Castlemount Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #26 of 73 St Andrews B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 April 2013

The Castlemount St. Andrews has everything you're looking for in your Scotland experience. Located at the shore of the sea overlooking the old castle it's your home in Scotland with comfortable rooms, delicious home made breakfast and hosts with a heart.

You'll be looked after and taken care - we've been visiting Castlemount for the second time and can't wait to return.

Stayed for 2 nights at the Castlemount over the weekend of the 15th/16th March. From arrival to departure the owners Jerry and Linda-Anne were excellent hosts .
We where on a University visit , and can honestly we will be using the Castlemount for future visits if our son goes to St Andrews.
We had a family room( the patio room) which where 2 ajoining rooms , the main being very large . Both beautifully decorated and cosy. Breakfast was fantastic , something for everyone . Cooked breakfasts , fresh fruit , home made pancakes and maple syrup.
Highly recommended.

Booked at random because it was convenient for a business trip to the University. However, from now on this is where I'll stay in St. Andrews, whether for work or a family holiday. Glorious location -- the breakfast room looks on the castle and the West Sands. Charming, welcoming owners. Comfy room and great breakfast. Superb!

Our room was tiny but since we spent our days touring the town, it was more than adequate. We had our own little bath and, again, it served us well. Breakfast was excellent -- better than the average US B&B, with a wide selection of cold and hot foods. The house is about 15 minutes' walk from the bus station and is not for the mobility-impaired, as the rooms are up one or two flights of stairs and there is no lift or bellman to help. Proprietors were friendly (even talkative) and pleasant. Definitely worth a return visit.

We had a wonderful stay at this charming B&B. The owners made us feel completely welcome from the minute we arrived and nothing was too much trouble; the level of personal service was truly exceptional. We stayed in the patio rooms; a large, comfortable double bed with adjoining single bedroom and bathroom. The bedrooms were spacious and tastefully decorated and the bathroom was very clean with plenty of fluffy towels. The highlight was surely the delicious breakfasts (try the pancakes!) in the top floor breakfast room, with superb sea views over the old castle. I cannot recommend Castlemount enough; we're looking forward to our next visit already.

I only have good words for our experience at this lovely B&B. I stayed there one night in October with my husband and four other friends. Everything about Castlemount is wonderful - the location (with beautiful views to the sea and castle), the house (beautiful and very warm), the bedrooms (cozy and quiet), the breakfast (amazing! Please try the pancakes!), and specially the hosts. Jerry is just wonderful - welcoming, friendly, helpful, he made us feel at home from the moment we walked through the door. I'm only sorry we could only stay one night, I would have stayed so much longer! I am already thinking about how to fit it in to a return visit to Scotland... in fact, I left there thinking that if I ever need some time to myself, Castlemount will be the place to go, without a doubt. If you're reading this, Jerry, kind regards from your guests from "all over Spain". Thank you very much for everything!

Would go again tomorrow if I had the time. We booked a twin room to stay in St Andrews for two days of golf. Castlemount was exactly what you'd hope a B&B in St Andrews would be - characterful, welcoming, warm, spacious, central yet quiet, great sea views and a host who went out of his way to help us feel at home. Just go....you won't be disappointed. p.s This is the first TripAdvisor comment I've ever been compelled enough to write!
