“Good for Food”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

This is an old Kirkcaldy favourite. We went for lunch to see if things were still the same. Yes - good food at reasonable prices, with attentive service in the lovely wood-panelled dining-room. We chose from the day's specials - sole in batter, and poached salmon salad, at £6.75 each. Generous portions at those prices. Glad to see standards are keeping up!

My sister and I were going to a Wedding in Kirkcaldy and we chose this Hotel and were very impressed with the service we received.This is a family run business which could be felt from the moment we arrived. The receptionist was so kind and friendly and took time to tell us the information we needed to know as was the staff. The rooms we were allocated suited all our needs. They were very nicely decorated and very clean and we were given clean towels everyday. The meals were of a high standard we lacked for nothing in that regard. It seemed to be very popular even with locals who just came for a meal. We really enjoyed our time there and would certainly return.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.

Arranged a family wake there and was advised cash only and on the day catered for 50, on day 80 turned up but no extra food supplied only uncooked sausage rolls, 2 plates of small sandwiches per 8 people, and cheap chocolate biscuits and shortbread. Attrotious service no tea or coffee for half an hour. Definately won't be going there again or recommending this hotel.

I booked into this hotel ,as I was working in Kirkcaldy, and it came highly recommended by the
my other colleagues who have used it in the past. It was sold to me as a very friendly place
with excellent food and clean ,tidy rooms.
I wasn't disappointed.......... The staff seem to have the can do will do attitude lacking in many
places these days, and not just in hotels. There was a pleasant, friendly atmosphere in the bar
area,and I was made feel part of the conversation with the few regulars. Many seem to return time after time, and know all the staff on a first name basis.
There was a decent menu to suit all pockets. I had chicken maryland from the high tea menu
with enough cakes to feed a family..........
Well done all the boys & girls at the Victoria, i'll see you all again soon....... (keep a chocolate snowball for me !!)

Would not stay at this hotel again. It needs a visit from the hotel inspector. Dirty curtains dirty head board dirty tea cups dirty window ledges even the fire extinguishers were dusty. The staff tried to say that the hotel was not dirty but after all the items above we're shown they agreed. Not staying there again.

Currently staying here whilst on business in the Kingdom. Booked this at last minute and phoned since website said they were full. The girl who answered the phone was fantastic, she found me a room, didn't moan when I said 3 nights please with the chance it might be 5, and was generally great.

Arrived Sunday night at about 6pm to be told on a Sunday there is no dinner, only high tea and only until 7pm. What a result, £10.85, main course, tea, toast, scones and 5 cakes for one person, deeeeelicious.

Monday, brekkie, simply great, the sausages are amazing, good set up for the day. Then it started. Went out to work for the day and came back after. Sat in the bar for an hour or so and was given the a'la carte menu. Treeeeemendous. The venison was to die for, the profiteroles even more so. This place is fantastic. The food is first class.

Oh, forgot about the room. Here on my own, got the family room, a double and a single bed, perfectly comfortable, spotlessly clean and quiet. Not boutique or mega modern but hey you're only sleeping in it. It works so don't fix it.

Staff. In hotels where you have guys that are getting worked to death for minimum wage you expect nothing. Not here, from the receptionist, Carol, lovely lady who deserves a pay rise, to Luigi, the maitre'd, yes maitre'd in kirkcaldy, to Esad, the Egyptian waiter, Susan and Gemma, the barmaids, everyone of them deserve a medal, wonderful service, friendly as anything and a laugh to the bargain .

Overall, excellent place to stay with fantastic food
