Great place for traditional afternoon tea. Beautiful setting, lovely house, attentive staff who are friendly and helpful. Good views across the manicured garden towards the Forth Valley and beyond. Treat yourself, you will not regret it

We had dinner in Garvock House in September 2014. I left a review following that visit and commented on the relatively slow service but also the fact they acknowledged it and apologised. We went back on Saturday night with another couple and thought the whole experience was absolutely excellent. The service could not have been better. It was an excellent... More

I was only a guest at an evening wedding reception. There was no one at the desk to direct me nor markers to say what room the venue was in. (Some hotels have more than one suite with more than one wedding event). The ladies toilets although clean and stocked were poor in that the locks didn't work and I... More

Third visit. Excellent food. Excellent room. Excellent staff. Same as before. Would love to go again next year. Manager couldn't do enough for you. Same with is staff. Lovely gardens to walk in or just to sit. A wedding was being prepared for just as we were leaving.

This hotel is the best Dunfermline has to offer in my humble opinion. I have stayed for the best part of seven months . I've tried other hotels in the area and none have come close . I have stayed in nearly all the rooms- from the oriental feel of room one to the honeymoon suite- I felt like a... More

This hotel oozes class. It is a beautiful building in stunning grounds and is grand in appearance, however has an intimate feel about it. The rooms are beautiful, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. As a wedding venue it is top class. Food is wonderful, large portions and delicious, drinks reasonably priced and plenty of rooms and bars to accommodate guests.... More
