Excellent hotel, located a couple of miles outside of St. Andrew's, so a shuttle or car is needed to get into town. The staff is extremely warm and welcoming. The facilities are wonderful and the two golf courses are spectacular. The golf staff is extremely helpful. They still charge for using their internet (which I am finding increasingly rare in...

Stayed for a few nights as a complete contrast to buisness in the Middle East. Perfect level of service, attentive without being obsequeous. The room was very clean, tasteful decor and a smart bathroom. The evening meals were spot on, but the part the family all raved about was the breakfast. I didn't really need any lunch both days. Will... More

It was lovely to return here after a gap of a few years to this outstanding hotel. The hotel is outside the town and has large grounds near the coast. It is pleasant to walk down to the clubhouse. The views are stunning and St Andrews can be seen in the distance. The room was large and clean , and... More

This hotel/ golf club is situated on a beautiful cliffside looking towards St Andrews and further up the coast making a spectacular sight at night. A surprisingly good value for St Andrews you will not be disappointed with anything here. From the spacious rooms and bathrooms with Kohler fixtures - ha, I know, but I was surprised they had them,... More

It's huge and the initial feeling was that of an airport atrium. You could never use the word "cosy" for any aspect of it! Check-in was efficient and very friendly and the room was lovely, apart from a broken coffee maker. The overwhelming feeling is that you're in the Americas and they could do with upping the Scottish content of... More

We booked a table for 4 at the clubhouse restaurant on Saturday 22nd September. The food and presentation at the club house restaurant was by far the best ever. This is our 2nd visit with friends and it has done us proud. The steak was cooked to perfection, and the whole meal experience us something which shouldn't be missed. I... More

Our experience of the Fairmont was wonderful and the best we have ever had in a Scottish hotel. We were there for a weekend to celebrate getting engaged and they treated us like royalty. There was just nothing to fault and the breakfast was superb, not least because we were made to wait ten minutes for a table and then... More

Stayed at the Fairmont on September 6th/7th, the hotel is excellent spotless as you would expect, the buffet style breakfast set up is great, everything you could ask for and top quality ingredients. Both the golf courses are excellent and I am surprised they don't get more of a rave review, played the Torrance first which was excellent condition just... More
