Our welcome ways really warm, Sandra was great, really chatty and we all loved it. Would definitely recommend this place to stay, just a few steps away from the 18th hole. Very relaxed weekend away with family. Can't wait to go back. Thanks again Sandra see you soon. Kirsty.

The location was perfect. The 18th green of the Old Course was a 30 second walk around the corner and the centre of town was only a 5 minute walk. The room was lovely. Two single beds combined to make a very large and comfortable king-size bed. The bathroom was very functional and the large shower worked brilliantly. The pièce...

Sandra took over the Fairways just over a year ago and it was very good then. Since then it has kept up a great standard. It is excellent food and a very welcoming and attentive lady. Well worth a visit,

My wife and I were visiting St Andrews for our daughter's 21st birthday. We knew nothing about this place beforehand, but it's a fabulous place. Alexandra who manages it is great and her chatter over breakfast makes it more like a family visit than a hotel stay. We will make this our accommodation of choice next time.

We stayed here last weekend for a family wedding. I picked it from the list of options supplied by the bride. Honestly, we could not have hoped for a nicer place to stay. Fairways is small but excellent. Beautiful clean, comfortable and stylish rooms and bathrooms. The location is brilliant for the town, the golf courses and the beach. All...

Spent a couple of nights at Fariways, the location is fantastic and the rooms are tastefully decorated and well equipped. The dining room is quirky and compact and the breakfasts were great. However the best thing about this B&B has to be Sandra, she made us extremely welcome and was good craic! Thank you.

Sandra made my stay awesome. She was extremely accommodating , couldn't have asked for more ! Room was great and a perfect location to access the golf courses and shopping downtown. Was able to park my car next to the 18th fairway and leave it , short walk to my room , and could walk to restaurants and pubs .
