Lovely rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast was buffet style, with everything you could want including haggis and smoked haddock as well as the usual cooked breakfast, fruit, yoghurt and cereals. There was an egg station for freshly cooked eggs, omelettes and scotch pancakes. It's a drive to St Andrews, but lovely sea views from the hotel itself. The swimming pool... More

We love this hotel - it's not cheap during August but worth it. Our room was a suite and it was fabulous! We ate in the Italian restaurant within the hotel itself and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Breakfast was fantastic - so fresh and so much choice. St Andrews itself is just beautiful and we had two days of sunshine... More

Great stay, beautiful location and attentive staff. My only suggestion would be that the rooms need a little TLC We also heard the valet service mocking my partner who asked for his car to be parked so it wouldn't be clipped by opening doors. Not a big deal Definitely return in the winter

Stayed for my sisters birthday weekend, all the staff were so helpful and a birthday card & choclates were placed in the room giving it such a personal feel. Food at La Cucina was outstanding. Could not fault anything. Can't wait for the next stay.

The Fairmont is an imposing hotel situated with stunning views out to sea. Extremely well appointed with a fabulous main hall. Unfortunately the bar staff seem to feel a sense of 5star entitlement and do little to provide a 5star experience. I was twice offered a £7 drink in plastic cups, as they were running out of glasses. Quite frankly... More

Excellent rooms, service, and hotel. The hotel was a little far from St Andrews and the shuttle service was only on the hour and ended at 520, which was a little early. I walked the Fife Coastal Pathway from the hotel to St Andrews it was an amazing walk and easy access from the hotel.

Lovely hotel in lovely setting. Beautiful views. Bar meals in Kittock's Den better than La Cucina restaurant. Worth it to pay for room with view. The courtesy minibus into St Andrews is very helpful. The golf is a bit pricey.

My first TripAdvisor review goes to this hotel. 5 stars. Stayed two nights with my family for a relaxing break away from hectic day to day life. Everything about the hotel is perfect. We were looking for a hotel where we didn't have to stay in the room passing the time. Rooms very modern. Our room had an amazing view... More

This is our fourth time back at Fairmont St Andrews after always had amazing stays in the past. My wife and I checked in on Mon for a 2 nights short getaway. We had booked the Fairmont room but we were upgraded to the junior suite, which recently had their toilet refurbished. Needless to say we were impressed with everything... More

All i can say this is one of the best short stays i have ever had, the staff and i mean all of them, from the door person, to the team serving breakfast were excellent. It was worth every penny, the Torrance golf course was excellent as well as the Spa facilities. I left the place feeling happy to pay... More
