Generally very good indeed. A couple of issues. The spa was closed on the second day of our stay and maintenance was already in progress when we did use the pool on our first evening despite the fact we specifically asked about the availability when we booked. First hotel we've been to in a few years where they charge for... More

Super rooms, super bar, super golf, super hotel! Loved my stay here, relaxing, peaceful and very hospitable staff and locals. The nightlife in St Andrews is also fun and recommend a few drams there during your stay. Taxi ride in and out is very cheap.

My friends and I met a number of Fridays ago for a day of relaxation at the Fairmont Spa. Unfortunately it was not relaxing and we will not be returning. We were telephoned 2 days prior to arrival to be told that the jacuzzi was not working. We could not change the day as we had all taken days off... More

As part of a little tour I wanted to sneak in before my settling into Scotland, I chose to stay at the Fairmont St Andrews to experience the beautiful landscapes and golf atmosphere that put St Andrews on the map. LOCATION: The hotel is located a few short miles outside St Andrews itself with its gorgeous ruins, about an hour... More

We stayed on Sunday 7th December and we had a great, relaxing and comfortable stay. Both concierge staff and reception staff were friendly and welcoming. Our deluxe sea view room was spacious and had lovely views. I'd joined the Fairmont Presidents club before we arrived, which entitles you to free wifi. The hotel wasn't busy that night,which made our stay... More

Arrived for afternoon tea - what a let down.. from the badly dressed, apathetic staff most of whom never smiled at any point during our two hour visit to the stale, cakes that looked as tho they have been in a fridge for a week, a poor show DEFINITELY NOT 5 STAR.. The two gentlemen on the door gave us... More

My wife and I enjoyed a stay at the Fairmont for her work party and had a great stay. The rooms and spaces were clean, the function suite was good, the food provided was excellent considering it was large scale catering. Something though felt lacking for me, some personality perhaps? Perhaps the unneccessarily large atrium which somehow seems a waste... More

Fabulous hotel. Feel they have got the balance just right here. Very warm Scottish welcomes on arrival. Sense of real Scottish hospitality. Lucky enough to see a piper lead an event to dinner. We took our 2 dogs and they were greeted with their own beds and bowls which was a nice touch. They were warmly received and made a... More

Thought the room was excellent. Only one restaurant in use while there but no mention of that when booking and certainly no reduction in price. Steak chips and half a tomato £29 which I felt was exorbitant. Shortly after booking, the hotel was advertised on Amazon Local at a better price and for a more expensive room. The location of...
