In a nut shell our stay was blighted by mainly the pool being cold the changing rooms cold, our food was terrible, room service cheesecake still frozen in the middle over priced and over cooked steak and a child plate that was so hot it would have burnt any ones fingers. Breakfast was the only bit they got right. We... More

We stayed for one night at Fairmont Hotel in St Andrews, a beautiful hotel with superb range of on-site facilities. Having access to the swimming until 8pm in the evening helped us keep our little boy entertained before dinner. We ordered food to the room twice and for each order there was an additional £3 delivery charge. I felt this... More

We stayed here for a special treat during a break in Fife. Everything about the hotel and grounds said "luxury", from the moment we entered the resort and drove through the grounds. Check in was friendly and efficient, and we were asked if we'd like to dine - but given the opportunity to consult a menu and let reception know... More

From the moment we arrived at this hotel we knew we were going to enjoy our stay. The service we received from walking through the door to leaving the next day was outstanding. Staff were extremely professional and welcoming. We stayed in a deluxe double room with a sea view which was a good sized room with a very large... More

Beautiful hotel in beautiful location. Palatial public areas and beautiful rooms. Good service from all staff. We had a very relaxing short winter break at the Fairmont St. Andrews. You would, however, need a car as the town itself is several miles away. Only downside was that one bar was closed at the time so that we had to eat... More
