We had a great stay here, in the double room with an en-suite bath and a view of Falkland Palace across the street. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. Staff were warm and friendly, food in the pub was excellent, and breakfast in the morning is not to be missed.

Nice inn in the middle of a beautiful old town, just opposite to Falkland Palace and Gardens. Excellent, hearty Scottish breakfast was provided in the morning. The inn has a pub and a restaurant, both are friendly places.

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.
