Arrived for an overnight stay. Porter was very friendly. Got us settled in a couple of minutes. Room very clean and spacious. Lovely warm water. Good selection of breakfast. Waitresses extremely friendly. Been there 2 years ago and would definately come back!

You can park in the back and take your stuff up through the bar. Depending on what time you get there, it might seem a little shady when you do it because that bar gets packed. It's a climb to the bar then another climb to your room. However, the room was QUIET. You could NOT hear anything that was... More

Having stayed here before a year ago I was expecting the same again, sadly it was not too be. The room I was allocated for the 4 days was a small box room on the top floor, the sloping ceiling meant I could not stand up to us the toilet, and the bed was very small, after a long deliberation...

Have been going to Weavers restaurant regularly over the past few years and sadly the food quality and quantity has been gradually reducing over the past 6 months. Whilst the staff used to be very friendly and the benchmark for other establishments they appear to have been instructed to be less so. To make matters worse they have changed from... More

Good location. Good value for money. Great customer service. Good reasonable priced food. Value for money. The only issue was the locals - very loud, brash and abusive to non locals. Shame as the hotel is a bargain and the service is good.

I stayed here for one night so I could go to a concert in the Alhambra. Room was basic, but clean and comfortable enough. The Alhambra and local pubs were within a few minutes walking distance, so it was ideal. Train station isn't too far either, about 15 minutes walk. Will definately use again if I'm ever back in Dunfermline... More

Stayed whilst going to a show in town. Good location, friendly staff and reasonable bar prices. Hotel close to all amenities and also about 10 min walk to the train station for easy access to Edinburgh. Would definitely stay here again if ever in town.

Varied menu for both meat eaters and vegetarians. We were given a nice table in the conservatory area. Pleasant staff and food served promptly. We enjoyed our meals and will eat here again. Plenty of parking in nearby car park.
