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.

I will keep this short by just saying stay here! Perfect in absolutely every way. The rooms were spotless, large, well decorated, comfortable, clean and well appointed. Toiletries were in proper dispensers and there was a wide range in our rooms. Light, airy and spacious rooms in a quaint annexe. Staff were lovely and couldn't have been more friendlier or... More

I took my other half up to stay at the Waterfront on March 31st for a couple of nights as a wee birthday jaunt for him. The hotel is beautiful, although it was only the 2 of us we were in the lovely family room. Or the penthouse as David liked to call it. It was really well decorated and... More

I stayed a Saturday to Monday single room with a double. £52 for the lot. The accommodation is accessed via a small courtyard to the side of the restaurant. It is like a small town house with your own front door key. My room was wonderful. Fantastic how shower, free view tv, draws and small walk in cupboard / wardrobe.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on an Itison deal and were impressed with the size and cleanliness of the room, and the fact that the deal included the full menu to choose from for dinner. Breakfast was also very good, with choices from the full menu again. In the room was our complimentary bottle of wine (we chose red,... More

Like many previous reviewers, stayed here on an itison deal but it was the small details which made the difference. Free water in rooms, bottle of wine being exchanged for a cold one when we took it from room to restaurant and extremely pleasant staff. My gran even went as far as to say it was "the best holiday she's... More

We stayed 2 nights in this lovely B&B. The room was fabulous and the breakfast exceptional- great choice. We'll definitely be back! It was an excellent base for walks along the coast to Pitenweem and St. Montana. Anstruther was very picturesque.

We stayed here for a couple of nights, enticed by an ItIsOn voucher, and weren't disappointed by the accommodation. Our room was actually in a nearby building, but it was really comfortable, clean and well-appointed. Despite the fact that the shower-screen in our en-suite had no seals and leaked lots of water onto the floor, the room dried quickly and... More
