Fife Arms is very understated. The rooms are old but very clean and comfortable. The hosts are extremely helpful and kind. I was originally skeptical but after staying there for 4 nights, I would go back in a heartbeat. The location is prime for Dufftown. There is a nice pub attached. The shower had good water temperature & pressure which...

Arriving kind of late in Dufftown, we were lucky to still get a room here. The room and bathroom were ok and we got a scotish breakfast. Overall it was a good value for money and we were happy to have a place to stay. The free wifi could have been promoted

After doing my reviews on our memorable all day bus trip celebrating my grandson's birth, I realised I had missed out reviewing our visit to the Fife Arms. This was a nice looking bar with as you would expect in this part of the world, a large array of whiskies amongst other drinks. There was a great atmosphere and despite...

Touring through whisky country with nowhere to stay, and found Fife Hotel. Does not look much from outside, but gave us large room, comfy bed, ensuite shower room, parking off-road right outside. I have never found a gun locker in my room before - not that I actually needed it! Great breakfast, welcoming staff. Excellent value stay, would stay here...

Stayed here with my family. The accommodation was exactly as expected. Our room was pristine clean & the heating was wonderful. Off road parking was easy & safe our car was just outside our room. Location was walking distance to a number of distilleries & a great pub nearby for dinner.

This is not the place for romantic weekends, but the ok standard rooms do have gun cabinets... Going with friends on a combined Speyside walking and whisky excursion tour, this was a good choice in the midst of the Capital of whisky. Breakfast of the traditional Scottish style, nothing fancy. Definitely value for money though! Wi-fi did not work in...

Central place to stay if you are going on the whisky tour. Dave who runs the place is great, and you get a great breakfast, everything from a full English, to a poached egg on toast, really nice. The rooms are large, and, with the heating on very warm. The whole place is clean but tired and needs some TLC....

We stayed in Dufftown because we did not want to drive after distillery tours. The place was ok. Nothing fancy at all. The room was large. We were the only ones staying there, so breakfast was to ourselves. The breakfast was ok, average. We figured since we were the only ones there that they would not mind if we stayed...

Fife Arms had a very friendly staff/ownership. Checking in and out was very easy, room was nice and private behind the building. It was clean and in good condition and a great price. The hot breakfast was delicious, highly recommend that instead of cereal!
