We spent a night at the in-town Brownlee's Guest House in golf-mad St. Andrews. It's golf centered for good reason... it's the birthplace of the game. The Old Course at St. Andrews is undoubtedly the most famous course in the world. Hundreds of elite golfers and their hacker counterparts flow into the city daily to experience the city's wonderful courses...... More

We had a lovely clean room and the bed is sooooooo comfortable, I could have slept for hours :) Breakfast was great and loads to choose from, I had an omelette and it was cooked to perfection. City centre and attractions are close to the guest house. I would recommend... More

The last half of our first trip to Scotland brought us to St. Andrews, and we could not have picked a better place to stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the location was a block away from the coast and a five minute walk to the R&A and the Old Course. Our hosts were tremendous, going out of... More

As a golfer, you just can't find a better place to stay. Just 3 minute walk off the legendary Old course! I received a very nice welcome from Jacqueline who was expecting me. The breakfast is just delicious and I just had to pop up to see Trevor or Jacqueline inquiring about what I would like to have for breakfast.... More

I enjoyed my stay at Brownlees. Jacqui and Trevor are great hosts. Trevor was friendly, extremely helpful, and provided great breakfast stories and entertainment. Jacqui's was also very friendly and her breakfasts were wonderful. I especially liked the fresh fruit every morning and fresh raspberry preserves.
