Fair by definition is neither excellent nor poor; moderately or tolerably good. It is apt that this is the first 4 letters of the Company's name. I will start with the positives. Arrived at the hotel, and used the valet parking, was a great service and the member of staff we met was pleasant. Checked in at the presidents desk,... More

My husband - being the independent type - wanted to drop me at the front door and park the car. We're used to city centre hotels in Glasgow where this seems to be the norm! The bells boys were genuinely shocked to see me struggling to put our luggage on a trolley and promptly apologised and took over. From that... More

The staff is very helpful in printing out driving directions and storing clubs etc. if you want to spa make apts early as it is very popular. The resort also has... More

Staff exceptionally welcoming, helpful and very attentive. The suite we stayed in was very spacious with a beautiful sea view and over looking the golf course. The colour scheme was warm & welcoming, the bed sheets were soft as silk and bed exceptionally comfortable, although very high! The noise in hotel was minimal despite it being busy.

Not cheap at over £200 per night on a Monday and Tuesday, although we were attracted by the location and facilities on offer....i.e. Pool, spa, etc. have to say though that £45 for an express spa treatment seemed to me to be a bit...

I went to St. Andrews in June with my boyfriend, the weather was not too great but when we got to the hotel the atmosphere was nice and cozy. We got a complimentary upgrade (I work for Fairmont hotels as well, maybe that's why) which we were very appreciative of, however, we found the room too big for 2 guests... More

The rooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean. We used the pool facilities too which where just as good. Staff could not have been more helpful. The breakfasts where superb. Everything you could think of was available. Top marks 10 out of 10!
