Ideally situated within a few minutes walk of The Old Course and the town centre with numerous bars and restaurants. This is a pub/hotel with little noise from the pub part. our room at the front (101) was very large. Breakfast was as good as we have had anywhere.

Nice clean hotel with decent rates and great location within close walking distance to the Old Course and restaurants/shopping. Great breakfast buffet included which had the best Scottish smoked salmon and Scottish porridge ever! Perhaps its in comparison to the cheaper farm raised salmon we have back in the US but this breakfast wow'd me. I couldn't wait for it... More

The hotel rooms are above a bar, accessed via a side entrance. Very welcoming and helpful staff. We had a 'superior' room which was large, with 2 comfortable settees, TV, etc., and a well-appointed bathroom. It was on the first floor overlooking the main street, and a bit noisy in the morning from traffic and refuse collection. Breakfast served in... More

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
