Positive Reviews

Friendliest hotel

Many guests say that The Gilvenbank in Glenrothes, UK, is the friendliest hotel they have ever stayed at. The staff members' right from the reception, to housekeeping and bar are super friendly and helpful. They say they loved their stay and will be back soon for a re-visit.

Excellent service

Guests who are at the hotel to attend weddings again commend the service and speak of the housekeeping staff as unsung heroes. They say the actual grounds of the hotel are merely practicable but what it does not have in landscape and attraction, the reception and bar staff make up for by their commendable service.

Comfortable rooms; good food and parking

The rooms are clean and comfortable. Guests love the food, which they say is amazing and also reasonably priced. Most guests say that the breakfast has a good variety and they are served meals in good time. Another place the guests love is the bar of the hotel for its vibrant atmosphere. They appreciate the facility of the spacious car park.

Negative Reviews

Toilet issues

Guests who are at the hotel to eat a meal say that they find the toilets freezing cold. The staff toilet is on the way to the ladies' one, and guests say that the door was left open showing high chairs dumped inside, which looked disgusting.

Crowded restaurant

Most times the restaurant is crowded. The kitchens get the orders wrong and guests had to face the annoying issue of non-available items. After they place the order, they are told the items are not available, which means they have to start all over again.

Poor Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi signal is not very good and guests say they connected only fairly in the bar area and not at all in their rooms.
