The hotel was great even before I arrived - they arranged transfers to/from Edinburgh Airport and accomodated a change in my travel arrangements at short notice. The room was gorgeous, very clean, quiet and spacious. I was attending a conference which included dinner - as a vegetarian I'm used to getting an average meal at mass catered events but that...

Had a fab time for my daughter's 40th birthday. Everything from the afternoon tea massage and meal in the clubhouse was excellent. I have to say this was the best meal I have had at the Fairmont. Started saving for next year. We will be back x

Booked into this hotel for a conference - absolutely first class. The only reason I recommend it for business is that at 15 pounds for a club sandwich it's not somewhere I would go on a vacation. It is a 5 star hotel and I guess the price goes with the territory but it's a little shocking to get the...

The SPA Treatment was perfect best one I may have ever had felt soooo relaxed and the oils they used were amazing on skin but the pool and spa area itself could do with an update & cleanliness should be looked at through the swimming sauna and steam room area as there was an horrible smell from these areas.

The hotel had improved in many ways since our last trip and we enjoyed our stay with the exception of the food. We ate in Kittocks Den and La Cucina. In both places the food was served lukewarm and the quality of the ingredients was poor resulting in a very mediocre, at best, standard of food. The burger in Kittocks...

Here on a event for three days, I just love this hotel and the staff, the food, the location not one complaint. I have stayed before 3 years ago and it's not changed a bit, the bed rooms are big and airy with all you could ask for including a nespresso Coffey machine.
