My husband and I went to St. Andrew's for our 12th wedding anniversary. We had stayed there in the past, before their renovations, and liked the guesthouse, area, restaurant and gift shop.
We were offered a "deal" which also tempted us to return.
We paid 482 NIS ($1=~3.88 New Israeli Shekels) for one night, bed and breakfast. When we asked about dinner, we were told that the restaurant had been removed during the renovations. The charming gift shop had moved and was open only occasionally.
Our room had 2 single beds, a desk, a small toilet/shower and an air conditioner, which was a blessing because it was very hot.
There was one television, in the library, but the antenna wasn't working so every channel was fuzzy.
Breakfast was ample, but the vegetables and cheeses had been recycled from previous meals.
When we checked out, I asked if I could fill my little 500 ml. (~2 cups) water bottle as it was 38 degrees Celsius outside. To my amazement, I was told that it was not allowed. As I am of Scottish decent, I know how thrifty they are, but this was unkind, to say the least. In the end, I was allowed to fill my bottle half way and was told by the poor receptionist that this was being filmed by their security camera.
