This is a return trip for us to the Fairmont Hotel and we were so impressed we brought our children this time ( age 7 and 10 years) This was a precious "time together" 2 night break and we thought the hotel would be perfect. On the surface on arrival you cant fail to be impressed the hotel sits in... More

We only stayed for one night but not sure if we'd hurry back. Have recently stayed at the true 5* Old Course and there's no comparison. On approach the Fairmont should and could be beautiful and imposing but it looked soulless and rather empty, hard to explain but it lacked the sense of grandeur that a bit of TLC could... More

Three day stay for 4 Adults and a 10yo. Welcome and reception excellent. Rooms very high standard with great views. Buffet breakfast was fine with all the Scottish fare available. Used the new Italian restaurant one night. It had recently opened and that showed in the service. Used the Squire restaurant for a larger dinner party on the Saturday night.... More

Could do with a new interior designer. Chairs in Atrium were impossible to get comfortable on and layout left a lot to be desired. An airport lounge has more atmosphere! Food was okay but nothing special. Breakfasts was a buffet but done on the cheap ... Very poor quality.

We spent an excellent couple of days at the Fair,not and would recommend it to other travellers, although we were very disappointed that the swimming pool was out of action on our visit and also having to pay for wifi seems a bit unnecessary nowadays

We booked this hotel to coincide with our 10th Wedding Anniversary - we were married at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in 2004. Check in was easy and we stayed in room 3044 which was a good sized room. The hotel had left us some chocolates and a note which was a nice touch. We had evening meal in the... More

It's not often I'm compelled to write a review, but this is worth it. I travel a lot (almost every week with work, throughout the world), so I have a lot of good and bad experiences to draw from. Work accomodation tends to be functional 4*, and accomodation for personal travel tends to be 5* luxury with Michelin restaurant where... More

Used a voucher for the Spa and phoned the Hotel direct and was offered a good deal to stay for Bed & Breakfast. Excellent service throughout, from checking in to the use of the spa and having breakfast the next morning to checking out. would definitely return

a couple of small service related issues ie waited 10 mins to be attended to at check-in and service at breakfast was a bit lax, but overall a very good experience. great quality food in the squire restaurant at reasonable set menu price.
