Reviews - The Old Station B & B

Just what we needed. - Rating 5/5

There were 4 of us having a couple of nights away. Our belated Christmas presents to each other and we did well choosing The Old Station B&B. It was perfect. Very welcoming hosts and made us feel right at home, which is what they aim to do. We had a lovely decorated double room. Comfortable bed and pillows. Spotlessly clean and tidy. Good size en suite with a large shower. Very clean and nice towels and toiletries. We had a good breakfast, helping ourselves to the buffet of fresh fruit, yogurts and cereals. Cooked breakfast to follow, which was very well cooked. Local bacon and eggs and all was very tasty, plenty of toast, tea and coffee. Set us up for the day.Very comfortable lounge area and a little games room with a pool table, which was made use of. Also the glasses in the display cabinet for the drinks we brought with us.All in all a very nice couple of nights away and we would definitely like to go back again for another couple of nights away. It would be lovely to use the train carriage, maybe the next time.Thank you for having us.

Lancashire meets Scotland - Rating 4/5

We received a warm welcome from our hosts, who kindly provided us with fresh milk for our tea.The room was cozy, with a very comfortable bed. The shower unit was a wee bit small, but adequate. The breakfast provided us with a good start to the day, but the dining area was a bit on the cool side.We experienced a little bit of car trouble during our break, but the hosts were very helpful in pointing us in the right direction to get it sorted.The Old Station House is set in very well kept grounds,the location was perfect, and the sun shone too.

A great first visit - Rating 5/5

I needed a base to explore Fife. Searching on line I was intrigued by the railway carriages. I stayed in a lovely double room in the old station house which was very comfortable and immaculately clean. After a busy day exploring I was able to relax in the visitor's lounge. The Scottish breakfast was delicious and cooked to order, piping hot and fresh. I would definitely book again.

Lovely Stay - Great Breakfast - Rating 5/5

Bought as a gift. The feedback was that:on approach on a rainy day (in the spirit of being honest and balanced) the carraige didn't look appealing on first glance and they were a bit worried this was their accomodation. Once in and settled, they found the inside of the carrraige to be nice, clean, great amenities (the kitchenette with plenty coffee etc). They found the grounds and main building to be lovely. They enjoyed the lounge and pool table. They thought the breakfast was brilliant (which is why we booked this, as many hotels just offer continental) and service was great. They had a relaxed and fun stay and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Fab welcome and great surroundings but one downside... - Rating 4/5

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 place to stay- Rating 5/5

Colin was an awesome host. He was friendly with everyone. The breakfast was great with him taking orders for how you wanted eggs cooked and what meats you wanted. The room was clean comfortable and very nice. The area was lovely in the country but do close to St. Andrews.

Fantastic Guesthouse - Rating 5/5

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 - Rating 5/5

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!

Wedding Stay - Rating 4/5

We chose to stay in the Scottish Room at the Old Station. We were given a warm welcome by Fiona and the room was both comfortable and attractive. There was a good choice at breakfast and Colin was helpful in advice about taxis and where to go in St Andrews. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily stay there again.

Lovely - Rating 4/5

Cant really fault this lovely B&B. We stayed in the carrige which was nicely fitted out with everything you could ask for. The only thing I could really say was it was not warm, the bedroom was cosy but the small sitting room was chilli but it is February! Overall it was lovely and we were made to feel very welcome. I would definately recommend this B&B.

old station - Rating 5/5

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 - Rating 4/5

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 - Rating 5/5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.Colin and Fiona were wonderful hosts and went out of their way to help us with tee times, etc..A nice break in the countryside if you've been staying in 'big' cities like Edinburgh during a trip through Scotland.Can't recommend highly enough.
