“Fantastic Accomodation, Warm Host”
Reviewed January 31, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Sauchur Point is a hidden gem.

We were greeted warmly by the host and shown to our attic conversion room. The room was very spacious and modernly decorated - very stylish. The facilities in the room were excellent with a large TV with good selection of channels, large bed and sofa and a beautiful bathroom.

The breakfast is locally sourced and well presented - plenty to eat and it's all delicious.

Was very impressed with this property and would definitely stay there again, many thanks for a peaceful night away.

“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed December 12, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

My husband and I were attending a dinner at The Ship Inn in Elie and decided to stay the night rather than drive home late. It could not have been better. The room or should I say studio apartment was stunning and just as the photos portray it on the website. it was so spacious yet warm and cosy. Every detail thought through. The breakfast was delicious and ingredients were of a high quality. The smell of bread baking in the morning was a great way to wake up. There was no pressure in the morning to leave. Sue is a warm and friendly hostess, a charming couple. We are definitely going to return now we have found this gem .of a B&B

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here to have a meal in the recently refurbished Ship Inn and as accommodation in the village is limited we reluctantly settled for a B&B.
What a fantastic spotless Place with the most friendly owners, I would think most B&B owners can learn from this accommodation. There is only 1 huge room with fantastic views over the Forth, the Breakfast regardless of where you stayed could not be beaten, we even got a jar of local marmalade home with us?
The Ship Inn was also excellent and will review shortly, but we will certainly return to both. Recommend to others?...without a doubt.

“Totally Wonderful”
Reviewed July 20, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If you are a couple and thinking of visiting Fife stay here. Sue, Roddy and Rosie the dog made our 5 night stay special. The room is fantastic and the breakfasts are wonderful. Both Sue and Roddy go the extra mile and it all makes Saucher Point a brilliant place to stay. Everything is within reach and the seafront, a five minute walk, if that. Take our advice and book it, you will not be sorry. Thanks Sue and Roddy once again for making our stay special. Chris & Di.

“Insiders' Tip”
Reviewed March 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2014

We spent about two weeks in Scotland and stayed at a lot of very nice B&Bs, never more than two days in one place. Still, Sauchur Point with Roddy & Sue was extraordinary! The hosts are both amazingly charming and the accommodation is outstanding. Very homelike at a high standard for a more than reasonable price. The room and bathroom definitely look as advertised and the view is stunning.

Roddy recommended The Ship Inn (apparently under new ownership by now) next to the harbour for the evening and we enjoyed a beer outside the pub watching the sunset.

The next morning breakfast was delicious and afterwards our hosts provided us with ideas for our journey - as Elie was the starting point of our tour through Scotland (after Edinburgh).

Thanks, Roddy & Sue, for making our stay so special. We apologize for the late review - should have done it months ago. We will definitely be back as we fell in love with Elie/Fife & the Sauchur Point!

“Superb studio-style bed and breakfast”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

We arrived to a very warm welcome from Sue & Roddy and were led up to the studio. It was exactly like the photographs on-line - very modern, clean, superbly appointed with sea views from the windows.

It was very nice to return in the evening and sit comfortably on a settee to watch television or to read, rather than perching on a bed.

The bed itself was very comfortable and the fittings in the bathroom were of a very high standard.

In the morning, the breakfast was top quality with plenty of choice and we didn't feel rushed to finish and check out.

Would definitely stay there again and would recommend to others.

Roddy and Sue are extremely friendly and hospitable hosts who have thought of everything for their guests. The room is really more of a suite, with a comfortable lounge area. This suited us perfectly because we wanted to go walking during the day and come back to a 'home from home' at night. We had plenty of space to really relax in. The room, bathroom and furnishings are of very high quality and very well maintained. It makes a nice change to stay at a B&B that is so nicely appointed. Breakfast was outstanding (fresh home baked bread and even a double yolked egg!) and we thoroughly appreciated the very personal touch offered by Roddy and Sue - who even bought a lovely birthday card for my husband! We loved everything about our stay and will definitely return.
