We really enjoyed meeting up with friends for a Pre- Christmas Dinner Dance and overnight stay at the Fairmont Hotel. This is the 2nd year we have come as a group of 16. The hotel has a lovely feel to it and the staff are always pleasant and helpful. The live group on the night was excellent and the dance...

I love this hotel. It has really taken over as the best hotel near St Andrews and in my opinion surpassing the Old Course. The reception is nice and uncrowded, the breakfast area is large and spacious and the breakfast buffet is great and plentiful. The rooms are nice and have plenty of space and wifi is included for fairmont...

We dropped into the Fairmont just for afternoon tea and we weren't disappointed. It wasn't that busy the day we were in so no problems with service, we sat in the atrium area and even though it's huge it still felt warm and cosy loking out to a blowy St Andrews bay. Good wee day and we'd go back.

Excellent hotel . 5 star all the way . Golf course right next door . St andrews town centre - less than ten minutes away . Views of countryside and sea offer attractive walks in all directions . Try booking a suite for that extra touch of luxury .

This was my second visit for dinner, first trip with family 18 months ago & again in December with friends. My first trip was ok but slow service so I was somewhat hesitant to return but hopeful I'd be proven wrong about the service. We ate in the steak & seafood grill - we were seated quickly but were disappointed...

We returned to the Fairmont in St Andrews for the second time for my daughters first Christmas. The staff, facilities and friendliness to pets is the best. The hotel can't do enough to make sure you enjoy your stay. Can't recommend this hotel enough and my family will definitely be returning.

Staff could not have been any more helpful. They rolled out the red carpet for my daughter. After wedding going back to room to find it had been tidied up was a great help. With everything going on it was great to be able to get a late check out as well.
