I visited here with my family for a bar lunch. We had been here countless times in the past but hadn't been for a while. Big mistake coming back!! It was fairly quiet when we arrived so we were given a table instantly yet nobody came to take our order until after 10-15 minutes or so. The waitress actually took... More

I had another stay in The City Hotel recently and it was just as good as I remembered it. This time I had a car to park and the big, public car park provided a space for me no problem. I wandered in and it was just as I remembered, a lovely old hotel that had charm and character. I... More

Whilst up town decided to pop in for some lunch, hubby had all day breakfast , he is very fussy normally but he thoroughly enjoyed it, I had steak pie and have to say this was the best steak pie I have ever had anywhere, I eat out quite a bit but this was amazing , will be back soon

After arriving with major jet lag, the breakfast at The City Hotel was so great. Its 6.95 pounds all day long. Good food, great service, lovely restaurant. You will be full to continue on to your trek around the city of Dunfermline.
