Great hotel

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Amy Friends - 29/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Thought the hotel itself and the rooms & restaurants were very nice! Only disappointing thing was the spa area. We had access to the leisure facilities and they were extremely limited...only 1 sauna, 1 steam room, and a pool with 2 jacuzzi's with extremely limited seating/lounge chairs surrounding it. Pool smelled extremely unpleasant. For such a nice hotel, could definitely do with a leisure area refurbishment...and then maybe it could compete with the Old Course Hotel on that front!

Not what expected from 5 star

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Anonymous Families - 28/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Rooms were very comfortable Service in bar area was not as expected - beer spilt over my pregnant sister in law . Cake brought to family celebration without topper and correct candle and with no prior warning which meant children weren’t there and felt they had missed out. Bill for food was given to my mum although it had been paid by ourselves . On Sunday we challenged had we paid bar bill when leaving when we had paid as we went . Breakfast was good but felt short staffed Checkout was understaffed with what appeared to be people questioning their bills . This was a special treat paid by mum to celebrate dads birthday . Just felt could have been so much better experience

Disappointed!

Despite finding the reservations staff less than helpful over the phone when we arrived the reception staff couldn’t have been nicer. We tend to stay at the hotel at least once a year but this was a special trip as it was my husband’s birthday but he’d also just been given the all clear having had kidney cancer. The reception team arranged for a lovely bottle of Prosecco and a slice of birthday cake to be sent up to the room. As regulars to the hotel it was nice to be reminded of the small but significant things the team does to male its customers feel valued. Well done team Fairmont!

Relaxing child free weekend with friends

Customer review rating 4.5/5

David W. Friends - 25/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was lovely and clean. Some of our party had water/glasses and a coffee machine. We didn’t have that despite us all being in rooms next to each other. There was a sewage smell coming from the shower drain in the bathroom which wasn’t pleasant. Lunch in the bar was pleasant however I’m not sure why the sports bar needs to be vegan, not required. Breakfast had a good choice and can’t fault it. Liked the late checkout time.

Great for a bit of a treat

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Annette Couples - 25/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Fairmont is a very impressive hotel. The rooms are fantastic, with lots of space and comfy beds. The restaurants are also brilliant, the Italian was one of the best meals I've had in a long time and the service also fantastic. We also enjoyed an afternoon tea, which was enjoyable but could've had a few more savoury options. Great also that it has a sports bar, although a bit of a shame that this was closed on the Sunday, when lots of sports are on! The only downside really was the spa, it was incredibly busy. I think more loungers and the addition of some more hot tubs would be great for busier times. Perhaps we just caught it on a very busy weekend. We were looking forward to relaxing by the pool, but it wasn't very relaxing. Even as part of an itison deal, I feel it's quite expensive, but great for a treat.

Lynn C. Families - 24/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stay as a family in Fairmont. Our latest stay was great as usual. However a few thjnfs to note. The swimming pool was cold..so much so we only lasted in ten minutes. My youngest is 5months and it was far too cold for her. There was a sewage smell around the pool area also. In the room, not a major issue but the dust on the silver underneath the bathroom sink was very noticeable..something I would have expected to see in a 5 star hotel. This did happen before when we stayed a few years back and the toilet hadnt been cleaned. I sid mention it at the time when checking out.
