I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions whilst watching the European Seniors and just returned again from a three nights stay. The hotel grounds are very nice and the view across the Bay is wonderful. The reception staff are helpful and pleasant and the rooms are very comfortable which you would expect from a five star...

We were given a deal voucher from my children for an overnight in a twin/double deluxe room with sea view for our wedding anniversary. When I phoned to make the reservation I was initially told that they could give us a studio but they did not have a deluxe double room with sea view available. I asked if the studio...

The bedroom was lovely with great sea views. The main seating area down stairs in the huge lounge lacks warmth and ambience. Breakfast was okay but rather cool due to the air conditioning. The spa area, pool, again is okay not too big which surprised us due to the size of the hotel, but it was well used by other...

St Andrew's Fairmont was a great experience. Courses are spectacular however The Torrance Course is walk only. Hotel rooms were nice and big and the staff was very helpful. Location is only about a 5 minute cab ride to downtown area.

If I were visiting St Andrews this would always be my first choice. I must have a pool and gym, also a view is preferred.

Staff at reception were welcoming when we arrived and the room was fairly nice but I'm afraid it was all downhill after that We went for a drink in the bar and ordered a cocktail which was good but service was so slow. We then walked down to the clubhouse for another drink. This is in a stunning location and...

We enjoyed a one night stay with the family at The Fairmont Hotel. The service was very good, the rooms excellent. We had dinner at La Cucina, the Italian restaurant in the hotel, and it was ok but without waw-factor. The surroundings are stunning!

Just back from a lovely night in the Fairmont. The room facilities, spa, food and staff were all excellent. My only negative, and prevented me from giving the hotel 5 stars, is that there was a vent next to the door which constantly hums. This meant I did not get the best nights sleep as it was loud. Other than...
