Stayed one night here for St. Andrews open day. Great central location beach and Old Course one side, town the other and free parking outside. Twin Room and bathroom small but perfect for our needs. Staff very helpful. Would definitely come again.

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... More

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... More

We stayed here on an overnight stay in St Andrews. Very comfortable b&b, great location within easy walking distance to all shops, restaurants, pubs and golf. Our room was clean and perfect for our stay. Good breakfast with plenty of choice.

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.

Recommend without reservation. Yufei is so welcoming. The rooms are spotless and comfortable with lovely touches such as dressing gowns and toiletries. Breakfast is good and a takeaway breakfast can be pre-ordered if you are out and about early. Great, central location with parking (if you are lucky).

It's a great spot in St. Andrews. It's near everything. The room was was very comfortable, clean and attractive. Our hostess was charming, knowledgeable, and helpful. We visited Scotland for the second time and would stay at the Doune House again. Jim & Ruth S.
