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

I am writing this review now but I have been staying at the Greyfriars Hotel since 2012. I did my PhD in St Andrews and lived there, but then when I met my partner and move to Edinburgh, every time I needed to go to StAnds for a meeting, a party, even two of my most special events in my... More

Excellent location,large clean and tidy rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Really good cooked breakfast. Pretty noisy floorboards on the top floor, can only assume a marching band was there during our stay. Will happily and look forward to retuning.

The location of the hotel is excellent, ensuring that you can easily walk to all of the sites in St. Andrews. Free parking is right next door, and thankfully there was an open spot for us, though I am not sure if this would always be the case, as it is in a rather busy central location. The hotel room...

My husband and I booked a room here whilst visiting friends and having always stayed in Dundee we managed to find a room at Greyfriars for a reasonable price for the area and really weren't expecting much from the photographs of the hotel but as we were really only booking a bed for the night we weren't too fussed.

Our room hadn't been hoovered when we checked in - crumbs (big ones!) all over the floor from the previous occupants. Not a nice thing to be greeted with as it made us wonder how clean the rest of the room was. However, the guy behind the bar was helpful, apologetic and promised it would get sorted when we reported... More

My wife and I frequently visit Greyfriars every time we visit St Andrews and always enjoy our visit, but now they no longer sell Tennents lager and have replaced it with (In my opinion)with an inferior Belhaven lager I wiil not be using the place , which will be a great disappointment to me. Bring back tennents.

Thanks for the review. Being a Belhaven Managed House we have been put on a trial with the new Saltire lager. We know how important value is to our standard lager drinkers and following progressive supplier increases, the company has developed their own Scottish Lager to continue to provide great value to our guests.

Had a fab 3 nights here, ate in twice - brilliant pub grub, especially Cullen Skink & Steak & Ale pies. Would have scored 5 but bed too firm for me, no sound proofing & Breakfast ok but had better. Staff were great & had fun with them & other patrons, superb banter 😊
