What a fantastic stay form start to finish. We received a very warm welcome and quickly checked into our room which was very clean and comfortable in such a beautiful house. We made use of the guest lounge on a rather wild day which my son loved especially playing dominoes. Breakfast was lovely with so much to choose from and... More

The Spindrift was recommended to us by the vet ( in St.Monans ) treating our dog for cruciate ligament damage. What a marvellous B&B with great hosts in Ken and Christine who made our stay of 5 nights very welcoming. Breakfast was excellent with many choices and even a daily "special". We intend to return soon.

Picked at random for a weekend away. What a lovely find. We arrived on valentines day and had booked an evening meal for two. Ken and Christine, the owners treated all the guests to champagne before dinner, a fresh red rose for each of the ladies and lovely valentines table decorations. Lovely food. Home cooked using local produce. A good... More

Nice tradiotional breakfast, cosy atmosphere, great honesty bar - and great hospitality; one of us suffered from a cold but we had ran out of painkillers upon check out, but Spindrift supplied us with a batch of paracetamols, which really made the trip to Edinburgh more convenient. Thanks!

Just spent a few nights here with friends. Very welcoming hosts and friendly, efficient staff. Super-clean, without feeling uncomfortable. Breakfast was top notch and our evening meal was excellent value, beautifully cooked and presented. The dated ( but immaculate) decor and lots of ornaments won't be to everyone's taste, but it all creates a warm, friendly ambience and Christine and... More

Is this the perfect B&B? Certainly the best I've stayed in during trips to Scotland. Very friendly owners with excellent food, great ambience including a well stocked honesty bar in the lounge. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the breakfast was superb especially the porridge and eggs benedict. Highly recommend a stay with easy travel to St Andrews.

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
