An impressive looking hotel from the outside, very grand looking in its surroundings. Views of St Andrew amazing especially on the days we were there with the sun shining. Inside at first glance the hotel is equally fabulous however as the eye settles you do begin to notice parts that could be doing with a lick of paint and freshening.... More

Lovely stay in the great setting but the hotel itself was a little bit disappointing. I had visited the spa before and was really looking forward to my overnight stay because of my previously positive experience. The room looked quite worn and needing a revamp. Also the bathroom, particularly the shower, wasn't decorated/cleaned to 5 star standard. The facilities onsite... More

The Fairmont St Andrews is a visually appealing, well kept property. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are pretty spacious and well appointed. Nice bathrooms with a bathtub and separate shower. I thought the breakfast buffet was good but not nearly as good as some earlier reviews would indicate. The hotel is a couple miles outside of St Andrews,... More

After being to the fairmont a few years ago a couple of times we decided to book the Fairmont again for my dad's birthday.

I don't often write reviews but having just read a few recent ones I feel I have to say, this hotel is exceptional.

Absolutely stunning! The room, the views, the food, the staff! You must eat dinner at their ocean view restaurant. The most beautiful view of the North Sea and excellent food and service.
