Stayed for two nights this week in a lovely twin bedded room overlooking Murray Place. The room and bathroom were immaculate and my breakfast each morning was quickly prepared and delicious. I will definitely use Brownlees for my next golfing trip.

Four of us had the great pleasure of staying at the Brownlees Guest House in St. Andrews for the second half of a Scotland Golf trip. We greatly enjoyed our stay. The Beds were very comfortable, the rooms outfitted neatly including a small bottle of Single Malt. Breakfast was very good, and our hosts were splendid. Very accommodating and helpful... More

If you are fortunate enough to book at least one night at Brownlees consider yourself lucky! We stayed not only one night but six magical nights. We did play the Old Course and as phenomenal as it is staying at Brownlees was the icing on the cake for my husbands birthday! The hospitality, the location, the fabulous room and of... More

Trevor and Jacqueline are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much for them. Trevor lugged my large suitcase up the 40 something steps to my room! The room was beautifully furnished. They leave a decanter of Scotch in the room for guests to have a glass or two. The breakfasts were beautiful and the Guest House is centrally located so... More

Wonderful two nights here. Great location, really lovely room and the hosts were brilliant (really friendly). Breakfast was also amazing! Everything we needed and more - the showers are especially fab! St Andrews itself is great, we had some brilliant long walks along the beach despite the wind!

Fantastic accomodation and hosting. Location excellent in the heart of St Andrews, and is very good value in comparison to the nearby hotels. Lovely couple running the guesthouse - even had complimentary whiskey in the room on arrival!

Wonderful weekend staying in Brownlees Guest House! Lovely hosts Trevor and Jackie, who made us feel so welcome and relaxed in our surroundings. Located in the perfect place in St Andrews, close access to restaurants, shops pubs etc. Would highly recommend staying here, great rooms/ facilities and a delicious breakfast each morning.

My girlfriend and I recently moved to St. Andrews for work, and in a last-minute scramble to secure accommodations one night we had the extremely good fortune of booking a room at Brownlees Guest House. The owners, Trevor and Jacqueline, proved to be so welcoming and hospitable that we quickly decided to stay an additional two nights. Everything about their... More

4 of us had the pleasure of staying at Brownlees with Trevor & Jacqueline for a golf break playing the famous old links which are conveniently within walking distance of the hotel as is the town centre where bars and restaurants are plentiful. The rooms we had were spacious and well equipped along with being immaculately cleaned and a couple... More

My son met Trevor and Jackie in Aberdeen at The Scottish Open. He organised to stay at Brownlees during our weekend trip to St. Andrews. The hotel was located close by the Old Course 1st & 18th and we walked to the tee. Trevor organised a taxi for us the next day and both he and Jackie couldn't have been... More
