Ownership of Rufflets remains with the same family today, and they continue to put every effort into developing the hotel whilst retaining the original charm and ambience.
Set in 10 acres of award winning gardens on the outskirts of St Andrews, the hotel and grounds provide the idyllic backdrop for relaxing short breaks, inspirational meetings and unforgettable weddings.
