Just returned from a golf trip to St. Andrews. 16 of us arrived on Saturday afternoon and the hotel was excellent. The rooms are very basic but how long do you actually spend in them when you're on a golf trip? Beds were very comfortable, showers could do with a bit more power but that would be my only complaint... More

What a lovely friendly hotel. We were in room 10 which overlooked the sea and beautiful coast of St Andrews. Apparently room 11 has better views as it's on the corner of the hotel but we couldn't complain. Dinner in the small but nicely organised restaurant was terrific!! Breakfast was also served in the restaurant with plenty of choice. The... More

Stayed for 1 night with an itison voucher and was well impressed. Room was not huge and layout was a bit quirky but for a building this age that was fine. Everything was clean and well presented. Highlight was the restaurant, meal was first class and could not be faulted. Wine list was extensive and not over priced. Location is... More

Our group of four adults and one grumpy 2 year old stopped off at this hotel for a pub lunch one rainy, cold day in St Andrews. The staff welcomed us and went to great efforts to make sure we had all we needed for our 2 year old. Although they didn't have a specific kids menu or any changing... More

Just had a two night break@ The Hotel which was very pleasant. The proprietors (Gordon&Fiona) & staff (Alex,Lizzie etc) were lovely and eager to please. The Food & Accommodation (room 11) were Excellent. Many Thanks to you all for giving us such a lovely stay,we will have no hesitation in booking your hotel again.

Just back from my second trip to this hotel and again I can't find fault with this lovely wee place. I bought the deal through Itison and it was great value. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food is delicious and the location of the hotel is great for exploring St Andrews. When this deal pops up again... More

We stayed here with an Itison voucher and found everything to be first class. The food at both dinner and breakfast was very tasty with the mussels in Thai spices one of the highlights. Dinner was served in the bar with a roaring fire, very couthie! The service was friendly and helpful, the room very good. The location is perfect... More

Had a fantastic one night stay at this welcoming hotel. From the owner to a lovely girl called Lizzie we were left wanting for nothing. All three meals were presented by someone who knows the in and out of good service, and when this occurs with food carefully prepared you cannot fail to be impressed. What shines through at this...
