The Greyfriars exceeded our expectations as from the outside the place suggests nothing very much. Our bedroom was very comfortable on the third floor with even a sneaky view of the of course and R&A club house. Large bed, a sofa and large flat screen tv, decent shower provided at great value along with delicious Scottish cooked breakfast (give scrambled... More

We had a pleasant stay, sadly marred by a few disappointments. The room was fantastic - spacious, modern, warm, new bathroom with separate shower, etc. The staff at front desk and bar were helpful and welcoming. However we had planned to eat in the hotel, but when we arrived downstairs at 7.30pm the kitchen had already closed! The next morning... More

popped in for lunch and have to say well done. The pulled pork sandwich and chunky chips with a drink for £7 was perfect value, served with a smile and very quickly. Clean premises and sky to on the few tellies dotted around. Good place

This was a last minute stay over in the lovely town of St Andrews - thanks to all the staff - we had a great stay. A great menu with lots of choice, breakfast was wonderful - well done!! Room comfortable and only criticism would be the creaky floor boards !! Also great choice of ales and beers!!

A huge THANK YOU to all the staff at Greyfriars Hotel in St Andrews. Special thanks to Jinty and Steve. We were there due to a family bereavement and Jinty was so lovely to us. Steve cooks a fantastic HUGE breakfast and although it was a very sad time for us the staff there restored our faith in humanity. Jinty... More

This is a great place to stay in St. Andrews, Scotland. The staff made us feel like we were part of their families. If you are a golfer you are only a ten minute walk to the St. Andrews Club House. Their food was good and their fish and chips are terrific. F&C here was better than we had in... More

My mum was visiting this weekend and we decided to go out for lunch. We had our children with us and we chose this place as there was great parking nearby. Upon arrival the waiter was very helpful putting tables together for us and a very short while later he was back to take our order. He was very friendly... More

I stayed there for 4 nights with my parents during my graduation weekend. There's absolutely nothing bad I could say about this hotel. I arrived a day early at the hotel before realised that I've made a wrong booking so I was panic as everywhere was fully booked because of the graduation period. The manager, however, was kind enough to... More
