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

But was so impressed with the décor and size of the rooms absolutely lovely! It makes a change to have such up to date décor and I have stayed in 4 star... 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.

Very friendly staff in a beautiful location with views over the castle and out to sea. Easy flat walk around the town, everything within a 5 minute walk. Comfortable clean rooms with pretty decor. Breakfasts were delicious with a wide choice and great service - whiskey cream porridge particularly popular! Would definitely reccomend.

Had a couple of nights here, the location cannot be beaten, views to die for, 2 mins from the centre. Such friendly hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast were superb, you must try the porridge with whisky cream. Will certainly stay again, Jerry mentioned he was putting a set of decent golf clubs together for free hire if... More

Recently had the good fortune to spend another week at Castlemount. This was the second time we’ve stayed there, and it is as beautiful, charming, wonderful, and welcoming as I recall. First, the property itself is breathtaking; there is simply nothing like it in all of St. Andrews. Tourists stop to take photos of its lovely ivy-covered walls and abundant... More

I stayed with the amazingly interesting Jerrie and Linda-Ann last week for two nights. The castleview room was cosy, bright and had the most beautiful view overlooking the sea and castle. This was a proper B&B, full of warmth and soul. The staff couldn't do enough and I hope your lucky enough to have Kirsty the chef cook your breakfast!... More

Stayed for several nights on business, and loved the traditional cosiness of this place... The staff are just outstanding, very friendly and helpful! I had a bedroom at the front overlooking the castle and sea, it was fantastic to hear the waves crashing!
