We spent two nights here while visiting St. Andrews. Absolutely the best B&B or hotel we stayed in while touring Scotland. Immaculately kept. Recently refurbished baths and bedrooms. Obviously done by craftsmen that knew their business. The proprietor, Catrina, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Breakfast was excellent and cooked to order. We will definitely visit this establishment again.

This lovely guesthouse is a 'home from home' when I visit my daughter who is at university in St Andrews. We are always made to feel so welcome and comfortable. Breakfasts are delicious too. It's only a few minutes walk into the shops at St Andrews, and close to all the sights. Another wonderful stay, thank you.

As a small group of all men golfers from the US and this was a perfect location for us. There are so many good/great golf coarses in and around St Andrews that we could have stay a the full week or more but we only had time for 5 nights. The Yorkston is perfectly located right between St Andrews Golf... More

This is a lovely place to stay! It was spotlessly clean throughout. Our rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast offered huge variety and generous quantity. Our hosts were very pleasant and attentive. If I visit St. Andrews again, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

I am delighted to have chosen Yorkston as our base for our recent trip to St Andrews. We were warmly welcomed by Catrina, who gave us a map and some information about the town before being shown to our large beautifully decorated room. We really appreciated all the thoughtful extras in the room and the massive bed that was so... More

I visited St. Andrew's and Yorkston Guesthouse with my sister during a busy week for golfers in September. The hosts were not at the desk when we arrived, and we hardly saw them for more than a few minutes during our stay though they were kindly. Our twin room was well-lit and appointed with a large bathroom and wall-to-wall carpets... More

Stayed here during the 2015 Open Championship. I cannot comment highly enough on the brilliant accommodation offered here. Each morning a large buffet of cereals, fruits and pastries are on offer before an excellent breakfast tailored to your tastes. Coffee and snacks are available to guests throughout the day. Rooms cleaned thoroughly daily. If would definitely stay here again!

I visited St Andrews alone for work and stayed in the least expensive room at the Yorkston (a single bed without en suite). The location is very convenient, and Catrina and Fiona were incredibly friendly without being the least bit obtrusive. I will happily stay at the Yorkston the next time I visit.
