This is bed and breakfast done perfectly. We were 8 golfers on a pilgrimage to St Andrews and Maria and Del gave us the hotel to oursleves despite the fact that it meant a little lost revenue for them. That consideration for us was reflected in everything else they did. Fantastic hosts; spotless and very comfortable accommodation; excellent breakfasts. It... More

We spent two nights at the guest house. Maria and Dell were wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful with sight and restaurant suggestions. The beds were comfortable and the room and bath were spotless. The house is in a quiet, yet central location, within walking distance of all the sights. The breakfast was wonderful and cooked to order. We highly recommend... More

Maria and Dell were the best of hosts, helping us contact friends in the area and directing us to excellent restaurants for dinner each evening. They made this trip with our friends so memorable that we are talking of returning soon. Ken and Kari Soldwedel

I stayed at Doune House with a friend to attend a wedding in St Andrews. The location was fantastic. 2 minutes walk to the main street and no more than 10 minute walk to even the furthest edge of town. The cinema is literally around the corner and all the bars and restaurants are only a couple of minutes walk.... More

Our best B&B experience. Wonderful hosts, location, rooms and food. We found this to be a perfect location for a golf experience at the old course, St. Andrews. Del and Marie gave excellent information and went out of their way to help in anything we needed. The rooms were beautifully appointed and spotless. We couldn't have wanted more. The location...

A wonderful B&B close to all interest points from the Medieval coast and University buildings to the Greens of St Andrews. Only a short walk. Delightfully appointed with a wonderful welcome from hosts Maria and Del. Would highly recommend.
