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.

We had an overnight stay here. Weather was pretty atrocious but the room was light & airy with plenty of space. Bed was very comfortable too. Plenty of gratis refreshments available in room, ranging from hot beverages to still & sparkling water. Only downsides I would mention were that it was impossible to get online from the room itself. This... More

Just had a fantastic lunch today Tuesday 13th May. We just decided on spec to go for a wee trip and lunch out and we certainly were not disappointed!!! Food was outstanding and staff friendly and efficient. We will be back well worth the 60 mile round trip for a day out on our holidays.

We have stayed in this hotel before and enjoyed a very comfortable stay with good food and service. This time, we were very disappointed in our room and the food. Our room, room 10 had a shower head which did not fit the bracket properly. As a result, the water came out horizontally and soaked the floor. The glass shelf... More

Myself and a mate stayed in an ensuite twin for 7 nights during a Fife golfing trip. Wonderful friendly staff led by Pat and Kerrie, nothing was too much trouble, loved the cooked brekkie(no haggis or BP for me) and the fish & chips was the best. Fosters on tap worked well for us Aussies. Ainster is a truly lovely... More

Booked in on a great rate for dinner, bed and breakfast. Rooms are a good size, well appointed and only a very short walk to the Harbour. Food in the restaurant - which overlooks the harbour - was varied and very well cooked.

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
