Been here many times - still a beautiful hotel but this time we left a little disappointed - food in the Italian 'in house' restaurant not as good as previously and £30 for a rib eye, sauce etc was disappointing too. The smartly dressed, witty and chatty staff gone too - all seemed under pressure. I don't eat fish so... More

Reception is good and efficient and the rooms are roomy and comfortable enough but offer nothing above the ordinary. The spa lacks ambience is crowded, noisy and is not relaxing. The restaurant staff are overworked and the food is very poor. I ordered steak which was very chewy, I returned it and the "chef " sent back a message to... More

This is really nice hotel in a great setting and makes you feel special. The staff are friendly and efficient. The rooms are very comfortable and spotless. The bed is amazing as is the bathroom. Places to eat selection for dinner is a little disappointing. We ate at the Italian restaurant and I must say a we were let down... More

We stayed here for one night whilst attending a charity function at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews. The Fairmont has a beautiful lobby and the room we were allocated was fantastic. The staff were excellent although there was an air of chaos at reception when lots of different parties were trying to book cabs all at the same... More

I took my mum for a spa day in December as her Christmas treat. The welcome was promising but when we were ready to go in and relax it turned out that the jacuzzi pool wasn't working. No one had mentioned this to us when booking or when showing us around. When we asked, we were advised that it had... More

I was surprised by my boyfriend with a fabulous 2 night stay. The room had a lovely view out to sea. We ate in the hotel both nights and the food was very good. Live music was on (singer or pianist) which was very pleasant and gave a nice romantic feel to the evenings. The hotel was very busy when... More

We recently enjoyed an overnight DB&B stay. Check in was friendly and efficient. Room was a decent size with an exceptionally comfortable bed and a large bathroom with bath and a walk-in shower. Nice toiletries and bathrobes. Only the Italian restaurant was open for dinner - I suspect due to this being a quiet time of year. The food wasn't... More

Stayed here a few times. Favourite hotel in St Andrews. Nice room and good food. Excellent staff who are keen to please. Leisure facilities ideal. However, always room for improvement. I think hotels of this standard really should have free wifi access. Come on Fairmont.

Excellent DBB stay at lovely Hotel with fantastic position overlooking view to St Andrews. Lovely pool and different bars and restaurants. Plenty of sitting areas, also lovely grounds and of course weather permitting there is the Golf course and lovely Clubhouse with fantastic views at cliffs out to sea.

We had a great stay at the Fairmont celebrating my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. The whole family went for a night and had a lovely meal. The staff were friendly and the spa was lovely! The rooms had great views over the golf course and coast. We will certainly return in the future!
