Rufflets: A Must-Stay in St Andrews
St Andrews is a home away from home for me. Having lived there for five years, four of them while at university, I know pretty much every inch of the town. I was really excited to visit again, even if it was just for one night. There are lots of hotels and B&B's within the town itself, but I knew from reputation. and what other people had told me, that Rufflets was in a world of its own. The family owned hotel is located just outside of the town itself, nestled in the charming Scottish countryside. It was honestly like staying in a private oasis. From the moment we stepped into the hotel we were greeted with smiles, and having checked-in, we were personally shown to our room and given some information about the room itself. We stayed in one of the two turret rooms, which has a seating area overlooking the gardens. Rufflets has so many awards for both the hotel and restaurant, that it would probably take another post to explain them all to you.
If you're looking for somewhere to eat, you don't need to venture into town. Season Restaurant holds two AA Rosettes, and they produce fresh products right from their garden. The breakfast is also to die for. There are lots of options and they are more than accommodating if you have any dietary requirements. When we arrived the dining area was bursting with people enjoying their afternoon tea as well. If you fancy a drink, the bar awaits and you can sit anywhere you like within, or outwith, the hotel. Rufflets is a hub of activity throughout the day, which shows just how much the hotel has to offer, and how happy people are to retreat to it. So, if you're visiting St Andrews for its golf appeal, or just exploring everything else the town has to offer, treat yourself to one of Scotland's best hotels. Check out some of my photos below!
