Rufflets Country House Hotel is located in a beautiful country setting just outside of St. Andrews. Our room was fairly large, nicely furnished, and very clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the tin of shortbread that was provided daily with our tea/coffee service. We had a lovely view of the gardens at the front of the hotel. The hotel staff... More

During our third annual long weekend booking at Rufflets we were disappointed.The staff and premises were just as good as ever. However, a change has been made in the restaurant, There is now only one menu instead of a Dinner Menu and an A La Carte Menu. We were advised before our trip that as we had booked Dinner, B...

Couldn't of been nicer! Three members of our family took ill on the first night. Staff bent over backwards to take care of everyone. For those who didn't get sick, we got to enjoy the beautiful hotel and grounds. Be sure to enjoy the breakfast and bar area.

Our room was lovely. We had a family room, with seperate twin room, huge kingsize bed in the main bedroom and a huge bathroom with double shower, double sink and large bath. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The garden is beautiful and the children loved exploring and playing in it. The food great, the drinks in the... More

There is a lot of history surrounding the hotel and it is proud of its heritage, it's progress and it's past guests. However, this focus on the past can sometimes mean that attention on the present isn't what it should be. Throughout our stay the service couldn't be faulted, from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked... More

St. Andrews is small enough and easy to navigate one can stay 3 minutes away at this one of a kind hotel. The staff are first class and the grounds are gorgeous. But what is nice is outside of the restaurant there are several different sitting areas that one can relax at evening and have drinks and visit and not... More

We came here to celebrate our anniversary; it was my first time at Rufflets and my husband's third time as he had been here as a boy with his grandparents. It has retained the charm of a country hotel even though it has been modernised and refurbished throughout. Our large room was stylish and sleek. There are, however, areas that... More

In the past couple of years my partner and I have stayed in some high quality hotels from Mexico to Mauritius, but Rufflets is undoubtedly the best. The standard of the room and particularly the bathroom was amazing. There were beautiful grounds in which to relax, and the food was excellent. The Venison I had in the restaurant was cooked...

We attended a wedding and were really impressed by the wedding coordinator who was on hand all day and couldn't have been more helpful. All of the staff were exceptionally friendly, service was smooth, welcoming, professional and the food and grounds were lovely.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay last week. Even with rainy, cool weather, the gardens and grounds were beautiful. Our room was lovely with a large, modern bathroom. We did not have dinner at the hotel, but breakfast was delicious and quick. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. We will definitely return!
