The room is even nicer than it looks in the pictures! There are comprehensive instructions for all appliances, and everything was clean, neat, and in order. The kitchen even has an induction cooktop!
It's a wonderful place to stay, within walking distance of everything, and Alison was helpful and always responded quickly to messages.
I couldn't ask for a better place to stay in St Andrews.
We had a lovely time in this flat. It is large, bright, warm and comfortably decorated with lots of nice extra touches and amenities (sewing kit, storage bags, toys for children etc...). I hope to stay here again when we return to St. Andrews.
wonderful, immediately felt at home and dispite some troubles in the beginning Allison was always very helpful. The flat is beautiful and you almost don't want to leave it to explore the beautiful town of St Andrews.
Arrival instructions worked like clockwork and email instructions from host were very clear. Flat was just as described - lovely and equipped to a very high standard and very clean, light and comfortable. All instructions in the guest folder were clear so we had Wifi, heating etc easily. Lovely location - perfect to be so close to South Street and the shops and a short walk to the cathedral and beach. Off-street parking was great - the building is very well managed for emptying bins and recycling. Altogether a great place and I would recommend without hesitation. Welcome wine a few essentials in the cupboard were a nice touch.
If you're looking for a clean, comfortable, roomy and well equipped apartment in St. Andrews, you don't need to look past the Boot Room. Our party consisted of 5 adults and it was a perfect place for our 5 night stay - outstanding location, warm and with little touches that made the place feel like 'home'! From the time I made the reservation, Alison was an absolute delight to deal with - questions were answered promptly and our communications made me feel very relaxed about the 'home stay' experience. The wi-fi and pay (cable) TV made the stay just that little bit more comfortable. The parking space is tight for a larger vehicle but that is a small price to pay for the other benefits this property presents! If I return to St. Andrews, I hope the Boot Room is available as this is simply a fantastic apartment!
The Boot Room was wonderful. It was much larger than we expected and the bedrooms, living areas and bathrooms were gorgeous, clean and comfortable. It is extremely central to St. Andrews, just one and a half blocks from South street, one of them any thoroughfares... and also just around the corner from the harbor. I don't think you could find a nicer place. Thank you Alison for letting us stay in your beautiful home.
We love the house! We had a wonderful time staying at the Boot Room, Alison Brown was so nice to deal with and very accommodating. The house was super clean, the rooms are spacious, and the kitchen is fully equipped. Everything is so accurated as described in AIRBNB. The neighborhood was so quiet, that we felt we were at our very own home in the US, yet away from home. The location of her property was perfect for us, and was only less than 10 min walk to St Andrews University's "Salvatore's Hall" where my daughter's graduation was held. I would definitely recommend the "Boot room", particularly, for family travel to St Andrews, Scotland.
Again, a huge thank you to Alison Brown.
Married with one child at home (a little girl called Ellie). I like the company of good friends, I also Rugby, Skiing and Cycling. Favourite holiday destination is France.
One of my favourite cities is Paris where I have been many times to watch Scotland play rugby. I like the Marais area the best.
As well as France, I love St Andrews and hope you will too.
