We've stayed there twice. Once last year and another this year. In both times we've been there for one week. Ann and Roy are a lovely couple, the nicest hosts we've ever met. The room has everything we need. It's comfortable and clean. The breakfast is delicious and we have many options. there is easy access to train stations and bus stations, and we can have the timetable from Ann. the bus stop is in front of the house. It coudn't be better.
We've been travelling a lot and this place is the best place we've stayed in.
We've already recommended to our friends.

It's perfect.

We had an great stay at Hawthorn house. Ann was very helpful and even drove us to the wedding we were going to. Her warmth and friendliness were very much appreciated. The room was tidy and spacious and breakfast was great. Thanks!

The room was nice and was exactly what i expected,however, everything else was a bit disappointing. On their site i was lead to believe that there was better transport links to St Andrews and to the station, instead we had to take a taxi almost everywhere. Also as lovely as Ann seemed, as a guest you do not want to listen to constant complaining from your host about their problems. Also the breakfast was a bit of a let down as when I ask for a cooked breakfast I do not expect a pile of bland scrambled eggs with a few bits of meat around the edge, although the bacon was seriously overcooked the black pudding and sausage meat was nice. On the second morning i opted for cereal, which was better but not help yourself so you were presented with a very small amount of your chosen cereal. So too fill me up I stuck to the toast, which can rarely go wrong and some activia yogurt. So overall I think for what you get it is overpriced and i definitely won't be going back because I know I can get better for less.

Really disappointed after this poor review. I certainly didn't see this coming but with hindsight perhaps catching the 2 girls trying to smuggle a non-paying, male friend into a twin bedded room without owners consent, should have been a warning. Normal practice would have been, to ask all 3 to leave but as a parent, would not have had that on my conscience.

Stayed here for a couple of nights to attend a wedding. Very welcoming owners (Ann and Roy) and Ann very kindly delivered us to wedding venue. Room had everything we needed and being at the back of the house was very quiet so good sleep was had! Breakfast was very good apart from 'leathery' bacon (maybe just an off day). A short drive takes you into St Andrews and a drive then a stroll along the sands is a must. Good selection of shops and attractions. For our evening meal we went to the 'local' Tavern. The food was excellent. No hesitation in recommending this B & B.

Room Tip: Twin room at back........very quiet
