We decided to visit St Andrew's for a couple of days and wanted to stay somewhere really luxurious so we decided on the Fairmont hotel. The hotel is in a lovely location and sits a long way back from the main road and next to a golf course so there is no noise at all around the resort. We spent... More

This was the best hotel stay we have ever had anywhere. The staff and the hotel are great. It made our dream trip to St. Andrews all that we hoped it would be. I highly recommend this resort. Even if you don't golf.

This was a girly treat for myself and my daughter. We were lucky and arrived on Tuesday which was a beautiful day. We were greeted at the door by a lovely man and this was a good start to our wee break. The receptionist (male) I didn't get his name was really friendly. The staff at this hotel are all... More

Everything about our visit to Fairmont was wonderful. The rooms were perfect, the staff was friendly and helpful. On this trip we stayed at four different hotels and the Fairmont was by far the best. I will definitely stay at Fairmont Hotels in the future.

We had a lovely 6 night stay. The setting was gorgeous and the rooms comfortable. The shuttle to town was a plus along with such a helpful staff. They helped us rent a car for a few days and gave us tips on things to do and see. My husband enjoyed the golf right on the property and my daughter... More

Stayed here four night in July. Found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Shuttle service to and from town was timely and convenient, taxi ride back was reasonable. Concierge had very good restaurant recommendations in town. Note that many shops close at 16:00 so get your shopping done before dinner. Hotel spa service added to experience. Did not use... More

I read many of the reviews of the Fairmont before my trip and was concerned with some of the service concerns expressed. I found my concerns were unfounded. The staff from the front desk to the pub were fantastic. The rooms were modern and comfortable. The property was geourgous Scotish countryside with the links golf course view. The breakfast was...
