What a great hotel! Fantastic, friendly staff - all of them. Meal in bar was superb (and quick to arrive). Recommend the mixed grill. Great entertainment in the Karaoke bar. Friendly locals. Room was excellent. Clean, well presented and sizeable. Shower a bit on the weak side but otherwise room was great. No problems with noise and I was at... More

Went there for breakie with the family. Happy to see us when we arrived. The staff provided Fast service, the breakie had plenty of bits on breakie, they provided unlimited brew refills to the point I felt I was taking advantage of them, and of course child friendly. The staff could smile more but heyho the worlds not perfect.

Love the all day breakfast. Sets you up for the day. Lovely friendly staff. Recommend this hotel without question. Spotlessly clean. In the centre of town near the beautiful huge park. Rooms lovely. It's a busy hotel but nothing is ever to much trouble.

We had never been at this hotel before, but a close friend and his bride had their wedding reception here. Service and food both excellent. They certainly did not hold back on the portions of food served up.

Another night out in Scotland came my way recently for me and a colleague and I chose Dunfermline and the City Hotel. My first impressions were of a place that's stood the test of time well. I checked in and went up to find my clean but basic room with its view of the bins and stored ladders. Not exactly... More

We have had a beautiful meal in hotel this evening. We regularly dine in the hotel and find the food on every occasion to be fantastic. It is freshly cooked and there is always plenty to eat. The menu offers a great range that would suit all as well as a children's menu. We usually opt to sit I'm the... More

We have never stayed here so could not comment on the accommodation however from what I saw of the hotel it looked nice. I can comment on the food in the restaurant which both my parents and I thought was fantastic. I would recommend anyone visiting Dunfermline stop here for a bite to eat.

Dropped in for one drink and stayed until the end of the evening - food good as was the entertainment. The hotel has a really good atmosphere. Staff could not be more helpful and were very welcoming. The entrance from the high street could do with a facelift it's not until you go through the hotel that you appreciate the... More
