Overnight stay at The Fairmont with my daughter and gransdons on holiday from the Middle East, they love St Andrews and it's a must each time they come home that we visit. Noisy room which was supposedly an upgrade never accept a room opposite an elevator, mouldy shower which smelt, lukewarm coffee, uncleared tables at breakfast certainly not a 5...

The Fairmont is about 2 miles outside of St. Andrews, so I recommend a car. If you are a golfer great, if you are not, like me, also great. The views over the water and fairways are beautiful. The quiet of the hotel is perfect. There are nice walking paths around the property. The breakfast, which was included for us,...

My afternoon tea came with "Happy Birthday' written on the cake stand lovely touch. Our waiter Andy was brilliant, nothing too much trouble and he made our visit very special. The food was...

Thoroughly enjoyed three days at the Fairmont while on a golf trip. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The staff was very helpful with a friend's lost luggage. Breakfast buffet was fine. Nothing special about the Italian restaurant and our other dinners were outside the hotel. Enjoyed a massage at the spa. The location is great for golfing around...

Bedrooms were lovely, location is fine (especially if you like golf), spa and pool areas were great. The middle big area of the hotel though does not say 5*, seems more like a standard US conference hotel if you ask me. And the food. besides the clubhouse (which is a bit down the road), there is nowhere here to get...

Idyllic location with fabulous hotel. 2 excellent golf courses in the Kittocks (personal favourite) and the Torrance. Staff excellent and great choice of food at reasonable prices. Thoroughly recommend a trip to include golf (for those that do) and the spa facilities (for those that don't).
