Having driven passed the Fairmont many times, as we regularly stay in the East Neuk of Fife, we decided to book an overnight stay in October 2013. We had spoken to many people who raved about the Hotel, so we were really looking forward to it. On arrival friendly staff and service great, room - Deluxe Sea View very nice and comfortable, no complaints there. The big BUT.....comes at the general ambience of the hotel, another reviewer quoted it, as Aircraft hanger like and I couldn't agree more...hotel felt very 90's in style and almost soul less, communal areas felt tired. It was a Tuesday and 2 bars/restaurants were closed, so we were resigned to the Kittock Bar...which served very average, slightly overpriced food, we had a better lunch in St Andrews Town in a small eatery, Sorry Fairmont, not up to the 5 stars, having stayed in 5 star establishments in UK and North America.
