“A gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

Found by chance and what a good chance this turned out to be, a real gem. All the staff are attentive, service really means something to all of them. From the outside this looks like an old coaching inn, but inside it has been modernised. The rooms are modern and very comfortable, they have tried to think of all your needs. The bathroom in our room was small, but had a great power shower and toiletries were provided. Although our room overlooked the main road it wasn't noisy at all. Breakfast was great - all food cooked to order, fruit, yogurt, cereals etc served at the buffet. Scrambled eggs, kippers and the bacon roll are all to be recommended. We also had dinner here (do book, its a popular restaurant with locals) and again were very pleased with the food and service. There is a varied choice on the menu plus daily specials. The Arbroath Smokies was excellent as was the Crachan. This hotel was value for money both to stay and for a meal. The owners try so hard and deserve to be supported.

I travel throughout the UK for my job, staying in hotels of all sorts, from contractors B&B to four star, and quite simply this hotel outshines them all.

The food, service, comfort, location, and particularly the staff, are beyond compare, with service being to the fore at all times.

This is a home from home, and I never fail to enjoy my stay.

We went with family, 4 adults and one child. Food was delicious, the service was great and a nice atmosphere....everybody in our party had something different from the menu and were all very pleased with what we got. Freshly cooked and thought the bill for the food and drinks we had was very reasonable. Would definitely recommend it. The service was great too...no complaints whatsoever........Well Done

Stayed here for one night whilst on a business trip to Dunfermline. What a fabulous little hotel. Staff are very friendly and attentive, rooms are spotless, well equipped and very comfortable. The bathroom is compact and very modern - lovely powerful shower with lots of hot water.
The food, at both evening meal and breakfast, was freshly cooked and delicious, portion sizes were excellent. Ingredients are locally sourced which is great to see.
I would definitely recommend Kirklands Hotel for business or leisure

From the moment we arrived Anthony, Shona and their staff were very attentive. Our room was perfect. The compact bathroom was surprisingly modern and very attractive. Beds were comfortable. Linens great. Definitely have dinner in their dining room. Meal was great. The atmosphere a pleasure.

We have stayed at the hotel several times and it seems to get better and better. Service is always excellent and the food seemed even more delicious than on our previous visit. We had arranged a small family celebration to celebrate my retirement and Antony and Shona made it really special for us. They have created a wonderful friendly atmosphere which is popular with travellers and locals alike.

We originally booked for five nights and finished staying for ten nights. It was ideal for golfing walking biking and even going to Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games. The owners Antony and Shona were excellent hosts and very helpful and welcoming. The food was very good. Someone previously commented on the flat iron steaks - they are to die for! Our bedroom( room 7 ) on the top floor was spacious and well decorated and furnished. All the staff were good. We did for the first few days have very minor issues with the servicing of the room but these disappeared without any complaint on our part - we suspect the normal cleaner was on holiday. Overall the cost was reasonable and we have no hesitation in recommending.
