“Exceeded expectations in every way (even the weather)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

Stayed for two nights, 2 adults and 1 teenager in a family room. The room was good with a proper single bed not a put me up for the third occupant. A lovely clean en-suite shower room attached to a good sized room with plenty of storage space. Nice to find a swimming pool in a hotel of this size and more surprising to find no-one else in it! The breakfast was excellent and evening food met with approval also. In all a cracking little hotel and a great lucky find.
Criticisms? A new shower head would have made the most of a nice big shower cubicle; the windows could have opened a bit wider, I know they don't want people falling out if them and it wouldn't normally be a problem but the weather was HOT and the room consequently was a bit stuffy at night....

We spent one week at the hotel and truly felt like we were part of the family by the end of our visit. The staff were attentive, friendly, and always available to assist with the smallest (or largest) request. The facilities were perfectly located for golfing and sight seeing excursions as well as close enough to the waterfront for evening walks to and from dinner. The dining options at the hotel were always well cooked and provided plenty of options. The gym facilities and pool were an unexpected bonus - we will definitely stay here again!

We spent 4 nights at this lovely, family run hotel to meet up with other friends and act as a base. The staff we so accomodating and nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed using the facilities there too (gym and pool) which is a real 'find' in the area. Nothing was too much trouble, a genuine wish to assist was present in all staff. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Stayed here overnight a couple of weeks ago and were very comfortable. Room was spotlessly clean and comfortably furnished. Staff were outstanding. When they noticed my husband had mobility problems, they said they would set up a table for us in the conservatory area for breakfast to save him struggling with stairs. This was very considerate and helpful. Only slight problem was we would have preferred a room with a walk-in shower, again because of my husband's mobility problems. We hadn't stipulated this when we booked so it was an omission on our part and not hotel's fault. Would definitely stay here again.

In town for a golf trip. Location provided easy and close access to the courses we wanted to play. The staff was very pleasant and extremely helpful. Very close the the town of St. Andrews and plenty of nice pubs/restaurants.

This is a small 16 room Inn. The staff was incredably friendly. (They left a breakfast on our door when they found out we were leaving early for a tee time). The rooms are small and quaint and clean. The food in the restaurant was very good. The pool in the basement was kind of a neat set up. The only complaint I have is their spotty wifi in the hotel, I think it has a lot to do with how many people are on it at any given time. But it's free.

Room Tip: We had room 10 which is on the second floor. I think I would try for a first floor room.
