The gardens are immaculate and offer great scenic views of Dunfermline. The rooms are very spacious and are well appointed with everything we needed. Our stay was for ten days and you may expect to... More

Stayed at Garvock House Hotel recently and would definitely go back. Our room was amazing (deluxe room ). Staff at the hotel were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. Had dinner in the hotel twice and could not fault a thing. Food was delicious and service couldn't have been any better.

Arriving in the car park we walked through the immaculate gardens to the hotel and immediately we felt relaxed. In all areas of the hotel the staff were very welcoming and friendly. Our rooms were spotlessly clean. We ate dinner... More

We always choose to dine at the Garvock to celebrate any special occasions and have always had superb meals. However when we dined there last Saturday, as a party of 8 to celebrate a special birthday, we were all very disappointed. The menu has been changed to a set menu and the meals, although still good, we're just not as... More

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
