Great value for money Service good and very friendly. Excellent breakfast. Rooms are a good size and very clean. We also had a lunch which was well cooked and again reasonably priced. I would recommend this hotel as its central but you can get everything without leaving the hotel.

This is our 3rd visit to the Greyfriars hotel and very time has been excellent. The Hotel is centrally located in St Andrews and there is a car park adjacent to the hotel although it does get full at times. Usually you can always park the car after 6pm and then leave it there! The rooms are large and clean...

Another return visit to Greyfriars didn't disappoint us. As always the Fish and Chips were first class and plentiful. If your really, really hungry try the large portion. The restaurant was very busy and noisy but service quick and waitress pleasant and helpful.

Must have been a busy weekend as we're sold out of many salmon dishes and Cullen skink. Service was great but the coffee, Americana was the absolute worst I think I have ever had. Really need to upgrade the coffee quality selection instead of the stuff your grandmother buys at the discount supermarket!

Friendly and comfortable pub/restaurant. Great location for shops and golf alike. We visit St Andrews often and always eat and drink at the Greyfriars. Would certainly recommend it. Have stayed in it too and again very comfortable. Room was very spacious and clean.

We had a very friendly welcome and introduction into the layout of the city. The room was of a good size, well-equipped, clean and comfortable; the bathroom did let it down a bit - the grouting needed cleaning with a toothbrush and the ceiling was flaking badly. We ate at the hotel on the first evening - the staff were...

Stayed for a few nights and thought the hotel was great! Staff were friendly and helpful. Only ate breakfast here but it offered a good selection. Room 213 is very nice! Take ear plugs as St Andrews can be noisy!

We visited on a busy Sunday evening (freshers' week) for dinner and we were warmly welcomed and shown to our table. Food was very good "pub grub" and service was prompt and attentive.We were entirely satisfied all round and the biggest endorsement I can give is to say we will return!
