My partner and I stayed in St. Andrews for a few nights at the Brownlees Guest House. Excellent location with an average room. Our room was on the 3rd floor and was very small compared to others B&B’s on our trip. Room was a little bigger than the bed with a desk area against the window. Fine for 2 nights but extra space is always nice. The bathroom was tiny but fine for what we needed. The room and bath were clean. WiFi worked pretty well the entire stay. The house is noisy. Being on the 3rd floor and sharing the floor with others who shared a bathroom in the hallway, doors were opening and closing all night and early morning. Breakfast was good, limited vegetarian options, but Jimmy cooked us toasties with only cheese and baked beans. The dining room also offered juices and yogurt. Location was excellent for touring the city. Close to many restaurants and cafes, sites of interest and the ruins of St. Andrews Cathedral and Castle. Parking is an issue, no parking at the B&B, street parking is available if you can find a spot that’s close and free.

Myself and three colleagues recently stayed at Brownlees during the Dunhill Links Championship. This was our second stay at the Guest House and both occasions we were treated to exceptional hospitality. The rooms are extremely comfortable, the breakfasts are fantastic and Jimmy and his wife are very warm and welcoming. I cannot recommend it enough.

Simply the best fruit salad ever. Jimmy and the Missus serve one helluva a Scottish breakfast. Jimmy said he has guests come just for the food and I believe it. The site is two minutes from the Old Course and stumbling distance from several pubs. The only downside is our room has a bed and that's it.

Our group of 4 golfers stayed at the 'Brownlees Guest House' for five nights this past August. The rooms were well appointed, quiet, very clean, and perfect for our needs. Host Jimmy and his wife (and chef) Elan were wonderful - very attentive and helpful with suggestions for non-golf activities. Elan's breakfasts were cooked per request and quite special. They were kind enough to prepare a take-away breakfast for one of the days we had early tee times. Location is perfect - a short walk to the courses, dining & pubs. Cannot recommend enough.

We had the pleasure of staying 3 nights at this little gem. Fantastic location- parking was not an issue with street parking right outside. Our host Jimmy was a wealth of information about the area (and particularly golf courses). Breakfasts were beautifully cooked by his talented (chef) wife. Many lovely thoughtful touches from coffee machine in our room, complimentary Sherry, fruit basket in the dining room, rain ponchos and umbrellas if needed as well as enough books to keep anyone happy if you are having a quiet day. It is a B & B with a flight or two of stairs to climb but don’t let that put you off! Short stroll to Saint Andrews and close to everything! I highly recommend and hope to revisit in the future!
