I stayed here whilst competing in the Eden tournament roughly 5 years ago now for 4 nights, and it was honestly the best I could have ever hoped for and more. A wonderful lady owner, couldn't do enough for me and my brother and made sure every need was met, even getting herself up super early on two occasions to...

From the moment my friend and I walked in the door, Pat was so welcoming and helpful. We got in a little early and she was more than willing to let us set down our things in our delightful room. She made suggestions and gave us weather reports. The room itself, one with two twin beds, was wonderful. The beds...

I stayed at the Fairnie House a week ago when visiting St. Andrews and it was absolutely fantastic! The cleanliness of the B&B was impeccable, service was beyond praise, food was delicious, and location was right around the corner from the heart of the town. Last but not least, Pat was one of the nicest people I have ever had...

We stayed at Fairnie House in May when we visited our daughter and her family who were living in St. Andrews for a few months. We have been traveling in the UK for 25 years and Fairnie House is one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. The entire house is spotlessly clean. Our room was tastefully and...

This is the place to stay for location, comfort and a great breakfast. Our room was spotlessly clean and our host Pat is a lovely, friendly lady, who even ironed my husband's shirt! We were only in St. Andrews for two days for a wedding bur we will definitely return and stay at Fairnie House. Joan Brown Edinnburgh

I stayed here for 5 days whilst on a study trip at the university. The reason I chose it was it looked beautiful from the website images, it was right in the town centre and it had wi-fi. From the moment I arrived Pat could not have been more welcoming and helpful. As I was the only guest she moved...

We've stayed a Fairnie house for five nights to participate in an international conference. This is my first time to go abroad and I had a wonderful experience with this B&B.

My wife and I booked for four nights at Fairnie house and had a lovely stay. Pat was most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.She made us feel more like family members than customers and cooks the most delicious Scottish breakfast.
