We had a comfortable room, and enjoyed excellent breakfasts. This is a good location for visiting scenic fishing villages and has easy access to St. Andrews. Christine was a perfect hostess and made us feel right at home. We plan to return.

We enjoyed all of the facilities from Captains Room to Lounge and Dining Room. The welcome and positive service received from owners and staff was exceptional. Evening meal was first class. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Spindrift to our family members and best friends.

We had a truly wonderful stay at the Spindrift guest house in Anstruther! What a beautiful room, with a great sea view and every detail attended to. It's the little things that make the difference: the complimentary hand-made shortbread, Pittenweem Chocolate and lovely toiletries. Spare blankets and hot water bottles were also provided. We had the comfiest bed and our... More

Beautiful House decorated with tiny artificials - every room is unique !! View from the Captain s cabin is amazing!! Close to centre - any Restaurant can be reached by a walk ;) The car park is a bit small but managable. Breakfast is delicious - just choose from the menu. Highly recommended accomodation!!

We enjoyed a fantastic 2 night family (myself, wife and 5 year old daughter) break at the Spindrift - the breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day for our travels in the wonderful East Neuk of Fife.

The porridge for breakfast is amazing!! I've never tasted oatmeal so delicious. We also thoroughly enjoyed the "honesty bar" which allowed us to sample to new and very fine single-malt Scotchs at very reasonable rates. The hosts love the town, and gave us fine recommendations for spending a beautiful afternoon.
