St Andrews is renown for expensive golf course hotels, period BnBs and further afield accommodation - however, if one is prepared to look for something different and modest look no further, The New Inn is the place. At fist, the check in via the pub is a tad intimidating, but soon the friendliness of the staff and the relaxed atmosphere... More

On the night I visited it was very quiet and struck me as a locals pub. Not unfriendly but not overly welcoming either. It reminded me of the scene in trainspotting where the American tourist finds himself off the beaten track and gets into bother. It wasn't like that really because I think it must receive its fair share of... More

We experienced very friendly staff from the welcome to the departure and the bar staff. Yes the decor is dated but here, the service outweighed how I felt about the decor. Had everything we needed, close drinks and then the bed close after that.

The hotel is not in the city center, but about 15 minutes from there. But most of the hotels were booked. Our room was simple, but large. The breakfast in the morning is OK, but it is served in the back of the bar. No parking places, the parking is just on the street.

This is a good choice for affordable accommodation and a good base to plan your days. The bathroom area was pretty large and the hot water and pressure were great. The breakfast was cooked to order and everyone was incredible nice. They even recommended a place for a very late dinner a short cab ride away. We appreciate the hospitality.

Had a few days in St Andrews before a wedding - and wanted to play a bit of golf. To be honest, most of the town seemed booked up, and what was free was very expensive. But the New Inn was available and worked out really well. It is not five-star luxury but the people we met - the owner,... More

We stayed in a very large room with 3 single beds for 3 adults. There was plenty of room for all of our luggage. I believe there was even a cot in our room, but we didn't look at it. It is within walking distance to the town center, but we took a cab due to the weather. The bartender... More

Inn could benefit from a refurbishment, if you are accommodated in the room titled "New Inn" I would suggest putting the radiator off in the bathroom before retiring, it makes an annoying noise and I only discovered it was the radiator on our second night.
