Reviewed 29 August 2011

Dunedin we found to be a lovely, comfortable bed and breakfast. The room we stayed in we couldn't fault: clean, comfortable and contemporary. It met all our requirements to aid a comfortable nights sleep. Breakfast was excellent, beautifully presented and plenty of it, it more than set you up for the day. Both Les and Yvonne gave us a warm welcome and were happy to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. What Yvonne doesn't know about the local area isn't worth knowing - many thanks for your advise on places to eat and especially the information about the Fife coastal walks,we enjoyed every minute even if my feet were tired !!! Once again many thanks for everything, hope to see you again when we are in the area. If Paul has his way that will be sometime soon to complete more of the coastal walks !!!!

Dear andrea k,

Many thanks for your kind review of Dunedin - we're glad you enjoyed your stay with us and it's great news to hear you intend coming back to explore the wonderful attractions in the Kingdom of Fife.

Sorry to hear about your sore feet - the Fife Coastal Path will do that to you every time, but it's worth it! We hear this problem can be overcome by stopping off at some of the many hostelries en-route to sit in front of a log fire and sample some of their liquid refreshments - and the foods not bad either!!!

We look forward to welcoming you to Dunedin again soon.

All the best!

Yvonne & Les

Thanks to Yvonne and Les for being perfect hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were really impressed with the rooms and especially the breakfast! It was lovely to have such helpful owners who could recommend places to eat and a big thank you for storing our bikes as well.

We would definitely come back if we were in the local area.

My son, who stays in Kikcaldy, had booked us rooms as he was getting married locally. We were most impressed with the accomodation and the breakfasts on offer.
Central location. Very attentive hosts.
My mother enjoyed her stay.

Room Tip: Our room was facing street, large and airy with en-suite which was perfect. Towels changed daily.

Dear Thomas G,

Wow - that was one of the fastest reviews we have ever had - yourself, your wife and you mother-in-law stayed with us on the 19th & 20th August and your review was posted on the 21st!

Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to give us such a positive review. We're glad you liked the rooms and we're pleased the breakfasts met your expectation, particularly when during our chats you admitted to being a "bit of a foodie" and have even been on chef courses at college.

You were a pleasure to have stay with us and hope we see you all again the next time you come to visit your son.

P.S. Please pass our congratulations onto your son and new daughter-in-law.

Best regards

Yvonne & Les

During our Scotland roundtrip, we (couple with 16-year old son) stayed 2 nights in the Dunedin. This was our best B&B experience in Scotland! We liked the modern designed and very clean rooms, the excellent breakfast and the very helpful recommendations where to eat and shop and what to visit . Yvonne and Les were perfect hosts and we plan to visit the Dunedin in the near future to explore the coast north of Kirkcaldy (including St. Andrews) in more detail. The Dunedin is highly recommended!

Dear KlausRockster,

Thank you so much for your very kind review of Dunedin. To say we are the best B&B you have visited in Scotland is high praise indeed.

It was a pleasure having all three of you stay with us and we hope we helped wet your appetite for visiting the rest of Scotland's beautiful countryside.

We appreciate your custom and look forward to welcoming you to Dunedin soon.

One of the worst B&Bs I have stayed in. I was given a twin room which was fine, but there wasn't an ensuite and in order to go to the bathroom during the night I had to take my room key with me - ridiculous for a single woman on her own. The bathroom was of a very low standard - the tap was coming away from the sink and the shower only trickled out. According to the landlady I had adjusted the showerhead. This was untrue, and even when she had readjusted it the water still only seeped out of one side. Not good enough to have a decent shower in. Breakfast was a cold affair both in terms of atmosphere and the bacon, and the toast was like eating cardboard. Luckily it was only myself and my parents there because I would not have liked to share a table with a complete stranger. Loud banging woke me up at night - I don't know if it was other people coming into the establishment but whatever it was it was loud.

The only plus point was the information that the landlady gave us about Kirkcaldy. She is obviously proud of her town and gave us tips on getting out and about.

Definitely not worth the amount they are charging, unfortunately it was the only B&B that had vacancies at the time - I wonder why!

Room Tip: Don't accept the room without an ensuite - see general review for reasons why.

Dear Spookiepixie,
It would appear that we have disappointed you during your stay at Dunedin and if that is the case we apologise, but would like to respond to several comments:
When your father booked the rooms he was informed that one room had en-suite facilities and the other room (yours) had a private shower room. If you feel the lack of en-suite facilities was “ridiculous for a single woman on her own” you should have taken this up with your father who booked the room for you.
Your “bathroom” was in fact a private shower room just one step away from your bedroom door for your exclusive use. When you mentioned the shower didn’t work properly we immediately investigated and within seconds had the shower operating perfectly. We dispute the water “still only seeped out of one side”.
If your bacon was cold we can only apologise but did you mention this at breakfast? No. You were also offered fresh tea/coffee/toast on several occasions throughout breakfast but did you mention your “cardboard” toast at any time? No. This obviously did not spoil your appetite.
With reference to the “loud banging”: We only had you and your parents stay with us that evening (as your review pointed out) so we are at a loss as to exactly what it was you heard – particularly when we didn’t hear it.
We are very lucky at Dunedin to receive overwhelmingly positive reviews with many guests returning to stay with us on several occasions. We always try to make guests feel valued, appreciated and welcome, and accept constructive criticism in the spirit in which it is given – to improve what we offer our guests.
It is unfortunate that on rare occasions some guests seem unwilling to give us the opportunity to rectify any legitimate complaints at the time, preferring instead to voice their opinion on various forums where everyone can read it. Your review illustrates perfectly that you really can’t please all of the people all of the time – but we will keep on trying!

A fantastic find. Dunedin is definitely the best B&B we have stayed in anywhere. We were warmly greeted and then shown to an immaculate room. The decor was contemporary, but still felt warm and welcoming. Breakfast was excellent. The food was beautifully cooked and very tastefully presented. Yvonne was an attentive and very interesting hostess. We will certainly return on our next visit to Kirkcaldy.
