This was the second time I have stayed here whilst on business in nearby Cupar and I was once again bowled over by the Riverview hospitality, cleanliness and breakfast quality. My group had reserved three rooms and our hosts had put us into adjoining rooms which was very thoughtful. Having stayed before, I already knew how clean the Riverview is... More

From the minute you arrive in the drive at Jack and Nancy's it's like visiting family! The best reception ever. The rooms are immaculate with every thing you could possibly need. The bed is MASSIVE and it is the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in. It just envelopes your body and you drift off. Very quiet even though it... More

Although a short car or bus ride from the city centre we have chosen to stay here throughout the four years our son was at University. St Andrews has first class hotels & guest houses but in my opinion no one will look after your comforts better than Jack and Nancy. It also has ample off-road parking which is unusual... More

We had a wonderful stay. The guest house is in a really peaceful, beautiful location about 3 miles from St Andrews. The view from the balcony is stunning. There's plenty of parking for cars and a bus stop right at the front door. Our bed was very comfortable. The room was super clean and we got fresh towels every day.... More

This was a very nice place to stay, with parking off the road. The breakfast was great. We were given a menu from which to choose our breakfast meal. It was very convenient to drive to the Old Course in St. Andrews from there. Our hosts do know golf. We had to leave one day early, and our hosts were... More

We stayed only one night on our way north, and wished it could have been longer, as we enjoyed staying here so much. The accommodation is superb, rather like a motel setup, with separate rooms accessed directly from the car park. Very comfortable rooms, and fantastic breakfasts. Nancy is a lovely hostess. Thoroughly recommended.

My family and I occupied three rooms at Riverview Guest House for two nights recently. We had a very enjoyable time, our hosts Jack and Nancy were very welcoming and went out of their way to help us. The accommodation is high quality with large sized rooms and a hearty Scottish breakfast. It is wonderful to have no problem parking... More

Stayed at the Riverview guest house on 1st and 2nd of April to celebrate my mum & dad's 54th wedding anniversary. What a great welcome by Jack and Nancy. They treated us like one of the family and even gave mum and dad an anniversary card, which was extremely kind. The breakfast is the best I've experienced and you will... More
