We stayed with Mick and Chris for 5 nights in October. They are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They were always happy to provide suggestions for things to do and places to eat. They helped me plan a day trip to Edinburgh that was a breeze to do. As well they are able to arrange a very reasonably priced laundry service which we happily took advantage of.
We had room 5. It is a lovely large room overlooking the street. In fact it is the room that is pictured above. If memory serves it was renovated last year. It has a really nice size bathroom with dual sinks and a spacious shower. The only challenge I had was the vessel sinks were on a tall vanity and being short it was a little awkward for me. The bathroom and room are kept absolutely spotless. The bed is comfortable. Our room was at the front of the building so there can be noise at night from people on the street so you may want a different room if you like to go to bed early or wake up late. It was so nice to have a room with plenty of space and storage to settle into during our stay. The other places we stayed during our extended trip to the UK were so small with little storage. This was fantastic.
They do a wonderful made to order breakfast that will give you a great start to your day. The guys had an early tee time one morning and they were very accommodating so the guys were able to get something for breakfast before they headed out.
The location is great, a very short walk to shopping, golf courses and restaurants.
I highly recommend this guest house to anyone visiting St Andrews especially golfers as they are both avid golfers and can provide great insights into golf in the area.
