I had the pleasure of staying two nights in this beautiful B&B run by two amazing, caring people! Super clean, cosy, private and in a very nice location. A beautiful 10-minute-walk away from the sea! Has an amazing garden outside, but also very beautiful on the inside; lots of green plants and beautiful orchids as well as magnificent furniture! I... More

A warm welcome, comfortable, spotlessly clean and an excellent breakfast. This B&B has two guest bedrooms in a small house situated in a quiet residential estate some 20 minutes walk from the centre of St Andrews. Strongly recommended.

Superb bed and breakfast. Excellent location, very friendly hosts and tasty breakfasts. The en suite room very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Simply the best and highly recommended. Unlikely to find better in St. Andrews . Can't wait to go back.

I travelled to St Andrews recently with my mother. We stayed at Failte and it was one of the best establishments I have visited. Room was clean and breakfast very good quality. It is located in a decent enough looking residential area about 15 minutes' walk from town via the direct (but darkish) route and 20 minutes via the well... More

I stayed for two nights together with my brother when visiting a friend at St Andrews university. From the first second when we arrived our hosts took care of us in every detail: a clear explanation about all the things to know about the BnB, helpful advice to find our way in town and a warm offer to ask for...

I needed a room for a night at short notice due to a late invitation to a dinner and awards ceremony in St Andrews and am very glad to have found Failte B & B online. I was made to feel very welcome from the first contact by telephone and the service provided there was excellent. I had a nice,... More

Thank you so much for your excellent review. Very much appreciated. Also point taken about not having credit card facilities. We are currently looking around to see if we can find a provider of this service whose charges would not adversely affect our policy of keeping our prices as reasonable as possible! Look forward to seeing you when you next... More

We consider ourselves very lucky to have found this charming and very welcoming place in St Andrews. Everything was spotlessly clean and shining - clearly maintained with love and care. We were in the chestnut room (not huge, but big enough for the two of us) and the owners had really anticipated everything one could wish for. There was a... More

We stayed here only one night but we really enjoyed it. The hosts were very warm and the room really confortable and clean. It is not in centre but you can easily reach it by a 15 minutes walking. We really liked it!

Don't be dissuaded by the location. It is a little ways from the city center but not an issue and worth it. Easily walkable. Hosts went out of their way to assist me with everything from directions to bus schedules to restaurants. I would highly recommend this to anyone going to St. Andrews.

Very friendly and welcoming. Our room was immaculate and attractively furnished. The breakfast was spot on. Although the location isn't town centre, it only took us 15 minutes to walk to the university.
