“Pleasant stay for visit in St Andrew's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

We arrived on a rainy day and were accommodated in an old train carriage that makes part of the "Old Station" B&B.It was warm and cosy , quiet and very private.
Breakfast the next day just great!
Taxi to town centre-7£, 1 night for 2-special of 90£, cooked breakfast 7.50£ p.head.
We would go again!

Room Tip: If you like somethinf different, ask for the railway carriage!

we were delighted with the facilities of the garden room ,also with the care & attention from Fiona & Colin. Location is so convenient for the town or coast & overcomes the parking frustrations of staying in town. Looking forward to our return in July

We spent a lovely two night stay here and couldn't have asked for more. Comfortable, welcoming, clean and peaceful. Situated in an ideal spot for exploring St Andrews and the small villages along the Fife coast, we left very pleased with our stay and happy to recommend!

The Old Station was recommended to us and we will certainly pass on the recommendation to others.
Our room was lovely. Newly decorated and fresh and clean. Our hosts could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was scrumptious!
Will certainly return again.

Room Tip: We chose a sunny room at the front overlooking the garden.

We stayed in the train carriage which was simply marvellous! A really different twist and the setting was fantastic! The proprietor was helpful and nice with the added benefit that was perfect for if you didn't want to go to the main house for meals. The teeniest, tiniest draw back was the need for a cab to take you to the main part of town. But the expense was so minor, the ambience more than made up for that. We will definitely return! Try the Indian restaurant Maisha for somewhere to eat... Tandoori lobster? Awesome! For traditional haggis, it has to be Mitchells in town.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the railway carriages. Simply stunning!

The Old Station compliments the St Andrews area, an easy going and relaxing stop-off. When you have left you say to yourself " Blimey, that was very good ". Things dont get much better.

Room Tip: I,m a bit disabled so I chose the Garden Room, ITS LUSH, This is a RETURN VISIT
