“We'll be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Rick Steve's was right again! My wife and I just stayed at the Doune House in St. Andrews and came away tremendously impressed with every aspect of our two night stay. Our room was spacious, bright, airy and impeccably clean. Comfortable beds, fluffy towels and very quiet. Our very entertaining host, Dell, served up a delicious breakfast each morning along with commentary that had us chuckling throughout the day.
St. Andrews is extremely charming and walkable to begin with, but the Doune House is perfectly located, mere steps from the Old Course and tremendous restaurants. When we return to St. Andrews, we will definitely stay at the Doune House.

Due to the 100% favourable reviews on Trip Advisor I was delighted to find availability here. I stayed in a single room for 5 nights during the Ricoh Ladies Open and was looked after perfectly.
The proprietors are so welcoming and are happy to sit down in the small dining room and chat away with you.

Single bedroom though small was perfect for me and the bed was most comfortable. My ragged bed-making was immaculately tidied every day. Shower room first class and lovely personalised breakfast (just fill in sheet with your requests the previous evening).

All the local info you could wish for and an added bonus for me was the free use of an umbrella. The one I chose could also be used as a walking stick.

Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Single room is on the 3rd floor. Shower room, though not en-suite, is adjacent.

We stayed 3 nights at the Doune House while travelling to St. Andrews. What a wonderful experience. The house is impeccably clean and the "Scottish" Breakfasts were wonderful and came with stories of the area and lots of tips on what to do when we were not playing golf. Maria and Dell were most accommodating and helped us to find places to eat and even made us some needed reservations! On our last day of golf we needed to leave rather early and Maria graciously got up early and had it ready for us.
As far as location, it could not be better. Within a 10 minute walk to the Old course and within a short drive to many other amazing courses.
We highly recommend the Doune house if you are in the area!!!!!

We stayed three nights at Doune House, and the experience was excellent. My husband is a golfer and the location is about 150 metres from the first tee at the Royal and Ancient golf course. They were able to provide excellent information and insights into all golfing at St Andrews. Our room was amazing, it was large, well appointed, great ensuite facilities, spotlessly clean with a large window to allow in the sunshine. Maria and Del were excellent hosts, and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would thoroughly recommend a stay at Doune House.

Exceptionally clean, friendly & cozy. Stayed on a golf vacation during some very rainy days; every day the proprietors accommodated us in drying out our clubs and gear to be ready for the next day. No over packing was necessary. Dell & Maria made certain to make dinner reservations for us every night.
Close enough to the Old Course we walked and carried our clubs.
Thank you Maria & Dell!

Stayed at Doune House for four nights on a golf trip with three buddies. Thank you so much Del and Marie for the absolutely perfect accomodations. The house was extremely clean and the beds were great. The breakfast was outstanding (even when Marie got up really early to feed us before an early tee time). Everything we needed was provided without asking, and they even gave us great tips on things to do around town. It was literally like staying with family. I'm just sorry we had to leave because I know Del wanted to hear more about my Hole-In-One. (Right?) I would highly recommend Doune House to anyone staying in St. Andrews, for golf or otherwise.
