I was part of a group of 12 golfers, 6 of us were lucky to stay at Fairways. The guesthouse is quite unique as it is small so it feels like a private home but then you have Angie who comes in to cook and look after us. We were luckier than the other guys as we could choose what... More

This is a true gem. We had the upper floor and the balcony overlooked the courses. The 18th green of the Old Course is just around the corner. Paul and Yvonne take great care of their guests and Angie is a wonderful cook and a great person to get to know. What a treat this place is - modern, great... More

As many others have already said Fairways is more like a boutique hotel than a B&B. Had the top floor room which was fantastic with the balcony. We arrived in St Andrews an hour before we were due to pick up the keys but a quick call and Yvonne arrived 5 mins later and welcomed us in. Great service, nothing... More

I can only reiterate what others have previously said - very comfortable, clean well-equipped B&B. Five of us stayed there last week-end; we booked all three rooms. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony (in the top floor room) enjoying the view and the sunshine. Fairways is in a great location, everything is in easy walking distance. Breakfast was delicious, plenty... More

Very well located B and B. Only 3 rooms in total, all spotless and very comfortable, immaculate bathrooms although very small sinks for washing, no bath only shower but plenty of hot water. I did find the top most room quite cold during the night but there is a hot water bottle in the wardrobe which was useful, my fault... More

Stayed here for the weekend and couldn't fault it. Yvonne, Paul and Angie are great and make you feel very welcome. The room was lovely as was the breakfast. Really like all the nice little touches, the shortbead and scone went down a treat. Would not hesitate to stay here again

Just had a wonderful night at the Fairways in premier room. It is well beyond what you would expect of a B & B. Don't even think about staying in a hotel in St Andrews, all you need is at Fairways. By far the best B & B we have found - anywhere! From the greeting from Paul who kindly... More

Stayed for 2 nights on 7th & 8th Feb and can only confirm the reviews posted here by others spotlessly clean modern rooms with new bathrooms although a bit small not really a problem.Breakfasts were cooked to order with locally sourced quality produce apparently if you need anything special they will try their best to provide it.
