Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

5 of us stayed in a self catering flat. Accommodation was clean and comfortable, reasonably well equipped.Plenty of parking. Staff helpful. 30 minute walk to town, and regular bus service. Good accommodation for the price, relative to what other accommodation in the area costs. Would recommend.

After living in few different countries as student, I can say this place is worst type of accommodation for students and none-students! Walls are made out of paper and you can hear everyone in the flat. Even when they just walking or putting a cup of tea on their desk. Fire doors are being slammed all over the building giving you a feeling that you are in battlefield and bombs going off around you all the time. Wait for when you wake up in the morning with someone slamming the door! Faulty fire alarm systems drags you out of your bed every few weeks in early morning.

Stayed overnight while attending a wedding. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were basic but clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was buffet style with a good selection of cooked food/cereal/fresh fruit etc which was as good as you’d get in any hotel. Overall I was pleasantly surprised at how good the whole experience was and would definitely stay here again.

Stayed 3 nights in 5 bedroom flat with lounge/kitchen area. All bedrooms are doubles with en-suite. This was an ideal arrangement for the 4 of us on a golfing break. This student accommodation is basic but the rooms have been refurbished recently and were ideal for our needs. Booked well in advance and the rate was very good. Bathrooms are small ‘wet rooms’ and although the shower was good with plenty of hot water, there was not a lot of room because of the shower curtain (minor issue though). We used taxis to get into St Andrews in about 5 mins at a cost of ~£5. For the money we found this to be a good choice and the location was reasonably close to town (20 min walk). We were lucky that the weather was terrific for all 4 days of our trip. Golfed very day at either St Andrews or Crail and we all had a great time. Good choice if you are happy with a relatively basic accommodation with no luxury thrills.

Another perfect stay in St Andrews, accommodation spot on. Great location and bus stop within campus if the walk into town and back too much 😀. As always staff as friendly as ever will be back, highly recommend for the money

Kitchen was all sticky. Flats not well maintained generally. Wi-Fi is rubbish. Many of the staff have a disgusting attitude towards guests. Reception is as unhelpful and contradictory as could be. Very unaccomadating to guests needs, in getting luggage from flats to parking area.

Rented these apartments on an ITISON deal and we were not disappointed. We had 5 bedrooms all with en suites and good lounge/kitchen. Welcome bottle of fizz into the bargain which was a lovely touch. We were lucky with fabulous weather but even it had been awful there is lots to do in and around the surrounding area. I read before we went it was a long way out of town but i didn't that it was. I suppose it depends what you consider a long walk. We did get a taxi back some evenings but most we paid for one was £6.

The apartment was booked for a small family get-together, three singles and two couples occupying a five-room apartment. Overall this was a positive experience and is good value accommodation for expensive St Andrews. It was what you can expect from student halls, the apartment was clean with a small kitchen area with all that you would need for food preparation and a small seating area but only enough soft seats for four persons. The refectory was a five-minute walk from the apartment block and offered an excellent breakfast choice at a very reasonable cost, £4 for continental or £8 for a full cooked breakfast. Car parking is available close to the apartments. However, there are a few points to be aware of. While the information states that an apartment can accommodate up to 10 persons the apartment would be badly overcrowded. Each room, while adequate for a single person with a small (cramped) shower room/toilet is a tight fir for a couple. Likewise the bed is not a full double, more three-quarter size and therefore not too comfortable. The David Russell Apartments are located over a mile from the centre of town and a good twenty minute walk for a fit person. However, it is easy to get a taxi for up to eight persons ordered from reception and costs less than £5 into town. During vacation time the cleaning and much other hospitality wok is done by students but this adds interest as we found them all very helpful and friendly. Overall, therefore, an enjoyable stay as a group.
