I and 2 friends were on a bucket list golf trip and Jackie and her staff took very good care of us. The breakfasts were fantastic and the rooms were very comfortable. About a 1 minute walk to the old course and 2 minutes to shopplng. I can't thank Jackie enough for her care will there. I would recommend this... More

I arrange travel for a group of 8 friends every other year and had come across this boutique B&B approximately 10 years ago and have been staying there ever since. Jackie and Norm have always been wonderful hosts and it is obvious they have taken a great deal of time and pride in keeping the look of the rooms up-to-date.... More

Wonderful attention to detail and close to the Old Course and everything in St. Andrews. Jackie and Norman treat you like family. Delicious breakfast and beautiful ambiance. Rooms are large and well kept.

My friend and I staid at this B&B for three nights during a golfing trip to St. Andrews area. It is located just a golf shot from the old course and with plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. Our room was actually a bungalow in the back of the house (garden), which made our stay really practical, comfortable... More

Once again Jackie Wright made us feel welcomed home. Our favorite room on the front had been updated since our last visit and it was lovelier than we had remembered, the beds comfortable as always. The property is always immaculate and I like the taste and style of the interiors. As always the varied breakfast choices were perfect and my... More

I most heartily recommend this unique guesthouse in the heart of St Andrews. The location is superb! Everything the town has to offer is within walking distance. Even though we arrived late in the evening, we were warmly welcomed by Jackie. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. You can tell that the owner has a loving eye for detail.... More

Difficult to not enjoy any trip to St Andrews, especially if one has the opportunity of hitting a small ball around the links. This year, we stayed right in the centre of town - within 5 minutes walk of the first tee. And what a difference it made. The team do a fantastic job - the house is built to... More

Stayed here for a weekend in February. Couldn't fault it. Observations as follows. LOCATION - Perfect, about 300 yards into North Street as you enter the town, on your left hand side. St Andrews is a small place (4 main streets) so this was only a 10 min walk from the heart of the town & from the old course.... More

Firstly you can hardly call the place a B+B it's more like a luxury boutique hotel. The standard of the rooms are fantastic, the hosts wonderful and the breakfast 1st class (try the porridge) I would recommend the B+B to anyone, the location is a few minutes walk to the 18 hole of the Old Course.
