Forth View Hotel
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Aberdour
Reviewed 5 August 2015

Could not have been better. To begin, we were met with the quintessential Scottish accommodations overlooking the Firth of Forth. The views were amazing! The grounds were neatly manicured with cliffs to the east that caught the golden hour sunlight, then a gentle breeze. A deep sigh and then we entered. Many places visited say that they are "true Scottish hospitality." The Forth View Hotel stands above them all. We were never hurried, rushed, or pestered but there was ALWAYS attention if needed. Smiling, soft-spoken, treated us as part of the extended family. Magical really that a hotel can really feel like home. The restaurant, should have started there, was fantastic! Thanks for the memories, we will return if able!

Room Tip: Get a Firth of Forth View - very spectacular!

We stayed three nights while attending the Open at St. Andrews. We were greeted by Pauleen, the innkeeper and owner. Very kind welcome and showed us to our room. Accommodations are comfortable and clean. Had dinner right at the hotel and truly it is one of the best meals we have ever had and we travel often. Pauleen's daughter , Hannah, prepared the dinner. Fresh hot rolls out of the oven, an amusee bouche compliments of the chef, and a fruit palette cleanser before the main course. Seafood is fresh and elegantly prepared. The restaurant is a separate business run by Hannah. Highly recommend. View of the water from all tables, small dining room type setting, very cozy. Staff was knowledgable and very attentive. My partner is a vegetarian and they prepared a unique dish for him, was very good. Desserts and coffee delicious. Breakfast is granola, fruit, pastries, cereals, juice and fresh fruit. Then you also order main course from menu. I had poached egg, bacon, sausage, beans, and sautéed mushrooms. All made right away and served piping hot! Delicious, again with gorgeous view of bay. Coffee is served in a French press and my partner had yea. They even packed our breakfast to go the day we left early for our flight. Sandwiches, granola bar that seemed to be homemade and delicious, banana and apple juice. Such a nice touch and very much appreciated as we ate it in the car and at airport. Even if you don't stay here, go for dinner. This old historic hotel is down at the bottom of a drive. We enjoyed the adventure of getting down there. Delightful walk along a path to town, pubs, and the train. Thank you Pauleen and Hannah and staff!

Unfortunately we only stayed one night. But it was more than enough to appreciate this charming small family run hotel, right on the beach. The rooms need some upgrading, but they are clean, covering all basic needs, and they have a breathtaking sea view which easily helps you forget any mishaps. The staff is friendly and helpful. As for the restaurant, I have no words, the food was just amazing, by far the best seafood we had in Scotland and the service perfect. Breakfast was also excellent.
A hidden gem that waits for you to discover it!

Stayed at Pauleen's quaint place for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the property and the company. Pauleen is a gracious and helpful hostess. Looking forward to our next visit to Aberdour, and will definitely be staying at Forth View Hotel again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights stay at the Forthview. We appreciated Pauleen's generous and personal service, local insights, tasty local food, and stunning views over the Forth river. Our dinner at Hannah's 'Seaview restaurant' was excellent. Thanks for a great holiday! We would happily visit again.
