8B Hope St

  • 5 of 5

Nikki and Ian's place is fantastic! I was there with my parents for a six day golf trip to St. Andrews. The Hope St. location is absolutely perfect. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the Old Course 18th green as well as pubs, restaurants, and shops on Market, South, and North St. The place is very spacious and has amenities that you need for a stay (paper towels, dish soaps, laundry detergent, cooking utensils, etc). I would highly recommend staying here! Thank you for everything.

Perfect location for The Old Course and St. Andrews

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with two adult children in their 20's. This basement apartment has been updated and is modern, clean and convenient. It is in a nice quiet neighborhood, less than 5 minutes from the first tee of The Old Course. There are also plenty of pubs, restaurants and shops within a short walk, also less than 5 minutes. There is plenty of room for golf club storage. Street parking was available and worked well for us.

Love this flat!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented quite a few vacation rentals all over Europe and the US and this has been the best so far! We booked this flat for a visit to our daughter who is studying at St. Andrews University. The location is perfect; a 1 minute walk to town or to the Old Course (we are golfers too!). When we arrived we were welcomed with a basket of goodies including bread and coffee which made it very nice for the next morning as we arrived quite late at night. The flat was spacious, clean, and fully equipped. There were even tablets for the dishwasher. A very nice touch. We will definitely stay here again! Highly recommended!!!!

GREAT flat for the family in heart of St. Andrews

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to call home while you are in St. Andrews. Newly renovated, well furnished and kept very clean. The gift basket in the kitchen supplied us with tea and coffee to refresh us after a long trip from the U.S. The location (two streets from the bus station) allowed easy walking access to Tesco for groceries, pubs , restaurants, shops and all of the local sites; including the histroric golf courses and British Golf Museum!

Nikki and Ian left great notes on using the utilities, including WIFI.

Perfect apartment,ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment really is equiped with everything you could need and more.

We stayed here whilst our son played in a golf tournament at the old course(2 minutes away on foot) and couldnt have wished for more.It is situated only 2 minutes away from the beach,shops restrauants etc.

The apartment has 3 really good sized bedrooms,with adequate storage.Both the family bathroom and ensuite are done to a high specification as is the fully equiped kitchen.We had some really tiring days following the golf but the apartment really felt like home from home when we returned each day.The living room allowed all six of us to sit and relax comfortably.

Ian and Nicky were extremley helpful when we were booking,and the welcome basket we received on arrival was a lovely touch.

If we are lucky enough to return to St Andrews for next years competition,then we will definately be booking well in advance,because as the word spreads about 8b Hope Street it will be difficult to get availability

Great location, Great style, Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great long weekend in this fantastic apartment situated in a row of grand stone houses (a few doors up from where Prince William lived when he studied in St.Andrews!). It is very well situated, a 5 minute walk to the old course and beach, 2 minutes to Tesco's supermarket and a number of shops, restaurants, café's and pubs also within a few short minutes walk. It has a lovely mix of the old stone house and a clean contemporary interior and a homely feel. The bedrooms are a good size with comfy beds and fluffy pillows and quilts. The kitchen/dining room is well finished and equipped with everything we needed. The outside patio area is lovely but as it was cold when we were there, so we didn't get to use it. Very clean and well looked after, a real home from home. We will definitely go back and it worth all 5 stars in my opinion! R&J, Lisburn, N. Ireland
