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

This guest house is worthy of its four stars. We had a lovely room albeit at the top of the house! But you need the exercise to help you eat the great breakfasts every day. The room and ensuite are spacious, very tastefully decorated and furnished. The guest house is in a great location in St Andrews. Owners were friendly... More

Sorry for the late review. Having stayed at Lorimer Guest House during October 2013 this immaculate accommodation was a great find with the owners Christine & Mick ever so helpful to my wife and I. We were not golfing but the knowledge of restaurants and places to visit was second to none and even give us discount cards for meals... More

Bit late writing this review, but Mick and Chris deserve all the recognition they can get. 5 of us travelled to play some golf in April and we couldn't have asked from any more. Obviously they are set up for golfers, and have all you might need on hand - especially the drying facility!! The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast... More

Lorimer Guest House was the perfect accommodation for our golf trip to St Andrews. Michael and Christine were the perfect hosts making our stay at The Home of Golf all that we had hoped for. The location is great with everything within walking distance. The rooms are warm, modern and immaculately kept making them feel very homely. The breakfast choice,... More

Immaculate guest house in perfect location between town and golf courses; equipped with all modern conveniences and decorated with traditional Scottish furnishings. Mick and Chris do all they can to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, including personal touches such as a large bouquet of lilies in the entrance.

It was my first time in St Andrews and we had selected the Lorimer Guest House. Marvelous breakfasts, comfortable and tasteful rooms, prior location and the outstanding hospitality of Mick and Chris made this a memorable golf trip. The guest houses' location is perfect. Courses, Pubs and restaurants, everything in walking distance. Even parking the car close by was no... More

In a town of many guest houses, the Lorimer stands out for the golfer in particular. Our room was comfortable,modern, well presented and spotless. Wonderful breakfasts offered wide choice, fresh local quality produce and nice presentation, with nothing too much trouble and even times flexed to accommodate early tee-offs. Wifi was available throughout, with a laptop provided in the lounge/dining... More

We stayed with Mick and Chris for 5 nights in October. They are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They were always happy to provide suggestions for things to do and places to eat. They helped me plan a day trip to Edinburgh that was a breeze to do. As well they are able to arrange a very reasonably priced laundry... More
