“Central stay in Fife”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Booked this 2 days in advance due to not making up my mind and was certainly a good choice.

Easy to find Kingsbarns B&B as they are on the main road through town. Checked in about lunch time and the room was ready. Can be a bit noisy with the room right on the road but not a problem.

Came back late after a round of golf at Kingsbarns Links and was welcomed. Breakfast was nice arranged early as I had to drive a couple of hours ahead of me. Quickly arranged and it was all available as I stepped down the next morning.

Room was in order, the shower was a bit slow but decent enough. Bed was nice and soft with full cushions and bedding.

If you look out for a convenient stay around Fife, this is one, close to St Andrews, Crail, Kingsbarns and the rest of it.

Room Tip: Get one facing away from the main road.

We rang very last minute and were lucky enough to find out that there were vacancies. My husband and I had our dog with us, who was just as welcome. Jayne was really helpful and the room very comfortable.
The B&B is 10 mins walk from a great sandy beach, and on Sunday morning we were treated to a gorgeous breakfast, thanks to Jim.
We had a great stay here and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

We stayed here after being unable to find a reasonably priced B&B in St Andrews, probably because we left the booking too late. Glad we did because it was a very comfortable room, light and airy with a good sized ensuite. Jim and Jayne were very welcoming and provided a good breakfast.
Pity the pub next door has closed so there is nowhere to eat in Kingsbarns but that is probably a good excuse to drive to Anstruther and have fish and chips sitting on the harbour

Lovely find - very nicely decorated, super clean, good breakfast including fresh fruit salad. Great place to stop if you're doing the Fife Coastal trail between Anstruther and St Andrews. Very friendly reception.

Me and my beloved stayed for 2 nights while visiting Kingsbarns for the Dunhill Links Golf at the end of September, and I can honestly say that we thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay.Jim and Jayne were excellent hosts and couldn't do enough for us.The breakfasts were top notch, with a varied choice of items expertly cooked by Jim.
The room was large, with an en-suite, and the bed was just perfect for a good nights sleep.
Jim also booked us into the Barns Restaurant, which is across the road from the B&B, and whos food is also excellent.
I would thoroughly recommend this establishment to anybody that is visiting Kingsbarns, as I would be surprised if it could be bettered.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Gold Room, which is at the front of the house, but from what we saw, all the rooms...

We stayed here for 2 nights during our Fife Coastal Path walk, as there were no rooms available at Crail when we were to have stayed there. Because of this, our hosts had to pick us up and drive us about a couple of times if we were to eat without adding several miles each way to our planned walks. They were super accommodating, very pleasant, and also gave us the excellent advice about visiting the Cambo Estates. The room was very nice and the breakfast was yummy! We enjoyed our stay very much; the Mitchells are terrific!

We stayed in the Kingsbarn B&B for just one night but would happily have stayed longer and hope to return again. The couple who ran it were so lovely and helpful and the price very reasonable for the area but the real bonus was the room. It was immaculate, really nicely decorated and so comfortable with an impressive ensuite bathroom. The location was really quiet so we got a great night sleep and the breakfast the next morning was fantastic. If you are a dogowner it's worth noting that they welcome dogs and were actually looking after a guests dog while they went out for dinner when we arrived.
The only problem we had was getting a late dinner. There's a really cosy looking pub/restaurant next door to the B&B but they refused to take our food order at 8.45pm despite their board advertising food was available until 9pm. So we drove the 15 minutes to Anstruther and had a lovely meal but it would have been better to have enjoyed a meal and a few drinks within walking distance of the B&B.
