The town of Falkland is just beautiful! The Covenanter is an old B&B right in the center of town and our room had a view of the church across the street and the fountain in the center. Our room was comfortable and the breakfasts were great and we both fell in love with the town and surroundings. Grace, one of the staff, was just delightful, pleasant, accommodating and full of good information regarding the area and surroundings. There are some lovely shops, some good restaurants (although at least one was not serving food on the days we happened to be there) and an extensive park system at the end of town with beautiful forested trails.
The hotel was changing ownership and, therefore, did not have their restaurant open. It would have been helpful to know this before we arrived. I think all will be okay once they make the switch but it was unfortunate to not get to experience the restaurant that we had read about.
Staff were very accommodating! I highly recommend the place. When we arrived, they informed us that the property is going under new management and restaurant will be close. They were able to recommend nearby inn for us to have dinner. Such a lovely town!
The washroom can be cleaner, as I think there might be noticeable mould on the bathroom wall. I hope the new management will upgrade certain aspect of the property.
The staff were friendly and the breakfast was excellent. The location is perfect too.
The hotel was changing hands 3 days after our stay, so had been neglected. We've stayed here a few years ago and the standard of the room was much better/nicer than this visit. The decor was dated and grubby. The shower just stopped working, while my partner was in it. The room/bathroom wasnt the cleanest and at £95.00, I would expect more. It certainly wasnt deluxe!!
Staff were very courteous.
Some of the furniture was tired.
An excellent breakfast. Also a fantastic cozy little bar that you visit in the evening. The whole building is very inviting
The beds could have been a size bigger / wider
Located in Cupar, The Covenanter Hotel is within a 15-minute drive of Falkland Palace and The Scottish Deer Centre.
