Nice room, friendly staff. Breakfast alright. Falkland is a very authentic Scottish village (Outlander). View at the Falkland Palace. Room was clean, the pub below closed at the time we want to go to sleep.

Love this place, only our second visit but it feels like we've been going for years. Really friendly staff (and locals) make you feel welcome. Rooms are very clean and comfortable and the food is excellent and in portions that even I can't manage!!! Can't thank Crawford and his team enough for making us feel so welcome. Will be back...

The Bruce Inn is an adorable little inn located in beautiful Falkland. We stayed here for one night on a horseback riding tour. Everyone at the hotel was fantastic. We really enjoyed Crawford and Anne's hospitality! The room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The food was great and we enjoyed a nice time at the bar... More

Very disappointing lunch experience - for example, the soup (not great) served with white, sliced loaf bread from the supermarket. Service indifferent - very overhyped place. Maybe further acqaintance with the Bruce would change my view, but methinks there are many much better places to try.

Second stay at this friendly inn. The room is big and spacious. The mattress has seen better days but apart from that, it's a lovely room with a great view of the palace. Breakfast is good and the meal we had last year was excellent. Very friendly staff. I'd stay again in this beautiful village.

We had a family lunch here a couple weeks ago with our parents and our son and it was fantastic. Quick service and the lunch was delicious and great value for money. So glad we found this place, we will definitely be back

Cycling across Scotland with a friend and we stopped here for one night. Very helpful and friendly. Allowed us to store our bikes in the garage, good food, large clean room and great pint of Nessy. We also had a great breakfast with them in the morning.

Having left Falkland over 40 years ago this was a trip to the past. I went to meet old friends and exchange stories about the past. I was lucky to get Bedroom No 1 directly opposite Falkland Palace front door Great View. Staff are very friendly and Helpful' Food is good and breakfast huge. Bedroom very clean.

Fantastic place to stay. Everyone was really friendly, the food was great and plentiful. It is a great base to explore Fife. Will hopefully be back soon to explore some more. Can't thank the staff and locals enough for our welcome
