Hidden away in Inverkeithing (but pleasingly near the train station) is a gem of a B&B. I feel I shouldn't rave to enthusiastically because it won't be available next time! Joking aside this is a genuine warm welcoming delight of a B&B. Highly recommended. For those who enjoy walking or running there is an excellent coastal path with stunning views... More

I stayed here whilst working in the area. Isobel and Pat were great hosts. The room I had was very good and the en suite would rival anything from a more expensive hotel. The choice of breakfast was superb, when I told Isobel that I would be leaving early she made me up a bag of fresh fruit to take... More

If you're looking for a warm, friendly Guest House outside the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh, this is the place for you. It is quite close to the Inverkeithing Railway Station, and the trains are very frequent in both directions. You will be met by a friendly couple who are anxious to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The... More

I'm a bit late writing this review, but hopefully I can still convey how much I enjoyed my stay at The Roods! Having been cycling all day, I reached Inverkeithing, and was pointed towards this cracking wee bed and breakfast, who just happened to have a room available at incredibly short notice. When I arrived at The Roods, having called... More

Isobel and Patrick at The Roods offer a genuinely warm welcome and spotlessly clean, comfortable accommodation. The breakfast is lavish with high quality local ingredients, home-made jams and Isobel's amazing fruit salad (15 fruits!). We have no hesitation in recommending this fabulous B&B.

This was a very nice place to stay. The room was very clean. The breakfast was very good. The B&B is very convenient to both the train station and the Edinburgh airport. Isobel and Patrick were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this B&B.

Hosts Isobel and Patrick make you feel welcome at The Roods from the moment you arrive. The accommodation is immaculate and in a beautiful, peaceful garden. Wide choice for breakfast which is beautifully cooked and presented, and the tower of treats is the icing on the cake. Very convenient location for travel by car or train. So glad I chose... More
