I stayed here for two nights to visit the University with my two grandparents and i honestly couldn't have asked for more from a guest house! We were given an amazingly warm welcome and the owner was very helpful with maps of the town and helping us find somewhere to eat that evening. The rooms were well decorated and spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the guest house, but it was the bathroom that surprised us. Absolutly everything was provided, from shower gel and soap to cotton wool buds and balls in cute little pots and gorgously fluffy towels. It was these little touches that made the stay extra special. The bed was wonderful and the pillows lovely and i had a great nights sleep both nights, just to wake up to the best breakfast i've had in a while! a choice of cerals, fruit salad and youghurts to keep you going until your made to order cooked breakfast arrives and then toast, coffee and juice. The only way i could fault it was that, if you wanted to try everything, then there was too much!
The guest house is small and that means you get very personal service from the wonderful owners who are more than happy to stop and have a chat with you. They go out of their way to make sure you are alright and enjoying yourself, even to the point of shipping our bag back down to the south of england when we managed to leave it there, which was very much appreciated!
The Location of the guest house is also perfect, 5 minutes from the golf course, 5 minutes from the University, right in the centre of town and a stones throw from a lovely restraunt, you cant ask for anything more. The only problem for some people would be the lack of parking, but that applies to the whole of the town :)
Doune Guest House was an amazing place to stay and i know that my grandparents are planning on staying there again when they come to visit me at Uni. I would definatly reccomend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in St Andrews.
