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!

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...
