Restrung review only. We did not sleep at this establishment. Been visiting this little town by the sea. The Water front is situated very close to the sea by a main road. We had lunch outside in the sun. The service was a little slow. It seems there were only 2 waitresses serving. The place looks like a café, food... More

We stayed recently for one night and really enjoyed it. Lovely big room on top floor with large bed and good pillows. Decent bathroom with good shower. Breakfast was not bad with several choices. Did not use the restaurant but went to sister hotel The Bank and ate there. It was really good.

Our friends took us for lunch and recommended the fish.Was not disappointed.The fish was a very good size and lightly battered and quite delicious.The plates were big in order to fit everything on ! Dessert a mixture of sweet delicacies was a delightful way to end our meal. Good atmosphere in here and service to match.

The best things about my stay was the location right on the harbour and near to award winning fish and chip shop. The breakfast was fabulous with a great range of choices, fresh fruit and haggis. The room was modern and clean and the ensuite was spacious and bright. The room was a little small as was the bed and... More

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.
