Truly a wonderful experience at the Castlemount. Jerry was a great host and very helpful in making suggestions for day trips. The breakfasts were outstanding. The eggs Benedict and pancakes were delicious, but Jerry's porridge with special Whiskey cream was exceptional. We stayed in the room right off the breakfast room. The view was spectacular, room was comfortable and the... More

We spent 6 wonderful nights at Castlemount, April 5th through 11th. Coming from the US, this was our first trip to Scotland and abroad. The owners and staff at Castlemount exceeded our expectation of hospitality. Linda was the sweetest and most accommodating hostess. This being our first time, we truly didn’t know what to expect. Linda and her staff, along... More

We've stayed at Castlemount B&B, just 2 nights ago and it turned out to be a perfect start of our tour around Scotland. We arrived on short notice and were warmly welcomed by Jerry himself, who gave us a tour around the establishment and some hints and tips for our stay in Saint Andrews. The green room, ground level, with... More

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
