Rufflets Hotel St. Andrews

Rufflets has without doubt become one of the hidden jewels of country house hotels in Scotland.

Owned and loved by the same family since 1952, the building is filled with an innate sense of tranquillity - it has often been said that the walls have souls of their own.

The 23 individually designed bedrooms provide all the prerequisites that are always present in a 4 red star hotel, but also exude a sense of homely comfort, and with a touch of luxury. Many of the rooms have views over the award-winning gardens and to the open farmland beyond.

Delectable cuisine plays a great part in the success of any great hotel, and the new Seasons Restaurant presents a seasonally changing a la carte dinner menu created by Chef David Kinnes and his brigade. The menu showcases the very best produce that Fife and Scotland has to offer, enhanced by herbs, vegetables and fruit grown in their own gardens.

The Bar offers a wide selection of some of the finest malt whisky andlocal gins, and the cellar carries a carefully selected choice of fine wines from around the globe.

Rufflets is more than simply one of the most wonderful hotels in Scotland - it has become for many guests a home-from-home, providing a feeling of belonging for all who visit.
