Failte B&B was a great place to spend our week in St. Andrews. The location is convenient to the downtown area, museums, historic sites nearby or via a short drive, local restaurants and a walk to East Sands Beach.
Jean & Campbell are wonderful hosts providing the feel of 'home' and a 'welcome' that they have known you forever. They had answers to questions and suggestions for places to visit and see as well as interest in where you have been. The bedroom was neat, clean, bright and had more than adequate room for suitcases and included self-service coffee or tea and biscuits. The in room bathroom was up to date, clean and uncluttered. The breakfasts were top notch, with multiple courses and choices held in the dining room which is bright and well appointed. The property is in a residential area and near a school, but there was no noise issue or safety/security concerns.

Room Tip: The Chestnut Room is good for two and is bright in the afternoon.

Many thanks indeed to you both for giving us such a lovely review. So glad you had such positive results when meeting up with relatives and seeing where your ancestors came from. It was a pleasure to meet you and Nancy. The puffin has pride of place in our kitchen! Hope to see you on your next trip here.
Best regards.

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a couple of days in Failure, and we couldn't be more pleased. Jean & Campbell were excellent hosts whose warmth personified that of St. Andrews. They were very helpful with anything we needed.

I’ve just spent a wonderful 6 days with Jean & Campbell. I originally had booked 4 nights , which due to my golf competition being extended at St Andrews, I had to extend. This was not an issue to the wonderful hosts, who were totally flexible. In fact they donated one nights accommodation to one of their charities.
The whole experience was seamless. The accommodation was spotless, and the breakfast, beautifully prepared.
The B&B was a 12 minute walk from the heart of the town, however H&M taxis only charged £ 5 for a trip.
I will definately book at the Failte , when I return.
Thanks for making my experience at St Andrews, one I will remember for the rest of my life.

We spent a couple of nights here while attending the offer day at St Andrews University.
We were warmly welcomed when we arrived and shown to our room which was clean, light and airey. We slept well as the beds were extremely comfortable. Tea, coffee and water, TV and WiFi were all provided making it a home from home experience. Jean and Campbell were very friendly and accommodating. Their knowledge of the local area was great and we enjoyed a couple of lovely walks along the coastal path enjoying the beautiful sunshine on their advice. Although 15-20mins walk from the University, its very straight forward and a pleasant walk through the residential area of St Andrews. You can however get a bus (which stops just round the corner) or a taxi , which costs under £5. There is parking available if you need it. Breakfasts were ordered the night before and cooked fresh, using locally sourced products where possible - all extremely tasty, setting you up for the day. If you need a friendly, comfortable place to stay then look no further.
