“Excellent - Especially for the money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2008

Stayed at the Crusoe for 1 night on business. I have stayed at many other hotels within this area & this is by far the best.
Why? - Atmosphere is great, friendly prompt staff, great pub connected below which has a good local feel. Food both my breakfast & evening meals were superb & again very reasonable in cost. The breakfast was particularly good which is included in your room cost. Location is very relaxing & pretty, not something I could say about my typical business hotel.
Overall Impression A+++

This Hotel is right on the beach. Very warm reception and friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble. As a woman travelling on her own I found the Hotel to be very safe. The Food is excellent!!! I could hear the waves lashing against the rocks just outside my window. I believe some of the rooms are being upgraded.

I have just returned from The Crusoe Hotel and am feeling totally relaxed after a lovely weekend. This is the 3rd time I have stayed at the Crusoe and each time it has been great. The hotel sits right on the beach so that you can hear the sound of the waves from your pillow and awake to greet an amazing sunrise over the sands. The food is always amazing - breakfast is great with plenty of healthy options, organic yoghurt, and wholemeal toast, the barfood is delicious and dinner is truly wonderful. The staff are all lovely and professional and the hotel is locally owned. Lower Largo is small, but it also has another little bar called he Railway which sells real ale and is right across the road. I always feel so relaxed after my stay there. Fantasic weekend break deals and great value even when paying full tarriff. Great scenery, great service, fantastic food!

we had to cancel a trip to naples as my wife was recently rushed in to hospital for an emergency eye operation. thankfully we traced the crusoe hotel on the internet. it was everything we needed for my wife still to get away but have a relaxing time. everything about the hotel is excellent. the location the staff the food, just everything. we will be back and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to visit this part of scotland for any reason.

Why? We know that the restaurant in this hotel is first rate and were keen to enjoy a romantic night away which included dinner. We explained all this to the hotel just a few days beforehand (special anniversary, loved the dinner we had here last time, etc, etc). They were most accommodating over the phone, arranged a room with sea view and quoted an all-inclusive DBB rate. We were excited at the prospect.

When we arrived, we asked, innocently enough, whether we needed to book a time for dinner or whether we could just turn up when we felt like it. "Oh no, you can't eat in the restaurant tonight - there's a ceilidh on....big party. You can eat in the bar if you like".

We were completely bemused. We saw no evidence of preparations for a ceilidh in the restaurant and never did find out if there really was one. When the receptionist let slip that we were the only two people booked in for dinner that night (so, we were booked in, then?), we just couldn't help wondering whether the chef had given himself the night off.....

We declined to take the room and drove the two hours back home. Pity....that restaurant really is first class but the words "again" and "never" are alll that now spring to mind.
