We stayed at the Garvock House Hotel for a friend's wedding. No doubt they will expand upon the hotel's rating as a wedding venue - I will stick to its performance as a hotel.

The hotel is clearly a premier venue in the area - it was noted as such by our taxi driver, who said that he and his friends always used it for special occasions.

The welcome/check-in at the hotel was polite and efficient, if not overly warm. No porter was offered to take our bags - some may wish to note this if they have rooms upstairs as we could not find any lift. Our room was comfortable but some way from 5-star - I would describe it as high-end Travel Inn. There was no airconditioning (excusable in Scotland, perhaps) and we were unfortunate, in that respect, to stay during one of the hottest days of the year - the room was quite stuffy because of this.

However, the hotel had a number of very good points. The staff were generally excellent, especially one charming hotel receptionist and the Portuguese bar/breakfast staff. The breakfast itself was terrific (offering Scottish classics as well as more international favourites like pancakes with bacon, and eggs benedict) and served in a beautiful room.

The grounds of the hotel are also very nice, and it was a pleasure to chip and putt on the hotel's front lawn, which had a number of practice golf holes for the purpose.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to friends visiting Dunfermline. It is not, however, without need of some improvements in order to make it into a 5, or even truly a 4, star hotel.

Thank you for your feedback - we appreciate you taking the time to let us have your comments. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay overall and thank you for letting us know about the areas where you think we can improve.

As you rightly point out, lack of air conditioning in Scotland is rarely a problem as we aren't usually lucky enough to have such hot weather.

I hope that we might have the opportunity of welcoming you back to Garvock House at some point in the future.

The best place we stayed in all of Scotland. We adored our stay and they treated our young son very well. The city itself is interesting, but it is a city and very different from near the highlands where we had just come from, so for us It was an oasis in the city.

From a warm welcome on arriving to first class service all night, the food was high quality and very good value for money. We had haggis bon bons in tempura batter, and, venison and stornaway black pudding salad for starters, followed by sirloin steaks. The choice on the menu is well varied, making it hard to select what to pick Well worth a visit.

We stayed at the Garvock 25th-27th May as we were attending a friend's wedding nearby in Dunfermline.
Dunfermline itself is a pretty average town but drive into this hotel and it's as if you have stepped into a different world.
The check in offers the classic Scottish friendly welcome, the grounds are beautiful with great views over to iconic Forth Bridges.
Our room was a standard double and was truly lovely. The room had a glass of champagne, Scottish shortbread and a tumbler of whisky waiting for us. Bright, quiet, airy and superbly comfortable beds, we had great nights sleep on both occasions.
The breakfast was great, served in an olde world room with excellent service. One thing it did lack was the traditional lorne sausage, small point but I couldn't wait to eat one!
I really do love this hotel. It is the attention to detail that counts and it's obvious from the moment you drive in that real dedicated care and attention has been invested in the place.
Highly recommended
This is a great place to explore some of the finer areas in Scotland.
The drive to the Forth Bridges are quick, with South Queensferry being a lovely spot. I would also recommend the village of Falkland as a great place to spend some time, beautiful.

We had our wedding here in June 2012 and the venue, staff and food were excellent. The hotel is set in fantastic grounds that make it feel secluded even though the hotel is quote near Dunfermline town centre. We stayed overnight as part of the wedding package and the room was fantastic and the pancakes the next morning at breakfast were delicious! The staff are excellent, friendly and efficient yet unobtrusive. We've been to the hotel many times for Sunday lunches and dinners and the food never disappoints. Apart from throwing out our remaining wedding cake because it had been cut, I have no complaints about this hotel and would thoroughly recommend it for a wedding or meal (just be clear you want your remaining wedding cake back!)
