We have been to this hotel and enjoyed our stay so came back with a group of friends (couples) for a night away. The check in was fine, very friendly woman on reception. Room lovely, massive comfy bed. It was the service that let the place down later. It was pouring down outside so we decided not to go out... More

The location is ten minutes from the center of St. Andrews, elevated on a hill near the water with an amazing view of the town. Friendly staff greet you at the entrance, and make you feel welcome and comfortable right away. Consistent service with the Fairmont hotels, newer style building that appears more geared towards conferences compared to the Fairmonts... More

If your looking for luxury and open spaces, this is the best hotel in St. Andrews. Top class service, top class facilities and beautiful location. Only drawback might just be the distance from the town centre, but there's a shuttle bus from the Hotel to take you down. Yes it's is expensive, but on this occasion, you definitely get what... More

We stayed here for one night on Sun 24th Aug 2014. We booked the room and a round of golf direct with the hotel through their offers webpage. We played on the Torrence course and it was absolutely fantastic, the greens were immaculate and consistent and the views from the course overlooking St Andrews and the North Sea were incredible....

Everything was fantastic! The room was actually a junior suite - it was huge and so wonderfully decorated. The view was unbelievable. While we're not golfers we could appreciate the manicured course right outside. The breakfast was fantastic and had traditional Scottish food and so much more.

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Fairmount and as on previous occasions they never disappoint. Our rooms were spotless, the staff as always friendly, efficient and very welcoming as you would expect from a hotel of this standard, that's why we keep returning. Its a beautiful location, gorgeous views and the staff are what makes... More

Second time at this hotel and we only gave it a second try because our friends want to go there. Will not go back again unless we have no choice. Beautiful setting but once inside the hotel, it was disappointing. The average decor, and the average staff. Front desk staff were terrible. We asked for late check out and was... More

First of all, and we knew it, this is primarily a Golf resort hotel. The staff at the reception is excellent, the valet parking as well, Rooms are excellent, clean and sound proof. The Bar, where we ate twice, is noisy and a bit caotic, but food is good. We tired the Club House Restaurant one night but must say... More

My family of four spent a night here at the end of a week of golfing that included stays at Gleneagles and The Renaissance Club. This is no Gleneagles. The property is a monster situated on the seaside slopes about 5 miles east of St. Andrews. You are completely removed from the town and isolated from Scotland. We were warmly... More

The hotel is a little out of town but they have a free shuttle to St Andrews and back. The hotel itself is nice but the service at the bar was consistently bad. We ate at the bar twice and we very disappointed with the service both times. The grounds are lovely and the golf course is brilliant. Overall -... More
