What a super place to stay when you're in St Andrews. Fiona and Colin are the perfect hosts and the Old Station is ideally situated five minutes or so from the centre of the town. Parking can be a big problem in St Andrews town centre, making the majority of B&Bs impractical, an unfortunate byproduct of the increasing popularity of... More

Easy to find but be careful when driving down the driveway, particularly if your car has low ground clearance! Also be careful when leaving as the traffic comes over the bridge at speed. Colin introduced himself when we arrived and is very friendly (as are his dogs). The room (5 - in main house) was small but clean with a... More

Thank you for your review, I am sorry you had an issue with our dogs and I agree we should have this noted, especially for guests with allergies, the dogs are not allowed in the Guest House area but we have a new puppy who seems to enjoy greeting guests when they arrive in their cars and sneaking in whenever...

Lovely location shame the service did not replicate this!! We felt everything was an effort and no extras offered😞 Felt the cooked breakfast was very much not the value for the money paid!!! And very rushed.... I am a far travelled individual and stay in 5*hotels and a Hilton Hotel is way CHEAPER than this B&B...this B&B was way overpriced... More

Thank you Mrs Busy for your review. As a B & B I think it's unfair to compare us to 5 star large chain hotel. We try very hard to be accommodating to our guests as we feel that guests who come to stay here do so because they prefer the personal touch. As you can see by our other... More

It is set in a renovated railway station, complete with train carriage that you can stay in.It is set in the country, but only about 10 minutes drive from town, so a beautiful rural setting, the best of both worlds. Our room opened onto the front forecourt with a seating areas, lovely to enjoy a cuppa in the fresh air... More

Lovely location about 2 miles outside the town on the road to Anstruther. We had a bit of a challenge finding the place because when we called for directions nobody was answering the phone. Room was pleasant though it smelled of a little too much air freshener. Breakfast very nice. Owners very pleasant and professional.

Arrived for early check in which was really appreciated - the room had been cleaned in time for us arriving. Room was airy and tidy; could've been doing with a more thorough clean as things were a little dusty! Location is pretty good (peaceful) and relatively easy to find; but you can't walk anywhere. A taxi will be required but... More

We stayed in the railway Carriage for the weekend and it was amazing. we hired the whole thing, and were able to take the dog with us. Colin was very welcoming, and gave us lots of advice about what to do and where to go. Nothing was too much trouble. The carriage was warm and had excellent facilities, although there... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the lovely carriages. We loved how cosy it was and it was really clean and you could tell had been freshly painted. We had a great view whilst eating our breakfast the next morning. A beautiful unique place to stay with lovely owners and we most definitely be back.

Room exceptionally clean and airy, very pleasant to stay in. Sadly not able to stay in the train carriage in the garden. Enjoyed seeing a red squirrel from the breakfast conservatory. A little disappointed that, apart from the railway carriage, nothing was made of the 'Old Station' - would have been fascinated to have seen old pictures, memorabilia, stories.
