    Nice room, shame no bath after a long day onfeet after sons graduation. Nice communal lounges. Good service.

    Food was very disappointing. This hotel has two rosettes and is very expensive so I was expecting good food. Eneven portions, no vegetables, not really as described and generally of a very poor standard. We were all very disappointed and won't be coming again.

    We were upgraded for free because our allocated room did not have a bath but just a shower and we arrived with a baby who needed a bath ( they did not know We were arriving with a baby since There is not the possibility to specify this on rooms.com) the staff was excellent and extremely helpful so we also decided to have dinner the and it was gorgeous!

    A warm friendly welcome, this Hotel has the real feel of a country house. Luxurious surroundings , and quality bedroom and bathroom fittings. The restaurant served top class food which was well presented and cooked. The staff were efficient and engaging.

    Difficult to find anything to dislike.

    A home from home-very comfortable room! Very pleasant, welcoming, and helpful staff. Super food - top marks for porridge, scrambled eggs and risotto - and reasonably priced! Separate bar which could be used for snacks or full service Good wine list Lovely, extensive and well cared for gardens. Excellent location just outside St Andrews (five minute drive to Town) but in a countryside setting. Super venue/location for a wedding reception. Didn't want to leave!

    No lift!

  • 9.6

    Rooms were excellent & we got upgraded to a classic room which was Spotless. At first we weren't going to dine but changed our mind which was a good choice. Food was top notch especially the truffle macaroni was surprised because it was different than what I expected.main course was excellent especially the gnocchi.we shared a desert which was a sticky toffee soufflé worked well with the basil ice cream staff were pleasant & knowledgeable & relaxed. good atmosphere around the restaurant at dinner would definitely recommend & return £5 for a pint of beer a bit steep

  • 9.2

    The peaceful country house nature of the hotel. The turret room was perfect.

  • 9.2

    The attendifness of the staff & the homely atmosphere of the hotel. The grounds were beautiful at the time of year.

  • 6.2

    My husband and I stayed here for our best friends wedding. As we live in Glasgow we decided to stay over the room cost us £270 but we thought hey its only one night the hotel looks beautiful what can go wrong. Well its only fair to start with the positives first The staff very friendly and we even managed to get an early check in. The free homemade shortbread was a nice touch in the room (23) and even though we had a side room the gardens looked lovely. Now for the not so good. Our room was disappointingly small for the price we had paid and we had a queen size bed. My husband and I are use to a king back home. I would have expected at least a double. The shower room was also very compact the toilet roll holder was behind the door and the sink is the smallest I've seen in a hotel. The industrial fan that whirled in the small hours disturbed our sleep along with the room being too hot I tried to open the window but it wasn't very wide. We did see some of the other rooms and ours was by far the smallest so I would suggest avoiding room 23 as its definately not worth it. Now onto the breakfast service. It was a nice touch having an area reserved for the wedding party so we could all have breakfast. However the service was abit slow and I wouldn't have said it was that busy. We had to keep asking for plates be cleared and we even had to ask for to order our food. The food was fine nothing fancy just your standard breakfast selection.

    The small room and queen size bed we didn't realise it wasn't a double room. Small shower room with tiny sink. The whirling fan in the small hours which eventually went off at 8am and we couldn't fully open the window which was way too hot. Service too slow and not attentive at breakfast.

  • 9.2

    Lovely room and great bathroom. We had dinner here and it was delicious as was breakfast. Would definately stay here again

  • 9.6

    Nothing
