“Disappointing experience”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We were bumped into an attic room after booking "deluxe" rooms, this was cited as an upgrade (!). After complaining, we wound up in a small cold room off a cold corridor over the health spa. Towel rail not working, extractor not working, central heating not switched on. Given an electric heater. Daughter was also to be moved to be adjacent to us again, but wound up down the corridor. Charged on arrival for our room despite having prepaid (but this was sorted very quickly). Manager unaccepting that any of this was an issue until he had confirmed "all the facts", kept interrupting and quoting the "heat recovery system" as the reason the heating and ventilation etc was the way it was. We have used this place before for ourselves and friends, but never again.

Excellent small hotel with great pool and steam/sauna area. Pleasant staff and excellent bar and restaurant Great location if you would like to explore this part of the world. Quiet. Rooms are a little dated but clean and tidy.

A very convenient hotel, that has good food, wine and a great selection of Malts. With an added gyn and swimming pool for those keeoing healthy. It is in a quite location and great spot for exploring Fife and coast. Plenty of golf and other activities to occupy. For business the internet is fast, though sometimes it drops out and restarts?

We stayed at the hotel in early March, and we were very pleasantly surprised when we were given a complimentary upgrade to the honeymoon suite on arrival. The food at dinner was pleasant, but the breakfast was probably better, a nice choice of cooked options. The decor in our room was a little tired, but the room itself was lovely (and massive!) and we had an excellent view over the front lawn. The bathroom was also very good size, with no shortage of hot water or pressure in the shower. Would recommend the hotel for a nice relaxing stay, not too far from Edinburgh.
