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!

Enjoyed our three night break in St. Andrews staying at this wonderful guest house. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. Was very impressed with how clean and welcoming everything was. Elaine and Derek are keen to ensure that your stay is very pleasurable. Could not fault anything and will certainly want to stay there again on our future visits... More

Having stayed at the Kinburn Guest House last year i had no hesitation in looking to book there again for this years golf trip. Elaine and Derek are superb hosts and nothing is too much trouble. As and when i return to St Andrews i will be sure to try and stay there again, it's unlikely you'll find a better... More

I planned a golf trip to St Andrews during the early part of February and was looking for a place that was not only affordable, but also located close to most of the main golf attractions, restaurants and shops. From the 11 establishments i contacted, Kinburn Guest House was the first to respond and this was where I had the... More

Just perfect for 8 golfers! Elaine & Derek are very welcoming, the whole place is spotless and the breakfast is great - what more could you want? It is also very conveniently placed for all the pubs and restaurants in St Andrews

I stayed at here with my daughter as were attending the open day at the University, and I was very impressed by our friendly hosts and the accommodation. Our twin room was delightful, with fresh, crisp linen for the beds and soft, fluffy towels and face cloths in our immaculate en suite. There was plentiful selection of high quality toiletries...

This is a lovely, friendly B&B located within easy walking distance to the centre of town, close to great bars and restaurants yet easy to park nearby. The room was very clean, quiet and comfortable and the breakfasts were great. The owners are very friendly and helpful which added to a great stay here.

First let me say that Elaine and Derek were incredibly welcoming. We arrived on Christmas day and they made sure they were home to greet us. Christmas is a time for family and here we were driving in from Edinburgh disrupting that special time. I felt kind of bad about the whole thing, but Elaine emailed us ahead of time... More

this place was a perfect location to be able to walk anywhere in town... but the best part was that Elaine met me each morning before I left and gave advice that made each day that much more enjoyable! we hope to return one day.
