Loved the bed, good cotton sheets, swimming pool was super and views are great. I think the hotel is a little too 'big american', but this is very personal. Staff was very friendly. The building is a little 'mall like' and according to me there should be put more nice atmosphere in the breakfast area.

Pulling up in high value vehicles; many owned and driven by very, very, rich men and women we were all blown away by the staff's manner and the opulence of this hotel. Not one person in this group of 30 plus had anything other than massive praise. Nothing was untoward, spotlessly clean, service impeccable, golf sorted at the drop of... More

I stayed @ the fairmont hotel between 19-21 August 2015, the issues I had while staying @ the hotel relate mainly to cleanliness. The room's walk in shower was moldy in the corners. The mirror above the room table was extremely dusty, and the carpet hadn't been properly hoovered. On the 2nd day of our stay, there was not power/electricity... More

Stayed here through Hotel Connexions booking on DBB. Loved it. Surroundings outside just great. Sea view fantastic. Great obviously for Golfers. Such a peaceful sleep, bed was great. Had a nice meal in The Italian and would certainly try The Clubhouse for a meal the next time. Service was really good throughout Hotel. Breakfast - spoiled for choice. Ran out... More

Visited at Easter for 3 nights. Having stayed before, we knew what to expect. On first entering room , we realised that it was a different style to the ones we had previous. I didn't like the layout of the room as the desk was positioned coming out from the wall into middle of floor. I This may be okay... More

Overnight stay at The Fairmont with my daughter and gransdons on holiday from the Middle East, they love St Andrews and it's a must each time they come home that we visit. Noisy room which was supposedly an upgrade never accept a room opposite an elevator, mouldy shower which smelt, lukewarm coffee, uncleared tables at breakfast certainly not a 5... More

The Fairmont is about 2 miles outside of St. Andrews, so I recommend a car. If you are a golfer great, if you are not, like me, also great. The views over the water and fairways are beautiful. The quiet of the hotel is perfect. There are nice walking paths around the property. The breakfast, which was included for us,... More

I was lucky enough to have afternoon tea at the Fairmont for my fiftieth birthday. We had great seating in the atrium, the sun even came out. My afternoon tea came with "Happy Birthday' written on the cake stand lovely touch. Our waiter Andy was brilliant, nothing too much trouble and he made our visit very special. The food was... More
