This is a great spot in walking distance to the golf courses, bars and restaurants, tourist attractions and the university. Clean and comfortable rooms are well appointed with TV, bedside reading lights, spotless bathrooms. First floor lounge opposite the breakfast dining room; outside behind the building is a tiled patio with a pretty garden including chairs and table for casual... More

Centrally located and handy for the golf course so two points for that. It's very pokey. Rooms are tiny. Also very noisy - opposite what looks like some college flats so loud music until all hours. Maybe end of term? Not much choice at breakfast. All in all expensive for what you get - In hindsight I wish I'd spent... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate everyone's feedback from their stay with us. We do not promote ourselves as a "5*" facility, we are a boutique styled guest house and are highly commended for our facilities, our service etc. Our location is in the centre of St Andrews not in the quiet countryside outside town. We live alongside the... More

We had a fantastic stay at 5 Pilmour Place. Jackie and Norman were terrific hosts, the B&B is spotless, the room was spacious, the premises were outfitted to the highest standard and the breakfast was the best of our trip. Highly recommend this spot!

Thank you to Jackie and Norman at Five Pilmour Place for making our recent short stay so memorable. We thoroughly loved Room 7 in the garden, which was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. Being slightly remote from the main house made it extremely private and it was lovely to sit outside and have a drink in the garden. We were... More

Our family of four with adult children using two room played golf at St. Andrews and had a wonderful experience. Jackie made us a breakfast to go since we had an early tee, she is very gracious and a great hotelier. The rooms, # 3 & 6 were very clean, modern, tastefully redone and great, this is easily a 4-5...

We were completely delighted by Five Pilmour Place. I had done lots and lots of research, looking for an acceptable place to stay in St. Andrews--and I found it and then some. Being picky, I wanted a place that was cheery, clean, private, and with a good location. This fit the bill perfectly! We stayed in the detached room across... More

Thoroughly recommend this place. The location is ideal, service is great and the breakfast was amazing. The price is also very reasonable for such a great place. Spotless throughout and comfortable beds. Can't ask for more.

Recently 4 gentlemen from Ottawa Ontario Canada stayed here while playing golf around St. Andrews. We would ALL highly recommend this B and B for many reasons. 1)Proximity to St. Andrews golf courses...approx. a one minute walk out the beautiful rear garden to the first tee at the "Old Course".

We could not have found a better place in St. Andrews at any price! The location to the golf courses could not be better, and the business district is only two or three blocks away and other sight seeing is an easy walk. Jackie and Norman are a couple of the greatest people in the world and work a really... More
