Centrally located the Lorimer House is within walking distance to all parts of the city. Michael and Chris are wonderful host and attentive of your every need. Daily breakfast were a real treat with local fresh fruit, cereals, juices, and made to order meals. Although not spacious, the rooms are very comfortable with lots of storage space for your belongings.... More

We recently spent a week at Lorimer Guest House and were absolutely floored by the service and hospitality offered by Chris and Michael! The breakfasts were wonderful and the golf stories would be hard to top. Our room was very nicely appointed and lotions, soaps, and hair dryer were provided. A hot water pot, drink mixes, and cookies were also... More

Stayed for 5 days as base for golf trip. Michael & Chris were the perfect hosts providing great rooms, great breakfast each day & perfect information on where to eat. Even provided a 'Take away' food package as we had an early start one morning. Would stop there again without hesitation and would recommend Lorimer House to anyone as the... More

Chris and Mick were very helpful and sweet throughout my stay. The accommodations and breakfast are wonderful. The location of the guest house is perfect. It was an unexpected additional positive part of being in St. Andrews.

What a gem! Three of us stayed for 5 nights as part of a once-in-a-lifetime trip to play golf at St Andrews. The accommodation is of a very high standard. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the welcome and help provided by Chris and Mick during our stay was excellent, including booking tee times, restaurants, taxis, etc for us. Great breakfast... More

Chris & Michael were the perfect hosts for our group. They accommodated all of our needs, and anticipated our wants before we expressed them. The rooms were updated and super clean. The property is close (walking distance) to everything and especially the "Old Course". Highly recommend this property!

Returned for the 10th year and again not disappointed. Our visit as always starts with very warm welcome. The rooms were perfect and immaculately maintained every day. There is a good range of options for breakfast, which includes toast and beverages - very tasty! We also had assistance in booking golf on our day away from the "links" and it... More

We arrived late and were given a warm and friendly greeting by Mick and Chris and shown to our lovely room which was very spacious and nicely furnished. You are perfectly placed to walk into the Town Centre or amble onto the Golf Courses. The Breakfast was great, anything you wanted, cooked to order as well as a variety of... More

I can honestly say this is one of the best guest houses I have ever stayed in. Spotlessly clean, close to all amenities and a lovely couple running the place (Mick and Chris). The bathroom was excellent, and no expense spared on the little touches, especially the hand-wash!! The breakfast was to die for, a great selection on the menu... More
