Minutes from the Old Course , downtown and the university. We had room #2 and it was spacious with a fabulous bay window, lovely scottish decor and excellent bathroom. The breakfast had great variety and was absolutely delicious!! Tea, coffee,cookies and fruit always available. Gillian was helpful and interesting. A lovely sitting room. Fresh flowers every day. Perfect!

I stayed at Montague Guest House whilst visiting on business and was very impressed. My room and bathroom were quite large and well furnished. The free (and reliable) wifi in the hotel allowed me to catch up on work in the evenings without having the same problems I have had with other hotels. Also the breakfast was very good and set me up for long days of meetings. I would recommend this place to anyone, whether travelling for business or on holiday.

We stayed in Montaque House in July and absolutely loved our stay there. The owners, the Kerachers, were very accommodating and offered lovely selections for breakfast every morning; haggis was enjoyed by my husband daily. We had a lovely view from our bedroom and enjoyed the convenience of coming and going at our leisure. Montaque House's location is perfect for a 4-5 day stay in St Andrews; shopping is just around the corner and it is only a short distance from the Old Course. We enjoyed our stay and will probably return next year for more golf in St Andrews. I guess my only complaint is that my stay was not long enough!

Overall this is a good place for a short stay. The location is very good, close to everything, but the St. Andrews is not a big place, so this applies to most other B&Bs. The food was decent and at times enjoyable - try omelette with smoked local salmon/herring in particular.
Hosts are pleasant. Free internet is only available downstairs with your own laptop. Since there is no elevator you may think twice before carrying your laptop down and up 3 flights of steep stairs. The room was very small, however - a bed aside, could not find a place to put a suitcase on; ended up keeping it on the armchair. Same goes for a washroom/shower - literally no room to squeeze a bath mat between the shower stall and a toilet; I had to squeeze myself sideways between the toilet and the wall to get to the shower. In all fairness, a double-bed room I caught a glimpse of from the stairs seemed to be a normal size.

This was by no means a cheap accommodation but was still a great value for the level of comfort and quality provided. We stayed in room #3 with a bay window overlooking the street. The window seat offered a view of St. Andrew's Bay and a great perch from which to read or write at the end of a day of sightseeing. The bathroom was spotless, the mattress heavenly, and the espresso machine in the parlor at the end of a damp, cold day was welcoming. Internet is available for free but the walls are so thick you have to sit in the parlor to get a signal. The espresso machine and free shortbread cookies in the parlor make it no hardship though.

We stayed in the Montague House for three nights, September 5-7. For most of our group of twelve golfers, it was our second stay with Gillie and Andrew, the first in 2007. That we would come back to the Montague House, amid all the other available choices in St. Andrews, indicates our satisfaction. This Murray Park B&B is so conveniently located to the first tee at the Old Course and various pubs and restaurants. The rooms are comfortable and clean, all en suite, and the proprietors could not be more hospitable or helpful. The breakfasts are varied and prepared very well, and our hosts were eager to help us with all our needs: reservations at local restaurants, transportation to the local and nearby courses, really, anything we needed. Any group looking for that elusive combination of quality and value will be well-served at the Montague House.

What a delightful place Montague House is! From the moment we set foot inside the door, we were warmly welcomed. The house had a small dining and sitting area, which offered teas, coffees and hot chocolate, as well as a selection of biscuits – a lovely touch after a brisk walk on the beach!

The bedroom we stayed in was at the back of the house overlooking a pleasant garden. It was a decent size and nicely furnished with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, a large flat screen TV with Sky and a massive bathroom with complimentary hand wash and moisturiser from a local stockist.

The breakfast was to die for! A vast choice was on hand which you had to select on a slip of paper the night before. The full Scottish Breakfast with haggis was on offer, as well as French toast, free range scrambled eggs, fruit, continental breakfast, omelettes or just about any combination of these as you wanted. The owners, Andrew and Gillian were more than accommodating.

The location was close to town, near the beach and down a side street so it was peaceful and quiet. We were there for a wedding and there was lots of to-ing and fro-ing throughout the weekend, but it wasn't a problem at all and we were given our own front door key to come and go as we pleased. I couldn't ask for a better stay in such a quaint and friendly guest house. Would absolutely stay at Montague Guest House if I happen to visit the gorgeous town of St. Andrews again!
