I stayed at this guest house while visiting St. Andrew and I must say that Elaine and Derrick are the best at being welcoming. Attentive and friendly. Rooms are so comfortable and spotless. Breakfast with homemade jams, delicious!!! Also the guest house is in walking distance from all stores. Definitely worth staying there.

My daughter and I wanted to take ONE MORE TRIP in Scotland before returning to the U.S. We took the bus from Edinburgh to St. Andrews, walked in a slight drizzle (it was Scotland, after all) to Kinburn Place. Couldn't have asked for a more comfortable, lovely, amazingly well-appointed place. There had been some confusion in reservations, but Elaine had... More

Our visit to St. Andrews was wonderful and made even better by this fantastic B and B. The rooms were nicely decorated and very comfortable. The best thing about this place was the location. It is an easy walk to the Old Course, but not right on top of it. The thing is the course is on the edge of... More

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.

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
