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

We were invited to a wedding recently at Garvock House Hotel. The staff seemed to go to great lengths to make the day special for all the wedding party and their guests.

I attended a family wedding here last week. We flew in from Ireland. Having left home at 2Am in the Saturday morning we landed into Garvock house at 9am. The staff could not have been nicer.

Our entire marriage ceremony, wedding breakfast, evening reception held here in June 2015. It couldn't have been better, the Rosemallen suite with it's outside terrace was perfect, the grounds provided a great background for pictures, the staff super, guiding us through the day, the food terrific. The bridal suite superb, and the other rooms very comfortable. The whole 'country house'... More

We organised a 'birthday' meal at the Hotel for our fathers 90th birthday in June 2015. As my wife and I were driving over from Germany for the meal we arranged a double room for 2 nights as well. What an excellent choice! Highly recommended. David Cowell, Germany

Family of seven had dinner here for a birthday and we all had a brilliant meal. From the various starters of goats cheese, king prawns and a meat platter to main meals of venison, steak, monk fish to desserts creme broulle. Everything was delicious and the service was spot on! Our third visit and will return to this great venue.

Attended a wedding recently at this hotel and have to say it seemed to go like clockwork.
