Stayed here twice now, had 2 different rooms and they were both very clean, modern and comfortable. Excellent value, especially as you have JD Weatherspoons for food and drink. Good shower, has the usual tea, coffee and biscuits, also still and sparkling water which was a nice touch.

Thank you for the kind review of the hotel, I can only apologise that the bar staff on the Saturday night were not quite up to scratch. I can not possibly say what happened, we will look into it. That is obviously not how we train our staff, but hope you will give us another chance to get it right More

Stayed one night here with my daughter. No problem getting a twin bedded room. Warm reception, and room was a cut above the standard economy hotel ones, with fluffy duvets, lots of tea and coffee and a good sized bathroom. Beds were comfortable and we both slept very well. The room was pleasantly decorated and clean. Usual good value Weatherspoon's... More

I booked this hotel through Laterooms.com after searching for accomodation close to Rothes halls Glenrothes. The hotel was very close to this venue. In fact a 10min walk.

A good quality Wetherspoons hotel in the centre of Glenrothes, next to the Bus Station and Shopping Centre. There are frequent buses to Matkinch Station 2 miles away from which regular trains run to Edinburgh Perth and Aberdeen with connections to the rest of the UK. The hotel was clean with comfortable beds, good shower and en suite facilities and... More

Thank you for your review, we do try to only use the adjoining rooms for people staying together if possible, however when we are full it can be unavoidable. A 20 minute wait is unacceptable and we will definitely do something about that, hopefully next time you stay you wont have these problems. More

Booked here for a Sunday night and were pleasantly surprised, after our initial disappointment from the outside, we thought Wetherspoons tended to take over old building and spruce them up but this was more like a old block of offices, very grey and shabby, we shouldn't have been concerned though, check in was a breeze and the rooms are spotless,...

We needed a one night 'cost effective' stop over on our way further North and this hotel fit the bill. The reason we chose this one rather than Holiday Inn Express for example was that we thought we could have a reasonably priced drink and food and simply walk upstairs to our bed. When we pulled up outside I actually... More
