Great secret in St Andrews
I had a lovely stay.
i was upgraded without needing to ask. The staff were excellent and could not have been more helpful.
Location is perfect for the city centre.
The best thing was the home made shortbread and the sweetest thing was the teddy on the bed.
The most pleasurable thing was to come back at night and find the bed turned down with a hot water bottle - luxury.
I will be back ....

One Nights Stay
We initially looked at this hotel because it was dog friendly. Dogs are allowed to stay in rooms outside the main hotel but not allowed into the hotel or bar which was annoying. The other annoying thing was that the bar menu finishes at 6.30 basically meaning you have to eat in the restaurant or go out to eat. We chose the latter mainly because of the dogs not being allowed in the bar, The hotel room was nice and there was fresh milk available and lovely home made shortbread. The room was warm and there was a hot water bottle placed in the bed at night. There was loads of hot water in the bathroom but the bathroom tiling was a bit aged and there was blackening of the wallpaper with what looked like would. The breakfast however was excellent. There was an excellent selection of fruit compote and a beautiful cooked breakfast. The staff were attentive and the linen was spotless.

We loved it
We had a one night stay for my wife's birthday and loved the hotel. The room was beautiful with lovely views across the gardens. Lots of lovely little touches - home made shortbread, binoculars, and of course Rufus, the 'do not disturb' bear. Great location - in the countryside but 5 minutes from St Andrews town centre. Will definitely be back!

Excellent Stay
We stayed for one night as a treat for graduating university and we had a great night and wished we could have stayed another night. we stayed in room no. 30 which was a huge room and was very quiet. The staff were great and could not fault the hotel. The food we thought was good value for money and although not perfect it was pretty good for the price paid. It is quite expensive so lookout for deals to make it more value for money.
