We stayed one night in the twin room which was adequate but long and narrow; in fairness the other two bedrooms (family and double) we saw looked roomier and were well decorated. The hostess was extremely friendly and helpful and could not have been more pleasant. Main gripe was breakfast: continental amounted to plastic- wrapped cheddar and a couple of... More

Where you got only plastic cheese and two yogurts from I don't know. Our... More

Beautiful place St. Andrews. Guest house was hard to find, due to one way streets etc, and then parking was an issue as the free spaces around the guest house were taken. However we arrived at the guest house and were welcomed with delight from the host Hazel. She showed us our room and we liked it. It was small... More

The room was warm, our door did NOT have a door knob on it so it was difficult to pull closed. The room has so much furniture in it there was no room to move. Even the sink was at the end of a bed. Bathroom had toilet, tiny shower, and sliding door. As soon as I entered I hit... More

On 27 May we had two rooms and have only compliments. For a guest house, the rooms are not small/not large. The breakfast was good, with an emphasis on cooked menu items rather than a large selection of cold items. Fresh fruit was ample! All in all everything was positive about the guest house. There is one consideration that is... More

Bell Craig Guest House is in a centrally located building from the nineteenth century. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. The bathroom is clean, although not very large. Hazel, the owner of the guest house, is a very kind person, ready to provide the necessary information. I especially liked the Scottish breakfast (including the black pudding). The only drawback...

After a bad experience at the Ardgowan Hotel we were so happy to find this little gem. We were made very welcome and the accommodation was excellent. Our room was very tastefully furnished,spotlessly clean and very spacious. The en suite facilities were also excellent. Breakfast was cooked to order with a choice from the menu. We would highly recommend staying... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Bell Craig and would certainly stay there again if we ever return to St Andrews. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The location was perfect, I enjoyed the shopping district while my husband walked the Old Course. The full Scottish breakfast was delicious. The only problem we had was that we wished we'd... More

First impressions where good. The lady made is feel welcome from the minute we walked in. Rooms are smashing n very comfortable and well decorated! For one night I think the £85 cost was steep as the hotel that was full was only £60 and check out was too early

The Bell Craig is a gem. Located on Murray Place in St Andrews, the Bell Craig is ideally situated, whether one is a golfer, a visitor to the 600 year-old University of St Andrews, a general tourist, or a person on a business trip. It is but a short walk to both the Old Course where the British Open is... More

Ideal location and great service. Clean rooms great breakfast fantastic value. Bathroom could be upgraded but thats a very minor thing. Certainly would not put me off coming back. Very helpful staff and a 2 minute walk from the town centre. 1 minute from the beach and 10minutes from the old course
