We have recently returned from St Andrews where my husband fulfilled a lifetimes dream to play the Old Course. Our stay with Elaine and Derek at Kinburn just completed what was a fantastic three night break. The hospitality we received exceeded most 5 star establishments. The room was beautifully decorated with a local theme, quality furnishings and a lovely comfy... More

I rented their largest accommodation, a two room suite on the first floor. This was also the most expensive. The room sizes and beds were good. It would be nice to have a desk lamp for the small desk area. However, there were two problems that significantly diminished my overall experience with this Guest House. I stayed there for six...

Thank you Jerald for your review. I have to say that you were the worst guests we have ever had at our guest house and you made me feel uncomfortable in my own home. I found you alternative accommodation and asked you to leave but you insisted on staying saying you were very happy with everything and that you liked... More

This is such a well-located place with easy free on-street parking and a very short walk into the centre of town. Elaine and Derek were very friendly and welcoming as well as ready to answer our questions. Our room was beautifully decorated and clean as well as comfortable with all anyone could need. As an example, whenever we've stayed anywhere... More

Situated in a conservation area of St Andrews this lovely guest house is a real find! Beautifully decorated throughout and very comfortable. Would recommend this guest house over many of the big hotels in the area any day. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely hosts (Derek even drove us to the Byre Theatre on our first night) and...

A lovely little property down a quiet street but still only 5 mins walk to the centre of town. Across the road from the museum so it looks out onto the gardens. Parking is free on the road opposite (which is handy) and from what I saw this appears to be one of the only free places to park in... More

We have just spent a couple of great nights at this lovely guest house. Warm welcome, great room and fantastic breakfast. The location is nice and quiet but within a few minutes walk of "downtown" St. Andrews. Oh and a big thank you to see our hosts for my Easter "Birthday" Egg! Hope to see you again.

Again after first visiting in 2014, the level of service was sublime. For those who want the little things that count when away from home you cannot look any further if you are in the St Andrews area than the Kinburn. It is a private lovely Guest house, that is within 300 metres of the high street and its restaurants/bars.... More

This is our third visit to the Kinburn Guest House for a golf break, Derek and Elaine are wonderful hosts, nothing is ever too much trouble. Breakfasts are always top notch and just what you need when playing 36 holes of golf!!! When we visit again next year I will be sure to book up again with them.
