and cafes.

From the moment we arrived we knew we had made the right choice for our annivesary break away from our 3 teenage kids. The staff were so friendly, professional and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We had room 37 - a beautiful suite at the top of the hotel with an excellent "feel" and luxury bathroom. Breakfast was... More

We had stayed here last year and had such a lovely time that when we noticed there was a deal with an itison voucher we had no hesitation in booking. Our dinner was very tasty and breakfast was very good. Although it was a cold November day when we arrived, the hotel was lovely and warm and the staff very... More

Delighted to read how much you clearly enjoyed the return visit to Rufflets, especially when you had driven so far, and thank you for taking the time and effort to leave your feedback. The Turret Rooms are very popular, and worth spending that little bit extra. With the bay window and seating area, they do have that little bit more... More
