I stayed at the Old Manor Hotel in Lundin Links (in east central Scotland) on a Tuesday night in October 2018. I paid £36 for a single room including breakfast, booked on the eBookers website.
I was looking for lodgings for the night when I was in Fife to visit several art exhibitions. I knew of the Old Manor Hotel, having driven past it many times over the years. I was attracted by the location with views over the Forth Estuary. But I wasn’t willing to fork out an additional £20+ for a sea view room. I reckoned that I might arrive after dark, so wouldn’t see the view and at least, I would have the view during breakfast in the dining room.
I arrived at the Old Manor Hotel around 5.30pm. There was plenty of space in the car park. But the surface of the car park was like fine gravel, vs tarmac, so I decided to carry, as opposed to wheel, my suitcase.
The public areas were attractive.
I was upgraded to a double room, but not to a sea view room (fair enough). My first floor room faced the road outside the hotel, but I didn’t hear any exterior noise when the window was shut.
I was impressed by the room. I believe it had been recently refurbished. There was a large wardrobe with a light. The TV was in a corner, as opposed to above the desk. There was a cafetiere and a ground coffee bag, a sachet of luxury hot chocolate and various teabags.
The bed and the char at the desk were very comfortable. In addition to the thick curtains. there was a roller blind, so it was nice and dark in the room for sleeping. The WiFi was good.
The bathroom was a good size, with lovely toiletries and soft towels.
The one improvement I’d like would be electrical sockets above the desk. I ended up having to put the kettle on the carpet.
The following morning, I arrived in the dining room in time to see the sunrise.
My table was in the corner, so I had an expansive view.
There was a buffet table with a selection of fruit choice, cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit, pastries. You could make your own toast in the toaster. Tea or coffee was served to your table.
There was a good choice for the freshly cooked breakfast. I found it hard to decided whether to have the smoked salmon with scrambled egg or the smoked haddock with poached egg. I opted for the salmon, which was very good.
The waiting staff were very friendly and attentive.
In summary, I’d recommend the Old Manor Hotel in Lundin Links. The quality of the accommodation and food was high.
