Enjoyable stay here made even more so with the hosts' help with securing a game on the Old Course. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful and being so central you can walk just about everywhere you would want to go. Room well looked after. Only downside was the very small bathroom in the single room. But that's only a very minor... More

We were here in late May 2016 and couldn't rate our stay any higher. The breakfast was terrific, rooms clean and Mick and Chris couldn't be more accommodating. With its close proximity to the golf courses and the warm welcome we received we will definitely be back.

My husband and I spent two days here during our short tour of Scotland. We found our hosts to be very welcoming and we really enjoyed our stay. The location in St Andrews was excellent, only 200m from St Andrews Old Course first tee. A great place for tourists and golfers alike. Room adequate and comfortable. Breakfast excellent.

We stayed four days in May. Perfect location för a golf holliday. Walking distance to the golf Courses in St Andrews. Nice and clean room. Comfortable bed. If the breakfast time were more flexible I would have given it six out of six. .

I had a great stay a Lorimer House. Chris and Mick were very welcoming, the room was immaculate, quiet and comfortable. Great facilities and the house is located right in the heart of St Andrews, just minutes from the beach and old course. Breakfast was great too! I'd definitely recommend!

The Lorimer, and its hosts Chris and Mick, provided a great base for our short stay in St Andrews with our American friends. Yes the weather was good and kind allowing us to walk around the city and its golf facilities. But the highlight for all of us was The Lorimer -- it's friendly, wonderfully situated and has great facilities.... More
