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...

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...

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!

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...

I recently traveled to St. Andrew's to fill my golf "Bucket List". While in St. Andrew's I had the pleasure of staying at Brownlee's Guest House run by Trevor and Jackie. With both of them being golf enthusiasts it was easy to make a connection and feel at home. They were both extremely welcoming and accommodating. The room was straightened/cleaned...

I was in St. Andrews for a conference for four nights and had a wonderful stay. The rooms had been recently remodeled, everything was clean and bright. The breakfasts were over the top, I was very sad I had to miss one for a breakfast meeting elsewhere. I could not recommend this property more highly!

We stayed at Brownlees B&B for two nights so that we could walk the Old Course. The location is excellent and we were able to leave the car in the car park and walk everywhere. Parking could be a bit of a problem as St Andrews is a very popular place to visit and the car park is fairly small....

We thought that visiting the cradle of Golf will be the high spot of our trip, but we were wrong. Just 5 min walk from the Old course,staying in the Brownlees made this trip unforgettable.

We spent a night at the in-town Brownlee's Guest House in golf-mad St. Andrews. It's golf centered for good reason... it's the birthplace of the game. The Old Course at St. Andrews is undoubtedly the most famous course in the world. Hundreds of elite golfers and their hacker counterparts flow into the city daily to experience the city's wonderful courses......
