Very low cost and the rooms are above what you can expect! Would choose this again if I go back to St. Andrews to play in the summertime when students are on vacation! Small rooms with a queensized bed and a bathroom insede the room.

I had to go to St Andrews for a workshop at the University. I heard that the University offer some accommodations for visitors at the University, tourists, ....

A perfectly adequate room, not huge but clean and well equipped. Tv and free wifi. Comfy bed. Pleasant and helpful staff. Great breakfast with large choice. The corridors are a little long but there are some rooms nearer reception.

Stayed here for a cheap weekend away in St Andrews as many of the other hotels are so expensive. Room was fine and perfectly equipped for a few nights stay. Managed to get a good nights sleep, however, the maids seemed to be kicking people out before check out time (which if i can remember check out was around 10am...

Staying at Agnes Blackadder Hall is an experience not worth repeating. The room was cramped and stuffy. We could only reach it by walking through endless overheated corridors. There was almost no water pressure so showering presented something of a challenge and after flushing the toilet we had to wait for 10 minutes before we could flush again. For the...

I stayed in these halls of residence with my husband in August for a couple of nights. The rooms were very clean and breakfast was very good. The halls are only a 5 -10 minutes walk to the centre of St Andrews and have free car parking.

We stayed in Agnes Blackadder Hall for a conference in the university. The room was pretty small, a huge desk takes too much room (but it's supposed to be a student accommodation anyways) but the double bed comfortable and the shower clean. A kettle, coffee and tea where available in the room, a paid shared laundry room and a free...

I took a coach party of 27 from Liverpool to St Andrew's for our annual church pilgrimage and we stayed at Agnes Blackadder as our base. Rooms, food and facilities were all excellent for this type of accommodation and the staff were welcoming and friendly. Our coach driver commented that it was better than many hotels he had stayed in....
