Very nice view on the cost on the fifth of forth. Anstruther and Isle are visible by clear weather. Avoid strong north winds as the design of the heating does not support it. Food was good but service has been slow. To be noted, Croissants were very good.

We visited for afternoon tea and to see the facilities for a possible wedding venue . What did we meet-- hordes of guests attempting to book in at 3.30 with one person on reception and no visible help for anyone it was all we could do to get in the front door. There was no place to sit for afternoon...

Reading 5 star reviews from recent entries on tripadvisor we could look forward to a fabulous relaxing day. Not so - I am sad to say. Very disappointing. Staff just seem apathetic. Booked our lunch - there was one other couple in restaurant / bar area yet we waited an hour for meal to be served. Not asked if we...

My wife and I have always wanted to have a short break at this hotel and so when I saw a good DDB deal on the MacDonald website I booked it for a Friday night. The location of this hotel is excellent with great views over the golf course and the Forth. It is only a short walk (10 to...

It's never good to get a card on your arrival with the room rate on it which is clearly meant to highlight that you would have been cheaper to go direct to the hotel to book, but just makes you a bit fed up that you have spent way more than you needed to for the romantic trip. But I...

The location is fantastic and first impressions are good. It's all downhill from there sadly. The service and amenities scream 'cutbacks'. Do you look forward to fluffy white robes and towels? Don't. They look worn and the belt loops were detached and belts mismatched. Slippers were laundered and looked stained. Spa is tiny and poorly maintained: loose tiles, mould, BO...

We booked the indulgent spa package via lastminute.com for my partner and I's anniversary. We arrived in good time for the 3pm check in at 2:45 pm and were first told that our booking had not been confirmed by the hotel. This was an initial let down as I had called a week prior to book the spa treatments we...

My wife and I stayed here in March for one night on a living social deal. Service fantastic from start to finish, food excellent, breakfast superb. We got married her 11 years ago, a member of staff overheard us telling a couple we met and gave us 2 glasses of bubbly to celebrate. Nice clean and comfortable room too. Thank...
