I had the unfortunate experience of staying at this hotel recently, thankfully it was only for a single night. There is a comprehensive list of issues with this hotel which resulted in me wishing I had been anywhere else rather than here., including: entrance was dark and dated; threadbare and malodorous floor coverings; deserted reception desk on arrival; in general...

The Hotel was fantastic for our dog. There was no extra cost for her and she was allowed to stay alone in the room. I was advised where I could walk her. I thought the location was stunning although it was a shame our room didn't have a view. I found the staff to be friendly although one or two... More

What a wonderful location. As soon as I saw the lovely hotel next to the village green I thought I had gone to heaven . My wife was delighted and we went in. Sadly everything went wrong from the moment we walked into hotel. We waited at the reception area but no one arrived. Eventually a waiter arrived with white... More

Stayed here on Saturday night. We had room 6 with a great view over the Firth of Forth looking over towards the Forth Bridges and an old castle across the water. Room was spotless. We had a lovely 3 course a la carte meal and cooked breakfast. Drinks were reasonably priced. The highlight of our stay was the short walk... More

We stopped for lunch & asked first if our dog was welcome - no problem outside and we were shown a shaded table in the well-kept back garden. I asked for the '2 Courses for £9.95' menu but was told this n/a outside and was shown the (dearer) snack menu. A simple 'please' got us what we wanted. Chili prawn... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel last weekend. We had a 5pm voucher deal which included a 3-course dinner. The room itself was rather small and the decor was old-fashioned, but everything was very clean and the windows looked out onto a very nice garden. The sink in the bathroom was incredibly tiny, but did the trick. I... More

This hotel seemed a bit tired in some areas on arrival. however after speaking to the staff, they were showing us the refurbishments taking place throughout the hotel. we had room 11, which was bright and comfy. our friends were next door in room 10 and as the window was small and high, it wasn't as bright a room.

When we arrived the front of the hotel looked ok. The hotel is in a lovely area of Fife . The entrance was gloomy and looked tired and the room was just as dated and there was a definite smell of dampness although there was no signs of any. The menu looked like something a child thought up, predictable, old... More
