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

Having been to a wedding and stayed overnight, found the food atmosphere and rooms very pleasant. Staff were very friendly and had a nice atmosphere about the hotel in general, would definitely recommend staying either as a night out or a function.

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime, busy, but seated quickly in the extension. Service fast and friendly, good hot food at a reasonable price. 1 childs meal, 3 adult main meals and drinks for £29! Bargain! Probably one of my favourites in Dunfermline!

Entrance from street a bit of a disgrace tbh but was clean enough, friendly staff and for a three star it is what it is but really if you hadn't booked and looked In the door you would keep walking. If your the manager reading this for God sake go and have a look with fresh eyes! Great location tho

A great stay at the City Hotel. It is fairly basic but the rooms are clean, the breakfast is nice and the location is perfect. It wasn't too loud even though it was right in the heart of Dunfermline. Will definitely stay again.

Single room was very snug. Bed okay for one night. Room very clean. Free Wi-Fi which worked well and a good breakfast included . Hotel ideally located for access to Historic buildings and excellent public park. There is a good variety of bars and restaurants within 10 minutes walking distance .

Stayed here for three weeks as we were working up here. The rooms i stayed in were very large and comfortable and had tea and coffee making facilities and were kept very clean and tidy. The two bars downstairs are very good and reasonably priced. The small bar in the front is only open at weekends which is a god... More
