A very enjoyable stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and they accommodated us at very short notice after another booking was abruptly cancelled by another guest house. Excellent central location in St. Andrews- convenient for just about everything.

The guest house is on a street packed full of b&bs. Easy to find in the heart of St. Andrews very central close to bars, places to eat and the beach. On street parking available all around the guest house. Warm and friendly owners who were helpful throughout. It is very dated and decor is tired and bit grubby. Good... More

I was booked to stay for one night. The main problem was that when I arrived the door was locked. No one answered the door bell. I rang the mobile number on the door. No one answered! I went for a cup of tea. Kept ringing. No answer. So, having totally lost faith I booked another hotel! I eventually contacted... More

I've stayed in quite a few B & B's and the Arran House is less than average. It just does not have any outstanding features, it's just a place. I hate being critical but it's no big deal. The location is nice. There were no wash cloths and the bar of soap was the size of a quarter. There was... More

Although the staff were very pleasant this guest house leaves a lot to be desired. The room walls were dirty, outlets were exposed and just did not have that personal touch as other guest houses. Also beware that this guest house is situated adjacent to a pub and I could not get any sleep from all the noise even with... More

This B&B is in a great location. And I really enjoyed the breakfast though I'm not qualified to say whether it was a true English breakfast. There were several issues that were of little consequence to me but may be issues for other guests. First, the room was quite small and the bed was mediocre. Had I been staying multiple... More

Stayed an overnight at this B&B . Room quite comfortable and choice of breakfast fine. .Clean beds and shower and toilet fine. Decor in rooms and the rest of the house needing a bit TLC but in the main it was fine. Good location and within walking distance of everything.

This is a very central B&B, a couple of minutes from everything in St Andrews. This and the very friendly staff were the best things about it. The single room I stayed in for four days was fine, if on the small side, and good value for money. The bathroom was across the landing but huge (probably twice the size... More

If you are not overpricing your accomodation, you might get better reviews. We stay in Craigmore house next door, really good, paid 100 Gbp, we paid 85 GBP here but what a difference. Lousy bed, toilet very average, Tv with one channel from the seventies Now for 65-70 this might be bearable, but not for 85 GBP. And if the... More
