“Amazing staff”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

My wife and I just had our wedding at the Victoria Hotel and the day went better than expected. All the staff at the hotel were amazing, especially Brian. All our wedding party really enjoyed the food and still talk about how lovely the Hotel is.

My Wife and I, and another couple, have been in the habit of eating at this Hotel, perhaps twice a month, mainly on Saturday nights. We have stopped, as the Bar area, is inundated with wedding guests, for an hour, whilst the Ballroom is switched from meals to dance floor. Believe it or not, the guests have to mingle in the public bar, as the hotel has not seen fit to provide a purposebuilt area.If you are having a drink, before your meal in the restaurant - you either can not get a seat or are struggling to get room, as the bar is filled to over-flowing with wedding guests. When you finish your meal, and the ballroom is not ready, you have no hope of a seat. This has gone on for years, and we have put up with it, but twice recently - small children, running unchecked through the bar have spilt drinks on/near us. The hotel is good - the food is good and the staff are first rate, but the lack of a specific area is causing havoc to one and all. Imagine a Bride in her finery having to try and dodge her way through the throngs ! Need to spend the money Victoria - you get plentry weddings after all. Why not try a marquee in the car park if funds are so tight?

Room Tip: as far away from the pool hall next door as possible - at weekends anyway.

I stayed there a couple of weeks ago, as i was visiting an old friend for her birthday. Reception area was nice, however i must agree that i found the reception staff a little bit unwelcoming. They smiled and told me everything i needed to know about my stay howeve it was a bit cold and abrupt. The stair case was beautiful, however the room was a little bit dated and could have done with a paint or fixing the wallpaper that was coming off the wall. The fan in the bathroom was also stuck and made an awful noise when it came on, so think that might need a clean.

I would suggest that you may want to put up signs as to how to get back to reception as i got myself lost a couple of times and just kept going round in circles.

All in all i would probaly go back but it would not be for a relaxing stay.

They need to be reminded they run a wee hotel in Kirkcaldy. I find the staff in this place aloof. The restaurant menu offers pub grub that barely meets the average standard of pub grub... But apparently merits a 30% premium. not good value.not a good experience

I stayed here in may to attend a wedding reception the room was lovely and clean and very spacious it was a little dated and could do with refreshing of paintwork and carpets. The breakfast was fantastic with a good choice of cereals, fruit juice, yogurts etc. The cooked breakfast is a must as it was freshly cooked to order and was delicious.

Rooms very basic but clean, the service and friendleness is to be comended on from check in to the bar staff. about a ten min walk from kirkcaldy rail station and 15 min from the bus station taxi £3.00 from both stations approx weatherspoons pub ideal for food in the high street brakfast at hotel very good. If i had to mark anything bad aboput this hotel it would be the carpet in the bedroom it is ready to be changed but other than that i cant fault it.
Price top end of the scale for bed and breakfast in this area due to not having a single room avaliable when i wanted to go so i got charged for a double room for 1 person.
