We loved our stay at Fairways. The rooms were perfectly elegant with clean, simple decor. The hotel is right around the corner from the Royal and Ancient. Breakfast was delicious and made to order every morning! Sandra and Owen helped us with NYE reservations and train station pick-up! Wonderful hosts for a great weekend away.

Sandra was a great host - we felt very welcome the minute we set foot in the place. The room was lovely, wi-fi was free, breakfast was perfect and location spot on. We are very familiar with St Andrews but were unaware of this wee gem. Highly recommended 😀

Our welcome ways really warm, Sandra was great, really chatty and we all loved it. Would definitely recommend this place to stay, just a few steps away from the 18th hole. Very relaxed weekend away with family. Can't wait to go back. Thanks again Sandra see you soon. Kirsty.

The location was perfect. The 18th green of the Old Course was a 30 second walk around the corner and the centre of town was only a 5 minute walk. The room was lovely. Two single beds combined to make a very large and comfortable king-size bed. The bathroom was very functional and the large shower worked brilliantly. The pièce...

Sandra took over the Fairways just over a year ago and it was very good then. Since then it has kept up a great standard. It is excellent food and a very welcoming and attentive lady. Well worth a visit,

My wife and I were visiting St Andrews for our daughter's 21st birthday. We knew nothing about this place beforehand, but it's a fabulous place. Alexandra who manages it is great and her chatter over breakfast makes it more like a family visit than a hotel stay. We will make this our accommodation of choice next time.

We stayed here last weekend for a family wedding. I picked it from the list of options supplied by the bride. Honestly, we could not have hoped for a nicer place to stay. Fairways is small but excellent. Beautiful clean, comfortable and stylish rooms and bathrooms. The location is brilliant for the town, the golf courses and the beach. All...
