Beautiful place. We enjoyed a lovely evening in the bar chatting with fellow guests and received excellent service from Andrew, our entertaining and knowledgeable waiter. The room was very well appointed, loved all the little details.

We enjoyed our stay very much so in the Rufflets Hotel. Me and my husband had memories we will not forget. It was old fashioned but that is what we liked about it. It was also close to the centre of St Andrews.
