Fabulous stay in this beautiful hotel. We were so lucky to get lovely weather to benefit from the great setting of this hotel. Golf course was exceptional and the friendly staff made our stay so pleasant. We dined in La Cucina and the food and service were brilliant. Can’t wait to return some day!

We had an amazing dinner at the steak an Seafood restaurant. What made it so special was the service that was provided by our server Ms Aheelyn. She was so professional and so attentive. She was very well-versed on the preparations of the food as well as the wine list. So far it was the best meal and service we’ve had in all of Scotland. Make sure to ask for our server when you come to the restaurant. She will take amazing care of you

Excellent hotel, slightly let down by some niggles that are not expected at this price point Room was spacious and well fitted out. Staff were courteous and friendly. Public areas are very comfortable with numerous couches and seats . Service however in the bar was very slow at times and the pillows in the room were soft and unsupportive. Music in the atrium was very loud and did not encourage sitting to read or relax . Vegetarian options at breakfast were more limited than expected.

We’ve just returned from a lovely golf break at the Fairmont. From the moment we checked in and until we left the staff were friendly and very helpful. In particular we want to praise Veronika and Tomasz in the golf grill restaurant who provided excellent service. Also Richard (concierge) who entertained us whilst getting us to the grill to avoid the wind and rain! We highly recommend this hotel and the golf and most surely we will be returning, thank you all
