Love going here, have been many times and always had a good meal at worse and sublime at best. Quiet different from going into a normal restaurant as when you go in, you wait in the parlour area when you arrive and have a drink and munch on some nibbles while your table is made ready (doesn't matter if you...

Two of us stayed here earlier in February and were booked for 4 nights the rooms were spotless and spacious, the food was brilliant and the staff were really friendly and very helpful. Could do with some nicer sofas and chairs in the bar area but lovely...we will definitely be back here highly recommended!

My family and i were staying for 3 nights, trying to catch up with friends and family and based our decision to book the Garvock on previous stays - in the 18 months that i have been back to Dunfermline i have opted with the Garvock quite simply becuase it offers fantastic service and excellent food. The rooms are plenty... More

We didn't actually stay at the hotel, but we did have lunch there on Christmas day, in fact this was our family's 3rd consecutive Christmas day lunch. This year was up to the usual high standard, the food was delicious and the staff were all very helpful & friendly. The only negative note would be that there was a mix... More

We were fortunate enough to spend 10 nights for the Ryder Cup at this exceptional establishment. The extremely pleasant staff, the friendly atmosphere, the fine dining, the general ambience and attention to detail made us feel delightfully welcome.

Absolutely superb venue in all respects. Would highly recommend. Our room was excellent and food first class. Wedding arrangements were very well organised and ran smoothly. I was able to spend some time in Edinburgh which is 30 mins by train to Waverley station in city centre. An excellent place to stay if you are touring Fife and Lothians.

We stayed at room number 25. Had a really great stay. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfest was very good, with classic music accompanying. we also liked Hector, the furry puppy that replaced the "do not disturb" sign. Great visit, would like to come again.

Perfect room. Very clean and comfortable. Staff extremely helpful. The food was lovely and breakfast choice was great. Would certainly revisit and recommend to others visiting the area or to locals looking for a nice meal.
