          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Room very clean and comfortable. Beautiful and well kept gardens. Staff, although young, were attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Rufflets is a very friendly, comfortable country house hotel. Lots of character and original features, but with modern facilities too. Friendly and helpful staff. Superb grounds and only 2 minutes drive from St Andrews town, but feels as if it could be in the middle of the countryside. We stayed in the family room, which was well appointed and worked very well for us and the children - a very useful asset to have.

            My only, fairly minor, comment, is that the portions at breakfast were a little inconsistent - eggs benedict ordered on one day came with 2 eggs, whereas the next day only one was provided. Slightly put us off ordereing certain items (needless to say, teh lucky recipient of 2 eggs was regarded with jealousy by the others!). I don't thikn expecting 2 eggs for this dish is unreasonable, so it was a little confusing.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The staff were friendly, efficient and thoughtful. Food was well presented. Lounges and rooms were comfortable. Location convenient for golf at St Andrews and other courses.

            I couldn't fault the hotel.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The setting in the mature gardens with the brook running through the gardens was very peaceful. The public rooms and bedrooms were very tastefully decorated. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the warm fluffy towels were a delight

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Fantastic staff. Excellent food. VERY comfortable public areas. Beautiful gardens

            Just a little far out of St Andrews if you did not drive.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            We enjoyed being in the country and the feeling of spaciousness. The friendliness of the staff, the beauty of the garden, the attractive decor, especially the dining-room with the fresh flower arrangements and wonderful buffet and excellent service.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Everything! The staff service was second to none, the building was beautiful and the gardens breathtaking.

            comfortable if lacking in "life"

            a bit out of St Andrews

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            we liked the comfortable rooms, good food and ambience

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Stunning country house hotel. Lovely size, great decor and beautiful grounds. Friendly efficient staff and good restaurant.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Service standards are second to none and the milk service in the morning is excellent! Wonderful breakfast and beautiful hotel and grounds.

            We arent convinced the price of the suite represented very good value for money as the room was a smidge on the tired side albeit very clean and well appointed.

          • Group of friends
            9.0

            The service and food was certainly something to write about and we certainly would look forward to returning there. The friendliness of the staff was a joy to experience from the porter up. Their homemade shortbread was delicious.

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Lovely setting, spacious rooms, nice grounds, friendly staff. We had a very enjoyable stay for daughter's graduation.

            Breakfast was a bit disappointing

          • Family with children
            7.8

            The staff was excellent, friendly and very accommodating. The setting was quaint and then gardens lovely.

            The bed was not comfortable and the bed linens were "blankety" rather than "comforty".
