Just returned from 2 nights in the yellow room at Cambo. One of the largest bedrooms we have ever stayed in the four poster bed was very comfortable. So impressed with the history in the house. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. We walked in the gardens and saw the tail end of the snowdrops wonderful. Nice little café... More

Sadly we didn't stay at Cambo, but enjoyed an afternoon visit. Food very good value in the café and lots of choice as far as plants and snowdrops were concerned to buy. At this time of the year the snowdrops are a picture. However, there is so much at Cambo that a visit at any time will be worthwhile.

Just returned from a first visit and 4 day stay at Cambo. Wonderful accommodation in the warm, comfortable and superbly equipped "Lower Servants" quarters where we enjoyed relaxation around a roaring coal fire (fuel included) in our lounge area each evening. The snowdrops throughout the grounds are indeed spectacular and so many varieties to see as you walk around the... More

First visit to Cambo but will definitely make a point of returning. Visited on a beautiful Sunny day which helped considerably. Snow drops were spectacular and I had no idea there were so many varieties. The walk down to the beach along the wooded glen with thousands of snow drops in full flower was very spectacular and the soup and... More

Had a lovely walk along the coastal path at Kingsbarns this week and stopped off at Cambo to see the snowdrops and have some lunch. Havent been there for about 20 plus years. Lunch was really nice, good home made lentil soup and a roast beef and salad roll at a reasonable price. The snowdrops are fabulous and there is... More

We attended St. Andrews for a graduation ceremony and as usual needed somewhere that took dogs. We chose this one because we also live in a place called Cambo, they had a doggy room and it was only 5 miles from St. Andrews. We arrived late and worn out after a longer than expected trip (nightmare three hours around Edinburgh,... More

What a special place. We absolutely loved our stay at Cambo. Staff & owners are welcoming warm and accommodating. The rooms are beautifully decorated with high end furnishings. It's very clean with all the fixings one expects in a high end hotel. The food was delicious. We organized to have dinner. We highly recommend if you can to have dinner.... More

This is a step back in time. Wonderful estate setting close to St. Andrews (birth place of golf) and lots of places of history in the Kingdom of Fife. Located on the North Sea with beautiful Gardens, tennis courts, court yards and sheep.. Rooms are large and comfortable, with water coffee and tea. Our bathroom was in the hall and... More

Beautiful house. Amazing setting in many acres of parkland. The Blue Room was massive. Comfortable with stunning furnishings. Large bathroom. Nice cooked breakfast with freshly squeezed chilled orange juice.

Have just had 4 nights at Cambo House, it didn't start well as there was no one around when we arrived so we had no idea where to go to find our room, but it all ended well. Our 'apartment' was the Lower Servants Quarters - it was a huge space - 2 bedrooms, a very large sitting room, a... More
