“A historic property set within ten acres of pretty gardens in St Andrews. Individually styled light and contemporary rooms and an award winning restaurant, using only local seasonal produce much of which comes from the garden. Stunning property for events or simply a country escape.”

Hotel Review

In recent years this country house hotel has embraced modern standards of service, food and interiors and shaken off the stuffy atmosphere it was once known for. The luxuriously furnished bedrooms are immensely comfortable with those overlooking the topiaried gardens offering the best views. In the evening, golfers recount their scores from the day as other guests relax in the lounge sipping an aperitif while perusing Chef Marx Nixon’s well-regarded menu. Young families will struggle at Rufflets as there is very little to do; but for everyone else that’s the beauty of the place.

Rufflets Hotel, St Andrews

"A calm, unrushed country house hotel that has been thoughtfully extended over the years so that the integrity of the original 1924 home has been retained."
