Stayed at the OId Station after visiting the university on an open day. Travelled from Wales so it was a long 8 hour drive, and after a long day we just wanted to chill. Lovely welcome from Fiona on arrival, and shown to our room. Comfortable bed, and love the decoration of the room. Nice warm shower as well which... More

When I saw this location I had to make a reservation to stay in the carriage, and it was a good decision. Of course the room is small, but well furnished and comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and less cramped than many larger places I've stayed. We had a good night's sleep and a good breakfast. Colin and... More

We stayed in the first class railway carriage in the grounds of The Old Station. What a lovely, comfortable and fun place to stay. It was my wife's birthday, a special one and we stayed with our daughter and my in-laws in the railway carriage, really made a special trip even more special. Both my wife and daughter want to...

Stayed at the Old Station for five nights while on a golf vacation at St. Andrews. Our room and stay was great. Room and bathroom had plenty of room, their website portrays the Inn accurately. Colin and Fiona were wonderful hosts, had either a hot breakfast or large continental breakfast each morning in the actual original train station portion of... More

Been awhile since I've used a B&B for a stay, The Old Station is different and luxurious. Luxury room, with en suite shower & WC. Water pressure best in the late evening, not AM; not a problem, an observation. Having a more than ample breakfast on the old railway station platform, complete with flagstone flooring, watching a variety of birds... More

My husband and I went with two other couples for a 6 night stay. It was our first time to Scotland and after staying with Colin and Fiona it will not be our last. The Old Station exceeded all expectations. We had everything we could possibly want. The breakfasts were all home cooked to order. Delicious. All of Colin's suggestions... More

We had a wonderful time staying at this lovely B&B! Lovely room, a great breakfast and very welcoming owners. I would highly recommend staying in the carriage suite. It was a wonderful treat for the last night of our holiday.

This was our 3rd or 4th visit to the Old Station and the first for our friends who travelled up from Derby. Once again it didn't disappoint, with Fiona and Colin greeting us warmly and making us feel so comfortable and at home. We were shown to the larger of the two carriage suites and our friends were in The... More
