Y'know, this B&B isn't particularly high-end, and it's a couple of miles from downtown St. A, but don't let that fool you - it's got everything you need and is sited on a farm between two golf courses on an overlook of the sea that's incomparable. Innkeepers are personable, welcoming, and busy. Plan to sit out on the hilltop overlooking...

Thank you very much for all your kind comments, I would just like to add that two of our rooms do have showers and for the one that doesn't there is a separate shower room available. There is also a television available in the sitting room which guests are very welcome to use. I fear the wi-fi is slow because...

It was incredibly difficult finding the house in the dark and when the GPS did not recognise where it was. Even with the postcode typed in. The house was located away from the main road and no sign of Kinkell House on the main road. You have to be at a snail's pace in order to look out for the...

Our driveway on the A917 has a sign on either side of it saying Kinkell House clearly visible rom the main road. We welcome guests to arrive at any time by arrangement, but do suggest an arrival time after 4:30 as a norm. I take the comment re floors strewn with wood to refer to the fact that the entrance...

We spent the better part of a week at Kinkell for our daughter's graduation in late June. I can't say enough good things about our visit. Frippy and Sandy were the best of hosts. The rooms were spacious and clean with wonderful views. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms large. Frippy and Sandy were generous with their advice...

Oh My!! How can I best describe the memorable 3 nights we had with Frippy and Sandy! We were greeted with tea and welcomed so graciously into their home (has been in Sandy's family). We cannot begin to put into words the way we were welcomed!! Our rooms were delightful, with gorgeous views, oversized bathrooms and all the conveniences of...

Spent 3 wonderful nights at Kinkell in August getting a true feeling of Scottish hospitality from Frippy and Sandy. Quiet nights with great beds and bath accomidations. Breakfast was fantastic with Frippy treating us to full "Scottish Breakfast" each morning. Grounds are beautiful with views from everywhere. Quick trip into town, but far enough to have the true farm feel....

I am really sorry this guest clearly did not enjoy her stay, but I must clarify some of the points that are made in the review. There is a perfectly serviceable door entry system at the front door. The front door has a lock and a code entry lock which can be used if we are not in. We are...

Our long, long plane flight was met with a warm welcome and a great cup of tea. Frippy and Sandy were the most gracious of hosts. They essentially shared their beautifully-furnished home with us, including providing afternoon tea and drinks. The full Scottish breakfast was an opportunity to meet other travelers, all of whom shared our enchantment with Kinkell. The...
