“Fabulous property, great location.”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a quaint house is on one of the three main streets in St. Andrews. It is has a fully equipped kitchen with new and modern appliances and a dining table, a small living room to gather in and four bedrooms and one full and one 3/4 bathroom.
The property was ideally located for us as golfers, we walked about 4 blocks to the Old Course and took the St. Andrews shuttle back which dropped us 1/2 block from our door. The bus station is closer yet at only 2+ blocks away. Some reviewers commented on the street noise, which we noticed too with the students arriving back to school. We brought earplugs and none of the four of us lost a wink of sleep. We wouldn't have changed to a quieter location, we loved the house and the where it is!
We did not have the good fortune to meet Adam, but we thank him for his prompt responses to our inquiries and for quickly returning our deposit. It was a very nice experience overall.
Each of the four of us would highly recommend this property.

“Simply wonderful!”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

As it's been 50 years since we first went up to University in St Andrews, we decided a reunion was called for. 1 Rose Lane was the perfect base; centrally located, beautifully equipped and a delightful place to sit and talk at the end of the day.
We had marvellous service from Gillian of Fife Cottages, who provided a contact phone number and lots of helpful advice.
We had a wonderful time and would love to return - ideally before another 50 years go by!

“Fabulous accomodation, great location, 5* service”
Reviewed 1 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I stayed at 1 rose place with 7 friends for a reunion weekend. Before arriving the property manager called to clarify what way we would like beds made up and to inform me about parking and kitchen amenities. She left her phone number so we had a point of contact throughout the weekend should we need it which was a great help.

The property itself is beautiful and in a great location. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with everything you need to cook for 8 people. The appliances were brand new and in perfect working order and the welcome folder had instructions for things like heating and hot water. The living room is a great size and has TV with lots of channels and lots of board games and cards should it rain. All bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and really nicely decorated.

St Andrews itself was charming. The locals were lovely and the town is well served by several bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. The beaches and golf courses make for great walks and photo opportunities.

All together a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend it to a group of people looking for a getaway!!

We,six adults and one 2 year old child,stayed at 1 Rose Lane to attend a wedding. We arrived on a cold November day and were delighted to enter a lovely warm house. A well equipped modern kitchen and living room is on the ground floor with 4 comfortable bedrooms over two floors above.
The property is centrally situated in the town,we visited a nearby restaurant,indian restaurant,pizza shop & st salvator chapel...all on foot! There is a taxi rank close by.

“Perfect accommodation perfect location.”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Myself and my 6 friends who stayed at 1 Rose Lane for a 2 night stay absolutely loved the house and the location. We would like to say a big thankyou to Gillian the operation manager of Fife cottages for being flexible about our arrival and departure times. She allowed us early access to the property and a later departure time. The accommodation was perfect for a large group. The house was immaculate and so well equipped. We were all especially impressed by the 2 dishwashers!! We all agreed that there was not one negative thing about our stay. We also agreed that we would return to 1 Rose Lane and would highly recommend a visit. However, if you find stairs a problem it may not be ideal as there were 2 flights of stairs to access bedrooms and bathrooms. This was not a problem for our group as we are all pretty fit.

“first class accommodation, the perfect base for a relaxed luxury weekend in St Andrews”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This place was the best self catering accommodation I've ever stayed in. Well equipped, comfortable yet modern and perfectly located in the heart of St Andrews I would recommend it to anyone. It had everything: style, character, convenience, a real home from home feel about it, a modern and well equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms, great shower, and when we arrived on a cold October evening the place was wonderfully warm. The perfect base for a relaxed luxury weekend in St Andrews.
