Perfect B&B -
We Stayed in the carriage for three nights in the middle of Febuary, very warm and cosy, kitchen was a great bonus. We used the the pool table every night which was lots of fun also borrowed a couple DVDs and books from the library. Breakfast was cooked for us exactly how we wanted it and was delicious. The owners were very friendly and great hosts. Highly recommended staying in the carriage.

Very nice -
We booked this B&B as we were taking relatives who were over from the USA to St Andrews for a golfing holiday.Our room was very comfortable, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and kettle. Toiletries in bathroom and nice big fluffy white towels.Breakfast was a feast, if you go away hungry then it’s your own fault!Help yourself to cereals, yogurts, croissants and 2 huge bowls of blueberries and strawberries plus juice. A cooked breakfast to follow and toast sets you up until dinner that evening.Alisa is a lovely pleasant lady very keen to accommodate. The bonus there is free parking which is non excustant in the town!It’s about a 5-8 minute drive into St.Andrews

Fab welcome and great surroundings but one downside... -
This is he 2nd time I've stayed in the railway carriage and the welcome was excellent.. The train carriage is really quirky and we wanted somewhere unusual to stay as heading out to The Adamson for dinner.. St Andrews is gorgeous and really great to walk around... Breakfast was lovely and the host was very chatty although did forget our morning cup of tea with breakfast... He only thing that spoilt this visit was hat in the other carriage we had a couple with a child who ran about shouting and also cried from just after 7am on Sunday morning which continued on until breakfast around 9.15... Not sure I would take he gamble again and stay here as it really did ruin a relaxing stay.. THe walls between the 2 suites are quite flimsy and unfortunately we did not get much sleep after that which was a shame given the great hosts and location

Great Weekend Away -
We stayed at the Old Station Guesthouse 12th &13th September in the Carriage Suite with the kitchen. Definitely a unique experience and our young daughter was very excited to be "living in the choo choo train"Quite tight for room with the travel cot up but we were aware it would be before our stay. It suited us better to have the kitchen to make the kids supper etc. Kitchen was fine and the cooker and appliances were all modern. Very friendly hosts and very gentle dogs Zack and Cody who our daughter loved. Lovely cooked breakfast in the morning and great selection of fruit, cereals and breads.Loved every minute of our stay and would definitely return!Many thanksRoss, Carly, Chloe &Connor

As a frequent traveller around the coasts of Scotland, it's a pleasure to stay at a new location and sample the hospitality and surroundings. I would highly recommend a stay at The Old Station. We were made very welcome and made to feel very comfortable by the owners, Gordon and Fiona. A superb guesthouse amidst beautiful and peaceful countryside surroundings, 5 minutes drive from St Andrews town centre. I will most definitely pay a return visit. A very highly recommended guesthouse.

stay in Africa room, 22-25 Sept -
We had an enjoyable and comfortable stay in the Africa Room (a free upgrade from our originally booked room). Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were excellent and the location, within proximity of all those wonderful golf courses and pretty fishing villages, was also excellent. All in all, a perfect stop for the 4th leg of our 30th-wedding anniversary tour of lowland Scotland. Thank you for being part of the adventure! Jackie &Nick.

Fantastic Guesthouse -
A beautiful guest house in a stunning location.My parents and I spent a lovely two night stay here from Sunday to Tuesday and couldn't have asked for better.The Old Station is in a lovely countryside location, situated in an ideal spot for exploring St Andrews (10 minute drive) and the small villages along the Fife coast.The bedrooms are spacious, comfortable and well equipped with everything you would need from a fridge to sweets with your coffee.The grounds and public areas are welcoming and peaceful too with so many types of different birds, which dad enjoyed pointing out as we watched them feed through the conservatory during our fantastic breakfast.When we arrived we were welcomed by the most wonderful host anyone could have wished for, kind, friendly and accommodating every need, even to the extent of serving coffee to the rest of our family (another 9 people) when they arrived for a day out on the Monday...thank you once again Fiona for your kind hospitality.We left feeling very relaxed and pleased with our stay, would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

Absolutely Wonderful -
We stayed in the carriage suite and we couldn't recommend it enough. The way the space was used was ingenious and the carriage was incredibly comfortable and furnished to a really high standard. We were on a driving tour of Scotland so we welcomed having a kitchen in the carriagewhich meant we could unwind in our suite rather than have to go out for dinner. Breakfast is provided in the main houses and was of excellent quality - it was also lovely to have fresh fruit available as well as a cooked breakfast.Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Cant really fault this lovely B&B. We stayed in the carrige which was nicely fitted out with everything you could ask for.

We had a very relaxing three day stay at the old station.The weather was dreadful but it was really nice to sit in the lounge in front of the log fire reading and drinking coffee. John andJanette were excellent stand in hosts. The only minor complaint, or grouse, was that breakfast being between 8 and 8-30 was a little early.We would definitely stay here again.

The railway carriage -
The carriage in itself was very nice as was the rest of the facilities, i.e. the guest lounge, hostess was very friendly but only having a half hour slot from 8.30 to 9am for breakfast in the morning, particularly a Sunday morning, was unacceptable as it meant we missed breakfast.The early morning check out of 10am could/should be extended to a more reasonable time.

The Old Station Is Fantastic -
