“Taking Daughter to St Andrews”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We just returned home last night after a 7 night stay and are so pleased with our St Andrews experience. The flat is comfortable and in a great location. We found it so convenient to walk into town from the flat and a car was not needed. We were able to relax as a family as we prepared to move our daughter into her dorm for her freshman year at St Andrews. The flat is adequately equipped and clean. The beds are comfortable, the space bright and relaxing. The lack of wifi took some adjustment, but a quick walk into town solved that issue. We felt as though we stepped back in time a bit and it was actually a nice opportunity to unwind and bond as a family before we returned to the states. Jean was very helpful and accommodating. We would stay here again!

If you are looking for homey comfort with lots of space and light with a lovely courtryard thrown in Abbey Villa is the place for you.
We liked it so mich we extended our stay. Jean and family are wonderful people to deal with,so do not hesitate to call if there is a problem.
We had a car but for those who do not have a car the bus stop is right out side the driveway.
I would recommend this lovely old place for couples, families or golfers.

“Great location, helpful owners, lovely time spent in St Andrews”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We rented Abbey Villa during the month of July as a convenient place to travel to and from St Andrews for The Open and various other events on the course. It's a peaceful yet convenient location and Jean, the point of contact at the accommodation, was so helpful and helped with any queries we had almost immediately. It was great to have our own space for the amount of time we spent in St Andrews, the house had everything we needed and it was above all, comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone wishing to stay in St Andrews :)

“Enjoyed stay”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Good to stay for golfing in St Andrews.
The location is convenient for eating, shopping and of course golfing.
A few things may be able to improved are
- Washing machine didn't work
- No parking space marked for flat 1 but could park in a space so no problem
- It would be nice if there was the instruction for waste disposal, how to separate general and recycle...especially for the people came from abroad like us.
There were actually minor things and overall, we did enjoyed staying in lovely apartment.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay.
We checked the washing machine and it is working, but we will leave instructions on how to use it for future guests.
There is plenty of private parking at the flat which is a real bonus, but will make sure that the space for Flat 1 is clearly marked.
That is a great point about re-cycling! We will make sure that details are left in the flat.
We look forward to welcoming you back!

“Hidden costs”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014
3
people found this review helpful

Be careful what you sign up for. The costs seemed reasonable at first however ultimately we were charged for electricity (the first place I've stayed at that charged for energy) and the owner deducted £25 for cleaning after we left. Given that we ate dinner at the golf courses and only slept there and left early every day, the idea of charging for cleaning is a joke. There are plenty of nicer appartments nearby that are cheaper when factoring in these hidden costs.

avoid at all (hidden) costs!!!

We thank you for staying at Abbey Villa and would like to respond to your review.

In answer to your "(hidden) costs" comment:
We are sorry that you must have overlooked that our advert on the holiday lettings site clearly states in the "Prices" section, "Gas and electricity are payable extra, based on your usage, and will be payable on your departure." We have since added this to the general description to highlight this further.

We understand that you say you only were in the flat a short time outside of dining and playing golf, however, the flat was unfortunately left in a state beyond an acceptable level with wet towels on the beds, rubbish all over the floors, a broken and discarded golf bag, food exposed on the kitchen surfaces, dirty dishes everywhere - to give some examples. Our cleaner required more time to clean the flat as a result and therefore we had no choice but to pass part of this extra cost on to you. We trust you understand that this is fair under the circumstances.

This is the first time that our cleaner has ever taken longer than the usual time to clean the apartment and was shocked at the state it was left after your stay.

We sincerely hope that you enjoyed your stay in Abbey Villa and St.Andrews.
