I visited St Andrews alone for work and stayed in the least expensive room at the Yorkston (a single bed without en suite). The location is very convenient, and Catrina and Fiona were incredibly friendly without being the least bit obtrusive. I will happily stay at the Yorkston the next time I visit.

We spent 5 nights in the Yorkston House and it was a great stay. The accommodations were very comfortable, the service was great and they offer an outstanding breakfast that caters to dietary restrictions

We traveled to St. Andrews specifically for golf (my husband and 2 sons). I tagged along as the photographer mostly. We stayed at this B&B and it met all of our expectations. We had 2 rooms and we had everything we needed and more. The breakfast was marvelous. All 4 of us were totally happy. It is within walking distance... More

It is true!!! If Guest Houses are to be rated like Hotels, Yorkston should be classified as Five-Star. Very clean, excellent breakfast, nice room, good service. Exactly what we need to have a good stay. The management pays really good attention to all the details in the room and other facilities. We appreciated that the Guest House also accommodated our...

I have never left a review of places I've stayed before but my recent to trip to St Andrews and the Yorkston Guest House in particular have left a lasting impression. Not only is the town one of a kind but the Yorkston is a real gem. The breakfast is varied and home cooked, the rooms clean and well equipped... More

I would strongly recommend the Yorkston Guest House! Catrina was very nice and welcoming but still lets her guests have their space. The location of the house is a little bit "outside of town" but I use that term loosely -- a 7 minute walk gets you to the middle of town. The house is very clean and offers many... More

Only a short walk away from the centre, it is a pretty good base. Room was very small and, I thought, overpriced for a single bed with bathroom down the hall. However, St Andrews accommodation isn't cheap and the room was quiet, clean, warm and comfortable. You'd be lucky to find a parking spot outside so there is a 100... More

I found the guest house relaxing, homely, friendly and comfortable. It was also fairly inexpensive. What's more I was upgraded to en-suite bathroom without extra charge. It's very handy for the centre of town without actually being in the centre of town.
