There are really no negatives with the Fairmont. We had a two night stay and had a lovely room, very comfortable. The service was all you would expect from a first class hote. The only restaurant in the hotel is Italian, there is another restaurant in the clubhouse along from the hotel (transport available). As the weather was very wet... More

Last minute weekend break to St. Andrews. Nice and relaxing environment, rooms were fantastic and very clean. Only 5 minutes in car to the town centre, although the hotel also had a shuttle bus. Lots of choice for breakfast. Only off-putting thing was that it was very busy the weekend we stayed. People were queuing to get a table, standing... More

When I originally booked it was quoted as "stunning sea / golf course views" however what our party got was less than stunning views of the car park with construction work in progress, the room was excellent and the breakfast was faultless.although the grill area could be better organised,i.e. when queuing why could you not ask what you would like...

Good night sleep in a lovely room with a good breakfast with plenty of staff on hand. Great High Tea too accommodating gluten free. Didn't use pool. The atrium area was a bit bland. Seemed like a soulless area, but renovations going on so hopefully this will be vastly improved. Hotel a bit outside town but they run an hourly... More

Spent 4 nights at the Fairmont and whilst it is 3 miles from the famous greens of the Old Course I would thoroughly recommend staying at this hotel - fantastically comfortable bedrooms, friendly service and the breakfast buffet was superb! Great place if you are visiting this historic town.

Beautiful room and bathroom. Staff very friendly and helpful as well as efficient. Food and service in restaurant excellent. All in all a great wee break and would return any time. Courtesy bus in to St Andrews every hour. Hotel has a lovely bar if inclement weather deters excursions elsewhere

Just back from a 2 night break at Fairmont and we had a lovely time. The room was lovely - a good size, clean and comfortable with a lovely view. The in-room refreshments are a bit limited as even a bottle of water is charged for - and the snacks and drinks in the room would all be very expensive... More

Service brilliant ,accomodation good but only restraraunt in hotel was Italian. Only bar just like being in a pub. Under going refurb but BIGGEST let down breakfast was cold especially the hot buffet breakfast. Five star prices but only three star in situ. Americans may like and pay the inflated prices but eventually all customers will want better for money.... More

This is still a very good hotel and feel it will be even better once all the renovations are done over the next 12 months a stage at a time. The atrium and the breakfast area there are looking a little tired now and will benefit from a redesign which is planned. Still a fantastic selection at breakfast though and... More

Enjoyed a wonderful relaxing time here. Bento box lunch with a prosecco made the day more special. Absolutely recommend visiting here. Welcome brilliant and nothing too much trouble from the initial enquiry to the day itself. Just magical!
