We selected the Spindrift to be close to a family get-together in Crail, which in December had limited options. We were so happy. The place is lovely, with a great living room area to sit, watch TV, chat and have drinks from the well-stocked honor bar. Breakfast was fabulous with great eggs, potato scones and coffee. The porridge was very... More

I have stopped here twice before - as part of a golfing party and also for a weekend away with my wife. This time I stayed with my wife & daughter for one night. We had the family room with breakfast and everything was as great as it was on my previous visits. We can't recommend this place enough and... More

Stayed one night on business as a lone traveller. Stayed here once before and it was an easy decision to book again... Very comfortable, spotlessly clean and welcoming. Good WiFi signal. Lounge area for residents is great. Breakfast ample and tasty. Could you ask for more? 😀

This beautiful guest house was recommended by a friend and I'm glad she did. Fantastic host & hostess excellent service at breakfast and dinner was super. Very comfortable and well decorated room and spa bath definitely a hit. Lots of little touches made our stay so comfortable. Unusual to find a guest lounge which is tastefully decorated and a well...

This is a real gem. Ken and Christine are excellent hosts. The home cooking is exceptional hand the porridge with bananas and maple syrup at breakfast is worth dying for. I can not praise the Spindrift enough. Ken even organises the golf and weather! Peter.

Guest house staff were all very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were a good size, bed was very comfortable. There were lots of little extras which made you feel at home. The ensuite was lovely however the shower pressure was poor, but not off putting (just took longer to wash the shampoo out) Breakfast was lovely. Highly recommend staying here.

Stayed two nights in October in top floor (Captain's Room) - very characterful and well equipped. Evening meal and breakfast both good and owners and staff very friendly and professional. Honesty Bar a good idea. Guest House is on fringes of Anstruther but it is not exactly a massive place so gentle 5-10 minute stroll to the centre. Anstruther (and... More

Arrived exhausted and far too early but was made extremely welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely room, great breakfast, huge choice, good places to eat in town. The house is a really nice piece of architecture. Very highly recommended indeed.
