“Brilliant Bruce St”
Reviewed 26 August 2006

I have stayed for two weeks (weekdays only) in Rooms @ 29 Bruce St and have enjoyed a very comfortable, enjoyable time there (apart from having to work).

The rooms were very modern, very comfortable and well soundproofed with Air Conditioning units. The beds were fantastic, the most comfortable I have slept in ( I have been working away from home for three months, staying in around three different hotels a week) so this is not a one off. The bathroom was tiled and warm and the shower head when on its middle setting was almost like being massaged. 14" TV and DVD player was handy too.

If the rooms were brilliant the staff equally measured up if not moreso, and not just one or two, all of them - the receptionist, catering staff and cleaners. They all welcomed you but also remembered you and would say Hi genuinely. This made it a pleasure to stay there.

The hotel is attached to an Italian restaurant and is where breakfast is served, freshly cooked as you wanted it from the breakfast menu. The evening meals there were fantastic, all four of us agreed that it was very good food and about the best we had eaten, certainly since working away.

There is also a bar/nightclub next door which allowed you to charge to the rooms, it is a converted chapel but decked out in quite a modern way but retaining some original features. It had at least 7 large TV screens (2 projectors) showing sports, mainly football. Large sofas and easy chairs and bar stools. Again the staff were very good.
The fact that this hotel has this next door does mean that you can get revellers coming in late but the nightclub is only open on certain nights of the week and I am not going to complain about people having fun (but this could be a consideration for some people). There is also a night porter.

The hotel also has some links with local attractions and a gym (didn't get to use the gym but did go karting at knockhill - fantastic). It is very close to the shopping centre and I would also say it is a great place to stay to go sightseeing from.

I would point out that there is no parking there belonging to the hotel as it is a centre of town hotel and a pay and display car park has to be used at the back.

To sum up :
Rooms - Excellent
Staff - Superb
Food - Fantastic
Atmosphere - Ace

Stay There - you will not be disappointed.

My wife, 11 month old buy and myself stayed at 29 Bruce Street on the 18th of August 2006.

We arrived and did have problems parking. Although there was no dedicated parking for the hotel (Nothing unusual nowadays as there are so many cars in the city of Dunfermline and because of the nice old cobbled street), we eventually went round the block twice and got a space on the pavement. Next morning we were advised that there was a HUGE car park just round the back, so parking was not an issue at all, this could have been made clear on a reception notice to help us. In all we cant complain about parking because it was there.

On first view, the hotel was modern looking, nice and smelled very nice because of the integrated Italian resteraunt (Which happily also served as the breakfast room in the morning)

The staff were well turned out and extremely helpful, and i mean more helpful than an other hotel we have ever stayed in, 5*s there then.

There was a steep set of stairs leading up to the rooms, but there was a disabled room on the ground floor, so no issues there. In any case, the staff were more than willing to bring up an iron board, extra towels and everthing else we asked for, and as standard they were brought up to our room extra quick. The iron and board were modern and undamaged (Unlike the Sheraton Edinburgh irons, or the holiday Inn Edinburghs which were actually dangreous as they were damaged).

The bedroom was clean, with a DVD player and small TV which was easy to use. We felt that the TV and DVD were too high and hard to reach, they could easily have been situated on the smart writing and vanity desk. It was quite hard to look up all the time to see the TV.

The bed was big and felt great, just like in the photos we had seen of it.

The bathroom was nice and a pleasure to have a bath or power shower in. There was posh soaps and shampoo, and the towels were thick and luxurious.

The room had a standalone Air-Con unit, i guess because the window was not designed to be opened. It seemed that even with the Air-Con on, the room got far too stuffy after having a bath or shower. I think the window really must be converted to one that opens. We were advised that our room was only one of two that had non-opening windows, so next time we would just ask for one with a window that opened. The Air-Con unit utilised a hole in the wall for exhaust heat, the hole had simply been cut out, but the edges should have been smoothed off.

The breakfast was absolutely briliant, fresh and of good quality. The bread was good so too was the Scottish breakfast with local meats and produce used.

I note that the hotel has a night club joined on to it - although the hotel was sound proofed, we had a problem taking our sleeping baby from the car to the hotel without him waking up (It was so noisy out there). once inside, we couldnt hear anything.

I recommend this hotel to young trendy couples. Because of the sickness on the pavement down the side of the hotel / club leading to the carpark round the back, the noise outside the club and the two men kicking a police car outside the club, i do not recommend this hotel (At least on the weekends) to couples . singles with children, elderly (Unless again during weekdays and booking the bottom room) or those who feel threatened by loads of drunken loud yobs (Again probably just on weekends - We stayed there on a Saturday night). I do recommend it to trend couples and posh clubbers. Weekdays Monday to Thursday i guess i would recommend anyone.

  • Liked — Room serice, great food, friendly staff
  • Disliked — Location next to night club
  • Tips/Secrets — Go during the week, try the amazing real Italian Pizza

I've just arrived back from a weekend stay in this hotel. It is right in the middle of Dunfermline - so if you are visiting the city, it's really handy for everything. The hotel itself actually has it's own Italian restaurant and nightclub as well. On the Saturday night, we had dinner in the restaurant - my partner had an amazing steak, cook medium, just the way he likes it! We stayed for a few drinks in the bar, which seemed to be filling up as the night went on! The hotel staff were really helpful as well, anything we asked for was sent straight up to our room - no questions asked!

There are quite a few places to visit nearby. We walked down to the Dunfermline Abbey , which was a really lovely building, full of history! The large parklands nearby were georgeous, and I could not believe how tame the grey squirrels were! We don't have many in Northern Ireland, so I was surprised to see them come so close.

We also took a drive to Rosslyn Chapel, the famous location from The Da Vinci Code. The Chapel was beautiful - it was great to see the place where Tom Hanks was running around!

Anyway, we'll be returning to the area again soon, to visit some family, and as we've had such a good experience with this hotel, we'll go back to it on our next visit.

Happy travels!
