Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

The people here are great. We had a fantastic stay for 6 days. Walk to the old course and castle or just about anywhere in st andrews. The bar was great for watching world cup or just hanging out while waiting for friends. Made for an easy trip. Would stay here again for sure.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

We stayed at the hotel for 5 days in April. The manager of the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. What ever question we asked she answered with a smile.She went out of her way to get us the answer. The bartenders and the waiters and waitresses were also very friendly. The rooms were not luxurious but they were very comfortable, clean and large enough.

Stayed in March and thoroughly enjoyed the stay, the room was large and clean, the breakfast was great and the staff very friendly. Throw in the central location, easy access to both the golf courses and the great selection of pubs restaurants that St Andrews have to offer

One night stay for a Wedding. Very very pleasant staff. Great location centre of St Andrews. Nice breakfast. Downside: finding parking and if you get a spot by the Hotel: the coating of seagull #### on the car every morning!

The best things in this hotel are its really large rooms - very, very large! - and its breakfast, simply DELICIOUS and... huge :) I advise to select the Scottish breakfast at least once. I would disagree with Brandon's review as the service is really friendly (as everything in this little town). As I now work in St Andrews I had occasional lunches at Greyfriars with visiting friends and they thought they were great! The hotel is located in the heart of the town - however note St Andrews is VERY SMALL, so location does not really matter as much as everything is handy.

I just spent four nights at this hotel and I was truly sorry to leave. From the minute I walked in and got a warm greeting from the innkeepers, I felt like it was my home away from home in St. Andrews. It's charming, clean, and the food in the restaurant is fantastic. (I would rate it as the best breakfast I had in all of Scotland!) Greyfriars is conveniently located in the heart of town, so an easy walk to the Castle and Cathedral ruins and shopping. And if you're playing golf, it's just two blocks to the first tee at the Old Course. so you can walk there. Best of all, there was a free parking lot right next door, so easy parking every day. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Super friendly, super value.

Stayed here for a visit to the university , very pleasant welcome on arrival , large family room, which was great for our visit. Breakfast was good. Staff very friendly albeit very busy. Great location for our purpose , managed to park our car near by and then we were able to walk everywhere we needed to be.
