I grew up in Charlestown and on a chance visit today thought we would have lunch in what I remember to be thriving, busy hub with great food, service and atmosphere.

Another little gem of a hotel tucked away off the beaten track on the banks of the Forth. A down to earth hotel with a "what you see is what you get" atmosphere. Clean, comfortable & friendly. We were off the following morning to the 144th Open Golf at St Andrews. Breakfast was excellent If you like small & friendly... More

Stopped for high tea with several other cyclists (had called to book in advance) and enjoyed excellent service, lovely cakes and comfortable surroundings. Would highly recommend and will definitely return.

Came into the bar with friends after a walk, he didn't greet us in fact it looked as though a smile might have cracked his face. The place was almost empty so I would have thought he would have been glad of our custom. The bar was pleasant enough but his manner would stop me ever going there again.

Located looking over the Firth of Fourth. Bedroom and bathroom in need of an update. Breakfast staff very polite and professional and very organised with a willingness to please. Breakfast was a traditional Scottish breakfast with usual toast, fruit juice etc served with a good supply of coffee. Rooms were disappointing.

Arrived at hotel late afternoon very welcoming lady at reception we were offered our bottle of wine that we were getting with the deal, but the lady said we could have it with our evening meal which was good. Our room was lovely and quiet looking over the fourth. We went to the bar for a drink before our evening... More

As we had a walk in the area we booked a Groupon deal and were not disappointed. We had a lovely room (11) one window had a sea view with the side window overlooking the village green. A very nice spacious room complete with an iron and ironing board. A nice touch was 2 bottles of water and a little... More
