Very clean,quiet & comfortable hotel. Staff very friendly & helpful. We enjoyed our freshly cooked meals. This is a very good base to visit countryside & places of interest in east Fife,& walk the many beaches. A most enjoyable holiday. Margaret, Edinburgh

I needed four rooms (due to number of friends and family) and this was the only place in Crail that could accommodate us for the dates we needed. Rooms are very small - my bed was pretty uncomfortable. It others in my party didn't share that experience. Decent bar and pub grub. Breakfast was served but I have to say... More

We haven't stayed in this hotel. We have only visited for food. The decor in the bar area is tired but the food was great! The dog is welcome in the bar area which is great. It was good value for money and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Have just returned from a very restful and enjoyable short break (Mon to Fri) at the Balcomie links hotel. Although this is only a 2 star, it surpassed our expectations, our room although small, was scrupulously clean, a sea view, and was very quiet as we were on the 3rd floor. I particularly liked the lovely fluffy towels we were... More

The staff of the hotel were very friendly unfortunately the management made me feel as though I was an inconvenience. Breakfast isn't available until 8am so I ended up paying for 8 breakfasts that I wasn't served, as I had to be at work by 8am. The wi-fi is totally unsuitable for work purposes as almost every website and web... More

We stayed for 3 nights when the Crail food festival was on. The hotel was clean and the owners welcoming. The breakfasts were good and we ate in the hotel twice and the food was very, very good. Some parts of the hotel needed upgrading, the ladies toilets and the bathroom suite in our room needed changing. We really enjoyed... More
