My wife and I had heard the Strathearn was recently taken over and decided to pop in for high tea, with our 4 year old son. We didn't book, (although it would be advisable) and the staff were very accommodating in getting us a table. The food is traditional bar fayre, but it's made well and there was very little... More

We had a very happy and smooth running party for our son's 18th at the Strathearn on Saturday. Kirsty, the manager, was incredibly helpful, doing her utmost to accomodate us. The party itself went like a dream. The staff were great in dealing with the few inevitible minor issues that arise when you get teenagers together. Some of our friends... More

I stayed here the night before last en route on a cycle tour along the North Sea Coastal route. The staff were very friendly and helpful; especially the young woman on reception. They put my bicycle in a safe place. The breakfast was formidable, and everything else was fine. I recommend it.

The hotel is just a bit tired: there are unfilled holes in the room and bathroom where fixtures have been removed. The carpet was very stained (though probably clean) and everything was just a bit urgh. But, breakfast was really good and the staff were very very friendly and welcoming.

I would like to say that the staff that served the meal were very attentive, not at all like the proprietors. My aunt and uncle booked this venue for their golden wedding party. There were well over 100 guests and at least 25 of us stayed there. When they booked the venue they were told that we could bring our... More

Stayed here for 5 nights Could be great, but isn't! Crap and rubbish in a corner of the car park Reception area reeks of old chip fat! Although no laundry service was offered, as a favour they washed our clothes, which came back stinking worse than before they were washed. Room was dated, and en suite grubby and in need... More

My husband and I managed to get two Kingdom FM vouchers which are bought for £25 and can be used as £50 towards a meal. We visited after an advert appeared in the Fife Free Press advising that the hotel had been taken over my new owners. We decided to give it a try and arrived at around 1.40 p.m.... More

My brother and our respective wives went for a meal on 8 June 2014. Having read the reviews I have to agree with some of them. The Hotel is a bit tired. The staff, although friendly do not appear very professional, the waitress sitting on a spare seat at the table to take our order. She then proceeded to talk... More

Arrived at hotel to find staff sitting outside smoking at entrance. Low members of serving staff, food cold, no wine list. Table was dirty upon arrival. The whole experience from start to finish was terrible. Will not be back EVER!!!
