Old hotel with good sized rooms. Staff were very welcoming, the locals frequent the bar and are happy to engage in conversation. Breakfast included. Fruit, cereals, porridge and cooked. Quite warm when we were there and no cooling.

Had two very good meals at this hotel. Wide choice available on the menu and specials board and all reasonably priced. I had the lamb shank which was excellent. One draft ale available. Staff are friendly and helpful.

The hotel could do with an update and a bit more professionalism. The towels were not changed after three days and neither was the bed linen. In fact the bed linen was still the same after 7 days.The bathroom was tiny with some mould around the bath. The breakfast, while okay, could have a greater assortment including some non-fat options... More

We were staying at a caravan site appx .5m away and found this hotel was good for drinks and food. It's on the way to the golf club and a little way out of Crail centre. Staff were very friendly and helpful - serves lunch, afternoon tea and dinner from burger or chicken in basket to curry or steak. I... More

Three of us had an evening meal here. We reserved a table in advance and were pleased to be given a lovely table in the window. Service was very prompt but also very patient with our dithering. We just couldn't decide what to have from the extensive menu! My trout with almonds was of a good size, nicely cooked and... More

I stayed for four nights and couldn't have felt more comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful, especially with my dietary requirements (dairy allergy). The chef adapted meals from the main menu to accommodate my requirements, whilst still ensuring they were delicious! I will definitely stay again

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
