Hotel lounge nicely decorated and comfortable to sit in. Staff really friendly. Room was lovely with own balcony and clean. We stayed had lunch on arrival which was delicious and we were hoping for good things for dinner but this is where it went downhill, soup was like water and tasteless, sea bass was overkill with olives and spinach mixed on it with a sauce. Breakfast was also a big let down, we were waiting on our yogurt and cereal when they came with our hot food. Scrambled egg was the worst I have ever been served and looked like yellow rubber with way too much pepper.Should have sent it back but lost my appetite after attempting a few bites. On checking out, drinks charged to room were not individually itemised with just payments against lunch and dinner so it is difficult to keep tabs on what was accurate so wouldn’t recommend that option.

Dear jackihig. Thank you for taking the time to submit your review of us here at the Kingswood Hotel & Tall Trees Restaurant. I am delighted you found the hotel to be of a high standard and of course welcoming whilst I have passed on your kind comments to my team. I am saddened to hear that you found our Dinner & Breakfast offering as a 'let down' and have of course brought this to the attention of our Head Chef where he will look into this further. In relation to the billing of accounts, this is how we operate but I do understand not all hotels do so in such the same way, however as the accounts state a simple total, we are of course always happy to present our guests with detailed receipts in order to reconfirm all charges should they be requested, we don't hide anything. Thank you again for your review. David A Rushforth | Hotel Manager

We just had a 1 night stay here to break our journey and found everything to be excellent. We had a seaview room - room itself quite small, but spotlessly clean and had everything we needed - with a small balcony with a table and 2 chairs. We had dinner in the restaurant which was really good as was breakfast the following day. Breakfast had a great choice and was all very tasty. The waiting staff were all very friendly too. In fact the young man (I can't remember his name unfortunately) was just so lovely that we gave him a small tip on leaving and he was so pleased with it that it made our day to see his face! He was really surprised and said it was the first time that anyone had done that! If we are in the area then we would definitely stay here again. We didn't sit outside, but there was an area outside where you could eat and drink which looked lovely too.

Last minute booking on the day and what luck we had! Had room 15, their last available, which is in a separate part of this interesting building, own staircase & balcony with a larger than average room, good bed and long bathroom. All the staff friendly & pleasant (as they should be but how often is it not the case?) from David who steals the show, the owner who really cares about how you’re doing to their new waiter, nervous but obviously being well trained. Food is a good mix of Scottish favourites including very good venison and breakfast also worth getting out of the comfy bed for. Having booked a room in Perth but turned up to a more than disappointing hotel Kingswood was a breath of fresh air, literally with the Firth of Forth on the doorstep and metaphorically with the owners, staff and facilities. Please give this family owned hotel a try if you’re anywhere near. Would have taken a photo of the Firth but waited until breakfast when it was misty.

Friendly staff, older hotel but with modern touches .. new bathroom, modern decor. Had evening meal here and it was lovely. Salmon to start, Fresh haddock meal and ice cream for dessert, really lovely and fresh … great view across the water from the room … only pointers, the bed was ok but not overly comfortable and the lock on the room door was a bit shaky and didn’t seem to want to lock sometimes …. Good location just outside town centre of Burntisland …. Enjoyed our stay … quirky friendly clean hotel 😊

We have just returned home after a very relaxing weekend away at this lovely family run hotel. Right from check-in, we were made to feel so welcome and were greeted by Kathryn, the owner, who took us up to our room personally and provided all the information we needed re the restaurant, bar, shop and breakfast times etc. We had booked a room with a sea view and balcony (room 5) and the room was spotless and very comfortable with patio doors leading out to the balcony. And boy what a view to wake up to - looking out across the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh. Gorgeous! We had booked dinner for both Friday and Saturday nights and everything we ordered was delicious and of excellent quality as was the wine which went down a wee treat! Breakfast was hot, tasty and plentiful - perfect for setting you up for the day. All areas of the hotel were lovely, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The hotel has a well maintained garden area out front and a public balcony area on the first floor for guests to sit in and enjoy the views and is situated in a lovely spot leading out of Burntisland and heading towards Kinghorn with lovely walkways along the coast either all with stunning views too. The icing on the cake with this hotel is the staff. They were all so genuinely cheery and friendly and also very professional and nothing was too much trouble for them. Particular mention to Mark behind the bar who looked after us and sourced some Limoncello for me after dinner and last but no means least David, the Manager, who as well as working his socks off (one minute he would be managing reception then the next he would be working in the restaurant) always took the time to have a chat with guests and a wee banter too. Thank you for everything David and for looking after us!! A wee visit to the shop area round by reception is also advised as it stocked some lovely wee items and gifts. Would definitely recommend a visit to this wee gem of a place and we will definitely be back.

Hello Maureen. Thank you so much for taking the time to submit your review of us here at the Kingswood Hotel & Tall Trees Restaurant, we really do appreciate you taking the time to do that. I am super delighted that right from the very start, our lovely Owner Kathryn made you feel like you were at home, this is most certainly how we wish all our guests to feel, after all, it's our home so should be yours also. Oh wow, room 5, one of my firm favorites I must say, the view is just stunning isn't it! Maureen I'm just overwhelmed by your review, normally such positive reviews make my week but yours has made my month if not year. I have passed your comments onto Mark and as for myself, I enjoy my job xo much that sometimes I forget I'm actually managing the hotel lol. Once again, thank you so so much for your review, it really does mean allot to myself & the team. I hope to be able to welcome you back soon and now that I know you love room 5, of course I'll do my best to accommodate you in this room. Many thanks & hugs, David
