We stayed overnight here as we were at a wedding in the hotel.we now wish we had stayed longer.we arrived early but still got into our room which was a great relief as we were going to get ready in one of our friends room.
Reception was very friendly and told us about the hotel etc.
The room was a modern clean and tidy with all the usual things available.
The wedding couldn't have went better as the owners had everything down to a T.
The meal was excellent andy we have heard that the meals are always good so we sill be back to see if the standards as we were told.

Last Sunday we decided to revisit this Hotel. We did not have a reservation but this was not a problem as a table was found for us. They also provided a carvery as well as a lunch menu for Sunday and as a change we went for the carvery.

This was not a mistake - the choice was really good and my husband went for the roast beef with all the accompaniments and I choose the roast gammon. The meal was excellent as usual and I would thoroughly recommend this option.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

Delighted to hear that you enjoyed your meal once again.Sundays can be very busy and it is safer to book although we do realise that this is not always possible and every effort is made to have a table available

We recently stayed at the Kingswood, having previously stayed further up the coast at Anstruther, as we wanted a couple of days within easy access of Edinburgh. This proved ideal, as Burntisland station is about five minutes along the road, with Edinburgh being a 40 minute train ride away along the picturesque coastal route. The hotel is attractive, painted white with gardens and a conservatory, and we received a warm welcome. Our room had a balcony with sea view, and on a good day it's possible to see the Royal Yacht at Leith. We had a four poster bed, which was very comfortable, and the bathroom had obviously been refurbished recently - all was spotlessly clean. We ate in the in the restaurant both nights, and found the food excellent. I am a particular fan of Clam Chowder, and this was very good indeed, as was the rest of the food we tasted. Breakfast was also to be recommended. The hotel decor seems a bit of a mish-mash of styles, and could do with updating, and If you want a flashy boutique hotel, it's not for you. However if you want somewhere which is comfortable, homely, clean and friendly with good food and caring staff then you'll love it. We did.

Room Tip: Room with balcony and seaview is really nice

We had a lovely night in a four poster room with balcony. The room and bathroom were spotless. We were dinner bed and breakfast and everything we had was tasty and piping hot., the steak were a treat :) The staff and very friendly and professional and the gift shop was a real find - lovely and very reasonably priced. The hotel restaurant seems to be popular with its set price 2 course meals which are excellent value. Well worth a visit !

Coming all the way from Australia, the week long stay to Scotland needed to be somewhere homely & central to some of the outstanding places to visit, all being within a short distance from the location.. The Kingswood Hotel offered us everything, Booking in at reception & the friendly warm welcome, we immediately knew we had made the right decision. The room was a good size, light, warm & welcoming, the view across the Firth Estuary to Edinburgh was amazing. We slept really well, the bed was extremely comfortable with extra blankets & pillows available. We opted for full board & was not disappointed. The breakfast menu had a good selection & was served by friendly & informative staff. a simple question of "what are you doing today" was perfect during the serving of the meal, as the staff came up with a comprehensive list of "things to do". Their Local knowledge proved to be a blessing, the Historic Royal Palaces,Castles & country walks were fantastic & have left us with wonderful lasting memories. In the evenings, it was wonderful to reflect on the days events whilst seated in the lovely Restaurant deciding over the excellent Dinner Menu. The Kingswood has a great Chef, the food was "truly yummy". The chats with the Hotel Owners & staff was something that made us feel " really special". Being so far from home, this was just what we wanted, Excellent Value, great food, friendly & helpful staff, great location. We will defiantly come back again & will highly recommend this "Scottish Gem" to our Aussie friends. Well done to the Kingswood Hotel !!.

Room Tip: All front facing rooms have the Great views over the Estuary, some have private balconies.

Although the hotel was friendly, very clean and value for money, it just wasn't for us. The biggest problem the fact not only was there a road, but a railway line outside the front of the hotel. We didn't sleep very well at all as we had to open the window as the heating was on so high. Our friends slept better as they had a room on the back, but had a very uninspiring view over the bins etc. The fact we didn't sleep, spoilt what would have been a positive experience. The hotel does seem popular with locals who seem to love the "high tea".

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us in February,we were very sorry to hear that you did not sleep particularly well. During the cold winter months in order to try and ensure our guests are comfortable the bedroom heating wasindeed on constantly, however all of the bedroom radiators are thermostatically controlled and can therefor be turned down or off by guests who prefer a cooler environment.
We were a little puzzled by your comments about the bins as it is impossible to see our bin cage from any of the guest bedrooms.
