Very friendly service, right in the middle of St Andrews with a free dram when you arrive!. Within walking distance of the golf courses and restaurants. Good breakfast. Car parking facilities outside the front door.

4 golf friends spent 5 nights in this excellent guest house. The location is perfect, the owners are very friendly and service minded. Rooms are nice and clean and the tasteful breakfast is an excellent start before a round on a golf course. Highly recommended!

Located steps from the Old Course and from the main shopping and dining area with free parking right outside, Brownlees looked ideal and lived up to expectations. Trevor and Jackie were impeccable hosts who offered us the use of foul weather gear for our rainy golf days and served us delicious breakfasts every morning. Pepsi the cat gave us lots...

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...

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...
