We booked a table for 4 at the clubhouse restaurant on Saturday 22nd September. The food and presentation at the club house restaurant was by far the best ever. This is our 2nd visit with friends and it has done us proud. The steak was cooked to perfection, and the whole meal experience us something which shouldn't be missed. I... More

Our experience of the Fairmont was wonderful and the best we have ever had in a Scottish hotel. We were there for a weekend to celebrate getting engaged and they treated us like royalty. There was just nothing to fault and the breakfast was superb, not least because we were made to wait ten minutes for a table and then... More

Recently stayed at the Fairmont with my girlfriend and as it was a dog friendly hotel my Lab also. Booked a suite, and the dog package. Check in was very efficient, and staff extremely polite, a given regarding where you are staying. Suite was stunning plenty of room for the dog to pad about and enough room for me to... More

Stayed at the Fairmont on September 6th/7th, the hotel is excellent spotless as you would expect, the buffet style breakfast set up is great, everything you could ask for and top quality ingredients. Both the golf courses are excellent and I am surprised they don't get more of a rave review, played the Torrance first which was excellent condition just... More

I have stayed at The Fairmont on a number of occasions both on business and for leisure (golf). My most recent experience was for a business dinner and overnight stay. The first thing that strikes you about the Fairmont are the views - stunning views over St Andrews from its vantage point. The second are the staff - from the... More

Have just returned from two nights at the Fairmont Hotel and have to say I feel it did not live up to the five star's that it has been given. We were in room 2091 which was lovely and the bathroom one of the best we have had but I was kept awake most of the night by some sort... More

I have read some of the negative reviews, & quite frankly, I simply don't recognise this as the hotel where my wife & I have just spent 2 wonderful days. The greatest asset of this hotel is the staff - incredibly friendly and welcoming and for whom nothing is ever too much trouble. We live in North Yorkshire, so this... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Rooms are big and comfortable. Bathroom is also pretty big but looks very worn down. The shower looks dirty, it had the feel of a 3 star hotel and not a fairmont, they can definitely upgrade that part of the room. The carpet in the rooms looks a bit dirty as well. TV was nothing...
