Lovely rooms. Clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. Great base for the wedding we had at Balbirnie House. Adjoining Weatherspoons provided very good meals and we had a super pre-wedding night out. Thoroughly recommended.

Stayed here on many occasions. Comfortable rooms always. The pub downstairs has plenty of inexpensive food and drink to offer. Occasionally it can be a problem parking in the car park. A nice touch is the free biscuits in the room.

This is the third Wetherspoon hotel I have stayed in and again pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean and modern, the prices were great compared to local hotels and the staff were great. There isn't much around the hotel in the way of good restaurants etc but the hotel itself was perfect for my business trip. Even though Thursday was...

Went here for a meal with my sister and the food is very well priced. You don't have a long wait on your food coming out. And we both had steaks which were delicious. Nice relaxing atmosphere nice place to go for lunch or dinner would definitely recommend

Stayed for one night. Very friendly staff. Large clean comfy room. Would recommend to anyone traveling in Fife. I would rate it four star plus. The Wetherspoons restaurant was disappointing. The prices are great but they must have been understaffed as the tables needed cleaned and dishes removed.

We stayed one night for a wedding nearby and had no expectations as to its standards given its price and also we were hardly going to be there. I have to say this was one of the best budget hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff were really friendly and prepared a room early for our arrival. Our room...

Rooms well above what you'd expect for the money. Not normally a 'Wetherspoons' visitor, but ended up eating in the bar below the hotel both nights and had two breakfasts there too. Not haute cuisine but perfectly acceptable and great value.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night only, booked 2 rooms side by side. Good nights sleep had by all. Many thanks to Claire (reception) who was always happy to help. Never had a problem but ask for rooms nearest the lift for a peaceful nights sleep.
