Five Pilmour Place was a lovely place to stay - it really felt like a home from home whilst we were staying in St Andrews. It's perfectly situated for the beach, golf courses and all tourist spots in the town centre (the castle, cathedral, etc). The staff were very welcoming and accommodating - not only did Norman happily provide us...

We stayed here for a few nights and found the location ideal...right next to the old course and not far from Market Street..and very close to the beach and ocean. The room was lovely with an updated decor and beautiful bathroom. One drawback for us was parking or lack thereof. It was difficult to get our luggage into the property...

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Unfortunately free parking is at a premium in St Andrews and especially during the day near to the golf courses and ourselves. You can however, as you managed to do, drive up outside front door/rear and drop off your luggage, then park. Either my husband or myself are...

Situated perfectly in the town, this is a great place to stay when visiting St. Andrews and surrounding area. Lots of restaurants in walking distance, the beach, castle, cathedral all within 15 minute walk. The breakfast is super, lovely fresh ingredients and smiling friendly staff. Will certainly stay here again in the very near future.

Very high end B&B at a great price and unbeatable location next to the The Royal and Ancient Golf Club. Norman was incredibly hospitable! He packed me a "to-go" breakfast as I was leaving in the middle of the night to wait and try my luck as a single on the Old Course and the breakfast and snack were great...

What a superb place! Jackie was an excellent hostess and the room was beyond expectation. Couldn't be a better location in the old town just round the corner from the 18th hole at The Old Course. Breaakfast was excellent. Can't speak highly enough of it and will definitely use again when returning to St Andrews
