A comfortable B&B room en suite, very clean. B&B is well located close to the centre of St Andrews but in a quiet and pretty party of the town with free parking close by. B&B has a nice garden. Lovely full Scottish Breakfast.

The photos on tripadvisor don't do this B&B justice. It's a lovely period cottage in a quiet residential area which is only a five minute walk from South Street. The location is perfect for exploring St Andrews on foot, and there's free parking in the nearby streets if you have a car with you. The room we stayed in at... More

This is a very picturesque B and B, the garden I imagine being lovely in Spring/Summer. The room we stayed in was very cosy with both the room and en suite being spotless. The owner, John was very welcoming and couldn't have done more for us. The breakfast the following morning was delicious. The centre of St Andrews is only... More

My wife and I stayed while attending a conference. The Spindle was not the first place we tried to book in St Andrews, but we were very pleased that we ended up here. The best feature of the Spindle was the breakfast. As well as the usual items, John put out generous helpings of fresh fruit. And unlike many other... More

Stayed three nights at this nice B&B in St. Andrews. Called John, the host, to find the place, as it is not directly along the street, and it was easy then. Nice, quiet location, and the rooms are really cosy, well equipped and nicely decorated. The one I stayed in alone might feel a bit small for two but was... More

Arrived in St Andrews towards the end of a two week vacation in Scotland with no place to stay. Took advantage of free Wi-fi at Costa Coffee and found The Spindle B & B on line, called John, and was able to secure a room for the night for my sister and myself. Very great location on the burn, easy... More

I have been staying at the Spindle several times per year for over 3 years whilst visiting family. John is the most welcoming host one can imagine, the rooms are cosy and well equipped with not only coffee and tea but also confectionery. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are also well equipped with shampoo etc.The breakfast is... More

Perhaps unusually I stayed at the Spindle for seven consecutive nights; I would think most stays are for a night or two. I had single occupancy of a double room and while it was ideal for me, on essentially a business trip, the room might have proved a little small for two for such a length of stay. Otherwise it...

We stayed at this B&B because we there was no availability in other B&Bs in St. Andrews for that day. John was very friendly and nice, and the location is lovely. While some minutes away from attractions, it is right by the burn, and quiet. That being said, the rooms are OK but average, the decor a bit outdated, beds... More

We stayed a couple of nights in June 2013. The location is very good, easy walking distance to the centre of the town. The room itself was small and the en suite tiny. While ok for us, I would not want to stay here on business as there would be no space to do any work. Breakfast was OK though... More

Welcome to The Spindle, a small personally run Bed and Breakfast situated in a central but quiet location in the famous town of St. Andrews. The Spindle is south-facing and sits overlooking the Kinness Burn which flows along the foot of the garden. The garden has lovely terraced areas and little 'sitooteries' where you can relax and watch the world go by whilst enjoying a glass of wine. ... more   less
