We arrived after a long but beautiful walk along the Fife Coast. The hosts and facility were everything one could hope for to be truly pampered. We would definitely recommend this charming place to others and would would stay there again if we are so fortunate to be in St. Andrews in the future. Duncan and Mary Jo

A very warm welcome especially for my exhausted wife as we walked from Crail to St. Andrews, last part in rain. Good beds, as we were tired anyway we were thankfull for them. Also breakfast was a pleasure.

A wonderful B&B just a few minutes walk into the centre of St Andrews, in a quiet street. The breakfasts were superb with lots of choice including gluten free and Jean and Campbell were the perfect hosts.

Jean and Campbell are great hosts and full of information from bus schedules to walks to restaurant recommendations. We loved their attention to detail in our clean, modern room, including maps/brochures of the area, hair dryer, and coffee amenity tray (yummy Walker shortbreads!). Nothing was too much trouble for them to ensure our short stay was pleasant. The bus stop... More

Very comfortable B+B with lovely landlady Jean. Great choice of breakfast from low cal fruit to full Scottish fry with local ingredients. Very quiet suburb not far from St Andrews centre where we visited our son who is a student in the university. Plenty of info available on local attractions and activities.

The house looks lovely from the kerb and this continues inside with perfect, clean decor and spotless facilities. Jean and Cam are very inviting and friendly, with some interesting stories from their rich lives. The food is excellent and they catered for my wheat intolerance without batting an eyelid.

Failte is situated in a residential area of St Andrews outwith the main tourist area. There are two bedrooms let out. Mine was perhaps on the smaller than average size for a double bedroom. However there is a spacious and comfortable dining/lounge area with TV reserved for guests. The property has clearly been modernised to a very high standard in... More
