I was visiting St Andrews for a school reunion and found The Spindle online as it had been several years since I was last in St A's and was unsure of hotels/B&Bs in the area. From my initial enquiry I was impressed with the speed that John the proprietor replied to me with details of the cost of a one... More

John was really helpful and went out of his way when we booked with them to accommodate my wife who is gluten free. Highly recommend by both of us. We hope to be visiting St Andrews later in the year and we will be phoning Spindle first to see if they have rooms.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night in Sept for our anniversary and we were both very pleased with our choice of accomodation. A beautiful cottage in a very pretty setting. Lovely room, easy walk to town and a yummy breakfast. Johm made us both feel very welcome and we'd certainly return.

My husband and I have just returned from an overnight stay in The Spindle B & B. We plan to return. Our double room was immaculate, beautifully presented and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and John, the proprietor and charming host, was keen to address our every need - even down to fudge in the bedroom (and a small teddy... More

The other reviews are spot on. Beautiful, clean, quiet, perfect B&B. Think John has to have the best place in Scotland, and is the nicest host too, so relaxed, helpful and friendly. Cannot say enough about this wee place, would never consider staying anywhere else in St Andrews after perfect two days. Thanks a million John!

We stayed here for just the one night (many local places stated 2 nights minimum stay) and wouldn't hesitate to recommend John and his B&B to other tourists or more regular visitors. After a very late running train, John accommodated us fantastically and was more than happy to help with luggage arrangements the next day. Breakfast was fantastic and the... More

I stayed at The Spindle with my girlfriend for 1 night at the end of May 2015. We were welcomed by John who was a friendly and attentive host. The B&B is located opposite the pretty Kinnesburn and is quiet as it sits back from the road. The centre of St Andrews is a 5 minute walk away, so excellent... More

Very nice bed and breakfast in St Andrews and extremely handy for the centre. Bedrooms super, John a great host and breakfast super. Hens in the garden and a stream at the bottom of the garden. Lovely - look no further - you have found the perfect spot to explore the City and Fife!
