We experienced very friendly staff from the welcome to the departure and the bar staff. Yes the decor is dated but here, the service outweighed how I felt about the decor. Had everything we needed, close drinks and then the bed close after that.

The hotel is not in the city center, but about 15 minutes from there. But most of the hotels were booked. Our room was simple, but large. The breakfast in the morning is OK, but it is served in the back of the bar. No parking places, the parking is just on the street.

This is a good choice for affordable accommodation and a good base to plan your days. The bathroom area was pretty large and the hot water and pressure were great. The breakfast was cooked to order and everyone was incredible nice. They even recommended a place for a very late dinner a short cab ride away. We appreciate the hospitality.

Had a few days in St Andrews before a wedding - and wanted to play a bit of golf. To be honest, most of the town seemed booked up, and what was free was very expensive. But the New Inn was available and worked out really well. It is not five-star luxury but the people we met - the owner,... More

We stayed in a very large room with 3 single beds for 3 adults. There was plenty of room for all of our luggage. I believe there was even a cot in our room, but we didn't look at it. It is within walking distance to the town center, but we took a cab due to the weather. The bartender... More

Inn could benefit from a refurbishment, if you are accommodated in the room titled "New Inn" I would suggest putting the radiator off in the bathroom before retiring, it makes an annoying noise and I only discovered it was the radiator on our second night. Breakfast was served by Dawn who was lovely, very helpful and friendly. We had an... More

Just back from a very enjoyable 2 night break over new year. The staff in the hotel are amazing, very friendly and nothing is a bother. The rooms were clean and cosy and the breakfast menu very varied. We had a very enjoyable stay and would have no hesitation in going back.

It was only after visiting I spoke to a number a regular who informed me the New Inn has recently changed hands and a number of changes have been made meaning a lot of the other reviews are now irrelevant.

I would like to clarify that The New Inn has not changed hands. The same person ( myself) has owned The New Inn since 2009. What has changed is the chef so whilst it is disappointing to hear that you did not enjoy your meal I can assure you the macaroni does not come out a tin ! I will... More
