We were in St Andrews for a wedding and booked Kinkell House because it was right next door to the venue. What a beautiful old house, with beautiful grounds. Our hosts were very friendly and served a hearty breakfast. The only downside was the stairs, wouldn't recommend it if you find stairs difficult to manage Otherwise what a great find!

My wife, my mother and I were attending my niece's wedding at Kinkell Byre; my mum is somewhat venerable and less steady on her pins than she once was, so it seemed appropriate to book a couple of rooms in the very nearby Kinkell House. Quite a few of the wedding party stayed at the nearby Fairmont St Andrews. Kinkell... More

Nice rooms and a very friendly staff are the big points for this B&B which is located directly on the road (A917) into St Andrews, situated between Castle Course and Bay Golf Course. Stayed there already twice.

As a tired, single, business traveller, Kinkell, and it's warm and welcoming hosts, was just perfect. I was made to feel at home from the second I arrived and the room was very comfortable with beautiful views. If you want a home from home in a beautiful location and a gorgeous old property, I highly recommend Kinkell. Great breakfast too.

Always warm and welcoming, hosts make you feel right at home but also leave you a lot of space to get on with your own thing. They're also great at giving advice about the best things to see and do in the area. Don't let being a little out of town put you off, it's three minutes into town in... More

We've just spent three lovely nights in this peaceful b and b, very well located for exploring st Andrews and the coastal villages. Incredibly warm welcome and hugely accommodating to our small baby. Delicious full English breakfast and some yummy stewed apricots. Thank you Sandy and Frippy.

We had an amazing wedding experience at the byre. We travelled from South Wales, our son was marrying a local Scottish lass! We were thrilled to discover the venue had a b&b which was walking distance to the wedding venue, same couple running both. The whole family checked in, filling their rooms, welcome was good to begin with, but then... More

I am sorry you feel aggrieved at our surprise at having 8 people, who weren't staying, change in our sitting room, without anyone asking us if this was OK, leaving all their clothes and bags lying around the room. There was also left over lunch & drink left out. We welcome people to our home and are are very flexible... More

We spent three nights at Kinkell House as we were attending a wedding at the (excellent) Kinkell Byre. Frippy (a lovely story about her name) welcomed us as if we were family members.

Kinkell is a large old country house that is very much a private home: there are no room numbers or signs and notices here. The house exudes the character of many generations of occupants. Surrounded by portraits, paintings, bookcases and lots of personal knick-knacks on the antique furniture, and with the owners' discreet but friendly attentiveness, you feel like a... More

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... More
