Just completed a week's stay at the Greyfriars and once again I would recommend this hotel to anyone, especially if you're going to play golf. I've stayed here for the last three years and Jinti, the General Manger, is the greatest. The whole staff is friendly and accommodating to all your needs. Paul, the chef, is very good and the...

nice location rooms are a decent standard but not real value at £150 per night It's essential a pub sadly the pricing based on the popularity of St Andrews leaves you feeling mugged St Andrews is fantastic though and thoroughly enjoyable

This is just two blocks from the Old Course at St. Andrews. I've never been to a hotel where the check in staff was as friendly and helpful. Rooms were just fine, although if you get on with a window on North street it can be a little loud in the morning. Breakfast is part of the deal, and they... More

We had a lovely welcome from Jinty the receptionist and check in was quick. We stayed on the 2nd floor in room 215 - fantastic room with air con, walk... More

Repeat stay here. Brought 5 friends and golfers to St Andrews for a week long visit. Returned to the Greyfriars based on previous experiences here. I did notice the room prices have gone up since the new owners took over, which is cause for concern. Nothing has changed at the Greyfriars beside this....perfect location coupled with large, clean rooms, great... More

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.
