Stayed here for 2nights - visiting for a friend's wedding in St Andrews. Lovely quirky guesthouse - we stayed in one of the railway carriages. The carriage was converted to a high standard asn was very comfortable. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. The cooked breakfast was superb. Taxi under 10 minutes to St Andrews (£10ish). Throughly enjoyed our stay... More

We stayed at this hotel due to its quirky Carriage instead of any old hotel in St Andrews . We arrived and were greeted by friendly host Fiona who showed us to our Carriage suite. It was so cute - a real unique place to stay. You could tell it was old old carriage but I loved that fact -... More

Sorry for the late review. We stayed at the Old Station at the end of April as a gift from good friends. We were warmly welcomed by Fiona who showed us to our accommodation, the African room. The room looked lovely and most welcoming. Within minutes, Fiona returned and asked if we would like to move down to the Garden... More

A charming wee b n b , found at last minute and proved to be good place to stay within a £10 taxi distance from st.Andrews, we headed off to town pretty much as we arrived and came in later in the evening. Breakfast was very nice . Owner was friendly , we would stay again no problem.

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
