“Beautiful rooms”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Beautifully appointed rooms, clean and comfortable. Definitely a cut above the usual guest house experience.

The guest house was lovely. Stayed as part of a group of 10 and the owners were really hospitable. The rooms are beautifully decorated in their own individual theme and cosy. Although parking outside was minimal there was plenty free parking on a street a couple of minutes walk away. Would definitely stay there again when visiting St Andrews.

It's a very nice location and our large room was quite pleasant and well appointed. In addition to the coffee and tea, there were a few nice snacks left for us. Joseph was extremely helpful and offered to assist in any way (including carrying suitcases up the 2 flights of stairs in our case).

As others have noted, the biggest issue is probably the lack of breakfast being provided. There are plenty of places in town that do serve breakfast, but it was hard to find a real breakfast before 9 am so this might be inconvenient for you if you're an early riser. There is a grocery just down the block and several restaurants in easy walking distance.

My wife and I stayed for one night in June as part of a Scottish tour. The location is superb, immediately opposite the Students Union, with everything you could wish to see within easy walking distance. On arrival, the host was extremely helpful. The room was clean, well proportioned and tastefully decorated, with a well appointed shower room. Parking outside is free after 5pm and before 9am, which suited us quite well. The only disadvantage is that they don't do breakfast, though it is easily available locally.

Our room was grubby and the carpet and furniture were old and tatty. The shower was covered in mould and the water did not run away. The towels were the size of postage stamps and we had only one each. One electric socket had a chunk chipped out of it. The kettle plug "fizzed" when it was plugged into the adaptor that was provided and the kettle heated up only intermittently.
They don't serve breakfast and the chap running it - who it has to be said was helpful - told us it was the cheapest boarding house in St Andrews. So it should be. However, at nearly £100 per night per room, it was hardly cheap.

Lovely accommodation at reasonable price. Made to feel very welcome by hosts in home from home. Lovely breakfast at nearby eaterie as recommended by owners of West Park House. Taxi service offered which was much appreciated. However, owners should consider displaying taxi fares as they charged almost double the fare to Leuchars station we had paid the day before when using station taxi service. Would definitely stay again though. St Andrews a lovely place to visit.

This is a great hotel. We stayed one night in St Andrews and were so pleased about the hotel's central location.
The decor is modern and tasteful and the staff could not have been more helpful. Would definitely go back.
