5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

What a great place to stay!!!!! Fairways is about 40 steps from the Old Course 18th green and just across the street from the famous Dunvegan Hotel and Pub (perhaps the best 19th hole in golf). Angie is outstanding!!!! She helped with every detail of our stay----her "full monty" Scottish breakfast was off the charts. Our room was comfortable, the... More

When you visit The Home of Golf St. Andrews in Scotland you must try to stay here at this wonderful B&B. Only 100 meters away from hole 18 and 1 of The Old Course. Very friendly people, super rooms and outstanding breakfast!

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
