“HARD TO FIND BETTER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Absolutely a top B&B. Clean welcoming friendly and very well situated near the Old Course which you can get to on foot. There is a square nearby where we found parking every day. Foodies will like the straightforward breakfasts, golfers will like the downstairs storage, and shoppers can reach the main street on foot. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 2 is on the back

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Doune Guest House. Yufei and Ilya were such gracious and excellent hosts. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The food was excellent and plentiful. Centrally located, it is in a perfect spot for golfers and tourists alike. If looking for a place to stay in St. Andrews, don't look any further!

Found this on the internet with local B & B's to St.Andrews, I knew the location was good as I have been a few times to this part of the world. I have to say the room was great along with the facilities, it's just a shame that Seagulls have to relieve themselves over the car park so often. I know that Del and Marie have now left but if the new owners carry on in the same fashion I can only highly recommend staying here.

Brilliant B&b
Great warmth from Del and Marie
Excellent accommodation and food
Looked after all your needs, comfortable clean, just the best.
Excellent for golfers and visitors to a great place.
If you want to have the best stay in a quality location close to everything you desire you cannot go wrong with this Bed and Breakfast.
I recommend the scrambled egg and Smoked salmon just superb.
Great Bathroom facilities all you need shower gel, shampoo soap all on tap.
I recommend this as probably the best facility I haver stayed in

Room Tip: Twin Room 7. All my friends and fellow golfers enjoyed the experience. Walking distance to the Town...

Stayed for 1 night at Doune House B and B in St Andrews on a golfing trip. Arrived to find that we had been given a double room each, despite booking a double and a twin, at no extra cost! The rooms are immaculate and very comfortable! After a 'few' beers the night before the smell of a cooked breakfast was the perfect aroma to wake to! The breakfast was awesome and set us up for a wonderful days golf!

A colleague and I stayed here for a week while up in Scotland for the week on business. It was by far the nicest hotel we stayed in over the 5 nights. Maria (the owner) was absolutely lovely, and really helpful when we stuck in a traffic diversion on the way there with no idea how to get around it, and with advice about St Andrews. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, neat and pretty, and the breakfast was really excellent. There is also a free car park right next door, which is really handy. A really good stay, I would definitely recommend it!!

Doune Guest House was perfect for our visit to St Andrews. The location is central to everything in town. A large parking lot is a few steps away.
Maria and Dell are most welcoming, and we felt right at home. Our room was spotless and bright. The breakfast was made-to-order and was delicious.
I will gladly stay again when I return to St Andrews! Many thanks to our wonderful hosts.
