What people have said about the selected property...

We had a fantastic stay at this property for my cousins wedding in St. Andrews. The photos really don't do the space justice and the little touches such as the spirits collection, milk, butter and tonic water left in the fridge were a great help. All the rooms are a great size and had lovely en-suites. The only slight difficulty would be if you wished to cook for a large group because the kitchen is quite small but other than that fantastic.”

great visit

The apartment is located on the 3rd floor of a flat(the only draw back ) which makes it best for adults who can climb the stairs. Once in, it is a lovely apartment. Worked well for 4 couples here to visit and play some golf. The kitchen, though small, was very efficient. Nice dining/living room for gathering. Very convenient to St. Andrews course, shopping and dining in town. Lisa was great and accommodating our earlier arrival. Would highly recommend.

Absolutely beautiful!

Easy access to everything, golf course, town, bus station all within walking distance. The home was very comfortable. Big rooms with comfortable beds
I would caution the elderly. There are over 50 steps up to the actual flat. Was very difficult for two of our party who had difficulty with walking to begin with. Once inside it was very spacious and has a built-in plumbed coffee machine of which I want one!. Well designed kitchen.

This gorgeous apartment in the heart of St. Andrews was just perfect for our family.

We stayed at Howard Place for my niece's graduation for a week. My 85 year old mom, husband, sisters and daughter loved the luxurious accommodations which included a state of the art small kitchen. St. Andrews is centrally located for multiple day trips to a vast array of nearby attractions in Scotland. St. Andrews itself is a wonderful playground for young and old. Thanks so much to Carolyn and Lisa for your immediate replies to all questions and requests. We highly recommend this property without reservation.


“We really enjoyed staying here. The flat is in just the right spot, a walk to the beach, the golf and the town. Rooms are large and well presented without being so delicate that you can't relax, lots of light and nice high ceilings. Comfortable beds, good showers and lots of space for everyone to be together. A really good place to stay..”

12 Howard is simply an outstanding place to stay when visiting St.Andrews. Spent a week there recently with 2 other couples and we fell in love with this apartment/ townhouse. There is nothing that you don't have. 2 kitchens, great bedrooms , beautiful baths, and a backyard area that is so peaceful and tranquil. The location is outstanding and St. Andrews is such an outstanding place. Yes we golfed; yet the town, the historical background, the University all contribute to a very unique and special atmosphere.
Thank you June and Colin for the great accommodations. We look to return here on our next visit.

On a golf trip , 4 couples stayed at this apartment. The manager was great and very welcoming. The kitchen is small but worked for having our breakfasts at the flat. The pantry was stocked with essentials and even some gin and scotch. It took some trying to figure out the coffee maker but once we did it made great coffee. The washer and dryer on the second floor came in very handy. We had space to relax and unwind after a day of golf. We could walk to restaurants for dinner or go out for an evening gelato. Would highly recommend staying here.
