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

What a little gem in this wee little town! Annie is a great innkeeper; friendly and helpful- and a great cook! Good full Scottish breakfasts are her pleasure! The rooms are sparkling clean, tidy, and well-stocked with tea, biscuits, bottles of water and fresh fruit. They have a private parking area behind the Inn, which was much appreciated!

Me and my partner stayed here for two nights. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. We woke up for breakfast both mornings and enjoyed the full Scottish. Our host, Anne was extremely polite, friendly and helpful. I would definitely return.

Had a five star experience over the two nights we stayed. Rooms and dining room perfect, exceptional breakfast - the fresh fruit salad, smoked haddock with poached egg and freshly squeezed orange juice were outstanding and better than we've had anywhere. Anne's helpful and caring approach was also lovely and much appreciated.

Sorry, Ann, I'm feeling almost ashamed to give four out of five points to your place... It's just that we've been so spoilt, probably, at some equivalent places... The Crichton House is, indeed spotless and we loved the furniture. Our bathroom was excellent with a very good shower system. Very quiet place. Good breakfast in a lovely room. Wonderful view...

Really nice place to spend some time.We want away for a night and could not have picked a better place to stay. The view from the room was fantastic. The room was the cleanest and best painted room I have ever seen in any B&B. The walk to the town was short and enjoyable.

Our second visit, and every bit as good as the first. Very friendly welcome from Anne, and she even remembered us from our only previous visit four years ago. Comfortable and spotless room, great shower, complimentary water and fruit as well as the usual tea/coffee etc. Breakfast was delicious once again, and having learned it was my birthday, Anne even...
