This is a first rate, family owned hotel with great service. The rooms are comfortable and the service is excellent from all the staff. The food is tremendous, especially the breakfasts and wifi is free which is always a bonus. Great value for money and I will be back

We booked this hotel on the fly, when we realized most of Scotland's lodgings were pre-booked during August. The price offered was par for the course for other hotels we had already stayed in, most of them modest and some, uncomfortable. We came upon Garvock House and had to rub our eyes in disbelief. From the impressive park-like grounds to... More

Warm welcoming staff, couldn't give them more praise. We arrived very early from the airport on the morning of checkup in. Given access to our rooms early and nothing was a problem. Considering they had a wedding the day before and another the day we arrived the staff were on top of their game

We had our wedding here on Saturday 8th August. It was perfect! All staff went above and beyond to make sure our day ran smoothly and they were so supportive in the planning process. Lorna, Scott and Pam deserve a special mention- so helpful! Lorna is the Mary Poppins of the wedding world- so organised! Scott is a very charismatic... More

If you want to stay in the Dunfermline area, like small country house style hotels and are not looking for onsite facilities like a spa and swimming pool this is a wonderful place to stay. The staff are excellent - very helpful, efficient and pleasant: nothing is too much trouble. The hotel prides itself on the quality of its service... More

My daughter held her wedding here. It is the most perfect venue for holding both the ceremony and the reception. The staff could not do enough for you and the proceedings from the start to finish were run efficiently. The food was amazing, the rooms comfortable and I would rate them 100%..

Garvock House was a find, as was Dunfermline. My husband, nieces and I stayed there for a few nights, in two rooms. Our room was large and gorgeous in classic or traditional decoration - I was told it was the honeymoon suite. Our nieces' room was more standard but also very comfortable. Everything was clean, the service impeccable, the restaurant... More
