I travel around the country with work and have a network of places where I normally stay but have always failed to find somewhere in the Dunfermline area where I'd be happy to return to - until now. And it's taken a while! Having somehow managed to get in at quite a late date given the various activities going on... More

100% satisfaction regarding everything about The Roods. The owners Patrick & Isobel are fantastic hosts and make you very welcome in their home. Quality room, furnishings, bathroom and the breakfasts are to die for. Location is about 1 minute walk from local train station which is on a direct route to Edinburgh (25 min journey). Peaceful location and had a... More

Well positioned for regular train service into Edinburgh, about 50 yards to the station. Room and bathroom were beautiful and lots of nice touches on hospitality tray. Good choice for excellent breakfast, and warm welcome.

Myself, partner, sister and her husband all stayed at The Roods, whilst in Scotland to see the Military Tattoo. We didn't wish to pay Edinburgh prices for our B&B, so chose The Roods due to its fantastic reviews. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The Roods was ideal for the train station - which is literally a... More

A wonderful return visit to see Isobel & Pat at The Roods. It is like "home from home" with the best hosts you could find. Nothing is too much trouble and the breakfast is the best ever!!. Cannot recommend too highly and looking forward to our next visit.

We spent one night at the Roods. A very lovely room, relaxing and convenient to the airport. We were in Scotland for 10 days and this was our last stop. Well appointed comfortable room. Isobel and Patrick even packed a breakfast for us to take for our early flight! Would certainly recommend staying here.

We stayed here for a two night break taking in the Military Tattoo. Away from the crowds of the city, the Roods was a delight. A cheap direct bus to and from the airport stops right outside, and a train into Edinburgh Waverley only takes twenty minutes. Much better (and cheaper) than staying in the city and getting taxis to... More

Ideal base for Edinburgh. Easy to reach. Comfortable room. Isobel and Pat are excellent hosts -- outstanding. Other guests were also very interesting individuals and conversation at the breakfast table was fascinating. It's nice to have a place to be able to recommend to people visiting the Edinburgh area.

Very convenient for Edinburgh and/or Fife if you prefer an EXCELLENT B&B with a little travelling involved. Train Station is 1 minute away and Tram Park and Ride is 10 mins away by car for journeys into Edinburgh. The rooms are excellent, clean and very, very well provisioned. The welcome and hospitality is outstanding. The breakfast choice and quality is... More

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
