We stayed at The Spindrift to attend a wedding in Anstruther. Christine greeted us all (unbeknown to us quite a few of the wedding party were staying here) and we realised we had made an excellent choice - bedroom very clean and warm with lovely touches such as fresh coffee, shortbread and locally produced chocolates. The breakfast was delicious with...

A welcome port on a blustery day in February, our every need was catered for from the basics - a comfortable ensuite room and tasty home cooked breakfast; to the little extras - the well stocked honesty bar in the residents lounge, the cafetiere, coffee and shortbread in the room. Highly recommended!

We were welcomed by the friendly hosts who took time to show us around. The room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Evening meal, which had to be pre-booked, was delicious as was the huge choice for breakfast. Overall, a delightful stay and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Spindrift.

We recently stayed here, choosing it mainly based on Trip Advisor reviews...and were not disappointed. Both rooms were very comfortable, clean and super facilities, we were well looked after. We stayed in for dinner on both nights and the quality and quantity of the food was excellent. Breakfast was fresh and filling, I would highly recommend The Spindrift to anyone....

We were so impressed by the service and amenities at The Spindrift. The selections for the full breakfast are all sourced from local farms - free range eggs made to order, my favorite. The bath amenities are similar to a 5 star hotel. The WiFi is top speed. Bed is comfy. Coffee service includes fresh French pressed ground coffee and...

The location is at the edge of the small village, the host were helpful and pleasant. I have problems with steps due to an accident in 2015. We were put in the top floor attic. I would not recommend if you have problems with many, many steps. The parking is very tight.

Thank you for your comments We are obviously disappointed that you were not happy with your stay in August and we can only apologise for this. We agree we have a number of stairs to the 2nd floor (not the attic) but it would never be our intention to put you there if we had known of your accident. Perhaps...
