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

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
