Thanks Jean and Campbell for an excellent visit. We spent two nights there while walking the Fife Coastal Path. Although it's nearer the outskirts of the town it's still within walking distance, a short taxi ride or near well served local bus routes. The accommodation is first class and breakfast was varied, well prepared and ample, just what you need...

My son and I went on a short visit to St. Andrews and stayed at Failte, which is within close walking distance of the centre and the sea. We were very happy with our choice of accommodation: the owners were friendly and welcoming, the comfortable twin-bed room had everything we needed, and the two-course breakfast was great! I'd love to...

Almost 5 years after my first visit, I returned to St Andrews and the Failte B and B. The accommodation and the breakfast are as good as I remembered from my first visit. The rooms are spotless and homely. The breakfast dished up by Jean is absolutely delicious. Definitely worth coming back to this lovely B and B.

Jean and Campbell are wonderful hosts. The breakfast is varied and abundant and the beds and en suite comfortable. It is the little touches that makes this the place to stay when in St Andrews: noticing our preferences at breakfast, providing bottled water in the bedroom, changing our towels midweek. Thanks again for making us feel so welcome.

What can I say that has not been repeated over and over again. From the first moment I was greeted by Jean and Campbell to the moment I left I was just treated with such kindness and helpfulness. I stayed for 4 nights while up watching the golf and could not find fault with anything. The bedroom was spotless with...

Jean and Campbell are generous and most helpful hosts, their breakfasts are excellent and their once small house has been skilfully enlarged to give enough space in the bedroom, along with en suite and the necessary furniture. It's not in the centre of St. Andrew's but the walk into town takes only10 minutes and is pleasant and interesting. Also there...

We had a lovely stay. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious. They were especially helpful to us in suggesting things to do in St. Andrews and in recommending the best driving routes when we left. Thank you so much for a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend Failte Bed and Breakfast.

I arrived to St Andrews to drop my daughter off for the University's move in week. Ahead of that time, I coordinated with Jean to have hall supplies shipped to Failte B and B for our arrival. She not only collected the delivery then, but again when we shipped luggage ahead of us. She patiently handled all of my emails...

Jean and Campel made us a very warm welcome. The accomodation was wonderful, the breakfast - Scotish and continental aviable - also. It was a pleasure to be their guests. It was a wonderful stay in St. Andrews.
