We always enjoy our meals at Garvock House. The hotel is immaculate and comfortable. Excellent service, food and friendly staff. Four of us had dinner recently, and the food was delicious. Rib eye steak was very tender and the venison was a triumph; tender and full of flavour. A pleasure to visit and we are already planning our next visit.

Delighted by absolutely everything - from the kind and welcoming staff, always smiling and happy to help - to the beds that were the most comfortable ever. Our brother got married here on Friday, the entire day ran so smoothly, the food was superb and for those of us who retired slightly early, the soundproofing between function suite and bedrooms...

In a town that has little choice of fine food the Garvock is the saviour consistently offering great food. Had our wedding there, lunches, individual dinners and group gatherings. Each and every time they have delivered on all fronts. Menus are varied and value for money. Lovely setting for good old fashioned dining. Staff are always friendly and can't do...

Second year for Christmas Day meal and it was amazing! I had the venison which was cooked to perfection - as were the vegetables. My wife had the turkey. Such a wonderful experience from start to finish - I cannot thank the staff enough. Looking forward to next year already.

Had a Festive Lunch here just before Christmas and enjoyed every bite of it!

Arrived at 12.50 for a 1pm booking. Finally got to a table at 1.50 after my daughter pointed out the time we had waited. Food was good but staff hard pressed to run all three rooms full of diners.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a delightfully elevated position in the ancient capital of Dunfermline - Garvock House sits proudly in over 2 acres of gardens, a glorious testimony to its hey day as a stunning family house. Truly 'the country house hotel in town.' Family owned and run, Garvock House has been transformed into a delightful hotel retaining an authentic and rather special country house charm and informality: relaxing and elegant with classic interiors, very comfortable furnishings and spacious rooms. And a passion for fresh produce which remains undimmed. Dunfermline hotels just don't come better than this. ... more   less
