Stayed with my husband, mother and two children. We had two good sized rooms which were beautiful but furnished in a way that didn't really reflect proximity to such a historic town. Standard Fairmont. Breakfast very good with attentive service. Taxis into St Andrews were overpriced. Wonderful run around the golf course early the next morning. The interior does feel... More

This was our second stay at the Fairmont and I have got to say it would be hard to beat. This was a revisit for our Anniversary and because this was where we honeymooned. We were upgraded on arrival thanks to lovely Mauireen and had a beautiful room with everything you could possibly need plus a lovely card and chocolates.... More

Had a lovely stay at the Fairmont, St Andrews last month. The rooms are clean and spacious and give a nice "homey" feel so if you're staying for a while, you don't begin feeling claustrophobic. It is located about 10 minutes drive from the town centre and is roughly £8 - £10 taxi ride for a single trip total. The... More

Great location, venue and staff. You really feel the staff look after you and strive to do all they can for you during your stay. The views from the hotel are great and a walk along the coast in the morning blows any cobwebs away. The change to Italian as one of the restaurants was a real bonus and as... More

Stayed here for two nights bed and breakfast booked through Hotel Connexions so got it half price. It's a lovely hotel and the rooms are of a very high standard as are the staff however there is no way I would have payed the full hotel price. The breakfast was self service and was excellent with a huge choice to... More

Spent two glorious days at Fairmont St. Andrews in late April. Staff from doorman to bell man to receptionist and concierge all very eager to please and enormously helpful. King room was perfect with lovely bath including large soaking tub. Immaculately clean. Grounds were gorgeous. We ate one lunch at the Clubhouse overlooking the ocean, one dinner in the tavern...

Stayed here for our anniversary got a room overlooking the sea and golf courses. Room was large and very well appointed with a huge bathroom. I found the bed a little soft and the pillow too deep but I am sure if I asked I could have gotten a thinner one. From the minute we drew up, the staff made... More

Great Hotel. Good value for the money and a very good breakfast buffet that was included. Service was excellent. Facilities were very good. Only issue is it is about 10 minutes from downtown St Andrews, they have a shuttle to drop you off which is great but it would have been nice to walk out the front door and be... More
