Stayed a night just before Christmas. It’s a car ride from the centre of St Andrews. Only us and another couple staying. It’s a chintzy kind of place except the dining room which is calmer and nicer. Room was good - lots of space, Molton Brown toiletries. We could only have a drink in our rooms but the great staff took us through all they had. Breakfast had to be ordered the day before. Grounds are nice though the kitchen garden looked a bit abandoned. Felt COVID safe though easier with no one around.

Given the restrictions the hotel are working under in tier 3 the stay felt safe and welcoming. The rural location but convenient for St Andrews and the East coast makes this a great location to escape the current stresses of life.

I choose this hotel to celebrate my birthday. One of the best accomodations in the area. Everything was great, the room size, comfort, staff, the food. The food was amazing, located a few miles away from the centre of S.Andrews, quite area. It's definitely a lovely place to stay.

Stayed at the end of October 2020, when Scotland very under tighter restrictions. Staff made the stay enjoyable. Lovely room for us and our small dog. Celebrating 30th wedding Anniversary and cannot fault anything with the stay.
