I could write a lot but simply excellent all round. Cental for Anstruther and surrounding area including St Andrews. V comfortable rooms, well equipped. Breakfast all you could ask for including freshly squeezed orange juice. Mine host could not have been more helpful.

This is a fantastic b&b in a beautiful part of the East Coast of Scotland. It is so central to Anstruther, but also to the surrounding towns and villages. I took a short trip here in June with my mum, and Anne made us feel so very welcome. Such a comfortable and relaxing place to stay. The advice was great... More

We echo all the complimentary views of this lovely b&b. Along with the comfortable room, including a spacious and perfectly spotless bathroom and the tasty breakfasts with fresh fruit, what makes this b&b most special as others have said is the wonderful hospitality Anne showed us. If Anstruther is on your travel list, be sure to stay at Crichton house.

We stayed here for 1 night in July 2015 during a trip through Southern Scotland and Northern England. Our room was charming and spacious with a view down on Anstruther harbour. The ensuite was large and clean. Breakfast was wonderful and staff very welcoming and helpful. The B & B is not right in the main part of Anstruther but... More

We spent one night at Crichton House and we enjoyed it very much. The lady who runs it is just lovely, she made us feel very welcome all the time and she cooked a delicious Scottish breakfast for us. Our room was small but recently renovated, very clean and with a stunning view on the sea. The only downside for... More

This was our second visit to the charming town of Anstruther. Having had such a warm welcome and wonderful stay at Crichton House last time we wouldn't have dreamed of going anywhere else and we weren't disappointed. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed and Anne welcomed us like long lost friends. The rooms are smartly decorated and furnished with... More

Delightful location in Anstruther (go to the fish & chips place) - very good spot if playing golf in St. Andrews or @ Crail. Great accommodations, cozy rooms, nice bathrooms and delightful, homemade breakfast. Anne could not have been a nicer, more gracious and hospitable host. I look forward to visiting again in the future.

On our arrival, Anne met us in the car park with such a warm welcome, I knew we'd chosen the right guest house! She really goes out of her way to make you feel at home. The location of the house is perfect; within easy walking distance of the harbour, golf course, town hall and shops. Our room was a... More
