Not that my review is necessary since everyone else has had the same experience but I just can't help saying how wonderful our time was with Angus and Jennifer. The location, house itself, hosts, and breakfast were absolutely superb. What an experience! Regardless of your reason for being in St. Andrews, you must stay here!

Our stay with Angus & Jennifer Mitchell at their beautiful "Old Fishergate House" B&B in St Andrews was the best place we stayed while visiting Scotland over a two week period. Their home was clean and very comfortable. All our needs (laundry) were met with enthusiasm. The breakfast menu provided us with anything we could want, not to mention how... More

What a brilliant B&B. From the minute we walked in we were blown away by how lovely and well presented our room was. Not to mention how welcoming the owners were. Breakfast was fantastic with a great selection. Location is superb, will be making a repeat visit for sure!

We spent two nights here over the Bank Holiday weekend for a friend's wedding. It really is a wonderful B&B. Jennifer and Angus were brilliant hosts, lovely and helpful from the moment we arrived. Our room was spotless and cosy, with homemade shortbread and fresh milk in a little fridge for tea and coffee. Breakfast was amazing, especially the pancakes!... More

We fell in love with this place on Tripadvisor and then fell in love with it anew when we arrived. The Fishergate House is one of the oldest buildings in St Andrews, located close to the castle and cathedral ruins. It is a home for the owners who rent out two suites on the first floor. Both suites are spacious,... More

Stayed here with friends on a golfing trip. From the moment we arrived Jennifer and Angus were brilliant hosts and couldn't have done more for us. Old Fishergate House is the best b&b I've stayed in. The rooms are really well decorated with a sitting area and modern bathroom. The choice of breakfast and quality of food is as good... More
