The property is well kempt and the rooms ,while not large, are comfortable and the bathrooms fine. Breakfast is first class and flexible. The other plus is parking outside the door ,some time limited but others not.

The welcome and comfortable bedrooms are first class, and the breakfast was second to none. Central in St.Andrews for golfing, within walking distance. Shop's on tap and pleasant coastal walks. Will definitely visit again.
