The proprietor met us at the door and welcomed us to his hotel. Frankly that just about sums up the experience of staying at Garvock House. Personal, attention to detail, welcoming, just a really pleasant experience. We were shown to our room, a few items explained, the option of dinner and open handed advice about restaurants in town. Some people... More

We were warmly welcomed at Reception and immediately shown to the lounge to view the more than adequate menu by charming, young staff with prompt... More

I reviewed this hotel in May 2013, and just having returned from a night there I thought I would write another. It is as good as I remember it, but the little niggles I felt last year are gone. The hotel smelled fresh, last year I commented it smelt a bit stale not this time. The service, food, and prices... More

We stayed here for a wedding and had a great time, everything from the cocktails, room, service and especially the food was excellent. Would definitely recommend staying here and would do so if we were ever in this area again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a delightfully elevated position in the ancient capital of Dunfermline - Garvock House sits proudly in over 2 acres of gardens, a glorious testimony to its hey day as a stunning family house. Truly 'the country house hotel in town.' Family owned and run, Garvock House has been transformed into a delightful hotel retaining an authentic and rather special country house charm and informality: relaxing and elegant with classic interiors, very comfortable furnishings and spacious rooms. And a passion for fresh produce which remains undimmed. Dunfermline hotels just don't come better than this. ... more   less
