Fairmont St Andrews shows its pedigree

22nd July 2011 Print

Fairmont St Andrews has taken the lead with new Pet Perk packages and is offering a five-star experience for visiting dogs after deciding they have had it ‘ruff’ for too long.

The luxurious Scottish resort has long been a pet-friendly venue with guests welcome to be accompanied by their dogs during their stay, but now it is not just the owners who can enjoy the venue’s five-star comfort.

The new offering follows the recent appointment of Fairmont St Andrews canine ambassador, golden Labrador Smudge, and strengthens the resort’s position as a truly pet friendly venue.

Pooches will be truly pampered when they arrive in their room with a luxurious bed and fluffy blanket to nestle into as well as water and food bowls.

In addition to ensuring the dogs fully enjoy their stay and have no anxiety at the new environment, the packages also mean owners need not worry about having to bring their own bowls and supplies from home.

The five-star Fairmont St Andrews resort is located in 520 acres of Scotland’s picturesque countryside and is next to the popular Fife Coastal Path, meaning guests can soak up the stunning St Andrews scenery while walking their companions.

But walking isn’t the only activity dogs and owners can enjoy together – golfers playing either of the resort’s championship courses are welcome to be accompanied by their dogs. Smudge is also available to join guests and their dogs on walks and those walking with her have often featured on her personal Facebook page.

Smudge transferred to the resort from a similar position at sister-hotel Fairmont Algonquin, in Canada, following her owner Garrett Turta’s move from Canada to become general manager at Fairmont St Andrews.

Since their arrival the pair have aimed to further enhance the five-star venue’s welcoming atmosphere and Smudge is regularly waiting in reception to greet guests young and old with a wag of her tail.

Dogs can stay in their owners’ rooms at Fairmont St Andrews with the Pet Perks package for just £20 per night.
