“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

We stayed here last month on a mini tour of Scotland and couldnt have been more pleased. If you are happy to be just outside of St Andrews then this is the place to stay.
Very clean and very comfortable. We got an incredibly warm welcome and then were just left to enjoy our space. All rooms are independent from the main house so you feel like you really do have your privacy. Elaine's breakfast was amazing, scrambled eggs and fresh salmon and porridge...what a way to set you up for the day. I couldnt find anything but positives to say about our stay. And I will be going back!

Stayed at the Mansdale House with my new wife. Doug and Elaine are the sweetest people. They made the visit special. They didn't have to, but they spent there time making our short stay a special one. If you are going to stay in St. Andrews, then stay with Doug and Elaine!

Room Tip: The room was great. Ask for the Doocot, but I bet the other two options are great too.

My new husband & I stayed in the Doocot room during our stay & it was better than perfect! Our room was clean with all new appliances and B&B location was great. But the best part was the hospitality of Elaine & Doug...they made delicious breakfasts, recommended places for sightseeing, and were overall cheery & so kind! This was possibly our favorite place that we stayed while on our honeymoon in the UK! If we ever make it back to St. Andrews there is no other place we would stay. Thank you again Elaine & Doug!!!

Our stay at Mansedale House was superb. We used it as a base for four nights and it enhanced our trip immensely. A colleague and I were on a golfing trip and were seeking two ensuite rooms. We were warnly welcomed, despite a very late arrival, and the rooms are fresh and immaculate. Knowing that we are golfers, the host already had our tvs tuned on to the last hour of the Masters. The rooms are spacious, quiet, and have every convenience. Breakfast is excellent, done to order, and timed at our convenience. The Gilberts - Douglas and Elaine - were eager to provide any advice we sought on things to see.
We give our highest recommendation to this B&B. A wonderful experience.

Room Tip: we only saw the rooms in the carriage house, which have been beautifully renovated. the rooms are fr...

Spent a night in the Mansedale on a cycling trip en-route to Edinburgh and enjoyed the stay - Very nice accommodation, the proprietors were very friendly, and the breakfast was second to none.

Will be back for sure

Our trip to St. Andrews was made the lovelier for our stay at the Mansedale House B&B. Elaine and Douglas were the perfect hosts and helpful beyond the call of duty with regards to my requirements as a person with disability. Our room was the Neuk, which was situated in the cottage, beautiful, bright with attention to detail and style. A lovely selection of breakfast foods ranging from fresh fruits, to smoked salmon and traditional Full Scottish Breakfast was very delicious. We will return hopefully sooner than later.

I stayed in Mansedale House for the second time last month.Its a breath of fresh air.
I slept in the Neuk room in the cottage,it is tastefully decorated,fresh and bright.
The en suite is beautifull and really has the best shower i have ever had in a B & B let alone a hotel...
Breakfast is lovely with a large variety of choice & The Eggs benidict is a must.
I would highly recommend this B & B to anyone.
I will definately be back.
