“Perfect location - Central yet peaceful”
Reviewed March 8, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have stayed at North star before but this was the first time since it has been refurbished.
It feels bright,specious, clean and up to date. We love the location - perfect for walking into town, to the beaches or the cathedral. Our kids (9 and 11) can walk the short distance into town unaccompanied (they love the freedom!) The large, secure garden was great for the dog - and has also been improved. We look forward to the seeing play house on our our next visit!
It was clean, there was plenty of cooking equipment and we liked the welcome cake !!

“We'll be back”
Reviewed March 8, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed for a week in the apartment for my wife's 50th birthday and it was ideal for six of us. Very well equipped kitchen and had everything you need. We especially liked the chocolate cake and wine which had been left for us! We are definitely planning on coming back next year. We had one small problem with the heating which was sorted out immediately. Would recommend staying here as it has a great location and is very close to the shops and restaurants.

“You won't find any better located or equipped holiday let in St Andrews”
Reviewed March 5, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Having stayed last year in Scribbles (lovely one bed flat below) with my wife, we brought our one year old this time and stayed in the newly refurbished North Star. Shona provides such a warm welcome for her guests from the 'pack of treats' to the beautifully presented bedrooms. Our wee boy was delighted with the cupboard full of toys and with a high chair, cot, bedding etc laid on, it made our packing/journey considerably easier. We really couldn't fault the property the location is fantastic, particularly with small children in tow. Walking to the beach, harbour, town centre was really easy and ample free parking right outside the property is a big bonus. St Andrew's itself is a lovely town with a great selection of restaurants, pubs, independent shops and whilst cold in February we had a fantastic walk on the beach. Will definitely be back. Thanks again Shona.

Many thanks for your review. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and that your son enjoyed the books and toys etc. Shame the little playhouse in the garden was put in the day you left! Next time he will enjoy playing in it... Kind regards, Shona

“The name is North Star should be GOLD STAR”

person found this review helpful

We recently stayed at the North Star St Andrews for a nine day break this holiday accommodation proved to be an excellent choice with a high quality finish. The standard of the rooms, beds,bed linen, towels and toiletries offered was excellent. With a well equipped kitchen and all appliances in great order .the lounge was perfect for relaxing. The small touches on arrival of a scrummy cake and wine were a fabulous touch making you feel most welcome. The North Star is a gem and in a superb location for all St Andrews has to offer. We will most definitely return

“Great apartment and location”
Reviewed October 8, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Location is excellent. Apt nicer than pictures. Great service. Perhaps updated kitchen would be only complaint. Shona made a real effort to make sure our stay was pleasant. We have a baby and she loaned us crib/stroller/etc. not sure about value because my husband looked into that aspect of the booking.
