This is an excellent base for exploring St Andrews and the surrounding area. Very nice rooms which seem to have been refurbished fairly recently. Friendly staff. Nice bar/eating area. Great breakfasts. Free car parking in the public car park next door. All in all great value for money in a town that can be fairly expensive. Would definitely use again.

We had a large room which worked well for a couple and a third adult. Having this option can obviously save money when you are travelling as a family group, as we were, or as any group for that matter. This is basically pub accommodation, and very good, clean and well appointed. We found the breakfast great, and the bar... More

We've been season caravanserai for many years in St Andrew's and we have eaten in the Grey friars Hotel restaurant on many an occasion. Nice interior, staff very attentive and welcoming. Families welcome and menu has quite a choice. This time we went for the club sandwich, brilliant not small pieces of chicken, husband had a chicken fillet, no complaints... More

Stayed at this hotel over the weekend was a last minute booking and found a warm welcome upon arrival to the hotel.

A group of 10 of us stayed at Greyfriars for 6 nights. All the rooms on the top floor were very large. I had a king bed, chairs a desk and space to exercise before golf. The rooms were clean and suitable for a couple or even a family - plenty of space for clothes and a good size bathroom... More

Our family was thrilled when we discovered how spacious and comfortable our accommodations were. We had booked a family room, which by European standards isn't necessarily that big. Our room was very spacious, comfortable, and even had two bathrooms with a total of three showers. We LOVED staying here. We loved the room, the restaurant downstairs, the location, the breakfast...

We had a lovely meal on Saturday night at Greyfriars, our party of 18 were very well catered for. Good food at a very reasonable price, plenty of choice. This is the second time we have eaten here in a large party. Thank you to the chef, Laura and team.

We booked a last minute overnight trip to St. Andrews and decided to stay at Greyfriars Hotel. It was perfect for what we needed! The lady that checked us in was incredibly nice and started our trip off perfectly. We didn't spend much time at the hotel as we were out most of the day, but we found the hotel... More
