My wife & I had booked a 2 night break with breakfast via Wowcher. On arrival was welcomed and shown to a clean room. Immediately noticed very squeaky floorboards. Evening meal - I tried the lamb, was just like I'd get from a boil in the bag source at home only both it and the carrots were barely warm! The... More

This was not a pleasant experience. Old fashioned , no wifi and the food was the worst I have had in many years eating out. The bedroom small, old smell about it and something out of Faulty Towers . I feel the room need gutted and re done including the bathroom which was dull and looked dirty. The bar area... More

My wife, sister-in-law, brother-in-law and my wife's cousin and his wife have spent a wonderful 2 nights in the Elgin Hotel, Charlestown, near Dunfermline. The rooms were very clean and were what we expected from a hotel of it's standing. We only had breakfast in the hotel. However, it was just what we wanted, the helpings were more than filling,...

Very friendly welcome. Room spotless and well maintained. Comfy bed. Can't fault it. The staff are very friendly and efficient. Edinburgh, Dunfermaline and Loch Levin are close by. loch Levin is a good day out - there is a boat trip on the loch to a small island with a castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned and later...

Just back from a 2 night break at the Elgin using a groupon voucher. On arrival we were given room 7, the honeymoon suite, The room was big, clean, and the views were amazing. There was a bottle of Prosecco and a box of Thorntons chocolates on the table as part of the deal. The bed was king size and... More

I had read the reviews on Tripadvisor before booking this hotel. It was a gamble because so many good reviews and so many bad reviews. But my Aunt who died recently was born in Limekilns and she had requested i spread her ashes near there which i did. So on our way home from a lovely holiday in Scotland we... More

Was unsure about this hotel after reading Trip Adviser reviews but it was nice enough.. We booked with short noticed so I was surprised to find lovely views of the water and Forth Bridges from our room. The decor could definitely be updated to give the place a more modern feel but it was very clean and comfortable with a... More

I have never used Trip advisor before and wish I had checked this hotel out before booking. I found the place very quiet and uninviting . The general look of the Hotel... More
