“Sweet Spot in St Andrews”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We really enjoyed our time at The Snug. Despite its name, this place is not too snug, much bigger than most B & B and hotel rooms. It has one fairly spacious sitting room/bedroom area and a lovely little kitchen with everything we needed for fixing breakfasts. The kitchen has a very comfy window seat. My husband liked the short walk to the town golf courses. I liked being so close to shops and restaurants. I had worried a bit about noise, The Snug being right over a main road and right across from McIntosh Hall. We stayed in the middle of the week. Things might be different on week-ends, but we heard not a peep from the students. Traffic on the road seemed to slow down quite a bit after dark, so no problems from that front either. Another helpful thing about the location is that it's just a couple blocks from the bus station. Be aware that soap and shampoo are not typically provided for the shower. We had brought shampoo along, but not soap. Soon after we called to inquire about this, we found that the manager had dropped by to slip some soap through the mail slot...very thoughtful as it saved us a trip to Boots. Also, a problem with the wifi was resolved within an hour, and then it worked brilliantly.

“What a find!”
Reviewed 23 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is the perfect place for 2 people. It is within walking distance to the center of town and the golf courses at St. Andrews. There are lots of windows so the place is light and airy. The only drawback is having to climb 2 flights of stairs but it is worth it. We would definitely rent this the next time we are in St. Andrews. It is well furnished including a washer which was a major plus.

“Wish we had found this first time in St Andrews”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have been visiting our daughter for the last four years in St Andrews and have stayed in many different accommodations. This was the best by far, very well located, nicely appointed and spacious with well equipped kitchen. Minor drawback is climbing up two floors with luggage but small price to pay for what's waiting for you. Lovely views and as mentioned very roomy. This is definitely somewhere where we would happily stay for a week.

“Absolutely Wonderful!!!”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

The Snug is centrally located to everything in St. Andrews! My husband got up at 2 AM to get in the queue to play the Old Course as a single and the 18th hole is literally less than a 5 minute walk as is the Town Centre with shops, grocery store, restaurants etc. (He got on and even played the next day on the New Course) I collected sea glass and visited historic St. Andrews University also within 5 minutes or just relaxed in the apartment sun window enjoying the views. After 10 hectic days in Ireland, The Snug was a dream with all the comforts of home especially with the bottle of wine, bread, butter, milk and shortbreads left by Elizabeth the property manager. When I couldn't figure out how to turn on the wall radiators she immediately responded via email. People whom we spoke with were disappointed with their overpriced hotels and envious of our wonderful accommodations. One word of warning-If stairs are difficult for you this place may not work as there are 2 flights of wrapping stairs to the apartment. Great exercise after a wonderful meal in town!!

“Lovely comfortable apartment in central location”
Reviewed 29 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Flat located on 2nd floor of attractive building in crescent located just off the main centre of town. Very comfortable and clean and decorated and furnished to high spec as indicated by photos. We particularly liked the view from the comfy window seat over the gardens. Beds were very comfortable and the sofa bed was fine for our teenage daughter. We were able to park outside the flat and left the car there as it is so close to walk to the centre of town and all amenities. The flat overlooks the main road at the top of town which leads to the bus station so convenient if you arrive by bus, although you can also hear the traffic but it wasn't an issue for us. We would highly recommend staying at The Snug when in St. Andrews.
