I stayed for three nights in July and found it to be super clean, freshly decorated and quiet. Doune house is very central and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of St Andrews- very convenient. The breakfast room is light and welcoming and breakfast is fantastic (great choice including delicious fruit salad and cooked breakfast).I was delayed on...

To simply rave about the comfort and cleanliness of the Doune House, or to praise the generous breakfast offerings, would be to tell only one part of the story. The best part of the Doune house: Maria and Dell. They are not only friendly, but they down-rght spoil their quests. Funny and witty, they make everyone feel special, offer great...

This is bed and breakfast done perfectly. We were 8 golfers on a pilgrimage to St Andrews and Maria and Del gave us the hotel to oursleves despite the fact that it meant a little lost revenue for them. That consideration for us was reflected in everything else they did. Fantastic hosts; spotless and very comfortable accommodation; excellent breakfasts. It...

We spent two nights at the guest house. Maria and Dell were wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful with sight and restaurant suggestions. The beds were comfortable and the room and bath were spotless. The house is in a quiet, yet central location, within walking distance of all the sights. The breakfast was wonderful and cooked to order. We highly recommend...

Maria and Dell were the best of hosts, helping us contact friends in the area and directing us to excellent restaurants for dinner each evening. They made this trip with our friends so memorable that we are talking of returning soon. Ken and Kari Soldwedel

I stayed at Doune House with a friend to attend a wedding in St Andrews. The location was fantastic. 2 minutes walk to the main street and no more than 10 minute walk to even the furthest edge of town. The cinema is literally around the corner and all the bars and restaurants are only a couple of minutes walk....
