“Absolutely Loved it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2011

Just returned from a fantastic weekend stay at the Fairmont St Andrews. We were so impressed with the hotel and the level of service provided by the wonderful staff! Our room had fantastic views and was very comfortable. The food was amazing also! We will definately be back in the very near future. Thank you for making our stay in St Andrews so enjoyable!!

We stayed for 1 night as treat for wife's birthday and good value for 5 *. Beautiful room, great facilities, pool, gym etc. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Make sure you have an omellette made to order. Very relaxing break and would highly recommend.

A family member gifted us with a stay at the Fairmont via groupon voucher as a wedding present, stay had to be jan-feb. When we called to book advised no availability left for groupon deals but as a courtesy they would extend to march!! However no rooms and spa available on the same day (present included spa treatments) after much discussion my husband secured the last Sunday in march with spa treatments at 5pm. Hotel and staff lovely and friendly, rooms beautiful and breakfast hearty. Spa was gorgeous as was massage but staffing was a bit of a shambles, receptionist was trying to do a million things at once, folk queuing to sign in resulting in late appointments, they moved my husbands treatment back 30 mins without advising him but we just relaxed by the pool. Would definitely return to hotel as close to the beautiful town of St Andrews (£8 taxi) but I think I would look out for reduced deals such as ours(and book them fast!)

We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us at Fairmont St. Andrews. In addition we are pleased that you were able to find a time to stay with us on the special package that was offered. It was disappointing to hear of the challenges you had in our Spa and I am glad that everything worked out. We have made some changes to our Spa operation to ensure a relaxing enjoyable visit.

We had stayed at the Fairmont St Andrews earlier in the year and had a few problems.
No complaints this time. The room was perfect and the facilities genuinely five star.
I would say that the Spa facility as good as any I have experienced. If you're having breakfast in the restaurant be sure to get the omelette cooked while you wait. Really good.
The staff were friendly and courteous.

Throughly enjoyed my stay here. They staff seemed to strike the perfect balance between professionalism and friendliness. The whole ambience of the place is one of quality and clas, without the 'stuffiness' that is sometimes felt at this level of hotel.
The food was excellent, as were the Spa and Gym facilties.

Walking into the hotel we knew straight away it was going to be amazing. From the outside the hotel is beautiful and has a fantastic view.
The staff were very welcoming and helpful as soon as we arrived and this carried on throughout our trip with breakfast and any of our enquiries.
The room we stayed in was magnificent! Always thought taking a picture for granted from hotel websites was a bad idea but this room was picture perfect! We only stayed here two nights but the maids cleaned our sheets and replaced our towels both mornings.
We also used the facilities of the gym, spa, swimming pool, sauna and steamroom. All of which were top spec.
Overall the trip was amazing and visiting St. Andrews wouldnt have been the same without staying at the Fairmont Hotel.

I was staying at this hotel for a meeting and it was great. The meetings ran smooth and the staff looked after everyone attending the meeting. I found all staff in the hotel very professional and they couldn't do enough for me. After the meetings I took in some golf on the Kittocks and Torrance and those are great courses. My favorite is the Kittocks with some great views by the sea. I have another meeting coming up in the fall and can't wait to come back. This time I will bring my wife so she can enjoy the spa it looked amazing and some of my colleauges had massages and really enjoyed them. My favorite place was the clubhouse where I had dinner. The absolute best food and views anywhere.
