From the outside you may think the hotel will be a bit corporate and lacking a personal feel - so wrong! The staff are all very welcoming and really make you feel special, and the hotel has style and lovely finishing touches. A superb place. Our room was in the part still to be refurbished, but was still great, spacious...

A lovely late autumn visit to one of my favourite hotels. It didn't disappoint. Service was excellent. Excellent choice at breakfast. Food and drink a little expensive so ate out in St Andrews but hope to go back.

I was given a gift voucher for champagne afternoon tea to celebrate my retirement from a colleague and so we decided to treat ourselves. I contacted the hotel and booked a table. At the time I offered to let the reception know the voucher number- she said it wasn't necessary and that we should just arrive. We were given a...

The staff are very welcoming and everything you would expect from a hotel of this standard. The recent renovation is stylish, sophisticated and tasteful. If you are looking for a relaxing time be it in the spa or one of the bars, then you will not be disappointed.

We spent 5 days at this hotel while our daughter was looking at the university. The staff are remarkably kind and engaged. The rooms (we were in a newly updated room) were excellent. The bathrooms and bath products are terrific. The beds are fine and we thought that the pillows were excellent! The breakfast is enough to sustain a person...

Just back from a night at St. Andrews. The hotel has been renovated since the last time I was here. We were in one of the newly done up rooms, bathroom was stunning. Breakfast was great as usual. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

A friend and I booked the Overnight Indulgence package this past weekend and we were not disappointed. The package itself includes the overnight accommodation, a spa treatment, access to the spa/pool, 5 course dinner, full breakfast & afternoon tea and we thought it was great value for money. We travelled from Aberdeen so got off the train at Leuchars and...

Amazing stay for my girlfriends 21st, staff upgraded our room upon arrival, complimentary champagne, unexpected things that go along way! Room, surroundings, pool area and food was fantastic. Would urge anybody who has not experienced the fairmont to do so!

Fabulous stay, the minute we drove up, we were treated like royalty. The doormen, seen to our luggage, had our room cards ready and parked the car. Such a friendly and attentive level of service. Upgraded to a Suite , with a view over St Andrews, spectacular. Headed to Kittocks Den, for a few drinks and a bite to eat....
