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

This B&B is like staying at your own home, very friendly and kind host, everything is clean and tidy, Scottish breakfast is awesome, no problems with wifi signal. I totally recommend this B&B, ignore the bad reviews.

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!

Bill and Ann are the perfect b and b hosts. After an exhausting but uplifting hike to St Andrews it was the little touches that made our stay . Comfortable bed, lovely breakfast and nice friendly atmosphere . Thankyou Ann and Bill .From John And Mary

Our stay at St. Nicholas Farmhouse was great. Evelyn was a gracious hostess who did everything she could to make our stay a good one, going so far as to help rescue my husband's contact out of the drain in the bathroom sink. :) The B&B is clean, convenient to town and the beach, comfortable, with a delicious Scottish breakfast....
