Stayed here when it was St Andrews Bay and although it is now part of the Fairmont Group it still retains an individual feel and atmosphere. Room, staff and service all excellent, location has spectacular views towards St Andrews town. Handy shuttle bus every hour saves the hassle of parking which can be a problem in town.

I came here with friends last week for a spa day. It was great! The staff were very attentive and made sure we had a relaxing day. We were given robes and slippers which was a nice touch, we also got a glass of prosecco which was lovely. Would definitely recommend a spa day here.

We stayed one night, dinner, bed & breakfast. I was somewhat taken aback by the distance the Hotel was from St. Andrews - several miles. The location is very attractive - right on the coast beside it's own Golf Course, which is obviously why so many of the guests were Golfers. The building is modern, with a large Atrium just... More
