Overall our stay at 5 Pilmour Place was great. The decor is beautiful - lovely pictures, statues, ornaments, fabrics, wall paper etc. It seems to have been well thought out and chosen carefully. Although we didn't look in all the rooms, but from the website it is clear they are all decorated individually.
My husband described the breakfast as 'one of the best he'd ever tasted'. Obviously the ingredients are well sourced and cooked. There is also plenty of choice if you don't fancy a cooked 'Scottish' breakfast. The waitress at breakfast was very pleasant and chatty.
Personally I couldn't bring myself to score it 5/5 - the price was more than what we would usually pay for a B & B - we were late booking a room in St Andrews and so couldn't be picky about the price. However, I appreciate it is not a cheap town to stay and the price is probably increased due to the proximity to the golf course (although we are not golfers so therefore it wasn't a massive plus). Our bathroom (room 2) was absolutely tiny - I was 3 1/2 months pregnant at the time and glad I wasn't any further on as I would have struggled to get out of the shower.
However it is a beautiful place and we couldn't fault the staff in any way at all ... perhaps I am just a bit stingey with my money!!More
