Realy excelent for business and pleasure :) Great food, a lot international but also local cosine. Very pleasant stuff. St Andrews can be visited by shuttle bus and I highly recommend to do it. For Golf fans this is a dream place. Can be great for any business meetings, weddings, golf, relaxation... Just TOP class of hotel.

We had a very pleasant weekend here. The staff and very friendly, helpful and efficient. We used the restaurants and spa and very pleased with the service. The room was clean and well equipped. We did have a problem with the heating but as soon as we reported the fault, it was soon corrected.

Lovely gift from our daughters, and it was a fantastic present. Although work ongoing in the hotel, we were placed on the 3rd floor, no noise or any disruption noted, apart from the main entrance, which was having a complete overhaul. Fantastic round of golf at the Torrance, meanwhile Angela relaxed in the spa. Lovely meal at the italian restaurant...

I am a frequent visitor to this hotel but am always stunned at the way it operates. Bar area, spa, restaurant all have the impression that they are struggling to cope with the level of business, which would be fair if the times I visit had been busy ,but they were not. I took my family at Christmas for nice...

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...

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...
