Brownlees Guest House
Ranked #23 of 73 St Andrews B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Great place to stay: a warm welcome from the owners, the best breakfast for a long time (especially the locally sourced bacon, and excellent coffee), and a wonderful grey cat too. Recommend very highly.

Stayed with my daughter for a few days in early September, before orientation (Freshers' week) and her move into residence hall at the university. It was a perfect match for us. The guest house is very nice and in perfect location. Our room was cosy and very comfortable. Loved the little whiskey decanter!
The owners, Trevor and Jacqueline, were extremely hospitable and helpful throughout - from reservations, through arranged pickups, and by providing helpful advice as we were going through our "todo list", etc. And, of course - the breakfast. Delicious...
We will definitely come back!

We stayed at Brownlees Guest House during our first trip to Scotland and w couldn't have asked for better hosts or a better place to stay. The B&B was in a perfect location, walking distance to the old course and great restaurants and pubs. Rooms were very nice, breakfast was amazing, and Trevor and Jacqui made our time in Scotland so much more enjoyable. If I am ever lucky enough to visit Scotland again, I would definitely stay at Brownlees.

This was the highlight of our first trip to Scotland. The quality of the service was unmatched in town. Jaccqui and Trevor were unbelievable hosts. The breakfast was amazing. French press coffee. Home made jellies and jams. The eggs and bacon were to die for. The rooms and showers were beyond what we had expected. The location could not be any better unless you slep on the first tee at The Old Course. Trevor was gracious enough to lose at golf the last day of our trip. We are so glad Hidden Links set us up at Brownlees. I could not think of a better B and B to stay in St Andrews. Wonderful people, fantastic location, outstanding breakfast and great rooms. This place will always be #1 in my book.

Room Tip: all the rooms were fantastic

Booked this at the last minute and could not be happier. Room very cosy with some nice touches such as decanter of whisky. Breakfast was superb as was the homemade jam. Trevor even found me a space for the car....a godsend in St Andrews. Will be back again as its in a handy position for everything. Thanks again Trevor & Jacqui.

This bed and breakfast was wonderful. The owners were very nice and helpful. Good breakfast (even Trevor can cook -LOL). Very well kept and nice furnishings. Only one row off from the water and quick walk to St. Andrews. The only noisy thing was all the birds that started in as soon as there was light outside!

Room Tip: Note: there is no fitness centre. Once I hit it by mistake I couldn't remove my error. We had a...

The guest house itself is everything you need. Comfy rooms, good beds and great little touches such as a personal st Andrews themed 'library' in the room. But the aspect which puts Brownlees above the rest are the owners. Trevor and Jacqui made our stay easy and a lot of fun. Trevor's knowledge of Golf and the area was fantastic and his swing tips weren't bad either. Breakfast was excellent and the thermos of coffee was a lifesaver waiting in line at the old course at 2am. The complementary whisky in the room also helped us forget about more than 1 bad round on the course. Highly recommended b &b!
