“Fabulous comfortable accommodation and location!”
Reviewed 3 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We’ve just had a lovely weekend at The Residence in St Andrews. This was by far the most suitable accommodation for our party. My wee 85 year old Mum needs wheelchair access and room to move around with her 4 wheel rollator. The generous room sizes allowed for this. More than comfortable beds, sofas, and lovely appliances made us relaxed and at home. And it was fabulous having big high ceilings again! Thank you Gillian and David for your help and prompt communications at all times prior to our stay. We shall definitely return and are recommending to friends and family. Great location and walks on east sands before breakfast every morning!

“Made us feel so welcome”
Reviewed 15 March 2017 for a stay in December 2016

It was the day after boxing day when we arrived at the Residence. We found the house beautifully clean and tidy with a Christmas tree and selection boxes for the kids. We were late arriving but that was no bother to the lovely Gillian. The apartment is a great location for the East Sands and Janetta's icecream shop. We had a wonderful time.

This a really light, comfortable, well equipped apartment in walking distance of the centre of St Andrews and the harbour. Fife Cottages staff are welcoming, helpful and efficient. I have stayed here before and will stay here again.

“Gracious, spacious and well equipped.”
Reviewed 28 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We needed accommodation for visiting grandchildren (and their parents) for a few days just after Christmas. Because one child is asthmatic, and severely allergic to our dogs, they could not stay in our house. In addition, we required enough space to join them for meals.
The Residence met our requirements, including parking places. It was a pleasure to be in a high-ceilinged house, with sash windows, and with effective central heating.
Gillian was very helpful with the arrangements, and even delivered a set of keys to our house..

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Four golfing buddies had a great time in St Andrews and this apartment was perfect for us. Gillian went out of her way by extending her day after our flight was delayed and made sure we were all settled. I have absolutely no complaints about the apartment and we all look forward to next year when we will stay here again.

“Luxury and perfection!!”
Reviewed 9 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Excellent location, spacious, warm luxurious apartment, fully equipped. Top marks for cleanliness, excellent powerful showers, and comfy beds. Only a few minutes walk to the centre, harbour, castle and cathedral, and of course world class golf on your doorstep. Would never attempt to find somewhere better.
