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.

Stayed here June 2021, on arrival it seemed nice. Went to room, very basic but all that was needed seemed to be there. Went to lounge to eat, food was good but staff limited due to Covid. Room had dated furniture but that wasn’t a problem. Nice bed and linen, room just lacked some tlc. Sleep wasn’t great due to noise from other rooms, walls were very thin. Room very light as curtains were thin and large gap under door let in light all night. In the morning the water pressure was terrible, shower was literally non existent. We booked B&B with no mention of any change at booking and was given a paper bag from reception with a few things (no choice) with probably totalled around £2.50 at a push and had paid £7.50 a head with no hot drink etc and was very disappointing. I questioned this but was not offered any reimbursement.

Hi Julie, Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback following your recent stay with us. We love to hear from our guests and do take all comments on board. We understand your disappointment at breakfast not being our usual buffet offering. Following on from government guidance on restrictions that the hospitality industry must comply with we have been unable to provide the breakfasts that our guests have been used to and enjoyed at the Adamson in the past. The hospitality industry has been hit very hard by the restrictions and we only ask that our guests are patient and understanding where changes have to be made to keep everyone safe. We do hope to return to the buffet offering as soon as we are allowed to and would love for you to give us another chance in the future. Thank you again for letting us know about your stay with us. Kind regards The Adamson Team

Had an overnight stay here with friends to celebrate a birthday ( bit late in writing the review) it was a beautiful so ŵe sat in the beer garden for most of the afternoon then had a lovely meal in the restaurant all reasonably priced then moved to the bar for drinks.
Hotel room was lovely, large famIly room with seating area o ground floor overlooking the car park. Nice bathroom,comfy bed the only negative was the door outside our room leading along the corridor it slammed shut so every time someone went along the corridor we got disturbed by the door banging this happened umpteen times during the night and again early morning

Would return to the hotel just not that room unless they’ve fixed the door

Two of us stayed at the Adamson Hotel on a Saturday night during September. We booked well in advance and paid £85 upon arrival - this was for the hotel stay only, no breakfast or dinner included

The hotel has ample free parking and is a 5 minute drive away from amenities such as a Tesco and a petrol station. Edinburgh is a 40 minute drive away, and Dunfermline is a 20 minute drive away

The hotel looks modern from the outside and has a beautiful reception area. We checked in immediately upon arrival and the receptionist was friendly

We were allocated room 111. Although small, the room was clean and modern, although it could have done with a lick of paint. The bathroom looked newly renovated and was clean. The window in the room wouldn’t close, which didn’t make us feel safe (or warm!), so we were allocated the room next door. This room smelt of cannabis throughout our stay despite trying to air it out. The shower also took a long time to heat up. We didn’t want to move rooms for the second time

Overall, our stay at the Adamson Hotel was okay. It was an ideal location for what we needed, and the price is great, however our stay was let down by having to move rooms and then smelling cannabis every time we walked into the reallocated room. I would stay here again in the hopes we had a better experience

We stayed for one night, as a stop over on our way to the Highlands. First of all, in the hotel’s favour, the staff were all pleasant and friendly. The room itself was basic, a bit wobbly and not very well put together, the shower had little pressure, but it was spotlessly clean.
That’s the end of the good unfortunately. When we arrived, a 60th birthday party was just getting underway. It happened that our room was located above the bar. This meant the DJ for the party, plus the excited laughter and shouting, might as well have been in our room. It was so loud, we could hear every word the DJ said and sing along to all the songs (Kenny Rogers, anyone?) Not to worry, the DJ announced he was wrapping up his set and finishing at midnight. Sure enough, with the Looney Tunes “That’s All Folks” at dead on 12:00, we breathed a sigh of relief, that we would still manage a few hours sleep before our early start and long drive in the morning.
Our relief turned all too quickly to utter despair however, when the bar downstairs ramped up its stereo system and started spitting out banging tunes at a volume at least comparable to the disco. This went on until 02:45am. By which time, we were utterly fed up. So imagine our horror when two “well lubricated” gents then decided to stand directly under our window and have a prolonged and heated discussion, very loudly, about the petrol shortage crisis and the merits of Brexit. I’m sure each one has a valuable and relevant point, but by this time, it was almost 4am and my patience had worn very thin indeed.

Move onwards to 7am and our alarm going off. We shuffled around like extras from a Zombie film and made our way to our car. The man at the bar/ reception asked if we would like breakfast and we declined, he assured us that was the correct decision, leaving us only to guess what horrors would have been available if we’d had an appetite.

Suffice to say, we won’t be back. You couldn’t pay us enough to return. It was absolutely dire. Please, please, if you do one thing after reading this, make it be to book the Best Western, or the Travel Lodge a couple of miles up the road. Trust me, you’ll thank me later!

I fell in love with this hotel and its staff. Check in was very smooth. I stayed in the executive double room number 106, and found it very comfortable.

The room size is 172 feet², has a En suite bathroom, Flat-screen TV & Free WiFi

The private bathroom comes with: Free toiletries,
Toilet, Bath or shower, Towels, Hairdryer & Toilet paper.

The entire unit located on ground floor

Entire unit wheelchair accessible. It has linen, tea/Coffee maker, Iron, Heating, Fan, Carpeted, Electric kettle, Desk, TV Satellite channels, Radio, Flat-screen TV, Socket near the bed & Clothes rack.

The shower was exceptional. I rate it at 9/10. This accommodation more than met my expectations for the money. I have paid double the amount of money for a room before and have not had this satisfaction. My room was spotless with only a few blemishes on the carpet. My room was situated on the ground floor facing the car park, but this did not bother me, because the sound proofing by the windows were very effective. I slept very well, the bed very comfortable. If you want a quiet room I highly recommend that you book a room at the back, it is much quieter than the front because it does not face the main road. The windows are that good, that it cuts a lot of the traffic noise out, so even if you get a room at the front, facing the main street, the noise levels will be subdued.

The room has tea/coffee making facilities and comes with biscuits.

Wardrobe space was sufficient for me but more space may be required if one is travelling with a huge amount of wardrobe as a couple.

Breakfast was very good rated at 8/10 in my opinion which is very good. I had exceptional service from a member of staff who served me named "Inga" From Lithuania. She really made a huge part of my vacation awesome.

The staff here are 10/10

This hotel made me feel so relaxed and comfortable it was very healing for me.

Access to this hotel is no problem if you don't drive. Bus 8A and other buses drop you right outside of the hotel. I came in from Edinburgh bus station and caught another bus to Dunfermline bus station, then a number 8A bus to the Adamson hotel.

This hotel in my opinion has huge potential and has building work in progress.

I will definitely be back again. I made a detailed video which I am editing and will release on YouTube. Just look out for Adamson Hotel on YouTube by Mid Feb 2023. I can't put any links on here.

Give this hotel a go, you will love it. What a bargain and great value for money. A laptop safe is needed in the room and a fridge to keep your water or drinks cool for after hours when the bar is shut.

I will be back in 2023

Stayed here for one night while working in the area. Really nice hotel with a boutique feel. Staff very helpful and friendly and the best fish and chips I've had in a long time! Rooms are fresh with everything you could need including a very modern bathroom with a double walk in shower. Lovely outside garden area to enjoy a drink or two and plenty of free parking. What's not to like. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We came in with my elderly mother for food the food served was not bad could be better and presented much cleaner on the plates. The main issue we had was your receptionist Naomi - rude, unhelpful and could barely crack a smile and only reason I knew her name was the person she was moaning with said her name a few times. Really unprofessional and disgusting way to talk about people especially when the restaurant was fairly busy not exactly quiet. Even when my mother spoke to her she could barely muster two words together as if it was some sort of issue we were there. Personally would return to the hotel for more food as I said before that wasn’t bad but as for the welcoming from the receptionist I wouldn’t bother if I seen her on the desk again. The hotel itself is lovely the owners seem to have invested heavily in a new look and it suits well.

Your get what you pay for. Can’t understand the terrible reviews. £44 1adult 1child with breakfast. Twin room in old part of hotel.
Hotel is nice, lounge area pretty, ample parking, lovely outdoor seating area. Halls look to be newly painted.
Positives:
Room 224 was good size as was bathroom. Towels nice and bed comfy. Tea/coffee making facilities and TV. No issues with water power good decent shower. Breakfast was a buffet, hot and cold items, ample choice, no issues at all. Hairdryer fixed to wall, all be it, it’s no where near a mirror, so you can’t see what you’re doing when drying your hair lol. Handing storage fitted too.

Negatives:
I did have to ask for clean sheets as there were stains on one bed. Was alarmed at lack of bed protector sheet, but none the less bed was changed and comfy.
The carpet had big stains, and there were marks on all the walls, toilet roll holder was broken, bathroom mirror surround cracked, radiators full of dust, and shower tray fills right to top when showering issues with drainage by looks of it.
None of this put us off.
Cleaners clearly don’t move the kettle desk lots of debris down back of it when looking for a socket for my hairdryer.
We had a brilliant sleep, the staff were lovely and if required I would use this place again.

All of the small negatives could be fixed quite easily with a bit more attention paid when cleaning, a radiator duster, a quick vax on carpet, a screw driver for toilet roll holder and drain unblocker I’d think.

Nice place for price, have stayed much worse and paid much more.

Lovely little family run hotel in Crossford just outside Dunfermline, cost half the price of a city centre room and I was automatically upgraded from a single room to a very comfy double with a big walk-in shower and super heated towel rail.........thank you for that, shows good business practice. Toiletries and a hairdryer were provided as was a tea and coffee tray with biscuits. The room was clean and warm, there was an additional radiator but I never used it. My room faced the front road but there was very little noise, the windows are high up and quite small so maybe this reduced the sound. Wifi was good, much better than chain hotels, was able to easily download a couple of films for my onwards journey. I didn't sample breakfast or evening meals but the restaurant always seemed very busy which is a good sign. Also I didn't have my own transport but there were plenty buses going into Dunfermline and beyond, I never had to wait more than 5 mins for one. If you are looking for a comfy place to visit Dunfermline and surrounds and don't want to spend a fortune then I would definitely recommend the Adamson.

Lovely, clean hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Even though we are in Covid times they took the initiative to clean the rooms daily, which is something that other hotels have not done. The village is charming; it's a great base to use for day trips in the area. There are bus stops right outside the hotel.

Good afternoon, Our rooms do not come with hairdryers unfortunately but we do keep a handful down at reception for guests requiring them during their stay. So you are more than welcome to ask a team member on the day for the use of one. Kind regards Hannah

We booked in at 1200, as our wedding at Keavel was at 2.30, there was no issues with that. Regards the walk, it is within walking distance but not recommended, bearing in mind you will have your glad rags on, and normally those shoes are not made for walking long distances, we got a taxi, £5 for the journey there and at 10.30pm it was the same price.
