Could be described as a boutique b+b, this is an excellent stopover. A1 location, so close to the Old Course 18th, though you may not see this from the room itself! It is a small place, and as rooms are on the upper floors, you'll have to lug your clubs, bags etc upstairs. Rooms are spotless and beautifully decorated and... More

Great location, wonderful room, spotlessly clean, fantastic breakfast and difficult to find a better host than Sandra - good value as well! The room was also really well appointed and a surprisingly high attention to detail. Probably the best B&B I have stayed in and hope I have the opportunity to stay there again soon. Thanks Sandra!

The accommodation is clean, well appointed and Sandra the manager is brilliant. The food is very good and plentiful. A brilliant place to stay but please don't book when I want to go. We stayed there on a golfing visit and it is only 1 minutes walk from the 18 th green on the old course. It is near the... More

We have stayed in St. Andrews numerous times over the past 20 years in a guest house that was sold just prior to our trip at the beginning of October (and no longer run as a guest house). Needless to say, my husband and I were not looking forward to trying a new accommodation. However, when we saw the link... More

Having read all the reviews prior to my visit, my expectations were set rather high but 'The Fairways' still managed to exceed them... with ease! On my day of arrival I received a courtesy text message from Paul checking that everything was still on track for my arrival that evening. Upon arrival I was met by Yvonne who showed me... More

Just returned from another fantastic holiday at Fairways. Brilliant hosts who run a first class guest house,superbly aided by Angie the housekeeper who goes out of her way to make you feel at home. Spotless rooms with cosy atmosphere. So good we booked in already for 2016. Don't miss this place like an albatross on the course A RARE DELIGHT

What does one want when traveling? Location and service. That is what Fairways B&B is about. My wife and I were in St. Andrews for The Open golf tournament and Fairways is 75 yards from the 18th green at the Old Course. From the get go via email, owner Paul did everything properly to orient us and welcome us. We... More

Just a few steps away from the famous golf course or a 15-minute-walk from the Highland Games, we enjoyed a luxurious, calm and spacious room that occupied the entire floor under the roof, with a large bed, en-suite bathroom, delicious breakfast, and our own private roof terrace....mmmhhh....

stayed there all week for the OPEN championship. I was the perfect location. Breakfast was great. I got to stay in 2/3 rooms, one is reasonable tighter living quarters than the other with 2 people but both were fine considering the location. The noise from the Dunvigan was not that bad at all, although i did hear lots of traffic... More
