I booked this hotel for a surprise 50th meal for my mum's birthday on Saturday, and this hotel went above and beyond the call of duty! The staff were so friendly, they did everything they possibly could to make sure the whole event was a total success, including being very accommodating when I had a last minute cancellation. They even... More

First impressions are important. Driving up to the hotel gave me hope that the experience would be a good one - clean driveway, well manicured gardens and good signposting for parking. I was not disappointed. This hotel managed to do everything right from the moment I walked in to the moment I left. Spotlessly clean everywhere, both in public areas... More

We needed a place to stay that was not too far a taxi ride from a restaurant in the centre of Dunfermline, and decided that even though it wasn't cheap we'd try the Garvock House Hotel. We got a reasonable rate for room only (we already had a dinner reservation elsewhere, which was lucky because the restaurant at the hotel... More

I stayed here for one night on a business trip to Dunfermline. This hotel is fabulous. The room was excellent and the service was second to none. I ate in the restaurant and the food was also excellent. I will certainly be returning. Thank you.

My partner and I had dinner here last night. Nice atmosphere but over- attentive staff. We were asked by four different members of staff if we wanted our coats taken. We said 'No' to the first but still they kept coming. It was the same during the meal, we weren't given much peace and three staff were hovering closely all... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent visit. We do pride ourselves on our attentive service however it seems as though we were rather too attentive on this occasion. I'll pass on your comments about the coffee to the staff concerned. More

Last Saturday my husband and I went to Garvock House Hotel for dinner as it was our Anniversary. The meal was excellent as usual and the staff efficient and attentive. All in all we had a lovely evening and would have no hesitation in telling all our friends as it is well worth a visit.

I have been to this hotel twice in the last couple of weeks and both times have been amazing. Service, Food, location, car parking. The only thing I would say is that the disco for the party night was not up to scratch. Two years ago they had a ceidlh band for new year and they were first class but... More
