“Disappointed is an understatement”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The service was bad from the moment we checked in, it's on a caravan park! Web site does not tell you this but bar and restraunt are shared with the Caravan park.
Cheap quality food with a high price tag.
Never again!!

Spent last night at this hotel on a Groupon voucher but upgraded to an executive suite. This was an excellent decision as the views were spectacular! Everything about the room was faultless, comfortable, stylish and spotless. Had the high tea in the restaurant, which was very good value for money as the portions were huge, well cooked and well presented. Breakfast this morning was again excellent and very much appreciated that there was a vegetarian option for the cooked breakfast as this is seldom offered in most hotels. The staff offered excellent service and were very friendly. Nothing seemed to be to be too much for them. Will definitely return!

Stayed here on 20 Oct 2012 when attending the Wishbone Ash gig at Lochgelly. (Great band and they get better)

Nice new building with well equiped but not a large room (it was small) however the website didnt say it was in the middle of a caravan park. Bit like a holiday camp with hundred of static caravans around. The grounds were cramped.

Nice polite helpful staff and the food was good and prompt but the room I stayed in was very noisy from a wedding party down below. It did finish at midnight however. Strange plumbing noises.

Fantastic views to the south if you get the right room and from the resturant/bar.

Yes it is ok but dont expect a country hotel, ask for a quiet room if you are visiting.

They dont allow dogs

Room Tip: Make sure there isnt a wedding or a party going on, if there are then get a room well away from the...

My partner and I stayed in The Bay hotel with a groupon offer. We upgraded our room to The Executive Suite ( I would highly recommend this suite). The hotel is beautiful and situated on the shore front, the views are amazing. Our room was very nice it had modern decor and we had a balcony. The room also had an upstairs where our bed was, the windows in front of the bed were floor to ceiling size and made waking up in the morning that little bit special when waking up to that view. The restaurant food was delicious, the breakfasts were nice with loads to choose from. The dinner menu was lovely with a great variety (I highly recommend the sirloin steak - it was the best I have ever tasted). The only bad point I would mention is the pool area could be doing with an upgrade, it doesn't fit in with the standard of the hotel, but the hotel is situated at a caravan park so the pool is more suited for that. I would highly recommend this hotel and will defo be back for another visit.

We went here to celebrate my son`s 18th birthday,and had a great night. The food and service was very good and great value. There were three parties that evening,as well as other diners,but the waitresses still had time for everyone.We will return,thanks.
