Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Four of us went to the restaurant for a family Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day. We were very disappointed by the standard of the food, The restaurant is normally first class so that is why we were disappointed, therefore giving you a 2. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive and friendly but the food,especially the main course, was poor.None of the food seemed freshly prepared. The turkey, stuffing and vegetables seemed to be from tins and packets. There were not enough sprouts and no gravy boat on the table which we were expecting. Lastly, we want to say that for the price that was paid, the meal was not upto the expected standard.

Stayed here overnight 2/3 rd December with friends to celebrate my cousins 70 th birthday and was extremely angry embarrassed and disappointed by the accommodation.One of bedside lamps didn’t work and remaining bedside lamp and standard lamp had damaged shades.The mattresses on both beds were old and lumpy as were the pillows…disgusting!.Food was not up to standard of a 4 star hotel and in my opinion this hotel is struggling to be 3 star.

We stayed for 2 nights in an executive suite. The suite was very nice with a lovely view of the bay. Spotlessly clean with good tea and coffee and shortbread. We used the pool and sauna/steam room which was very nice. Communal changing rooms but plenty of lockers and cubicles. The cold shower is a nice touch for coming out the sauna is a nice touch. Member of staff at pool reception was very friendly and helpful, didn’t catch his name. Breakfast was excellent with a decent continental selection and nice hot options. My wife had the smoked haddock both mornings and said it was lovely. Staff at breakfast were lovely. We had dinner in Horizons on our second night and the food was fabulous. Big portions and very good value for money. Lovely evening views of the bay. There was a wedding on that night but we were not disturbed in any way by the music even though our suite was quite close to the wedding venue. Irene at reception is a great asset to this place, she is so friendly and cannot do enough to help or make you feel very welcome. We really enjoyed our stay and would come back again. Kirkalcdly is not far to drive for some shopping and Burntisland is a nice wee place for a wander. The Crown pub is good for a drink and the locals and staff are very welcoming.

Hmm. Room we had didn’t match the photos. Downstairs in the dark with no lift. Clean and tidy. Great train service into Edinburgh within 1 mile. Continental Breakfast really good however cooked breakfast average. Coffee terrible. Might be just my preference. Hotel is very aged and bed needs replacing.

I am unsure in regards to your comment about the room doesn't match the photos. Our Premier Deluxe Rooms are located downstairs and the photos attached the room type are correct. Our cooked breakfast is cooked to order and we use local butchers for the produce, I am sorry you found this average. We will look in to your suggestion regarding the beds.
