When Dennis Smith acquired The Shaftesbury, he ensured that, although all necessary upgrading was carried out, it was done sympathetically. Many of the original features were retained, in order that the property could keep its essential character. A huge white marble fireplace dominates what was the Drawing Room and is now part of the restaurant. The other black, marble fireplace - also Victorian - can be found in Room 1. The rooms are all exceptionally spacious, each is different, and each is furnished differently. Room 12, our Honeymoon Suite, is our largest. This delightful room was the Billiard Room, and has the most wonderful Gothic window. It gives the occupant views over Dundee and the River Tay. The Tay has always played an important role in Dundee life, and it can be seen from several rooms.Our bar is large enough to accommodate a 'guid crowd,' yet remains intimate. Friendly bar staff will serve you from a wide range of drinks and refreshments.

Pros: A complete, totally beautiful hotel. Staff was best of best. Gorgeous facility and only 1.5 miles from St Andrews and about 8 from our friends.
Cons: This IS NOT a criticism, but perhaps a suggestion. IT was warm in Scotland. Rooms were really warm even with fan. As in Europe all over, they just have a comforter. It might be worth having a sheet on each bed so the comforter can be removed.

I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling the area, especially those from the US, like me. Located in the historic Crescent community, the hotel is a beautiful building situated in a beautiful, park like neighborhood. Our room was large, and private, with a great view and private bath. The award winning gardens on the property (the loving work of Barbara - with a hand from Douglas here and there, I'm sure) were full of life and aromas - very relaxing after a long day of site seeing. The view from the gardens overlook the firth - breathtaking. The Scottish breakfasts were fabulous and tea was available in the afternoon. Douglas and Barbara are hoteliers (for certain) and run a great Bed and Breakfast!
Pros: The proprietors, Barbara and Douglas, and their staff are warm and welcoming, very knowledgeable of the area for shopping, golfing, and visiting attractions, very accommodating for taxis and breakfasts on the go.
Cons: The hotel is very well kept, very clean, warm, inviting.

The parking was free in an adjacent lot. There is a swank bar in the lobby with a nice selection of beer and wine.
Pros: The view was the best. The cleanliness and modern touches were very nice. We were given the room right across from the elevator and normally I would not sleep all night with the sounds, but this hotel was solid and we never heard anything.

Pros: The staff throughout hotel and venues we're incredible.
Cons: Air conditioning was not working.
Pros: Lovely views of the North Sea and presumably great golf courses. My suite was quite large and pretty comfortable
Cons: Mostly disliked the atrium which by its design and its decor made it feel like a second tier convention hotel. Compared to its closest competitor in town, the Old Course, the Fairmont was decidedly lacking in style and distinction. The common rooms (restaurants, bars,...) have no character or luxurious feeling to them.
The 520 acre five star Fairmont St Andrews resort encapsulates luxury, elegance and truly breath-taking surroundings in the Home of Golf.

Pros: Friendly staff, quiet and and very clean room. Overall a very nice hotel.
