Pretty much standard Holiday Inn Express territory. Everything as expected. Staff friendly and unobtrusive. Breakfast almost acceptable. Cleanliness good, room well appointed, not too much noise transfer between rooms. Plenty of pillows, good duvet, fine firm mattress, but not like a rock. Would happily stay again at the price.

My husband and I stayed here en route to holiday. The Holiday Inn was excellent as always; friendly staff, clean and comfortable room and, contrary to other reviews, we found the breakfast to be more than adequate with plenty of choice. Will definitely be back!

Having been my "2nd home" for around 10 years a change in work circumstances means I won't be back soon. Some different staff through the years, most with warm welcomes. Generally an undisturbed nights sleep and comfy beds since the refurb a couple of years back. Rates can be as low as £50 night at certain times of year. Overall... More

The hotel is well appointed and the staff are excellent and most helpful. The only drawback is the interruptions during the night from other guests returning the hotel noisily . When we stayes threre were three episodes that woke us up the latest being 5 am in the morning.

Easy to find, handy hotel on outskirts of Glenrothes, but the scrambled egg was pretty inedible, and a requested gf option never materialised. Handy for local park and friendly staff, so OK for a quick overnight stop off.
