Inside Fairmont St Andrews’ $6,000-A-Night, Chef-Ready Manor Homes

Food & Drink

Those seeking a taste of Scottish charm now have a very good excuse to do so at Fairmont St Andrews. The hotel, a renowned golfing hotspot sat against the city’s gorgeous coast, has just relaunched its Manor Homes–and you won’t just want a taste, you’ll want a feast.

Under the expert creative care of Russell Sage (Dishoom, The Savoy, Zetter Townhouse), both Manor Homes – the Queenask and Kingask – have been transformed into luxury retreats with a heavy focus on entertaining and dining.

The four-bedroom Queenask, to start, boasts a grand entrance hall, sitting room, games area, cinema room, a fully-equipped kitchen/diner, and a luxury dining room with a bay window offering panoramic views of the Links.

Next door, the four-bedroom Kingask boasts many similar rooms, though its priority is a tad more drinks- than food-focused. There is a library and games room, featuring antique leather-bound books, as well as a sitting room and dedicated “dram room” where whisky enthusiasts can savor an impressive selection of fine Scotches. Naturally, a spacious kitchen and elegant dining room have also been decorated to the nines.

With both homes offering guests unlimited access to the five star resort’s facilities, championship golf courses, restaurants, bars and spas, the added “bonus” is the ability to hire a private chef into the properties.

An ideal add-on for the holidays, special occasions, or simply a night you’d rather spend with your family than in the kitchen, Fairmont’s private chefs cater to all your culinary desires. Head chef Allan Lorente specializes in bespoke gourmet meals that celebrate all of Scotland’s favorite dishes–and best produce–served from the comfort of your lavish accommodations.

And, with a £5,000 ($6,0000) per night price tag, you probably will want to make the most of your Manor Home.

“The Manor Homes offer an enhanced luxury residential experience complimented by designs and layouts which emanate the feeling of warmth, homely comfort and relaxation in the Home of Golf,” says Fairmont St Andrews’ general manager Kai Winkley.

“Both homes embody quintessential modern Scottish luxury and provide a private and cosy escape on the doorstep of the hotel’s vibrant atmosphere.”

Elsewhere at Fairmont, you can also indulge in sea-to-table dining at the St Andrews Bay Clubhouse & Grill, whether you’re coming from the course or the spa. Chef Mayur Vasu’s menu highlights the freshest daily seafood deliveries, from lobster to oysters, sourced from local St Andrews fishermen.

Of course, many key dishes from the Clubhouse and La Cucina (Fairmont’s esteemed Italian restaurant which utilizes many of the resort’s home-grown ingredients) are available via room service, too.

Whether you’re drawn to St Andrews for its history, its golf, or its distillery (Kingsbarns’ whisky and gin distillery is just around the corner), the hotel – and its Manor Homes – make for an all-encompassing home away from home.
