The Hazelton Guest House
Ranked #3 of 9 Crail B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 12, 2013

My husband and I had never been to Scotland before and The Hazelton was our first stop in our travels. We were met by David and Karin who were very welcoming and at the ready to provide dining and sight seeing information. The hotel and room were clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were filling and delicious. The B&B was in the heart of Crail, a charming town on the Coast. We took the coastal walk which was very picturesque. We also took a trip to St Andrews, which is about 20 minutes north. All in all, out stay was a very pleasurable experience. I highly recommend the Hazelton to travelers looking for a quaint village and friendly people. David and Karin were great!

Firstly, David & Karen are wonderful hosts! They are genuinely friendly people who really give excellent customer service. It was a delight to meet them!

The B&B itself is an old Victorian building with good dimensions and is tastefully decorated. It's located in Crail which is a beautiful small harbour village, very near to St Andrews & perfect for a place to rest for the night if you're doing a tour of the east coast.

We stayed in the Superior King Size room with the sea views at the front of the house. The room is spacious, has a table & chairs, a sink in the room itself, as well as an en suite. The en suite is a bit small, and the shower isn't as powerful as some people may like, but it is adequate. One thing that I loved was the bed! SO COMFORTABLE! Definitely didn't have any problems sleeping.

Breakfast is perfect. Plenty of fruit, yoghurt, & cereals to choose from and the Full Scottish cooked breakfast is delicious. There are also other options if you're not a fan of a big breakfast.

Overall our stay at The Hazelton was a lovely experience & if we're ever staying in the area again I would not hesitate to return!

Room Tip: Superior King Size room has sea views, very spacious & a VERY comfortable bed :)

David and Karen were very gracious and attentive to our party of four. We started the day with a full Scottish breakfast, which featured delicious home made marmalade. For dinner we crossed the street to the Golf Hotel Restaurant. Accomodation was comfortable and tastefully appointed. The printed walking tour hand out was very helpful in directing us to interestinig historical sights nearby.

Having never stayed in a B&B , i was wonderfully suprised by the large tastefully decorated double rooms. The sheets were the finest crisp white cotton and the cleansliness second to none. Breakfast was a treat, with lots of fresh fruit and an array of choice to be had, with the inclusion of the best, full scottish breakfast ive ever had. The personal touches karen and david (the proprietors) provide make this a little gem, in a beautifull part of the world and i couldnt recommend enough.

My friends and I had the good fortune to stay for 2 nights (June 4and 5) at this very lovely guest house. Karan and David are great hosts. They are warm and friendly and very helpful. The rooms are beautifully decorated, and the breakfasts were excellent and very generous! We would highly recommend the Hazelton to anyone travelling to Crail. The location is perfect for enjoying the area.
