What their guests think:

“Best sleep ever! Very comfortable and lovely welcome”

“A pleasant last minute find through the St Andrews accommodation website where we ended up staying 3 nights instead of the originally planned 2. Elaine has done a fantastic job of decorating this property where the accommodation could easily beat a similar 4-star chain hotel. Breakfast was great and both Elaine and her husband Derek are great hosts where they are easy to chat with. Good parking, Internet service and easy walk to restaurants, golf courses and historical attractions. Highly recommended!”

Reviews from our guests:

“Just spent a couple of days at Kinburn House with Elaine and Derek. Great hosts and very comfortable B&B. Would highly recommend to stay there while in St. Andrews. Very enjoyable! Location was good and we could walk to The Old Course as well as the shopping and restaurant areas. The hospitality of the hosts was outstanding!!”

“This was our 2nd stay and it was as good as the first. Great location, beautifully decorated and the breakfasts are very tasty! The bed was so comfortable – best nights sleep i”d had in a while. Not right in the heart of town but that meant it wasn’t noisy and St Andrews is so small you can walk everywhere in 5 minutes anyway. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.”
