An amazing little hotel in a central locations, rooms were very comfortable and the staff were friendly and very approachable, there was not one negative I could possibly think of about this place, I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting St Andrews or The Kingdom of Fife.

I was pleasantly surprised with how kind and helpful the staff were. From the chef/ night manager, to the front desk staff they were organized, caring and genuinely interested in making sure we were comfy. Don't go out the wrong door though or you will get yelled at!

The people here are great. We had a fantastic stay for 6 days. Walk to the old course and castle or just about anywhere in st andrews. The bar was great for watching world cup or just hanging out while waiting for friends. Made for an easy trip. Would stay here again for sure.

We stayed at the hotel for 5 days in April. The manager of the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. What ever question we asked she answered with a smile.She went out of her way to get us the answer. The bartenders and the waiters and waitresses were also very friendly. The rooms were not luxurious but they were very... More

Stayed in March and thoroughly enjoyed the stay, the room was large and clean, the breakfast was great and the staff very friendly. Throw in the central location, easy access to both the golf courses and the great selection of pubs restaurants that St Andrews have to offer

One night stay for a Wedding. Very very pleasant staff. Great location centre of St Andrews. Nice breakfast. Downside: finding parking and if you get a spot by the Hotel: the coating of seagull #### on the car every morning!

The best things in this hotel are its really large rooms - very, very large! - and its breakfast, simply DELICIOUS and... huge :) I advise to select the Scottish breakfast at least once. I would disagree with Brandon's review as the service is really friendly (as everything in this little town). As I now work in St Andrews I... More

I just spent four nights at this hotel and I was truly sorry to leave. From the minute I walked in and got a warm greeting from the innkeepers, I felt like it was my home away from home in St. Andrews. It's charming, clean, and the food in the restaurant is fantastic. (I would rate it as the best... More

Stayed here for a visit to the university , very pleasant welcome on arrival , large family room, which was great for our visit. Breakfast was good. Staff very friendly albeit very busy. Great location for our purpose , managed to park our car near by and then we were able to walk everywhere we needed to be.

Was visiting a friend in St Andrews a month ago. Went to the restaurant here seeking a halfway decent meal. I'd have done better to drink from the Scottish sewers. The food was bland, lacked flavor, and was clearly reheated from a previous day (or who knows, maybe even month). The waitress glared at us the entire stay, made snide... More
