Good location within the town. However the room that we were allocated was extremely disappointing. Twin that should only have been a single very cramped so overpriced. Quite tired in decoration and furniture. No room for kettle so it was placed on the floor. Electrical pat testing 3 years out of date!!!!!! Breakfast average not in my opinion 4*. I... More

This B and B was very central. We were made very welcome. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast could have been better---rather basic. Service was a bit slow---scrambled eggs overcooked---rather mean on the allocation of toast---fruit was not the freshest---obviously cost-cutting on this meal.

Good location. Room was clean, spacious and had a lovely bathroom with shower. However, there was only one shower gel and one body lotion for two people and no shampoo or conditioner. The toiletries were not a well known brand. Towels were beautifully soft and nicely folded. When I inquired about exiting the building in event of a fire I... More

The bell Craig is a good place to rest your head for the night with a great central location. We were made very welcome after an extremely long day walking. Room was a bit small and dated, but did the job. Breakfast was nice and freshly cooked. This isn't a luxurious place to stay but for a central location it's... More

My husband and I visited St Andrews in order to see my son and grandson. After some confusion in trying to book at another B&B, we were helped in making arrangements to stay at the Bell Craig. We are so glad that we did! The place was neat as a pin, very comfortable, and very convenient to my son's lodging.... More

Let me start off by saying that Bell Craig is not exactly luxurious. It oozes charm though, and it is comfortable, the beds are fine (I'm 6'3"), and it is clean. The location cannot be beat. Steps to St. Andrews, Dunvegan's (and 20+ other pubs), Tesco, the ruins, the North Sea, etc. In other words, dead center of St. Andrews,... More

Bell Craig is located on a quiet street within easy walking distance of the St. Andrews golf courses, the University and pubs and restaurants. The rooms are small, but updated and nicely done. The breakfasts were made to order and excellent. Hazel, the proprietress, is a gem. She went way out of her way to accommodate our schedule. The only... More
