“Elegant B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2011

The nicest B&B that we have stayed in. Very lovely house exquisitely remodelled (featured in several decorating and design magazines), great views and very gracious hosts. Large beautiful ensuite bathrooms and very comfortable beds. Wonderful collection of art to admire and a great drawing room in which to retire to. It is situated in a quiet country setting with great access to Edinburgh via nearby park and ride and many sites of interest in Fife. We will return!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

Balmule is such a lovely place, we found it though a friend who had stayed there and it was a real surprise to find such a place hidden away on the outskirts of Dunfermline. The house has been renovated to a very high standard, with no expense spared, big comfy beds with each room being different. The hosts Robert and Francis were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us, the cooked breakfast was on par with a 5 star hotel. We had a walk around the lovely grounds and found a stream with a waterfall hidden away at the bottom of the garden which was amazing. Well worth the money and we will be back without a doubt. Would be great to hire the whole of the house for a special occasion such as a wedding !

Much of the character of the building has been retained but in a very comfortable manner. The bedroom (I had the yellow one) was spacious and the en-suite bathroom positively huge - the underfloor heating was bliss and a choice of bath or shower, not the shower over bath found in many places.
And a wonderfully peaceful location - I didn't put the TV in my room on as it would have been an intrusion in such a relaxing place.
There's a choice of breakfasts and the scrambled egg with smoked salmon is well worth having.
For adults looking for a peaceful retreat this place is perfect - and it is still reasonably close to cities and Edinburgh Airport.
