Its our first time at the Fairmont in st andrews. The hotel general public areas and rooms were something we expected from the Fairmont. It was pleasant. Had a round of golf which was enjoyable. We paid £70 for the green fees and £50 for titliest clubs which are in great condition. If you are flexible with your time green...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 weeks ago

This is a cautionary tale but Scout's honour, in no way it detracts from the very special experience which is the Fairmont... The bedroom was wonderful, there's no other word, and the bathroom attractive enough to live in. As every holidaymaker or traveller knows, it's the staff - from the doorman and receptionists, to the waiters, the chefs of course,...

We were at the clubhouse for lunch, this is away from the main building. Lovely views. Lunch was tomato soup, so tasty and fish and chips for myself. My grandson had the fishcake starter and main course of chicken caeser salad. Washed meals down with a bottle of cider each. Bill came to £52. Not a place I could afford...

Stayed here during our golfing trip to St Andrews. The hotel is an imposing structure and the rooms are extremely well appointed. The staff are courteous and helpful. The breakfast is a large spread and is not to be missed. Also worthwhile is an evening meal at the Fairmont Club house on the edge of the waters, outside the main...

Decided on an cheeky wee one nighter at the last moment, and having not been at this hotel in about 10 years decided to see what was different. Well we were not disappointed. We upgraded to a natter room for additional £40 on arrival which was worth it for the view as we were out over the golf course towards...

My wife and I had a magnificent time at the Fairmont. The location is perfect - three minute drive to the town of St. Andrews, or a pleasant 15 minute walk. Our standard room was excellent in all respects - large, plenty of luggage space, supremely comfortable bed with high end linens, wi-fi that worked and a terrific coffeemaker. The...

Attended a family wedding at this hotel. It is an amazing, well refined spectacular hotel. If you are ever in this part of Scotland it is well worth if a visit. We stayed at nearby hotel as it was fully booked for the dates we wanted but are planning another trip this year and will book in advance.
