Went in to this hotel for dinner on Friday 7th February 2014. Arrival at the bar was fine, probably the best service of the whole time spent in the establishment. Went to be seated, 2 girls standing doing nothing. Got seated at a lovely booth. Ordered dinner fine, she couldn't wait to get our order over with. I chose the... More

Stayed the night at this hotel at the end of January. The bedroom was lovely, and good value for money.the only downside to it was that everything squeeked. The floorboards, the chair, the bed,even the toilet. They really need to do something about the floorboards. Breakfast was very good, and the staff, very nice.

Delicious breakfast selection to set up you're day. Very central in St Andrews where you can have a coastal walk or trawl the varied shops. A 5 minute walk to... More

When I write this review, I haven't check out yet. It shows that how much I want to give credit to the hotel staff for a job well done during my 7 days stay here. The main thing for the team here is that they serve you from the bottom of their heart whether they are from the reception ,... More

Firstly a Big thanks to Jinty, who gave us an early checkin (1230) and was extremely friendly and hospitable throughout our stay, really made us feel welcome and at home. I would also like to thank Steve for, without fear of contradiction the best Scottish breakfast i have ever had, he was actually finished for the day, but insisted on... More

My husband, father-in-law and I stayed here for 1 night in January. It is very conveniently located, and they were very friendly- especially at reception and the bar. We didn't eat here for dinner. Overall I was very happy with the room, bed, shower and location.

Found this lovely little hotel at quite late notice for new year. We travelled as a young couple and were really happy to stay here and would again. Our room was huge and very clean and all we could have asked for. Location is central and good access for everything, parking can be difficult however just all by luck. Staff... More

Stayed here a couple of times now as it's in a great location. Rooms have been perfect both times, warm and cosy. The bars heaving by night time, enjoyed having a drink in it before heading to the room. Id recommend going to hams hame pub round the corner for something to eat, probably for breakfast and a nice cup... More

I loved this hotel, my room and the environment. Standards are exceptional. Food at breakfast and dinner was excellent. My Sunday morning porridge on 1 December was a dream! Staff were always very friendly and polite. The hotel bar has a vibrant atmosphere but is never overpowering. The background music played is varied, carefully selected and of a modern and... More

We return every year in November and the staff of Greyfriars hotel can't do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. A great welcome as always, nice clean, spacious rooms, friendly, well stocked bar, great breakfast and very high quality evening meals. Very highly recommended for any group of friends coming to St Andrews.
