Bankhead House
Ranked #6 of 12 Leven B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 June 2013

This B&B was our favorite from our 10 day trip. The setting was tranquil and scenic, the room was spacious, comfortable and private and the breakfast was fresh and homemade. The owners are a hospitable couple who renovated the property themselves into the modern and airy b&b it is today. You definitely need a car to get here but the drive through the countryside is beautiful and Bankhead is marked with directional signs from the main road.

A beautiful house in an idyllic location- large spacious bedrooms, nicely decorated with great views. Sue & Len were great hosts- very friendly & extremely helpful. They stored our bicycles for us, provided refreshments on the lawn overlooking the Firth of Forth, made the arrangements for our evening meal out and even gave us a lift there. A good night's sleep in a comfortable bed followed by a quality breakfast topped our stay off- Would definitely recommend.

Hello, Thank you for sharing your thoughts, and it's lovely to see your pictures too. It was a lovely day wasn't it ! We hope your bike ride was successful, and that the weather was kind to you all the way. Come and play some golf next time, we've got some cracking courses around here.

My friend and I had a very relaxing stay in this attractive guesthouse. The bedrooms was very spacious with a beautiful view. We had a delicious breakfast and the hosts could not have been kinder. I would definitely recommend it to family and friends and hope to return myself.

I have stayed at the Bankhead House now twice recently on business travel with Diageo in Leven. Hands down amazing and convenient location. Wifi was great, very spacious room, and breakfast always superb. Sue and Len are delightful hosts as well. Can't wait to return again!

Lovely Guest House with delightful host situated in an outstanding location.
One of the most relaxing guest houses that we have visited. The hosts Sue and Len were most warm and friendly with their welcome to their superb house.

Room Tip: Both brilliant

Having read many reviews (and written a few) the majority of them give a good account of an establishment then near the end there is a "but" then the review says something negative. Having stayed here for two nights I can only say that this is an outstanding establishment in every area, service, value for money, location, etc but the icing on the cake is Sue and Len. Thank you for your welcome and making our stay such a pleasure and for running a no "but" establishment.

We spent a fantastic sunny February(!) weekend with Sue and Len at Bankhead Farm and were very very impressed. The quality of the accommodation and food was first class but the real stand out memory of our weekend was the way we were welcomed and pampered by our hosts. It really felt like staying with old friends. I'm sure anyone booking in here will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: We had a sea view which we appreciated.
