When your travelling you expect some kind off sterile/impersonal treatment in the services that you require.Michael and Christine really don't go with that expectations and make you feel like a true guest in their home.It was a very positive experience and I wouldn't have any reservations in recommend it and I will surely comeback.

Truly memorable experience this last summer. The location is fantastic - just a few blocks from the Old Course. The rooms are clean and well appointed. But what sets the place apart are the owners. Mick and Chris Cordner are true hosts. Starting with a great breakfast and finishing with priceless stories and advise on local attractions and of course...

A group of 8 golfers from the U.S. Midwest stayed here for a week in October, 2016, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The location is perfect - about a block from the 1st tee of the Old Course. There were plenty of bars and restaurants within a short walk. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was...

Enjoyable stay here made even more so with the hosts' help with securing a game on the Old Course. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful and being so central you can walk just about everywhere you would want to go. Room well looked after. Only downside was the very small bathroom in the single room. But that's only a very minor...

We were here in late May 2016 and couldn't rate our stay any higher. The breakfast was terrific, rooms clean and Mick and Chris couldn't be more accommodating. With its close proximity to the golf courses and the warm welcome we received we will definitely be back.

My husband and I spent two days here during our short tour of Scotland. We found our hosts to be very welcoming and we really enjoyed our stay. The location in St Andrews was excellent, only 200m from St Andrews Old Course first tee. A great place for tourists and golfers alike. Room adequate and comfortable. Breakfast excellent.
