Bankhead House
Ranked #5 of 11 Leven B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 14, 2013

What a great B&B. Friendly, accommodating, and professional. We showed up late (10 pm-- wasn't a problem!) after a day of sight seeing. Sue (the owner) greeted us at the front door and showed us to our first floor room, with ensuite shower.

It was large, spacious, clean and private.

Breakfast was made to order and delicious!

The house itself is absolutely stunning, and lovingly restored to its initial glory.

If you're in the area, you MUST stay here. 10/10.

We needed a room for one night, that was comfortable after what I knew would of been a long tiring day of travel. We were not disappointed. The location and room were wonderful. We were made very welcome by Sue and Len when we arrived.The house was immaculate, the room was very nicely decorated. The best bit was the wonderful view - luckily it was a sunny fairly warm day - so it was very relaxing sitting watching the sun go in. There was a hive of activity with the House-martin's flying directly outside our window nesting right above it (quietly I would add). In the morning the breakfast was great, and again in an immaculate dining area. Sue was very helpful with local advice. It is clear that a hell of a lot of work gas gone into this B&B - and it deserves all of the praise it gets. Give me this over a bland £100 hotel every single day.

We would stay again without question.

This B&B was our favorite from our 10 day trip. The setting was tranquil and scenic, the room was spacious, comfortable and private and the breakfast was fresh and homemade. The owners are a hospitable couple who renovated the property themselves into the modern and airy b&b it is today. You definitely need a car to get here but the drive through the countryside is beautiful and Bankhead is marked with directional signs from the main road.

A beautiful house in an idyllic location- large spacious bedrooms, nicely decorated with great views. Sue & Len were great hosts- very friendly & extremely helpful. They stored our bicycles for us, provided refreshments on the lawn overlooking the Firth of Forth, made the arrangements for our evening meal out and even gave us a lift there. A good night's sleep in a comfortable bed followed by a quality breakfast topped our stay off- Would definitely recommend.

My friend and I had a very relaxing stay in this attractive guesthouse. The bedrooms was very spacious with a beautiful view. We had a delicious breakfast and the hosts could not have been kinder. I would definitely recommend it to family and friends and hope to return myself.

I have stayed at the Bankhead House now twice recently on business travel with Diageo in Leven. Hands down amazing and convenient location. Wifi was great, very spacious room, and breakfast always superb. Sue and Len are delightful hosts as well. Can't wait to return again!
