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.

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...

Stayed here for one night as a part of our honeymoon tour of the UK. My husband is a Fairmont President's Club member and we always enjoy our Fairmont stays! The Fairmont Saint Andrews is especially nice and offers gorgeous views of the golf courses and the water beyond. We were also upgraded a room with a view and were... More

This hotel deserves it 5 star status. The location and hotel are lovely. Rooms are comfortable and spacious. The pool area is good. I know there have been some criticisms of the policy of having children in the pool at set times but I found this to be a good balance between needs of those with younger families and those... More

Improvements needed when it comes to the following: Room doors slam.. Forget about having a good night rest. It would be nice too if other guests could kindly be asked... More
