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

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

First thing is parking can be difficult. Brownlees its self is a nice tidy place to stay rooms tidy and clean. Scottish breakfast sets the day up nicely. Walk down the ally on to seafront with great views over links to the left and only 100 yards or so to R and A. So all round good place to enjoy... More

Having stayed at Brownlees before, the choice - again - was an easy one. Its central location, the rooms and breakfast choice all make for the imo best BnB in St. Andrews. Jacqui and Trevor are the best hosts you can look for and made our stay feel like a real home away from home. Thanks for your hospitality and... More

It is almost in the center of town and within walking distance to not only the St. Andrews Golf Courses but to some really neat pub dinners. Trevor and Jacqui are... More
