This is one of my most favorite places. The location is superb, ten minutes from the town centre( free hotel bus service). The hotel is beautiful and there are several places to eat in the hotel itself. The rooms are spacious, lovely bathrooms and comfortable beds. The pool is lovely and a good size. As a seasoned traveller this is...

Stayed as part of a 3 night Hogmanay package. Meet and greet was great - very friendly staff there. Check in painless. Stayed in deluxe sea view room. Spacious enough, although we were unsure if our room had been refurbished as bathroom didn't look terribly modern. More hangers in wardrobe would have been appreciated as not nearly enough for 3...

Seven of us stayed at the Fairmont St Andrews for three nights over Christmas. The hotel is great and in a brilliant location overlooking St Andrews. Our only complaint (and it is a big one) was the Christmas dinner at £87 per head. This didn't include any alcohol. The roast turkey was fine but a lot of the traditional trimmings...

I have been at this hotel nearly ever year since it opened and it never disappoints. With girl friends, hubby, group of friends and with kids we enjoy it every time. It is one of the most relaxing hotels I have stayed it. The grounds and hotel/facilities are just fab and there is so much to do. The town of...

Decided to go for a drive from Glasgow to St. Andrews and stopped at Fairmont's for lunch with my wife. Having been and stayed at this hotel numerous times we thought we knew what to expect. Sadly we were mistaken. The lunch menu at the bar was very basic. My wife had the burger (plain) with fries and a very...

Very disappointed with the service our group of four plus baby received. We decided to have tea and coffee, but the bar area was full and decided to go downstairs to have our coffee and asked the waitress if that would be OK and she replied yes, as long as we sat on the sofas facing the window. A waitress...

Just back from a two night stay here. We booked a junior suite as we had our little one with us and know from previous experience that the suites are roomy. We arrive about half three so half an hour after check in to find the room is waiting a final check however by the time the efficient chap on...

I went to this hotel, with my girlfriend, just for one night, as a Christmas present for her. We had a lovely time there, everything was really nice. The Scottish receptionist that did our check in, was really helpful and nice. Also, as I'm Spanish, there was a Portuguese guy in the reception, who speaks Spanish, so in my opinion,...

Huge non-event. No gala dinner, no fireworks, no balloons or crackers and no live band - total lack of atmosphere. This was the opposite of their 2014 Hogmanay Party which was fantastic. They had A DJ playing 60s and 70s music and two Pipers at midnight. The participants on the dance floor were predominantly children - still running around at...

Two night stay, couldn't say enough to praise this place. It's just fabulous. The food is excellent regardless where you choose to eat. Although I'd recommend the Clubhouse every time. Trip advisor wants me to write more - no need to.
