Second visit stayed for 2 nights and took our dog. The staff make you feel very welcome and the overall ambience is relaxed with decent sized rooms overlooking the bay. We ate at the grill the first night, it's quite expensive, more so than in town for similar quality, but the views food and staff are all first class. We... More

Managed to get in to Fairmont for the Spa etc. Staying in Deveron House and we were allowed to use the facilities free of charge. We used the swimming pool, steam & sauna, all excellent. Staff were really friendly to. Would definitely like to return for a stay in this Hotel.

Beautiful hotel with awesome views....service and style as to be expected at any Fairmont property. Quiet, room was elegantly done and well appointed - just like any 4/5 star room would be. Bathroom was older (they are in the process of renovating all of them - believe they were half finished in July 2016). However, it was nice. Bathtub, separate... More

It is a nice hotel and the counter staff is friendly. Be aware that if you transfer in Amsterdam on your way, there is a good chance your luggage will be delayed. Of our 11 bags (including 3 golf clubs), 5 bags were "lost" for 2 days. I was told this is a common occurrence in the busy months.

Visited for a chill out night for my daughter and I after walking a lengthy stretch of the Fife Coastal Walk. Visited here many times but have become very disappointed with the standard of the rooms and the leisure facilities. The rooms I believe are being refurbished however we got one that was in need of refurbishment. The marble plinth... More

Although quite an expensive place we managed to get a great deal and treated ourselves to a spa day followed by afternoon tea as we were stressed with the run up to exams. I got a lovely relaxing massage which both started and finished in the relaxation lounge. So peaceful, lovely natural fruited water and biscuits. We also got full... More

The hotel was great. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was lovely and fresh. It was spacious for two people. Breakfast was included in the price and the choices were great. We enjoyed the whole experience.
