My partner and I stayed overnight at Gruinard Guest House in Burntisland, Fife in the Springtime this year. Do you know, it was of much better quality than the supposedly four-star hotel we subsequently endured a month later in London!
Jean Bowman was an exceptional hostess who seemed to have thought of everything a guest could possibly wish for and was very welcoming and friendly, without being the least bit intrusive.
Our charming and spacious double bedroom, set into the roof space would you believe, was so pretty that I quite fell in love with it!
The large private bathroom, directly across the tiny hallway, was also absolutely beautiful with a superb view of the Fife coastline. I would cheerfully have spent time in it, even if I didn't require it's facilities.
We enjoyed a very comfortable night's sleep and wound ourselves down the narrow almost spiral staircase, which I thought was just the last word in cuteness, where we joined other guests to eat in a pretty conservatory overlooking the garden and the sea beyond.
Breakfast was delicious, with some very nice home made touches like the muesli, preserves, and fresh fruit salad served with natural yogurt which I found particularly delicious.
After breakfast we left to join members of our family at the local caravan park, which was very enjoyable in it's own way, but I so wished I could go back to stay at Gruinard for a few more nights!!!
