Had the pleasure of staying overnight in the railway carriage on Friday 8th August with my husband and our 10 year old daughter. We were greeted by Colin the owner and shown across to our accommodation. There was a separate small sitting room with freeview television and dvd player, a compact little kitchen, a large wrought iron king size bed... More

We stayed there for a few nights and couldn't fault it in any way. Incredibly friendly staff, very clean, amazing breakfasts, inspired room decor, and amazing views. We were all very comfortable and would certainly go back again soon. It is perfectly situated allowing easy access to the town centre but far enough out to allow for total peace and... More

Has advantage of efficient check in, plenty of parking, convenient for but outside St Andrews, large common sitting room and pleasant breakfast garden room, but with small bedroom with rather tired fixtures and décor, small gloomy ensuite room, and restricted breakfast timing it is very over priced at £140.

We stayed in a carriage suite for 3 nights. Unique and very comfortable accommodation. Excellent position a short drive from St Andrews. Colin and Fiona extremely welcoming. Delicious breakfast with a great view of the local birdlife. Highly recommend.

We choose the Old Railway for our 2nd visit to St Andrews just to stay a little out of town and it seemed a little quirky with the carriage rooms, a large garden with boosted a mini golf hole which we thought would be perfect preparation for the 4 courses we had booked for the week. Colin & Fiona turned... More

Fiona, who greeted us and showed is to our carriage was actually the nicest hostess we could have wished for. She took the time to talk to my 6... More

Recent holiday to UK included drive up through England and play golf at St Andrews. Came across The Old Station B&B. The owners Colin and his wife were so welcoming and nothing seem to much trouble. The rooms were great, the breakfast was terrific, overall a very peaceful and beautiful place. Could only summarise my total experience here with a... More

Lovely guesthouse near St Andrews. We stayed one night as we were guests of a wedding at Kinkell Byre. Breakfast was plentiful and the view from the breakfast room is superb. We had the African themed room which was spacious with two comfortable armchairs. The garden is really pretty and plenty of garden furniture to enjoy the lovely weather we... More

We spent a couple of nights here in March 2012 and loved the property and owners. They helped us out with instructions to find places and made our escape before our wedding, the following weekend, very memorable and relaxing. Apologies for the late review but shows that this place is very memorable for good reasons. Ps brekkie is delicious!
