My partner and I stayed for two nights in the room with the very large bed - bliss! Comfortable room, all usual amenities and we had no reouble with the Wi-Fi connection, huge choice for breakfast but we went with the Smoked Haddock and Scrambled Eggs on both mornings as the fish was absolutely delicious. We also dined there one... More

We stayed here mid August. Nice size room! I think it was 2 twin beds pushed together which worked perfectly. 2 windows and so could create a nice breeze, although the air flow inside was fine without. No view but inner gardens are a nice touch, with tropical and native plants. The only complaint I have is very minor, there... More

Fab warm welcome, nicely decorated and sparkling clean rooms with the most comfortable bed ever. Only downside was slight lack of deafening between floors - could hear noisy conversationalist and every footfall from upstairs. Great - and extensive - breakfast. Sadly did not eat dinner in the Waterfront bus, based on breakfast, would be happy to do so anytime.

As our previous visit, an excellent stay. Rooms spotlessly clean with excellent facilities and very comfy double bed. Staff very helpful and attentive with wide selection of food at breakfast. Would recommend for any visit to the East Neuk.

We stayed in the ground floor room of "the Granary", which has plenty of space. The bathroom was super modern and we liked the little touches in the bedroom with tea/coffee making facilities, shortbread biscuits and bottled water (sparkling and still) provided every day, not just on arrival. If you are "light" sleepers you might be disturbed by the creaky... More

This is a great place to stay. We had a lovely double room with a very comfy bed. Really friendly and efficient staff. Had a great meal in the restaurant and there was a vast choice of hot breakfast food as well as fruit, yogurt, cereals etc. I would highly recommend it.

We spent a night at the Waterfront. Lovely welcome from Fiona who could not have been more helpful during our stay. We had room 1 which is on the top floor at the back, so no views but very quiet which was ideal. Wifi is a bit of a challenge in the room but there is a little courtyard downstairs... More

My family and I had a super meal at th waterfront. The service and food were excellent and I would certainly recommend any of my friends to partake of food at this wonderful restaurant. The situation for this eating house is perfect for parking.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Described as "One of the treasures of the East Neuk," The Waterfront was proudly opened in May 2003, hosting a 55 seat a’ la carte restaurant. Personally run, The Waterfront has Anstruther’s finest location situated just a few steps from Anstruther’s harbour and marina with views over the Firth of Forth. During the warmer months we boast al fresco dining to the front and a mature courtyard for relaxing to the rear. We aim to cater for all tastes. Varied Seafood selections, chef’s specials, children’s menu, delicious coffee and cakes. The Waterfront seafood selection is surely there to impress boasting freshly delivered fish from local markets including oriental scallops, citrus salmon, stuffed sea bass, steamed mussels and a true Scottish favourite that has stood the test of time, good old Fish and Chips. ... more   less
