We visited St. Nicholas Farmhouse in late October. It was a wonderful stay. Hosts who were warm and welcoming. The rooms were of a good standard and the little things - like the provision of a small refrigerator were facilities some larger hotels can learn from. Breakfast was freshly cooked to a high standard. I will certainly stay there again... More

Me and my wife came back to St Andrews for our anniversary and ended up staying at this place. It is a cozy nice place out of town but not too far. The walk here is pretty, staff nice, room clean and big, breakfast more than enough... what more would we want for such an OK price?

We had a nice short break at the farmhouse and were made very welcome on both occasions. The b and b is very homely. Ann and Bill are lovely hosts and the cooked Scottish breakfast amazing. Well worth a visit.

We stayed for one night in July at St. Nichoals Farmhouse and everything was good. The room was big and clean, with free WiFi and a good buffet Scottish Breakfast. The B&B is very close to the beach and St. andrews city center. The price is also very competitive.

Had a very pleasant stay at St Nicholas Farmhouse. Most if not all of the complaints made in previous one and two star reviews appear to have been dealt with (sadly the cats are no longer with us). Book with confidence for a great value stay in pricey St Andrews.

We found this B & B whilst searching on line, and must say how pleased we were. The location is virtually on the beach, nicely situated with a 15 min walked along the front into town centre. There are lots of things to see and visit on the way!. The room was a nice size, clean & tidy, the bed... More

Musty smell..Dirty feeling ...they are planning to change the carpets.. I would wait till then. No locks on your door! Really? We had to trust the folks when we left.. The breakfast was fine.. The beds are uncomfortable.. We were all very disappointed. But I could not wait to get out!
