A Brilliant Place To Stay
Looking for somewhere close to St Andrews to visit for our Golden Wedding anniversary, we chose Spindrift. It was a marvellous choice. The building itself is beautiful, Ken and Christine could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable - providing a fantastic meal on our special day. All the staff were friendly, the beds comfortable, the guests\' lounge was very convivial, and the countryside around is very picturesque. We miss it already....!

Gem Of A B&b In East Neuk
Lovely, friendly B&B on main road going into Anstruther.

Clean, papers and honesty bar in lounge, all the wee extras in the bedrooms. Delicious breakfast. Would have stayed to eat in evening but had been too late to book. Recommendation to eat at local Golf Club (10 mins walk) was spot on.

Excellent Stay!
The spindrift is in a perfect location, super easy to find for those who don\'t know the area. Our room was comfortable and absolutely spotless and had really great tea and coffee making facilities as well as bottled water which was extremely welcome. The lounge area has one of the most well stocked bars I have ever seen in a hotel of this size and we will definitely be taking advantage of that when we come back (which we will be!) last but not least the breakfast was delicious and the girls serving all very polite and friendly. The owners Ken and Christine went out of there way to make us feel welcome by email and in person and even booked us a taxi to the wedding we were attending. Highly recommend the spindrift to anyone!

Why Would You Want To Go Anywhere Else?
We stayed here for two nights and found the Spindrift to be all it claimed to be. Friendly and welcoming, cosy and comfortable.

We had a lovely room, en-suite, with all we could possibly require, including the now-imperative Wifi!

Breakfasts were delicious. REAL home cooking with locally sourced food.

The Spindrift\'s location is wonderful, providing easy access to all the beauty spots and points of interest in the East Neuk. We\'ll certainly be returning ... and hope to see you there!

This establishment already has four stars and, in our opinion, Christine is the fifth star.

a lucky find on line with splendid results - the most wonderfully appointed room with all mod cons, friendly welcome fantastic breakfast. Just cross we opted not to take the dinner as it promised to be great by all other indicators. if I must nit pick the bath plug didn\'t fit snuggly and the water drained (very slowly) over the course of a much needed long hot soak after a day\'s walking. Do stay and enjoy just not when we want to go back!

Response from Hotel
Thanks for your review.We are sorry to hear about the bed in room 8. This is a fairly new pillow top mattress and agree it makes the bed soft. Some guests prefer this type of bed and some like yourself prefer a more solid bed. We did notice on inspection that the headboard was loose and this has been rectified. If you choose to stay again please request a bedroom with a harder mattress. Ken & Christine

Distance 5.56 miles (8.89 km)
The Kingsbarns Golf Links site has long been known for its intimate connection with the sea. The fact that it's golf origins date back to 1793 is testimony to the attributes of the site which foster ideal conditions for links turf to flourish amid interesting natural terrain. This unique part of East Fife has sandy soils, undulating ridges and hollows, Cambo burn running into the sea, all set immediately against the rugged coastline of the North Sea. Kingsbarns Golf Links is a tribute to its rich Scottish links heritage. Kingsbarns Golf Links is located on the seacoast near the village of Kingsbarns, 10 km southeast of St Andrews, Fife.
