Okay it's not five star BUT nowhere else will you receive good friendly service. Clean rooms. Good food for the price paid. Couldn't ask for more. Great value. Excellent location to visit other coastal resorts I. E. St. Andrews, Anstruther etc. Crail is a quaint village so a relaxing weekend is offered.

I am a regular customer of the golf hotel and we really love it. I went in with my girlfriend for tea on Saturday and it was very quiet, which is not the hotels fault as is it off season. Couldn't fault the waitress, she was lovely, but as we were sitting near the kitchen, we had the kitchen staff's...

Just returned from 2 nights and had a great time! Service was excellent, amazing breakfast and the Golf Hotel bar with an atmosphere any pub would aspire to. Throw in a gin trail , a quiz night and stunning coastal walks and it's pretty unbeatable! Thanks very much to the staff for such a great stay.

Stayed with friends one night following a bracing round of golf at Crail. The friendly and cozy atmosphere was just what was required to warm up after our 18 holes which we finished at dusk.

We spent two nights in the dog friendly Golf hotel and just loved it. I missed my flight home from a business trip which meant we could not check in until after midnight and it was no problem. We were cheerfully met and guided to our room. Next morning although breakfast was officially 8:00 am we needed to leave before...

I can only review the food and service in the restaurant as we were staying overnight elsewhere, but the two evening meals we had were good quality and well priced and the service was friendly and efficient.

A great place to pop into for a couple of beers. The barman was friendly and helpful and both beers I tried had been kept well and were presented equally well. The bar is quite small but this adds to the atmosphere. The locals were, in the main, very friendly.

We were on a golfing trip to St Andrews, and decided to stay here for 1 night, and to be honest it was a fantastic decision! The hotel is a wee bit "old fashioned" but this adds to its charm, and as we were 4 golfers in twin bedded rooms it very much added to our enjoyment of the trip....
