Great walks. Accommodation was fab, very clean and pLenny of room. Spa facilities well worth a visit although pool a bit cold. Hotel was busy at breakfast and had a queue which is surprising for a 5 star

my wife and I stayed last Saturday night on a DBB deal. This was our 3rd stay in this lovely hotel and we hope to return as soon as possible! You can't really fault it in any way other than its isolation, but that's not a bad thing really. The food, staff, room facilities were all excellent

The hotel entrance is grand as you drive off the main road and has a real sense of presence. The entrance is suitably lavish, without being OTT. The general feel of the hotel is North American with strong Scottish influences in the soft furnishings. If you look closely enough you will find the odd scuff mark here and there, but... More

Been here many times - still a beautiful hotel but this time we left a little disappointed - food in the Italian 'in house' restaurant not as good as previously and £30 for a rib eye, sauce etc was disappointing too. The smartly dressed, witty and chatty staff gone too - all seemed under pressure. I don't eat fish so... More

Reception is good and efficient and the rooms are roomy and comfortable enough but offer nothing above the ordinary. The spa lacks ambience is crowded, noisy and is not relaxing. The restaurant staff are overworked and the food is very poor. I ordered steak which was very chewy, I returned it and the "chef " sent back a message to... More

We stayed here for one night whilst attending a charity function at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews. The Fairmont has a beautiful lobby and the room we were allocated was fantastic.

I took my mum for a spa day in December as her Christmas treat. The welcome was promising but when we were ready to go in and relax it turned out that the jacuzzi pool wasn't working. No one had mentioned this to us when booking or when showing us around. When we asked, we were advised that it had... More

I was surprised by my boyfriend with a fabulous 2 night stay. The room had a lovely view out to sea. We ate in the hotel both nights and the food was very good. Live music was on (singer or pianist) which was very pleasant and gave a nice romantic feel to the evenings. The hotel was very busy when... More

We recently enjoyed an overnight DB&B stay. Check in was friendly and efficient. Room was a decent size with an exceptionally comfortable bed and a large bathroom with bath and a walk-in shower. Nice toiletries and bathrobes. Only the Italian restaurant was open for dinner - I suspect due to this being a quiet time of year. The food wasn't... More
