Stayed here Sept 15 and 16 2014 with another couple. We arrived a bit early but was told that was no problem. We were invited into the lounge while they finished making up our rooms. Hospitality was great and the breakfast here was the best we had in Scotland. The bar in the lounge had a very good variety to... More

A very warm welcome, lovely room with en suite, spotless, comfy, cozy. Beautiful lounge with a wide range of drinks at our disposal. Breakfast was amazing! Such choice and fit for a King and Queen! We stayed for the last 2 nights of our honeymoon, our room was decorated when we came back in the evening with congratulations banners/balloons/ streamers,... More

I am not a B & B person usually however if more places like this were available I think I might be converted. Extremly well maintained. Food is good and freshly cooked. Beds are well presented. Bathrooms in excellent condition. This town is only a few miles from St. Andrews which makes it a convenient location if accommodation is not... More

Booked because of the reviews. We stayed end of August. Our room was out of the eighties. The furnishings were dated and room quite small. There was no where to sit and put make up on. The chest of drawers was stacked with magazines and cuddly toys on the bed. Not to everyone's taste. The lounge is full of family... More

Thank you for your feedback and we are concerned that you did not enjoy your stay with us recently. We do read the comments from our guests and find both positives and negatives a great way to measure guest satisfaction levels. From your comments we would presume you were in Bedroom 2, (Pittenweem) and although we fitted a new carpet... More

We recently had a three night stay at "The Spindrift" and wished we had booked for longer. This is a wonderful B & B with hosts Christine and Ken going out of their way to make your stay a place to remember. The room we had was on the top floor in the attic but don't let that put you... More

Perfect two night stay. Especially impressed with the young staff… very professional and entered into the spirit of the fun the silver wedding party that we were with were having! Friendly, hospitable establishment and lovely location near the sea with superb coastal walks.

This guest house is pretty close to the center of Anstruther, so its location is excellent for those who want to explore this or any other neighbouring little town (even for those relying on public transportation - like myself). The service was very friendly and efficient. Christine was always willing to provide help when requested. I was a guest for... More

Very friendly reception. Room and service excellent. Breakfast was better than in many "upmarket" hotels. Would have no hesitation in recommending The Spindrift. We were very pleased that we had chosen this Guest House.

We stayed at The Spindrift on 12th August. We stayed at the Captain's room, which was very small and had only a very small TV, but a nice bathroom. The room and all the areas in the guesthouse were very clean. Dogs are welcome, which we, although dog lovers and dog owners, didn't like very much, there was a large... More
