I was lucky to find a vacancy at Backmarch House. The welcome was very friendly and the room spacious and clean. This became a real home from home for me during my long stay and I can't recommend it highly enough.

This is my second visit to Backmarch House and I would recommend it to anyone. The decor is tasteful and everywhere is spotlessly clean. Scott and Ray are very accommodating and nothing is too much trouble. It is very homely and within walking distance of local shops and restaurants. Would always stay here if in the area. Tea and coffee...

I stayed at Backmarch House for 12 months whilst working in the Dockyard. Scott and Ray are both very welcoming and made my stay an enjoyable one, a real home from home.

Scott and his wife do a grand job of making you feel at home and I highly recommend the Full Scottish Breakfast - the black pudding is to die for. Always helpful in recommending places to go and visit in the area and just 20 mins on the train to Edinburgh city centre. Very friendly hosts. The rooms are very...

Choice of tea bags,coffee and shortbread in room. Bathroom warm and also full of toiletries.

Apologies for the tardiness in my reply but I wasn't notified of your review (more likely I missed it). Delighted to have you both again and hopefully we will have the opportunity to welcome you again in the future. A pleasure to have you. Kind regards Scott & Ray (and Nala of course)

I rang this hotel,but got no reply, and did not leave any message on their answerphone. Instead I e-mailed them and had an automated reply, saying that they would be in touch with me within 24 hours, regarding my enquiry. Some days later and still waiting I have booked another hotel in Dunfermline.

Dear Peter B Apologies that we missed your email & call back in January (and I'm only just replying now due to being unaware of your issue & review until today). Backmarch House is not a hotel with full staffing but rather we are a small, family run B&B. I am unsure of exactly when you called but last year...

Thank you for your kind comments & review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and always good to have such positive feedback from those who have stayed here previously, before we became custodians of this grand old house.
