This former tea house to Melville House has recently been renovated as a holiday accommodation. The three bedrooms are all nicely decorated and are en suite. The showers work nicely with good pressure, but the old plumbing pipes require loud macerators and the ventilation isn't sufficient. The double and single bedrooms are on the ground floor. The middle floor has the twin bedroom and a small kitchen while the top room is a windowless room with a sofa, two chairs and a dining table for four. The kitchen at this time includes the bare minimum of small pans and tools so cooking anything other than an egg and toast at breakfast is a challenge. That said, the manager was extremely friendly and accommodating. She brought over two of her own larger pans so that we could cook for five in the evenings and laundered the towels midweek, offering to throw a load of laundry in for us. The tv reception had not yet been sorted, but there was a selection of mostly children's DVDs. We were happy that we were there with good weather so we could sit outside rather than in the windowless sitting room up top. Our youngest loved that she could spend time in the elaborate treehouse near the main house. We did like the setting and the peaceful area and happily explored around Fife, Edinburgh and even Glasgow. All in all, the bedrooms were fine for sleeping, the people were friendly, the setting nice, but the windowless attic sitting room/eating area was not inviting and the lack of sufficient cooking tools for meal preparation was a disappointment. The property seems most suited for travelers who will spend most of the day offsite and eat out.
Stayed for a long weekend, Sarah and her family made sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. Lovely period house in beautiful surroundings.
