We just can recommend the apartment. The rooms look exactly as shown in the pictures. Lots of space in the living room. We felt at home immediately. Thanks again for the hospitality! – guest August 2017;
Our family of five stayed here for a week in June, had a terrific time in Kinghorn, and enjoyed the use of the Town Hall in every way. Large, flexible, and spacious can be hard to find in the UK, but this rental is all three. Everything works, multiple bathrooms, laundry facilities, and even a walled garden for when the sun pops out. The hostess, Beth, was helpful as well. Thanks, we will be back! – guest June 2017;
The moment you get to this amazing village the charm is obvious. The location is out of a storybook and you feel like royalty and the people of the town (Kinghorn) are friendly and gracious. Tho it’s not a real castle it has the look and feel of one and you feel transported back to another time. Our host was wonderful and the whole experience was amazing. I would go back in a heartbeat. – Guest May 2017;
Had a wonderful family reunion in very special surroundings. Very comfortable and well appointed venue. Looking forward to celebrating my 90th. Birthday there! – May 2017;
We had a wonderful time at Kinghorn Town Hall. We were pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of this property. We kept opening doors and finding one more room. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit the area. I would definitely come back to this rental. Thank you for a great time and your great hospitality. – Guest April 2017;
Will definitely book again on a return trip. This flat had everything we needed, was an easy train ride to Edinburgh and the village of Kinghorn is so charming and friendly. Also being so close to the beach meant amazing sunsets and exploring. Being in a historical property just put it over the top. – Guest March 2017;
My family and I had 3 wonderful days in Kinghorn. We were very pleased with the excellent service provided when checking in. The apartment exceeded all expectations with historical details and exclusive interior. We felt like a royal family while staying here:) The bedrooms are huge and we got to enjoy a lot of space as we travelled 4 adults, but would definitely recommend it to families as well. It was clean and had all equipment necessary. We were welcomed with bread from the local bakery and a bottle of wine, reflecting the high quality of service from Beth. We felt more welcome than we would ever do in a hotel. With the train station right around the corner we were able to go into Edinburgh for dinner and shopping (it only took about 40 mins). We also rented a car and went to St. Andrews for a day, which I would also recommend if you are a golf enthusiast. I would definitely come here again and would like to give my warmest recommendations to people considering renting this apartment. – Guest February 2017;
We really enjoyed staying at this property – it was really homely and also very well located, being both an easy distance to Edinburgh and the beautiful countryside and coast of Fife. We have two young children who were enchanted by the property, and it worked really well for a family. – Guest April 2019;
