We've just returned from a two night stay at Kinburn and would happily recommend it to to anyone looking for a central base for St Andrews. Very comfortable room, very clean, great breakfast, and the hosts Derek and Elaine are absolutely lovely. We would definitely stay here again.

Our bedroom was very comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. Problem with the breakfast was that we had difficulty managing...

I stayed at this guest house while visiting St. Andrew and I must say that Elaine and Derrick are the best at being welcoming. Attentive and friendly. Rooms are so comfortable and spotless. Breakfast with homemade jams, delicious!!! Also the guest house is in walking distance from all stores. Definitely worth staying there.

My daughter and I wanted to take ONE MORE TRIP in Scotland before returning to the U.S. We took the bus from Edinburgh to St. Andrews, walked in a slight drizzle (it was Scotland, after all) to Kinburn Place. Couldn't have asked for a more comfortable, lovely, amazingly well-appointed place. There had been some confusion in reservations, but Elaine had...

Our visit to St. Andrews was wonderful and made even better by this fantastic B and B. The rooms were nicely decorated and very comfortable. The best thing about this place was the location. It is an easy walk to the Old Course, but not right on top of it. The thing is the course is on the edge of...
