Thank you for making our wedding day so special. The service was exceptional towards us and our dog, Benji. All staff were very friendly, our room was great, the space we had to eat in was private and quiet, and on a whole it was a very relaxing day, which is just what we wanted. We can't wait to return.

Family run, boutique hotel just outside St Andrew’s, slightly quirky and catering to an older demographic. Really excellent staff work very hard to look after you and the relaxed atmosphere, including drinks on the patio in the extensive garden, grows on you. Really enjoyed it.

Great hotel with excellent service and great food. We used the hotel as a base to play golf and we would definitely return to the hotel. The grounds are also excellent and helped to make this a very relaxing break.

Very nice family run hotel. Breakfast is outstanding, service level very good. Helping in getting tee-times when golf locations are extremely busy. Thanks for a nice experience. Recommend for staying at St. Andrews.
