One day later I found out from my wife that we had a family conflict for those dates... I ask the Sheila Black the owner to change my arrival date to the spring of 2016... She... More

Let me start off by saying that Bell Craig is not exactly luxurious. It oozes charm though, and it is comfortable, the beds are fine (I'm 6'3"), and it is clean. The location cannot be beat. Steps to St. Andrews, Dunvegan's (and 20+ other pubs), Tesco, the ruins, the North Sea, etc. In other words, dead center of St. Andrews,... More

Bell Craig is located on a quiet street within easy walking distance of the St. Andrews golf courses, the University and pubs and restaurants. The rooms are small, but updated and nicely done. The breakfasts were made to order and excellent. Hazel, the proprietress, is a gem. She went way out of her way to accommodate our schedule. The only... More

We found one place using the map feature but arrived and it did not exist. Luckily the cab dropped us off right near the tourism board location, who booked us at Bell Craig. This is a 8 or so unit building located on a block of about 12 other similar properties. The location is good; close to the ocean/st. andrews... More

Stayed here for 4 nights whilst golfing. Great location only a 5 iron from the old course 1st tee. You can walk to the old, new and jubilee courses very easily. The shuttle bus for the eden club house comes right past the door. Romms we had were clean and tidy and the breakfast great to start the day. Free... More

My husband and I stayed in the family room for 3 nights while visiting our daughter in her semester abroad at St. Andrews. The Bell Craig is a perfect location! Hazel was a wonderful hostess! She gave us a map highlighting where we could find free on-street parking. We parked the car and left it there. Everything we wanted to... More

We recently rented 5 of the 6 rooms at the Bell Craig. This B & B is a nice little guest house perfectly located 5 minutes walk from the Old Course and 5 minutes walk into town. The rooms are not standard-- it is an old house with rooms of varying sizes and benefits. I had the larger room number... More

My parents and I stayed at the Bell Craig for three nights in the family room - one full and one single bed with ensuite bathroom. The room was small but clean and well-equipped (hair dryer, flat screen TV, hot water kettle). The house is about a five minute walk to the Old Course, St. Andrews Castle and city center,... More
