This is the second time I have stayed here and have found it good both times. Rooms clean, staff friendly and although I didn't have breakfast this time it smelt good! St Andrews is always busy so they can charge a little over the normal but this wasn't too bad. Wouldn't be good for old or disabled people as stairs...

Cozy BnB with friendly staff and excellent location for golfers and tourists alike. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the wifi was excellent, and the breakfast was the best I've had in Scotland! We will return here every time we stay in St. Andrews.

Booked here for a weekend in February. Really enjoyed stay. Service was happy and polite, room was big, and the bed HUGE and extremely comfortable. Big TV with loads of channels, free wi-fi, and the decor was quaint and classy. Good value for money. The only issue I had was that the room we stayed in (room 5), the door...

My husband and I have stayed at Doune House twice--once in May 2016, to visit our son at the University of St. Andrews, and again in November 2016, for his graduation. The location was perfect--within walking distance of much of the town. Rooms were comfortable and nicely decorated, with everything we needed for our stay. And I can't say enough...

We stayed here for 2 nights for the Dunhill Golf Championship. It is very close to the 1st tee and there is free parking within 30 yards. Very comfortable room with everything you would need. Small en-suite but adequate. Breakfast is selected the day before via a tick list including the time you want to eat within a 45 minute...

Perfect location to downtown and golf. Wonderful host, nice and pleasant accommodations. We stayed in September, played golf at The Eden course at St. Andrews and visited the pubs and restaurants downtown for some great food and music. Our host made sure we had a very early breakfast for our tee off time.

Quiet, clean and comfy guest room which was modern and recently remodeled. We stayed in Room 1 which was just big enough for 2 of us with luggage. The bathroom was small but modern and functional. The guest house is in a great location and I walked to the Old Course with my clubs in about 3 minutes. There are...

We had a lovely short stay at Doune Guest House, where the owners went out of their way to accommodate us and our wee dog. It was within walking distance to many amenities, including the beach, beautiful ruins, golf course and city centre. We'd certainly go back in the future.
