Friendly and comfortable pub/restaurant. Great location for shops and golf alike. We visit St Andrews often and always eat and drink at the Greyfriars. Would certainly recommend it. Have stayed in it too and again very comfortable. Room was very spacious and clean.

We had a very friendly welcome and introduction into the layout of the city. The room was of a good size, well-equipped, clean and comfortable; the bathroom did let it down a bit - the grouting needed cleaning with a toothbrush and the ceiling was flaking badly. We ate at the hotel on the first evening - the staff were... More

Stayed for a few nights and thought the hotel was great! Staff were friendly and helpful. Only ate breakfast here but it offered a good selection. Room 213 is very nice! Take ear plugs as St Andrews can be noisy!

We visited on a busy Sunday evening (freshers' week) for dinner and we were warmly welcomed and shown to our table. Food was very good "pub grub" and service was prompt and attentive.We were entirely satisfied all round and the biggest endorsement I can give is to say we will return!

We arrived before our 10:30 tee time on the New Course and wanted to get some questions answered before we golfed. We went into the bar, which doubles as the front desk and met the attendant, a gruff and slight sour gentleman. Our questions were hesitantly answered after he put it in

This is a type of hotel with rooms above a pub, nice clean rooms not flash but clean apart from in room 212 dirty mould on the shower tiles, you need to bring your own soap as they only offer shower gel, breakfast nothing special but o.k would help if the girls serving smiled a bit more

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
