Lovely Saturday night stay at 5 Pilmour, great location, beautiful room and fantastic breakfast. Jackie and her staff were most welcoming and altough we only stayed one night we would certainly return for a longer stay as it is in the perfect location whether for golf, beach or just visiting the wonderful town that is St andrews.

I have spent three wonderful nights here while visiting my granddaughter. The whole ambience is inviting, and the decor is fresh and tastefully appointed. Everything is spotless and Jackie and Norman go out of their way to make the stay comfortable. I've enjoyed my long chats with them both as well as my morning conversations with students assisting them. The... More

If you are planning a trip to St. Andrews, golfing or not, I highly recommend that you stay at Five Pilmour Place. The rooms are modern, clean and very comfortable, the breakfast is super and they are flexible to your morning schedule.

Small and comfortable room, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast fabulous. owners friendly and helpful. Situation good - near the Old Course, University and restaurants. Will return soon but book quickly as very small (but cosy).

Everything was top notch at this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. The accommodations were clean and modern, the breakfast was wonderful and tasty and the location was just down the street from the Old Course. We spent three days at this B&B and it was such a nice experience we would wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody staying in St Andrews.

There is really not much more to say than perfect! Me and my boyfriend really recomend this wonderful b&b. It was clean, looked beautiful, had good breakfast (gluten free) and lovely hosts. If we are ever going back to st.Andrews there is no doubt as to where we would want to stay!

Five Pilmour Place is, quite simply, a Scottish B&B paradise. Everything is sterling-perfect, from the full Scottish Breakfast, to the wonderful staff, to the bedrooms and bathrooms, to the location. Jackie was an amazing hostess, very flexible, even allowing us to leave our bags in the dining room for several hours after we checked out before heading back to Edinburgh.... More

Our hosts Jackie and Norman provided a haven for eight Antipodean golf nuts in St Andrews.

This is a wonderful B&B in a great location, within easy walking distance to everything in the town of St.Andrews. I agree with the comment that it is really more like a boutique hotel -- the furnishings are very contemporary and attractive. The rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean. We had the room in the back, off the pretty little... More
