Beautiful surroundings, views and accommodation. It felt just like staying with good friends as our hosts made us feel really welcome. We had two rooms, both exceptionally well furnished and maintained with excellent bathroom facilities. On both mornings breakfast was of a high standard and catered for all of our varied requirements. A really outstanding B&B!

One of the best B&Bs we have stayed in. We had a large room with a lovely view over the Firth of Forth. Comfortable beds. Excellent breakfasts, friendly welcoming hosts in Sue and Len. It's a lovely house in beautifully kept gardens. Bankhead House is situated in the countryside in a very peaceful location.

This is probably the best B and B we have ever stayed in. The location is superb being out in the country with stunning views over the Firth towards Edinburgh. Len and Sue made us very welcome into their home. Lots of superb golf courses a stone`s throw from there. Fantastic two night stay.

We stayed here for two nights. We were extended a really warm welcome and had a beautiful, spacious room. The bed and en-suite facilities were of an excellent standard and the breakfast was delicious. It was an ideal location for exploring the Fife coast and the owners provided helpful advice on things to do and places to eat.

Beautiful House with great views across the Forth. En-suite room spotless and very comfortable. Warm welcome by hosts. Superb breakfast. Observation: Credit card surcharge of £4.00 a bit much, after happily paying £80 for single occupancy one night, booking only the day before. I don't think this is stated on Booking .com or your website. Apologies if it is.

Thank you for sharing your experience of our lovely home, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. I would have appreciated you speaking to me directly about the credit card surcharge. It would have been simpler to explain the Booking.com issue face to face. Guests booking through an online travel agent receive a reservation summary email from my booking system (...
