Fairmont St Andrews Review

The Fairmont St Andrews hotel, which can be found near to St Andrews in Scotland, is nothing short of a hugely impressive hotel. The building itself is quite something to behold, but the sprawling 520 acre estate and North Sea coastal setting is what really sets this special place apart. Fondly referred to as the “Home of Golf”, those wielding an iron or two will certainly not be disappointed by the Fairmont St Andrews, however there’s a lot more to this resort than meets the eye.

When we arrived at this hotel, we were blown away by the grandeur of the building itself. That, paired with the immaculate grounds made for a very memorable first impression. If the sight wasn’t impressive enough, we were greeted by the most friendly, tartan-clad doorman who promptly assisted us with our luggage.

Walking into the building, we were surprised by how large the lobby and atrium were and how open plan and spacious the common areas were. It was quite a sight. Once checked in, we were shown to our room - a Deluxe Room - which we were certainly not disappointed with.

We were blown away by the grandeur of the building itself.

Our room boasted a distinctly Scottish feel, which was very welcomed given our location, offering a cosy and comfortable yet elegant ambiance. The king sized bed was most welcoming, but the views over the North Sea were really special. The bathroom was also noteworthy, offering a corner bath and a separate walk-in drench style shower, along with a single wash basin.

Of course, we couldn’t visit the Fairmont St Andrews without mentioning the impressive golf offering. Having been voted both “Hotel Team of the Year '' by the Scottiish Hospitality Awards as well as “Best Hotel (over 50 rooms)” by the Scottish Golf tourism awards in 2018, it’s fair to say this is a special golfing resort. With two courses - the Torrance Course and the Kittocks Course - to choose from, there’s something for every golfer, from amateurs to professionals.

For those looking for a less golf-orientated break, we can certainly recommend the spa. The spa area offers a wide range of facilities from a 16 meter swimming pool, a poolside lounge, jacuzzi, aromatherapy steam room, sauna and no less than 10 treatment rooms. There’s also a well-equipped gym for those looking to stay active.

If wining and dining is more your thing, you’re also not likely to be disappointed by the Fairmont St Andrews as there’s no shortage of options. Their signature restaurant, the St Andrews Bar & Grill offers an array of fantastic seafood options as well as a fine selection of Scottish steaks. There’s also a more casual Italian restaurant La Cucina at the resort as well as a few outdoor options for those sunny days, including a yurt.

If you’re in need of a little more entertainment, however, there are plenty of family-friendly activity options, including the archaeology guided coastal path walk, which you can enjoy with a luxury backpack picnic, as well as nature trail challenge, french boules, croquet and badminton. You can also arrange other activities at the resort including falconry, archery, clay pigeon shooting and segway experiences. The hotel is also located only a short drive from the picturesque town of St Andrews which is well worth a trip and the hotel also offers a complimentary shuttle service on the hour.

Overall we were thoroughly impressed with our trip to Fairmont St Andrews, which was extremely enjoyable from start to finish. It’s the sort of resort where you can jam-pack a trip full of activities, or simply relax, and have a wonderful time either way, meaning there really is something for everyone. We can’t wait to return.
