Just spent a fabulous weekend at The Old Station which was recommended to us by a friend. We stayed in the African room which was clean and spacious. Breakfast was delicious using fresh local produce. Just a short taxi ride into St Andrews to loads of pubs and restaurants. Hope to return again soon.

Im going to be really fair with this review as we loved our stay in the carraige and would definitely return. The host fiona was very welcoming and friendly on our arrival...we just loved the quirkiness of the train and yes its a little on the expensive side but not enough to put us off returning. Im a clean freak... More

My husband is a railway enthusiast so we both looked forward to our stay in a former railway station. The current property doesn't retain any of the character of a former station and no efforts have been made to restore any of the original features. The two rail cars converted into accommodations look unkept and need of refurbishment. Our room... More

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

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
