Spent two nights at Hotel with my wife and we had a most enjoyable stay. Staff brilliant , food excellent and rooms comfortable and warm. The place still retains a slightly old world charm with its drawing rooms and open fireplaces. All in all well worth a visit if you are in the St.Andrews area.

We have been here many times over the last few years for lunch. It is always a pleasant dinning experience. Few changes this time, lunch is now in the Terrace Restaurant instead of the bar or library, this is due to redecoration, and I hate to say, it's lost it's charm. Whilst I appreciate places have to move with the... More

We try to get a break at Rufflets every year and have never been disappointed. The service is always excellent in all areas of the hotel. Many of the bedrooms have been upgraded over the last few years and the new bathrooms are lovely. The drawing room is a lovely environment for a pre or post dinner drink.

Lovely hotel however with the exception of the reception staff , found that staff were abrupt and the hotel lacked atmosphere. Grounds very nice and breakfast average. Family room very spacious and separate bedroom for children

Our two night stay was excellent in every way. Our room was well appointed and the homemade shortbread on the hospitality tray mouthwatering. All staff were efficient and friendly. The choice and quality of food on offer at dinner was outstanding. We would recommend Rufflets without reservation.

We recently escaped from our young children for a relaxing night away at Rufflets. The hotel is lovely. Beautiful grounds and very comfortable room. The staff were very friendly, nothing was too much bother. The highlight of our stay had to be the meals! Our dinner was one of the best either of us have eaten. We will definitely return!

My partner and I stayed on a dinner B&B basis and I am pleased to say had a really good time. The staff were friendly and our room (we stayed in the Gilroy suite) was very homely with it's own fireplace and home-made shortbread. my partner and I both agreed that it is probably one of the most home from...

Went with friends - we had a classic room and they had an upgrade as a return customer. Very happy with our classic room, well appointed and comfortable. Lovely drawing room and comfy seating - perfect for predinner drinks - such a shame that the newly refurbished bar (which has obviously been well intentioned and probably cost a fortune) looks...

We were fortunate enough to attend a family wedding at the rufflets and have to say it was a picturesque location with beautiful grounds and buildings, the mix of the old and new modern were done so tastefully making it the ideal wedding venue. Both sides of the wedding party had booked two of the cottages which were also a... More

Delighted to see that the hotel and staff went down so well for the wedding. We know that the location is wonderful (even in winter) and this is all helped by the fantastic staff that we have at Rufflets. They care deeply about what they do, and do work ever so hard to make all the experiences memorable - and... More

We stayed here for one night last week and absolutely loved it! We stayed in a Classic Room and it was absolutely fantastic. The room was huge and beautifully decorated and the bathroom had a free standing bath with separate shower. If this is the standard of the Classic Rooms, I would love to see what the other rooms are... More

The team were all delighted to see that you clearly enjoyed a great stay with us - and thank you for letting us know. As far as the other rooms are concerned, we hope that you might find the time to come and see us again - but perhaps a different room type next time around!! Thanks again, Stephen Owen... More
