“Lovely Apartment in a great location”
Reviewed February 19, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed at this fantastic apartment at half term week. Myself, husband, teenage son and our King Charles cavalier dog. It is a beautiful, modern apartment with Sky TV and lots of lovely touches such as wine, flowers and cake to greet us on our arrival and also milk ,bread, coffee etc left for us after our long journey. The apartment has a lovely small rear garden which was brilliant for our dog. It's location is perfect for everything in St Andrews. The shops and restaurants were literally around the corner and the beach/ Old Course golf was a pleasant 10 minute walk. Free parking outside the apartment was great and of course the beautiful old buildings of St Andrews university are all around you. A fantastic apartment in a lovely historic setting. Will definitely be back soon.

“Enjoyable relaxing stay in lovely house”
Reviewed November 19, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

My husband and I enjoyed a 3 day break at this property in November 2015 and were joined by our 3 children for one night. We were welcomed to the property with wine and a cake.
The house was lovely, warm, fresh and modern with very comfortable beds and kitchen/lounge area. We were out and about alot and found the central location very handy. The bedrooms are on the ground level of the property with the kitchen/ lounge area upstairs and this was a slight problem for us as we had our lovely labrador dog with us and she refused to move from the hall area upstairs. I think she found the wooden floors too slippy to risk moving upstairs.
I would recommend this property to others.
Thank you for a lovely stay.

“Great Location with Wonderful Hospitality”

person found this review helpful

I was fortunate to rent North Star for The Open Championship. There were six adults in my group. I consider Shona my host as she was extremely hospitable. Two minor issues arose which Shona addressed immediately. The patio and back yard were wonderful to have when the weather was suitable. Shona spoiled us with coffee and goodies on our arrival. I look forward to staying at North Star again.

“Another great stay! ”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We returned to North Star for our 2nd visit this year. The sun shone for a lot of our stay which gave us the opportunity to enjoy the garden. As before we had everything we needed and really enjoyed our stay. Hopefully we'll be back again soon! :)

“Classic St Andrews, great location”
Reviewed June 10, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I've stayed at 40 North Street 3 or 4 times now, and love it. It's in a perfect location, central enough to soak up the unique atmosphere of St Andrews, but at the right end of North Street to be able to relax, and to have more chance of parking. The refurbishing has left it really light and airy, a much more modern flavour than before. The bedrooms/bathrooms are lovely, a decent size and nicely decorated, and the upstairs room has fantastic views over the traditional St Andrews rooftops, and onto the University's Graduation Hall. Kitchen is well equipped, sofas very comfortable, though perhaps a bigger coffee table might be an idea, now that the room has been extended/refurbished. Shona always responds really quickly if there are any minor issues, makes you feel that nothing is too much trouble and gives you a very warm welcome with cake and wine!. Our only small reservation would be the recent addition of swings and playhouse in the lovely walled garden - we've no doubt that for some they're a benefit, but for us they spoil the garden and the view. It won't stop us wanting to go back though!

Many thanks for your review and your kind words. I have noted your comments re the coffee table and will consider getting a larger coffee table or perhaps further small side tables for near the sofas. I also welcome your feedback about the swings / slide as I am keen to hear what this year's guests make of this new addition to the garden before deciding whether to leave them or remove them for next summer. Thank you for your continued support. I hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, Shona

Many thanks for your review. I am so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay and that your son liked the toys, books and DVDs which we provide for children. We now have a small playhouse and swing set in the garden which I am sure he would love! I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, Shona
