I have visited St Andrews several times and have stayed in different places. Brownlees is a lovely, well located and well run guesthouse in the center of town. Very flexible with arrangements as I was unsure if I would have a guest and also unsure of arrivals. When my departure was very early they very kindly made a pack lunch...

We stayed here for three nights while visiting the university. Trevor and Jackie were friendly and helpful throughout our stay, and the breakfasts were excellent. They have a house cat (not good if you have allergies I suppose) who is super friendly. The bed is quite comfortable and after spending over a week dealing with very snug continental showers, the...

The room was OK with a good supportive bed The not so good: Parking very difficult during the day (a central St Andrews problem) but no real parking problems at night: Trevor's expressed political views over breakfast; insufficient space at breakfast if...

We are sorry that did not enjoy your stay.Unfortunately we have no control over the parking issues in St. Andrews but usually we do not have any problem getting a free car parking space after 5.oopm as the workers leave for the day. The property is up for sale as we near retirement age but as far as the decor...

We stayed as a party of four in two very well appointed double rooms. It was a lovely, comfortable stay and the breakfasts were exceptional. The mini decanter of whisky in each room was a very welcome touch on a particularly bleak weekend at the end of November! We would definitely recommend Brownlees and will stay there again next time...

Brownlees is only a short walk to The Old Course and most restaurants in the town center. Trevor and Jackie are great hosts. The breakfasts are excellent and the rooms are comfortable. I had to get up at 3 am to get in the queue for The Old Course and made the short walk to the course in 5 minutes....

We were visiting Saint Andrews for a few days to play golf. We stayed at Brownlee's for 3 nights and loved everything about it. They are located only approximately 1/4 mile from the Old Course and within walking distance of the "downtown" area. Trevor and Jackie were wonderful and both could cook breakfast extremely well! Jackie even went out of...
