Pinewood Country House
Ranked #1 of 2 St Michaels B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Stayed two nights here while visiting St Andrews and had an absolutely wonderful experience! We were arriving later than expected the first night because we got lost on the way! Called Karen to let her know and she gave us much better directions, as well as recommending the St Michael's Inn on the way in to stop for dinner. Dinner here was lovely! When we arrived late that evening at the house Karen was there to show us to our room, which was great! It was spotlessly clean, had a nice large bathroom and the beds were quite comfy! The amenities were great as well, and she had a nice packet of information in the room! LOVED the breakfast she made for us in the mornings and loved getting to chat with her and her sweet dog! We had an absolutely amazing time here and would definitely stay again if we ever make it back to the area!!

Accomodation was brilliant.

A truly wonderful time, this guest house felt very homely and cosy. We had a family room, the beds were snug, and had outstanding bed linen. We were on the top floor, and it was all one room.
There were games which we were free to play, and the service was lovely, with Karen. The breakfast was delightful, with menus which you pre-order. Karen also had a lovely brown Labrador, Bell, which we thought was great. All in all, an enjoyable experience.

My wife, daughter and I had a family room for two nights, and very pleasant it was. Clean, comfortable and not at all expensive.Breakfast was well cooked, and Tom and Karen were excellent, friendly hosts.

We stayed for 3 nights with our children and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Karen was friendly and helpful throughout the weekend and very accomodating to us all. The rooms were very spacious and very clean. The kids loved all the DVDs and games that they could play in the room. Breakfast was great and you could pick and chose what you had. Overall a lovely place to stay with the advantage of just being 10 minutes outside St Andrews.

Thank you for reviewing your stay. I'm really glad that the children felt comfortable and that all the games and DVDs came in handy as I know what it's like keeping the young ones entertained. We pride ourselves in being a family friendly guest house and feel we cater for all ages. The fact that the children were entertained hopefully meant you had a relaxing stay also.

We recently spent an overnight at the Pinewood Country House. We were met at the door with a welcoming smile from Karen who showed us to our room. The room was spacious, bright, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We asked Karen if there was anywhere that she could recommend to have a bite to eat. Karen suggested the local St Michaels Inn/Hotel at the end of the road some quarter of a mile away or we might try the restaurants in St Andrews. We decide to check out the local inn/hotel and went into the lounge for a drink.The girl behind the bar asked if we wanted food but we said that we just wanted a drink at the time since it was too early to eat. We were quickly directed into the public bar! Not the place that I would normally take my wife for a refreshment, so needlessly to say we gave this place a wide birth! Once back at Pinewood House we found information in our room with a list of suggested restaurants based in St Andrews which we found very helpful, a nice touch by the proprietor! We visited one of the recommended restaurants in St Andrews i.e.The Dolls House, well worth a visit! After a comfortable night in the Pinewood we were afforded a lovely breakfast cooked to order and a friendly chat with Karen. We really enjoyed our stay at the Pinewood and hope to return and would thoroughly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Although this is primarily a guest house it surpasses many four star hotels that we have visited.

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay. I'm glad you found our welcome folder helpful in choosing a restaurant in St Andrews. I try to include as much information in these folders as possible without it being to much of a read. We hope to see you again some time at Pinewood.

This was a very nice country house to spend a few days in, The bedrooms were roomy and well appointed, breakfast was selected the night before from a varied menu of local produce.The proprietor Karen was excellent, very attentive, and full of conversation.There was a slight noise from the traffic passing by just outside the house but that did not cause us any problems. The country house is a short drive from St Andrews which is great if like us you dont want to stay right in the centre of town, and preffer a country setting. In the small village about two hundred yards from the house is the St Micheal Hotel which serves some good food, the service from staff in the lounge was great,no long waits for food and no dirty tables what a pleasure to go into an establishment that is being properly run.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I know you were particularly interested in the wildlife and went on a walk in St Michaels Wood which is situated just behind the house. We are so lucky to have such a diverse selection of wildlife from deer to red squirrel and so many types of birds. We hope to see you back at Pinewood in the future.
