Reviewed January 20, 2007

I recently organised a fundraising event at the Gilvenbank Hotel for over 100 people. This was my first attempt at an event of this size so I was a little wary and a bit nervous at the prospect. I had approached the Gilvenbank Hotel quite early as a possible location and I was very impressed with the attitude I received from all the staff right from the outset. On entering the hotel the first time I was greeted by a smiling receptionist who dealt with my enquiry in an cheerful and efficient manner. I was introduced to the owner, Dennis, and without prompting was offered coffee from one of the waitresses. This went a long way to putting my mind at ease. During the discussions nothing was a problem to the hotel staff and any requests or changes I had were accommodated without question. The whole evening went without a hitch. The food, although from a basic menu, was hot, tasty and well presented. There were plenty a waitresses who appeared happy and smiling throughout the evening. I received not one complaint from any of my guests in fact a few said they would return to dine in the hotel at a later date.
This hotel was only opened last March (06) and the rooms as you would expect are nicely decorated and are of a high standard. A double room cost under £50/night with breakfast and for anyone visiting the area is well situated within the heart of The Kingdom of Fife to visit many of the attractions Fife has to offer.
I would urge anyone travelling to Fife to seek out the Gilvenbank Hotel. I have stayed at many hotels throughout Great Britain and abroad but this place for friendliness, service, price, value for money is hard to beat.
All round I find it hard to find fault with this hotel. I will definately return in the future.
