Stayed at The Old Station recently as my husband and I were attending a wedding at another hotel in the area. The guest house was warm and cosy. Equally warm was the welcome from the owners' parents who were looking after things while the owners took a well-earned break! The accommodation was very comfortable and a lot of thought had...

We discovered the Old Station in April 2012 when we booked 2 rooms for a short family break. We had no hesitation in phoning Colin and Fiona when we decided to visit St Andrews again in October. This time however, we booked both carriages for 2 nights (which was a big surprise for the children) and its been the most...

We were two couples playing golf and this was our first stop. Colin and Fiona are truly great hosts. They helped us with golf tee times and dinner arrangements. They were warm and made us feel right at home. Thanks to them our trip got off to the perfect start. The accommodations were lovely with large rooms, king sized beds...

The Old Station is just 2 miles outside of St. Andrews and is a small B&B that ranks very well with the myriad of B&Bs to choose from. The owners are very friendly and the ambiance is quiet and rural. It is on the site of an old railway station but that is not really evident unless you stay in...

It would have been a nice B&B if you were paying £50 a day, but for £120 you'd definitely expect a much higher service standard and better customer-oriented behaviour. There were plus and minus points about our stay. The rural setting was beautiful and the breakfast room was nice and cosy. Breakfast itself was fine with plenty of options. However,...

I am sorry you had a problem with " daddy long legs " in your room, at this time of year they are difficult to control in the countryside in this damp environment that we would all love do be without. If you did experience any dead ones then I can only apologise as we are not able to check...

Picture the scene - you enter your allocated railway carriage and are immediately hit by the sense of luxury. This will be your home for the next few days and already the Colonial style decor looks inviting. A lounge with comfortable seats, tv and dvd player overlooks your own private balcony located at the rear of the carriage. A decanter...

We booked in at The Station Inn for the weekend of a friends wedding. I had phoned up about a month and a half earlier to book, spoke to a lovely man and explained that we were flying up from London so wouldn't arrive until approximately 10 at night. The manager saw no problem with this and told us he...

Well what can I say? The Old Station was the right choice as my daughter was playing golf at St.Andrews, which is only minutes away. Colin and Fiona are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble especially the wonderful breakfast. Well, now what can I say about the carriage? Choo, Choo! Words cannot express our 4 night stay -...

Visiting St. Andrews for a long weekend and wedding, The Old Station couldn't have been more appropriately placed. Having to travel between St. Andrews, Crail and other coastal towns in the area we were ideally situated. The grounds of The Old Station were immaculately kept as was the cleanliness of our bedroom and the communal areas. The quiet countryside settings,...
