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

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

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
