3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

We visited King Malcolm after driving all day and needing a place to stay without a reservation. We were able to obtain two rooms that were basic and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. We also met some great people at the nearby attached pub during the Scotland vs. England football game as well.

After an extremely long day we arrived at he hotel and they had given us a twin room instead of a double, I went to reception to ask to be changed and the woman on reception didn't apologise and proceeded to huff and change the room. The new room was a double but only had one towel so I rang reception to ask for another and again NO apology! Web had dinner in the hotel and the food was awful! Completely tasteless and exceedingly expensive for what it was! When you pay £16 each for a main course u don't expect to have to lace it with salt and pepper so it has at least some taste! The hotel was clean and the beds were comfortable but the service is appalling and quite frankly the staff are ignorant! I won't be staying here again!

I travel all over the world with my work. This hotel was shocking! They tried to fob us off with single beds when we booked double! Showers were cold! Rooms 80s decor very dated! Sheets were a grey brown colour not white! Breakfast staff rude spoken and treated like school children! One day we had a full menu and next told help yourself to all they could be bothered to put out! Rudely told i couldnt have a full english as i was in scotland! Shocking place and all for £107 per night inc breakfast! Terrible place!

Enjoyed a 2 night stay. staff v friendly & helpful especially man on reception. We were given a free upgrade to an executive room Which was very clean with a comfortable bed. Bathroom fine with an excellent shower. Had breakfast each morning which was very nice especially the fried bread!!! Would recommend.

Only stayed here 1 night, here are my quick observations. The outside of the hotel looked a little dated, however inside was fine and when I booked in at reception I was told that I had a double room rather than the single that I had booked. This was excellent, the room itself was fine, the double bed was particularly comfortable. The bathroom was adequate the shower which was on mixer taps was easy to operate and worked well. Breakfast was good without being outstanding. The black pudding which came with my English breakfast was very good, not the rubbish you find at some places. The hotel suited my 1 night stay, and the following day when I wanted to pop into Edinburgh the park and ride at Ferrytoll was very near. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the King Malcolm for 3 nights as I was attending a course in Dunfermline. My room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. Breakfast and dinner were included and were very nice. Staff were mostly friendly and helpful, especially on reception and I enjoyed my stay. Wireless connection in my bedroom was good.

Stayed June 2013, travelled on business
