James and Margaret are wonderful hosts. the b&b is extremely comfortable and clean. the food was excellent and cooked to order. they have a wealth of knowledge of the area and were spot on with local recommendations and setting up our golf tee times. we were treated as family and can't wait to return. I highly recommend this b&b.

The room was nice and spacious enough with an en-suite bathroom. The location of the B & B is just about 10 minutes walking distance of the town centre. The hospitality of James & Margaret is fabulous, they will do anything to make you feel at home! They serve a great breakfast. Only disturbing thing was the outside noise at... More

We enjoyed the hospitality of James and Margaret for 5 nights earlier this week. They are charming hosts and run a spotlessly clean and tidy b & b where we were very comfortable and relaxed. Breakfasts are to a good standard and are prepared to order for each guest. Access to the upstairs bedrooms is up quite steep stairs, so... More

Best stay of 10 days in Scotland. Beds, bath, and breakfasts superb. Margaret & James shared expertise and opinions in lively conversations. Interesting fellow guests at breakfast. Convenient to downtown, bus station, golf. Highly recommended by seasoned travelers who would have like to stay longer with the Yules. A CLASSY above trendy or quaint hotel.

Margaret and James are simply wonderful in their welcome, their friendliness and even their breakfast cooking:-). The room n° 1 was spacious, the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was perfect. James can arrange some tee time on most courses in Saint Andrews. Really value for money. Close to the City Center to visit all major attractions. They can... More
