“Great location but the house leaves a lot to be desired”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We rented the house for the graduation of our son and invited some family members to share the experience. The location of the house could not be better for this occasion, but the interior was disappointing. The photos you see on the web show the nice part, which is upstairs, but the rooms downstairs are not nice at all. This is partly due to the fact that most windows do not open (and dirt falls out when you try), so the air is humid, stale and muggy (an air freshener does not help!). One of the rooms is very small. In the two bathrooms upstairs , the shower hoses had more holes than the head... The house can sleep ten people but the tables in the kitchen and upstairs only seat eight! The sitting area outside was full of weed and the garbage bins had not been emptied, so it looked like a mess. The house is full of cupboards, especially in the kitchen, but most of them are empty. Cooking for ten is very difficult due the lack of appropriate pans etc. Worst of all and not at all acceptable was the lack of a coffee machine! This was our fourth rental in St. Andrews and the first in all our rentals which did not provide something to make a decent coffee. For comparison, we already had Nespresso machines + capsules in houses which cost half the price... Decoration-wise, do not expect anything. We bought flowers and there was not even a vase... We had a short-circuit once and luckily it does not get dark outside at this time of the year, because there is no torch, no candles to help you find your way... So our advice to the owner and the managers, improve the property and make the visitors (10!!!)) feel welcome!

“No better place for a foursome visiting the Old.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Great location and great facilities. We stayed here with four couples and four golf bags. We each had our own place within a completely equipped facility (except towels for which a hefty charge applies).

The wifi was weak. It did not reach the nice, undersold patio. Bring converters from 220 to 110. The appliances are all brand name, and the beds were all comfy.

“Fantastic accommodation for a large group or family looking to visit St Andrews”

I recently visited St Andrews with a group of 9 friends. We stayed at East Castlemount on the recommendation of a friend living in the area. All of us were amazed at the quality of the accommodation upon arrival given the reasonable price.

The house it situated on the historic scores with great views out over the bay and beyond. The town centre is within 5 minutes walk and the golf courses are 10 minutes away which made getting around extremely easy and hassle free.

The house itself is extremely spacious and finished to a great quality. All bedrooms are large are there were numerous bathrooms meaning there were no issues with getting showered in the morning despite there being so many of us. The living and kitchen facilities were also fantastic and perfect for relaxing in between golf and heading into town for drinks or dinner.

All in all we had a great week and if I was to return I would most definitely stay here again
