Stayed at the Garvock twice over the last couple of months and it is absolutely first rate. The hotel building and grounds are maintained to an impeccable standard and the attentive staff / owners ensure that your needs are taken care of from the moment you arrive. The rooms are fantastic, well appointed with comfy beds and good quality furniture.... More

My husband was 50 and we wanted a family meal, knowing the Garvock is great we booked a table for 10 adults and 4 kids. We weren't disappointed! We were given our own private dining room, service was excellent, food first class and the staff were very attentive at all times. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a ball.... More

I was a guest at a function. Not that I know Dunfermline well but I didn't realise this hotel was there. It sits in lovely immediate surroundings, gardens, albeit in the midst of a residential area and quiet near the football ground. I believe it is family operated. Very nice food and very good service - a great asset to... More

The Garvock House Hotel is just minutes from the centre of Dunfermline, yet is wonderfully tranquil and quiet, set in beautiful gardens. A real haven of peace. The hotel is a very solid grey stone building, typical of buildings in the area. The rooms are luxurious, with excellent furnishings, and good WiFi in spite of the thick walls. The restaurant...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a delightfully elevated position in the ancient capital of Dunfermline - Garvock House sits proudly in over 2 acres of gardens, a glorious testimony to its hey day as a stunning family house. Truly 'the country house hotel in town.' Family owned and run, Garvock House has been transformed into a delightful hotel retaining an authentic and rather special country house charm and informality: relaxing and elegant with classic interiors, very comfortable furnishings and spacious rooms. And a passion for fresh produce which remains undimmed. Dunfermline hotels just don't come better than this. ... more   less
