    Kingsbarns was a really nice place to stay. Very friendly and helpful staff.

    Our room was situated at the back and although it had a patio door, there was no view.

    It is a lovely spot and the hotel is small and friendly - the rooms are well appointed for such a small establishment..The food is good and well priced and it has a very nice relaxed atmosphere.

    The courtyard, which one of the rooms overlooks, could do with a bit of care and sprucing up.

    We had a lovely comfortable room on the ground floor with a private patio. This was chosen as this hotel is dog friendly. Fabulous bathroom with separate double sized shower and a bath with shower. A lovely hotel ideally placed between beach/countryside and world famous golf courses. Staff were all friendly and even looked after the dog.Walking distance to dog friendly beach - great walks up and down Fife coastal way.

    Was a bit more expensive than we normally pay for 1 night, but it was a birthday treat. Would try and get a better 'out of season' rate if going again.

    The location is great for interesting walks and visiting the local towns and villages

    The housekeeping left a lot to be desired,both internally and externally,the owners obviously have no interest in the maintainance of what could be a very nice place.bearing in mind we were in the most upmarket room in the hotel very disappointing

    A truly extraordinary small hotel. Friendly, helpful, engaging staff met every request and then some. Village of Kingsbarns and walk to beach out of a storybook. Very good food. Fun pub with mixture of locals and guests. Rooms spacious (for Europe) with all modern amenities. Perfectly convenient to St Andrews and other beautiful seaside villages. Memorable.

    Ok, if one has to note something, the alternate days only room cleaning.

    Perfect stay. Very welcoming. Cozy bar with lots of scotch. We needed an early breakfast and we were told "no problem". These little thing count and make for great stay.

    The staff could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable, even to preparing a special seafood meal for us. Food was of highest quality. Excellent recommended choice of wines, the house wine was most enjoyable.

  • Older travelers

    In a prime location for those who may wish to visit the Cambo Estate, golf on nearby links courses or walk sections of the Fife coastal path. Very nice and comfortable room and facilities. Breakfast excellent with open roaring fire.

    Single glazed windows in room over a very cold period made keeping room warm difficult and dinner menu somewhat limited and disappointing.
