How to ruin a 5 year old's holiday. Tell her to get out of the pool because it's 6.10pm and children aren't allowed after 6pm. There were 8 people in the pool and 6 of them (3 parents, 3 children) were told to get out by a very officious spa member because of this new rule. My daughter was distraught... More

Thank you for your feedback following your stay at Fairmont St Andrew. At Fairmont, we endeavour to satisfy all tastes and meet the needs of individual requirements. However, we are occasionally faced with competing demands. Overwhelming feedback from guests expresses a strong desire to have an ‘adults only’ bar area after 6pm. Other families express the need to have children... More

Had a 2 night stay here on 16th and 17th February, room was spacious with great sea view. Room was not ready when we arrived but was given complimentary coffee (althouigh that took 20 minutes to make, guess they were grinding the beans by hand!). Evening meals in the Clubhouse and Esperante restaurants were superb. Unfortunately breakfast was a huge... More

Stayed in a lovely room on the 2nd floor. Large room with 2 double beds and pleasant bathroom with separate bath and shower. Did appreciate instructions on how to use the shower, as too often in hotels it takes 10 minutes to work out exactly how these things work. Arrived at 4pm to a lengthy check-in queue and only one...

We stayed for 4 days and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Service was impeccable, and the rooms were well appointed with a superb view of the Forth. It is a fair ways out of the town, and having a car would be a great help. The staff are super and very professional, and very helpful in every way. Will come back.

Stayed here whilst visiting Scotland, the room was very spacious and well presented (however the bathroom bins were not clean). Overall, a good stay and would not hesitate to stay here again. Beautiful location and staff were very professional. Well worth the stay.

This was my 6th time back at the Fairmont and I did not leave disappointed.

We stayed here over the weekend for 2 nights, beautiful location, beautiful hotel. Staff very professional and attentive, always on hand to offer advice etc. Makes a pleasant change when the waiting staff in the bar ask about your stay and engage you in conversation.
