Were heren on a golf trip when we rented the whole hotel. Nice rooms, great Scottisch breakfast. Close to golf and a downtown stroll. Do not forget to visit the great coffee place across the street which is so much better than your average Starbucks fare.

I stayed here for 3 nights for my daughters graduation. Even though I booked 7 months in advance, this was one of the few remaining rooms in St Andrews itself, so top marks for location. Everything else was very average given the extortionate price I had to pay for B&B. The hotel and my room were far too hot and... More

I stayed here with my wife and 2 young daughters. This really is a great little hotel - a bit different/more traditional, in that you check in at the bar downstairs, but we were really impressed with the quality of our accommodation. The room was BIG and had everything we needed. The staff took wonderful care of us, and (as... More

Stopped here on the way home from our caravan holiday for breakfast. Staff could not have been more friendly and the food was delicious! We had a 6 month old with us and the waitress fussed over him and made sure we knew where the baby change was(which was very clean!)

Great location and is simply the central point of this town. Staff are friendly and breakfast is good: you order your hot dish. Room is big and free Wifi. Kind of basic B&B arrangement but good enough. I got what I needed. And clean and tidy. But the downside is that it's pretty noisy -- mainly from the outside. It's... More

I cannot really comment on whether the place is value for money as I didn't pay the room. I studied in St Andrews and came back two decades later. The Greyfriars was always a bar for locals and tourists alike and I believe the hotel is a semi-new addition. It is situated at the golf course end of North Street... More

Booked this hotel based on on-line reviews and accommodation search sites. All pretty accurate. Staff friendly and helpful. Room was very spacious (213). Shower was awesome and the biggest fluffiest towels I have ever seen!! (you can tell they get a lot of Americans) Room clean, basic, but just what you need. Can be a bit noisy due to being... More
