The location cannot be beat! Angie was very helpful, and flexible with us and our schedule. Breakfast was good, but what is it about British/Scottish coffee? It just doesn't taste very good compared to the rest of the world.... I would return to the Fairways in the future!

first of all, the location is just perfect, about 100 yards away from the old course´s 18th green...and the rooms are very nice, especially the upper room, just the sinks were a little too small in my opinion... second, angie serves great breakfast! and she´s a very friendly and helpful person too, so alltogether we really enjoyed our stay there!

After reading the reviews, I booked my parents into Fairways of St. Andrews to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. They had a truly wonderful time, and were extremely well looked after. They had the room at the top with the balcony and said it was fabulous. Am sure the next time they visit St. Andrews they would hope to stay...

Paul, the manager, met us as we parked on the sidewalk to unload our bags. He took them up to our third floor walk up while I sought parking. After...

We were astounded at the location of this guesthouse. It is just steps from the Old Course. The inside doesn't disappoint either. Contemporary in style and with modern comforts, it is definitley a hole in one!! We also liked the personal service, espically at breakfast. Angie, the housemanager is great. She asked if we had any special dietary requirements or...

Forget 5 star hotels. Try staying at The Fairways its unbeatable. Great location, luxurious, scrumptious breakfast and best of all genuine warm hospitality. Will return again and again. Plenty of excellent restaurants nearby best to make a reservation to avoid disappointment. St. Andrews has a great atmosphere with people visiting from all over the world.
