  • Rosie McKee
    Balfour House was the perfect choice for our family’s summer stay in St.Andrews. The house has an enormous amount of comfort and charm in it's original period features combined with it’s modern renovations. It’s location is perfect to enjoy a paddle on the shores of the East Sands or a jaunt along the coastal path whilst still being within putting distance to the Old Town itself. A holiday home with a big heart that loves you as much as you love it! Perhaps we may be lucky enough to return to Balfour House in autumn or winter time and enjoy the wood burning fire after windswept walks along the beach. A luxury holiday home for all seasons �� It is worth mentioning that we met the property manager on our arrival, she was very friendly and made us very welcome and was easily contactable, the check-in and departure was very flexible and there were a few welcome provisions to enjoy on our arrival - a nice personal touch.

    I have been meaning to get in touch to say how much we enjoyed our week at Balfour House - the flat is absolutely fantastic, and was a great base for a week of fun in St Andrews and surrounding area. Please do pass on our thanks to the owners - the work they have obviously done to get it to such a standard is much appreciated. And we hope to return in future years.
  • Graeme
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Balfour House. Very nice property with everything we needed and in a good spot for the beach and an easy stroll into the town centre. We all found it easy to relax in the very comfortable environment. I would have no hesitation in recommending the flat for visitors to St Andrews
