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

Everything was perfect! Attention to detail was spot on. We stayed in the railway carriage which was quirky and very enjoyable, even the keyring was a like a rail ticket, its the little things lol! Breakfast was delicious and the welcome given to us and our wee dog couldn't have been better. Thank you for having us and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Great Spot!
We were made to feel very welcome from the instant that we walked in the door. We were given advice about what to see and do, and equally important, what not to bother seeing. Excellent breakfast, as well. Very nice, down-to-earth, place and proprietors. Would definitely stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the suit of the beautifully converted railway carriage, it was really comfortable, stylish and truly welcoming. Our Hosts were both extremely friendly & helpful and we do hope to return again sometime soon. Very easy to be based while looking around the wonderful coastal villages as well as St. Andrews itself so we take great pleasure in giving our experience there full marks!

Great experience. Sleeping in the old train is extraordinary. The host is very nice, very gentle and was even able to book a table for us on a late Friday night in a great restaurant. If you plan to go to St-Andrews or in the neighborhood, you should definitely stay in the Old Station B&B.

We recently stayed in the railway coach. What an experience! Luxury in such a small space but made spacious by using sympathetic items. Beautifully furnished. Just brilliant.

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 thanks

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.

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 carriage which 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!

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.
