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

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
