Castlemount is absolutely lovely. I was pleasantly surprised that our room was actually a suite with an extra bedroom (we didn't need the extra bed but it came in handy to open out our suitcases). There was a nice sitting area and a view of the garden. Breakfast was excellent, the view from the breakfast room was beautiful and the... More

I visited St Andrews University for a work trip and was recommended Castlemount B&B by one of the students whose parents had stayed there. Considering I would usually be put up in a Holiday Inn on work trips I was over the moon when I walked up to a quaint house encased in ivy, overlooking the castle ruins and out... More

I just returned from my 6th time staying at Castlemount, and each visit has been wonderful. The location is spectacular, Gerry and Linda Anne are so welcoming and warm, and the accommodations are very tasteful and comfortable. There is a large choice of items from breakfast, along with fruits, cereals, and cheeses available on a buffet. Kirstie, the cook (and... More

We have been to St Andrews many many times over the years, although we have not visited recently. We have stayed at various hotels and B&B's but our previous stay at Castlemount was undoubtedly, from all the B&B's we have stayed at, our favourite. You are always a little worried when you have not been somewhere for a while that... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in March. Booked last minute, & could not believe our luck to get such a nice place. The location is superb with beautiful views of the castle each morning at breakfast. The room we had was very spacious & beautiful decor. Breakfast outstanding with locally sourced products as much as possible. And Jerry &... More

We had a fantastic stay, rooms were very clean and lovely and warm. The bed was so comfy i did not want to leave it in the morning. The views from our room and the breakfast area were amazing, over looking the castle and sparkling sea. Breakfast was great, they even sourced gluten free products for me. The owners were... More

Having attended St Andrews uni, I know the town well, and stayed at Castlemount a few years ago. I came back up to St Andrews with my girlfriend, and chose to stay at Castlemount again. Jerry is a fascinating man, and made us feel extremely welcome. We stayed in the "Master's room", and the bed is one of the most... More

We had a wonderful stay at the weekend. The views are amazing and the hotel very comfortable. Best of all was the welcome by the lovely staff who gave us breakfast...even giving my son breakfast and he wasn't even staying there. I would definitely return.
