#4 of 8 B&Bs / Inns in Anstruther
Travellers' Choice
Described as "One of the treasures of the East Neuk," The Waterfront was proudly opened in May 2003, hosting a 55 seat a’ la carte restaurant. Personally run, The Waterfront has Anstruther’s finest location situated just a few steps from Anstruther’s harbour and marina with views over the Firth of Forth. During the warmer months we boast al fresco dining to the front and a mature courtyard for relaxing to the rear. We aim to cater for all tastes. Varied Seafood selections, chef’s specials, children’s menu, delicious coffee and cakes. The Waterfront seafood selection is surely there to impress boasting freshly delivered fish from local markets including oriental scallops, citrus salmon, stuffed sea bass, steamed mussels and a true Scottish favourite that has stood the test of time, good old Fish and Chips.

Only stayed one night. This place is better than the 3 stars. Lovely single room with ensuite. Clean, fresh and modern. Comfy and warm bed. Everything you need. Beautiful breakfast with a super choice. Great staff. Only stayed as a stop off en route but will come back for longer next time. Only tiny downside was patchy wifi. 1st thing in morning and in the evening it was slow. Dont let this put you off. Great guest house, with a lovely location.

Tried to cancel 1 week before due to getting covid. Not able to cancel, even tried to change to a different date but staff weren't very helpful. Just wanted the money. They told us to cancel through booking .com wich we did . They said they didn't hear from booking.com but they said they had contacted them. Wouldn't recommend them as not helpful

I don’t normally write reviews but felt I had to on this occasion. This hotel was a gem of a find. Our room was spacious, modern and clean with a kingsize comfortable bed. The staff were very friendly and helpful from the minute we got there. We had dinner in the restaurant last night and breakfast this morning and both were amazing. I would definitely return to this hotel and recommend it.
