We came to Kirkcaldy for a short midweek stay and are determined to come back to the Victoria Hotel at a later date for a longer one.
The Victoria is a smallish, comfortable hotel a short walk (ten minutes or so) from Kirkcaldy town center and the Kirkcaldy beach promenade. Rooms are small but comfortable. The hotel staff are extremely courteous and helpful. The food in the hotel is excellent: dinner there was surprisingly high-end for a place with such an old-fashioned feel, and the service was terrific. Breakfasts are generous, and "cooked" breakfasts featuring black pudding and haggis (if you really want them!) are included in the room rate. The hotel takes all the usual credit and debit cards (particularly Maestro, which is becoming increasingly useful for international travel). Meals and snacks are also served in the hotel bar.
Please note that because of its lack of elevators / lifts, and stairs to be climbed, this hotel isn't suitable for people in wheelchairs or with other similar physical-accessibility issues.
Something special to note: The Victoria Hotel was built by furniture-maker A. H. Macintosh for his family, who lived there from the 1860s until the 1940s. The public rooms of the hotel are full of beautiful examples of his (or his workmen's) carving, mostly done in golden oak, with every design unique. You can spend entirely too much time just staring at all this carved wood and wondering at the workmanship...
