My wife and I spent three very pleasant evenings in Lorimer. The house is in absolutely tip top condition. Our room was large and extremely comfortable. The shower, sometimes a problem in B&Bs, was spacious and modern. Actually, "modern comfort" was a bit of a theme with a flat screen TV in the room, free Wi Fi and an "internet cafe" facility, if you don't have your own laptop. The breakfast, served in an extremely tastefully decorated room, was excellent and included fresh fruit salad - again not something you get very often in a B&B. Overall, Michael and Chris went out of their way to make us comfortable - and we will certainly return.

Just returned from Scotland May 10th. Stayed 3 nights with Mick and Chris. Beautiful B and B 300 yrds from the first tee of the old course. Room was lovely ,including the bathroom with shower,double sinks and towel warmer. Each morning included fresh juices, yogurt, cereals, fresh fruit salad, coffee, tea and tradional scotish breakfast. No need to drive anywhere in town, we parked the car and never moved it until we left. Thanks again to Mick and Chris. Hope too see again.

We were a party of 8 golfers from Ireland who stayed in the Lorimer for 3 nights. Our hosts Mick and Carol were very welcoming, helpful and knowledgable about the golf courses and the restauranants and amenities in the area and were always willing to give advice. Everyone was happy with the size,cleanliness and facilities in the rooms.
The location of the lorimer is perfect, being just a few hundred yards from the 1st tee of the Old Course and within walking distance of he restaurants, shops and sights of St Andrews. The breakfast was freshly cooked to order in the morning and there was plenty of choice for everyone.
Many thanks to Mick and Carol for a memorable stay.

We were lucky enough to spend a night at Lorimer House in June. Incredibly friendly and accommodating hosts, an excellent breakfast, and newly renovated rooms made one of the highlights of our visit to Scotland. The room was most comfortable, with satellite TV and an en suite bathroom. The location -- mere steps away from restaurants, heritage sites, town centre, and most notably the famous Old Course -- made our visit to St Andrews effortless as wells as memorable.

Many thanks to Michael and Christine for a wonderful stay.

While staying only for one evening, we felt nothing but welcome during our stay. Rooms were clean and inviting, and the owners were nothing short of amazing. The location between the course and the historic sites to the north was just what we were looking for and allowed us to complete all of our sightseeing. We managed to enjoy a wonderful home-cooked meal for breakfast before leaving, and would not hesitate to stay again, hopefully next time for slightly longer.
