In these fast changing times in the catering trades, the weakest tend to go to the wall, as customers seek out places that are developing a sense of pride in their surroundings, and what they have to offer. Quite Right, too! The Royal is undergoing major transformations, still, but the new owners are on their way. Anstruther is a very... More

I went here with my mrs on our first weekend away. Great place. Down to earth people. No snobs like you think there would be in a wee down like anstruther. Made feel welcome and treated line par to a family. Would definitely recommend

eat here if you want good home cooked food and entertainment by the waiting staff. Mr Cook was very attentive and friendly a sheer tonic made our day and we will certainly be back.We have eaten in most establishments in Fife and would highly recommend this one.

Hotel is very outdated and although we booked an ensuite we did not get one. The hotel was not clean and I certainly wouldn't recommend it. The drawers in the bedroom were falling apart and the bed covers were stained. The landlady was smoking in the bar and the breakfast was below average.

The service from the one staff member on duty when we arrived was very good, he was most helpful and friendly and even gave us a discount because we weren't staying for breakfast, but it was all downhill from there. This hotel is in serious need of modernisation and just some care. The rooms were simply awful with mismatched furniture... More

This was a really good stay, the wife and I could not fault the hospitality of the staff or the fantastic breakfast that we received the next morning. As for the rooms, they were basic but very clean and comfortable, just what we were looking for, for the price that we paid. If your looking for scottish hospitality this is... More

I have stayed in this hotel a few times and i have to say that it is a basic, no frills hotel, but you cannot fault the service. The staff are very friendly ( I CAN NOT UNDERSTAND WHY ANYBODY WOULD SAY THEY WERE INTIMIDATED BY THEM), the rooms although basic were spotless and the breakfast was beautiful. The staff... More

There are no pictures online for this hotel and there is good reason. We paid £60 a night for what is the worst accomodation I have ever stayed in. You could forgive the dated decor if it were at least clean. There were no ensuite facilities, only a shared bathroom for 8 bedrooms. This bathroom with toilet had no sink... More
