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

We arrived late with no reservations. Friendly hostess, substandard accommodation. You could hear everything through the walls. The bed was lousy but bathroom good, they built ridiculous tacky pre-fab closets in the bedroom, the room better without. The breakfast in the morning was handled by only one person, but satisfactory. Certainly overpriced for what you get.

We had a hard time finding accommodation in St Andrews. Spent the whole day on the phone ringing places. So many were full (& it was a Mon night). They are clearly used to golfers who are prepared to pay a bit. We found a room at Arran House. The host asked for 85 pounds & put us in a... More
