Margaret and James are simply wonderful in their welcome, their friendliness and even their breakfast cooking:-). The room n° 1 was spacious, the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was perfect. James can arrange some tee time on most courses in Saint Andrews. Really value for money. Close to the City Center to visit all major attractions. They can... More

We spent two nights at Braeside House for a family wedding. Everything was lovely - James and Margaret are perfect hosts - very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent and we would highly recommend this guest house to others.

If you've travelled in Scotland, you need to round out your experience by visiting St. Andrews. Although known as the birthplace of golf, it is that and so much more. There are events at the University, one of the world's best, and also historic sites such as the ruins of the castle and the cathedral, once one of the largest... More

I just got back to the states after a lovely stay at the "Braeside Home". I refer to this charming dwelling as "home" as opposed to "house" because of the warmth, friendliness and proper care provided by the proprietors, Margaret & James. The accommodations were clean ,comfortable and relaxing. The flowers were beautiful, the breakfasts splendid ranging from a traditional... More

My daughter and I immediately felt welcome at Braeside House. James and Margaret went out of their way to take care of our needs and answer any questions we had. Breakfasts were delicious and the rooms very comfortable. We would stay there again.

James and Margaret were wonderful hosts and our stay was delightful. The location was perfect- a little off the beaten path but a short walk to the city center. My husband was playing golf during the day so I was on my own, but there was plenty to see and do downtown, from shopping to exploring a castle. You won't... More

This summer I was travelling with a friend doing a road trip through Scotland and I stayed in Braeside House for just one night. Most of the places we booked were Hostels, but I have to say this Bed and Breakfast was a very good discovery. It's managed by a very kind couple; James and Margaret. It's really clean and... More
