Great staff, great location. For the money you can't beat it especially with the great breakfast included. Parking is free if you can find a space. Really a great staff, will stay there again. Room is small but this is the UK, so normal.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great location only a few minutes walk from town, to the bars and restaurants. Comfy bed and really nice breakfast service with a range of cereals, fruits, pastrys and a choice of warm breakfasts from the wenu. The only thing with the hotel is you can hear every one coming and going and we didn't sleep very well at all. Woken by people coming in from bars, then in the morning by early golfers. I don't think I would choose this hotel again everything was great apart from the sleep. But for the price you can't really moan.

The hotel was a typical small hotel you see in this part of the world. Breakfast was great, staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and neat. If you like small hotels, this is a good one. Also parking in front was readily available-a big deal in St. Andrews

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Absolutely terrific staff; subtle Scottish decor; updating with taste and good sense given age of property; terrific breakfasts. Any suggestions run into the fact that this is an old, listed, building, and these folks do a brilliant job of having amenities while keeping the charm of an old building. And so convenient to everything.
