One night stay for a Wedding. Very very pleasant staff. Great location centre of St Andrews. Nice breakfast. Downside: finding parking and if you get a spot by the Hotel: the coating of seagull #### on the car every morning!

The best things in this hotel are its really large rooms - very, very large! - and its breakfast, simply DELICIOUS and... huge :) I advise to select the Scottish breakfast at least once. I would disagree with Brandon's review as the service is really friendly (as everything in this little town). As I now work in St Andrews I... More

I just spent four nights at this hotel and I was truly sorry to leave. From the minute I walked in and got a warm greeting from the innkeepers, I felt like it was my home away from home in St. Andrews. It's charming, clean, and the food in the restaurant is fantastic. (I would rate it as the best... More

Stayed here for a visit to the university , very pleasant welcome on arrival , large family room, which was great for our visit. Breakfast was good. Staff very friendly albeit very busy. Great location for our purpose , managed to park our car near by and then we were able to walk everywhere we needed to be.

Was visiting a friend in St Andrews a month ago. Went to the restaurant here seeking a halfway decent meal. I'd have done better to drink from the Scottish sewers. The food was bland, lacked flavor, and was clearly reheated from a previous day (or who knows, maybe even month). The waitress glared at us the entire stay, made snide... More

Stayed the night at this hotel at the end of January. The bedroom was lovely, and good value for money.the only downside to it was that everything squeeked. The floorboards, the chair, the bed,even the toilet. They really need to do something about the floorboards. Breakfast was very good, and the staff, very nice.

Once again a superb reception, lovely cosy room with everything you could need. Staff very helpful. Bar very well stocked for those keen on a tipple. Good food and service. Delicious breakfast selection to set up you're day. Very central in St Andrews where you can have a coastal walk or trawl the varied shops. A 5 minute walk to... More

When I write this review, I haven't check out yet. It shows that how much I want to give credit to the hotel staff for a job well done during my 7 days stay here. The main thing for the team here is that they serve you from the bottom of their heart whether they are from the reception ,... More

Firstly a Big thanks to Jinty, who gave us an early checkin (1230) and was extremely friendly and hospitable throughout our stay, really made us feel welcome and at home.

My husband, father-in-law and I stayed here for 1 night in January. It is very conveniently located, and they were very friendly- especially at reception and the bar. We didn't eat here for dinner. Overall I was very happy with the room, bed, shower and location.
