Felt an important guest even before arrival. Nothing we requested was too much trouble and staff were so helpful. Beautiful location. The hotel is spacious with the Atrium being a real feature. Stayed in Deluxe Seaview room which again was spacious with a huge bathroom.

Didn't enjoy the experience as much as the last time due to the 'Sports bar' and 'La Cucina' being closed upstairs. Also previously enjoyed the buffet breakfast where we could help ourselves however due to current restrictions we had to have breakfast served at the 'table'. Felt safe however in current climate but will probably wait until all restrictions lifted before considering another visit.

Just returned from a short break in the Fairmont Hotel in St. Andrews. First time we have stayed in this hotel and certainly won't be the last. Hotel is still operating under Covid restrictions but went out of their way to make everyone feel safe and secure. The standard room which was excellent with everything you could need, best bed we have slept in for a while. Breakfast on first morning was the first day the buffet was open and it all worked well. The highlight of our stay undoubtedly was the staff who were outstanding in every way. Friendliest bunch we have met in a while, special mention to Ben on reception who went above and beyond. Looking forward to a return visit in the near future. Jim and Sally Craig

Family of four and two toddlers stayed in hotel. Rooms lovely and spacious. Bar staff friendly. However, despite swimming pre-booked, there was an exercise class going on at the same time and it was too noisy for the younger child to go in. Breakfast and tea at 7.30 on the first morning wasn’t hot enough. The second morning service was dire. I was told it was because they were busy! Really! More staff need to be employed then. Reading previous reviews I see that problems over a period of time with breakfasts are a recurring theme. Surely these could have been resolved by now?
