The three of us stayed at The Fairmont for one night. We had a friendly welcome and were truly impressed by the newly refurbished ground floor of the hotel upon our arrival - it is so impressive, you can't help but take photographs. The new light installation gives it a great atmosphere (this is also where breakfast takes place). We...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

One of the quietest rooms I have ever had in a hotel, and with an extremely comfortable bed and gorgeous bathroom, and all pristene. I'm not a golfer, but the hotel's situation in the middle of a golf course was superb, with an uninterrupted view back across the bay to St Andrews, and full view of sunset from the grill...

The first thing to mention is how lovely the greeting is when you arrive at the hotel and to hear 'Good to see you again' is lovely. Nothing is too much trouble for the gentlemen on the door! And if you have children with you they are treated like mini vips 😍 Our room had upgraded bathroom which was great...

I stayed here with my girlfriend (now fiancée) in March! I had been planning to propose to her during the stay and the staff were so helpful in helping me pick the perfect place and making sure everything went to plan. They even helped me capture the moment thanks to a member of bar staff who couldn't have been happier...

I stayed here a few years ago and the two things I remembered were how comfy the beds were and how amazing the breakfast was. Having stayed here recently, I was happy to find these things hadn't changed. The beds were so comfortable and the bathrooms were so luxurious, I almost couldn't bear to leave. The breakfast remains to be...

We had a lovely (very rare!) one night break at the Fairmont last week. Here are a couple of notes: We were met by Davie who couldn't have offered a nicer welcome. Our bags were taken & valet parking offered. Our room was ready earlier than our check in time which was fantastic. We booked a 'Fairmont' room. This was...

From the moment we arrived the hotel had a lovely feel about it. All the staff were so welcoming, helpful and went off of their way to make sure you were happy and enjoying the experience. Loved the decor, the choices of bars and eating areas. The Italian served the best seafood linguine I have ever tasted. Afternoon tea was...

We arrived here on Sunday 16th April 2017. Myself and my son were up on the Saturday to play golf at the Kittocks, which was great fun, so the place looked lovely and I was looking forward to coming back up the following day with my husband to stay over for a little break. On arrival, the staff were fantastic,...

I've mixed emotions about our recent stay here. The reviews that I have read do not correspond with our visit in lots of ways. The hotel is undoubtedly beautiful and immaculately kept. However our experience was that it was quite impersonal in many ways. I'd booked a spa day as a treat.. the treatments were bliss and the therapist lovely....
