This is our third visit to the Kinburn Guest House for a golf break, Derek and Elaine are wonderful hosts, nothing is ever too much trouble. Breakfasts are always top notch and just what you need when playing 36 holes of golf!!! When we visit again next year I will be sure to book up again with them.

Stayed for 2 nights in this very comfortable B & B. Met by Derek on arrival, we were shown to our room which had a lovely big bed & ensured a very good sleep. Met Elaine later in the evening and both hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The room was immaculately clean and I liked the local artwork. Bathroom... More

Great location and very hospitable hosts! Rooms clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was very nice. Hosts very friendly and helpful with information about local area. This guest house was nicely decorated, comfortable and quiet. I would most definitely return and recommend Kinburn Guest House to my friends.

this is a terrific find. It is charming and clean and full of really nice touches. It is a 5 minute walk from the center of St. Andrews and 10 minutes from the Old Course. The hosts are extremely accommodating but not clingy. They have 3 lovely dogs who are not seen and not heard unless you beg for a... More

This is a lovely guest house - the owners couldn't have been more accommodating. Room was well appointed, clean and comfortable (lovely linen on the bed). Special attention had been given to sourcing local foodstuffs for the cooked breakfast, homemade jams, scottish soaps and shower gels. We walked everywhere easily from the B&B, town was 5 mins max on foot.... More

Just what we were looking for. A nice and relaxed place . We got a nice room with at big big bed , so difficult to rise from that - it was wonderful. Even though we are not golfers ;-) we can highly recommend Elaine and her hospitality and her way to meet people in general. The breakfast was perfect... More

Very nice B&B. Good location, close to golf and central avenue. The house and rooms are very nice, clean and well-appointed. Elaine and Derek were very welcoming hosts. Elaine's breakfasts were amazing, especially the homemade jams! Her assistance with ballots at St. Andrews was also much appreciated - their service was truly above and beyond. Would highly recommend again!
