Lovely traditional stone built hotel set in well maintained gardens in a quiet part of Dunfermline. A traditional full service hotel, nothing is too much trouble, and the food was good. Edinburgh and the Fife coast are easily accessible, and it's much cheaper than staying Edinburgh. Also only a short ride to Edinburgh airport.

I've stayed in this a hotel a few times on business and always receive a warm welcome. Rooms are fine - it's just a shame that sometimes all the double rooms are booked so I have to go in a single room and the beds are tiny !

Garvock House Hotel is a very cozy and nice hotel. They have really good food and very nice staff. Best place ever to stay when in Dunfermline. Placed a little outside city center, but still in walking distance.

We stayed two nights in this charming hotel. The room was very comfortable and the breakfasts excellent with a very comprehensive menu. We ate from the supper menu on both nights and the food was of a very high standard. The best feature of this hotel is the friendly staff. The lady who booked the room for me when I...

Stayed at the Garvock twice over the last couple of months and it is absolutely first rate. The hotel building and grounds are maintained to an impeccable standard and the attentive staff / owners ensure that your needs are taken care of from the moment you arrive. The rooms are fantastic, well appointed with comfy beds and good quality furniture....

I was a guest at a function. Not that I know Dunfermline well but I didn't realise this hotel was there. It sits in lovely immediate surroundings, gardens, albeit in the midst of a residential area and quiet near the football ground. I believe it is family operated. Very nice food and very good service - a great asset to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a delightfully elevated position in the ancient capital of Dunfermline - Garvock House sits proudly in over 2 acres of gardens, a glorious testimony to its hey day as a stunning family house. Truly 'the country house hotel in town.' Family owned and run, Garvock House has been transformed into a delightful hotel retaining an authentic and rather special country house charm and informality: relaxing and elegant with classic interiors, very comfortable furnishings and spacious rooms. And a passion for fresh produce which remains undimmed. Dunfermline hotels just don't come better than this. ... more   less
