Beautiful hotel and facilities. Standard family room is disappointing though. Two double beds which quite frankly are too small!!! So sleep quality wasn't great. I would not recommend a standard family room to a family of four.

This is a great hotel - starts with a very warm welcome from Davie the Concierge then continues with very friendy staff and a super hotel environment, especially our room. Really nice atmosphere and food in La Cocina and the Squire Restaurants, and looked after by very nice restaurant teams. The breakfast is great with a huge choice, especially the... More

While travelling through the UK my wife found a great deal for the Fairmont St.Andrews and this place is special. Great rooms, fantastic service and an outstanding location. If only they could manage the weather! Please, go there.

Had a last minute overnight stay at the Fairmont and we were delighted. Friendly service upon arrival and a free room upgrade certainly helped. The room was very nice and spacious. Spent the afternoon relaxing in the spa facilities which were nice. Booked in to La Cucina, meal was delicious and service was very prompt (to the point we were... More

Stayed at this hotel for my partners 50th birthday, it had been recommended to us. Must say upon arrival at reception was quite taken aback to find 4 dogs, just a tad smaller than a small horse in reception, maybe OK if your a dog lover, but when the dogs went the dog smell remained. We were allocated a deluxe... More

We stayed here during the tournament and found the rooms, service and facilities at the hotel excellent. The location with the views over St Andrews were stunning. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting St Andrews who was looking for that "something special"

The hotel was lovely, room very nice. Service absolutely shocking. In the bar we were told it was table service but had to go up to the bar three times to ask for service. Made a reservation at the Squire Restaurant and waiting 1 hour for our starter and another hour for our main course. Had to ask for water... More

We recently stayed at the Fairmont St Andrews for a birthday treat and we were excited about our stay at the hotel. We were greeted by an amusing and friendly concierge but then things started to go downhill. The reception staff were not particularly friendly and we found the decor in the bar area quite tired looking. In fact the... More
