Angus and Jenny are great hosts. Our room was spacious, lovingly decorated, warm and had a very comfortable bathroom. The breakfasts were fantastic, with lots to choose from. We'd love to come again. Just off the Scores, with the ruins of St. Andrews Castle, and breathtaking views over the sea. Also only a few steps from Market Street, the main...

Situated along a quaint cobbled street just steps away from the picturesque ruins of the medieval castle, cathedral, and harbor, this has become the bed and breakfast against which I now measure all others. It consists of two commodious and wonderfully comfortable suites, wonderfully appointed in almost too-good-to-be-true good taste. The host and hostess are most gracious and kind. Special...

My husband and I booked in here for a family party at very short notice so didn't have very high expectations, but Old Fishergate House was an absolute delight. Jennifer and Angus were incredibly welcoming, the house was super warm and beautifully decorated. Our room was more like a suite, with a lovely seating area and it was the perfect...

Thank you Jennifer and Angus for a totally relaxing, cosy, comfortable overnight stay. Was great to have the little extra "snug" room with armchairs, selection of books,decanter of sherry, homemade shortbread, variety of teas/coffee and mini-fridge with milk and water provided and a fab window seat. Wonderful story about the history of the house, don't forget to ask Jennifer! Delicious...

St. Andrews and this B&B exceeded our expectations. If you want to experience history at its finest then. This this is the place. Located in an ornate street with the castle ruins at one end and the town area with restaurants at the other. Behind you within a few minutes walk is the old cathedral and a lovely walk down...

On a very wet dismal 'dreich' day in early June we were welcomed by our lovely hostess Jenny. Perfect in every way this B&B is absolutely superb! Two large size guest rooms with their own sitting rooms with homemade shortbread , a decanter with sherry, a small fridge, modern large spotlessly clean bathroom, books, traditional decor with loads of history...

I have no idea how you could possibly beat this place in St. Andrews. It hits all the notes.....superb location, charming 350 year old building, friendly hosts, wonderful spacious room, fabulous breakfast. It's a step back in time, in all the best ways. It's not cheap, but it's worth every penny.

With my three adult sons I spent an extraordinary week of hospitality and good cheer at Old Fishergate House, only a few hundred feet from the ruins of St. Andrews Castle, The rooms were bright, spacious, clean and comfortable; the ample breakfasts were superb. Our hostess and host were welcoming and most accommodating. With forty years of experiencing B&Bs, this...

Just one night for our second stay here, about a year after our first. Nothing had changed! Warm welcome from Angus and Jennifer and the Red Room this time. Both rooms, which are really mini suites, are beautifully appointed and ooze good taste. The breakfast again was superb and couldn't resist the smoked haddock omelette. While we have been to...
