“Golf and gourmet vacation in Scotland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2011

We had the pleasure of 7 nights at the Lone Star Luxury Bed and Breakfast, located about 4 miles outside of St. Andrews. Bill and Cheryl have turned a 250 yr. old carriage house into a showplace 4 bedroom B&B - each with a private bath. We relaxed and enjoyed gourmet meals, evening drinks on the patio, playing Bubba the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and generally taking in their hospitality and warmth. Highly recommended, hope to see them again next year!

Bill and Cheryl are the best! They love their country (Scotland and Texas) and the food, rooms and caring attention reflects this legacy of hospitality.

Bill and Cheryl run a truly extraordinary B&B. Fantastic welcome, wonderful food and they went out their way to make it a 'home away from home'. We stayed for 3 days during our son's graduation and will have no hesitation in returning to this 'hidden gem'. Truly a 5 star experience at Lone Star.

Room Tip: Just call Bill and Cheryl

We enjoyed the outstanding hospitality of the owners, Bill and Cheryl. The food, traditional with a gourmet twist, was outstanding.

Friends recommended the Lone Star as a wonderful retreat. Was on golfing expedition with 7 doctor friends staying in St. Andrews. The group joined me for a wonderful 6+ course feast with Cheryl and Bill hosting. Was the highlight of our trip! Even if you can’t get a room here a call to arrange a scrumptious meal is well worth doing!

This is such a hidden gem right outside St Andrews. We have stayed here three times now & I wouldn't stay anywhere else. It is the perfect place for those who want great rooms (esp. the bathrooms!) and the best meals in Scotland. We go to Scotland every year and have stayed in dozens of hotels, b&bs, and castles and we have had a WIDE range of experiences. The owners are a very funny golfing Scotsman and a sunny Texan who happens to be the most amazing gourmet chef. The beds are heaven with sheets like butter, plus they even have a "pillow bar" for pillow snobs like me. All the bathrooms are unique with great plumbing and superb showers - a novelty in Scotland. Next is the food, I can truly say some of my very favorite meals ever have been here.
Just FYI, the website doesn't do it justice, and the location is tricky, it's originally a 17th century(?) carriage house with working farm outbuildings around it so you have to go down a bumpy farm road to get there.

This was our second stay at Lone Star and this stay was even better than the first. We stayed for 2 nights in October 2009 and 2 nights in November 2010.

Our room had a wonderful bed with an ensuite bath and shower. Each room in the house is set out differently, ours also had a lovely sofa and chair.

WiFi is available if you ask and works well. The room also had both a digital radio and iPod dock.

The breakfast was wonderful with a selection of cearals, fresh bread, fresh cooked food and fresh fruit. We had menus prepared for our stay for each morning. We had one evening meal which was as always beautifully prepared and lovely to eat.

Tea and Coffee was also available for us and the owners were happy to provide us with a key for the property so we could return easily when we had been visiting the local area.

St Andrews has a number of attractions. There is the golf course, with which the owners are well connected, along with a number of resturants (some of which have been seen on UK National television). St Andrews is also located between Edniburgh and Dundee and near a number historical Scottish sites.
