                        Dundee Airport is located approximately 25km or about a 25 minute drive from the resort.

                        St Andrews is not on the train line. The nearest station is Leuchars on main line from London, Edinburgh and Aberdeen (20-minutes away from Fairmont St. Andrews). St Andrews may be reached by car, taxi or by bus from Leuchars.

                          The friendliness and attentiveness of the staff - nothing was a bother and went out of their way to help. Also the spa / gym was very nicely done

                          There wast a problem with their Sky signal which for a luxury hotel is really disappointing

                          Nice room, attentive staff, useful shuttle bus service into town, lovely views of the bay. Good value deal on the room. Ate in one of the restaurants - food very nice.

                          Bit 'american golf resort' for my taste but overall very nice place. Prices within the hotel eg spa treatments, drinks, minibar, golf, room service were very high.

                          The staff at the doors, Uruguayan porter and older porter are very polite, helpful and gave good tips on the city highlights, unlike staff at check in.Beautiful location, although outside of the city. One needs a car to get around.

                          Although advised in advance about my wedding anniversary, we got nothing (unlike other much cheaper hotels we stayed at), not even a good king size bed. We had 2 beds put together: awful! Although the hotel claims to exchange your money, they do very little amounts, not even enough to pay our bill in Euros. Not worth the money, unlike the ones in Canada, which are fantastic.

                          The policy of the hotel for use of internet. Terrible, for such an high standard hotel with their price scedule. They have to change it. I will never stay there only because of the internet policy, unless the rest was perfect....

                          The concierge staff and front desk staff were very warm and welcoming and were great at directing us to places and restaurants to go to. The breakfast buffet was excellent.

                          The bathroom wasn't as clean as I would expect and also they never left us any hand soap to use. We were a bit surprised and disappointed about this.

                          The bedrooms are comfortable. The staff are very helpful. The views are superb.

                          The Spa is not up to the standard of 5* Hotels. The "gourmet" restaurant is not really operating at top level.
