Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PV13 good clean rooms
Clean room, comfortable bed..checked in a bit late around 10:30pm and there were no meal options...had to search a bit as not many restaurants were open in dunfermline at that time! would have been great if they do meals as well.. but overall a nice stay..good breakfast as well:)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Krzysztof123 Nice stay
We stayed there for a week - 2 adults, one 17 year old child and one 2 year old child, in an accessible room, which was very beneficial as the room was very spacious and we were able to have our pram and a cot for the baby and still be able to get around a room without constantly bumping into things.
The staff was very friendly, and the hotel had nice cosy atmosphere.
Regarding local amenities, there is an ASDA store within 5 minute walking distance, and Dunfermline Queen Margaret train station within 15-20 minute walking distance - we used to travel to Edinburgh every day for sightseeing.
The only small drawback was breakfast - it was included in the price which is great, but the choices were the same every day, so after a week it might have become a bit monotonous.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2hats Great place to stay
Easily accessible from the motorway and as cheap alternative to the expensive hotels in Edinburgh city centre, the Express by Holiday Inn checks all the boxes.
A couple of things the owners could do to improve it:
Have a keg of real ale, call it a guest beer
Make sure the internet is working properly
There is a pub just a short walk away, but its nothing special, the bar menu may seem expensive in the hotel, but the food is of a much better quality.

Despite requesting interconnecting rooms and confirming on the Thursday prior to arrival that this would be available, when we arrived we were given rooms on opposite sides of the corridor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shaik112 Good Hotel at Value for Money
Good place to stay if travelling to and from the Scottish Highlands. Comfortable, friendly and great facilities in and around the hotel. Asda is a stone throw away with a retail park next to the hotel. Excellent cheap choice for 1 night stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dougie243 Good for the money
I arrived at the holiday in thinking that's a busy road it's on.Got a very nice warm welcome from the reception staff.They even ask me in a nice way why my Family and I were through from Glasgow and with my answer she offered to book us a taxi for later that evening.The room was spacious although I had to make up the spare bed for my daughter which i thought would have been done for us.Maybe it was not made up because when it was you had to stand on it to open and close the window. Which is why there was a spat broken .When closing the window you could not hear the busy road outside.The bathroom was very stylish with a great power shower and a great array of mirrors for my wife.The bed was very soft which did not suit me so i slept on the sofa bed which broke during the night when i was turning over.I am only 13st. In the morning i checked the sofa bed and one of the spats plastic end had popped out again.NOT MUCH SLEEP.Went for Breakfast about 9.45am and there was no rolls left and we had to ask a wait for scrambled eggs. It didn't seem that busy. Then we got a nice goodbye from reception.All in all it was good enough for me to stay again.

Overall had an enjoyable stay. Friendly helpfuL staff. One small problem having recently become wheelchair dependent we had an accessible room. Everything was fine apart from the position of soap containers. These were far too high up the wall and inaccessible to me from my wheelchair.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Penti0ner Price and location was good
Bed comfortable.Reception girls were helpful and efficient.
Room was shabby,needs refreshed.
Not enough clothes storage.
Breakfast :- had to ask for heaters as the whole area was bitterly cold.People were wearing outdoor clothing to eat at breakfast.
Breakfast was a disgrace i.g.croissants were stale,scrambled egg was disgusting and usually lukewarm and surely the fresh fruit could be varied.Tinned mandarins and tinned grapefruit in my opinion are not acceptable. No tongs for lifting the bread.Husband and I have always chosen to stay at this hotel but I am afraid we will be going elsewhere as from now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bigdoog123 A home from home
In room TV's could do with updating and I found the wi-fi difficult to connect to, but overall an excellent clean and fresh hotel in a good location with very friendly and accomodating staff and fresh produce for breakfast. I'll most definately be back (tonight as a matter of fact) it's now my second home!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hie13 could do better
Breakfast choice only fair...seemed to have run out of items due to late delivery.Able to relax only fair....why do guests always bang their room doors,even in the early hours....the notice about a sleep zone was not adhered to.Was disturbed on each night of stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Samraf78 Fantastic Staff at the Front Office
Absolutely fantastic, friendly and warm staff at the Reception. I think it was Bob and another lady at the time. We reached very tired after driving many hours and their reception made our day. The hotel was a typical Holiday Inn Express. Value for money, nice and clean........want more luxury, pay for more then ! but the receptionists made a great difference.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mydnite Nice people
The hotel was within easy access of the motorway. Very easy check in, lovely staff and very clean. However, the mattress, which I was told is due to be replaced, was truly awful, worn out and noisy making 'pings'. This was the only bad point. I have put I would recommend it, but only when the mattresses are renewed.

We recently stayed at Dunfermline and wanted to write to say how friendly and helpful your staff were during our stay. They went the extra mile to make our stay extra special.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lesley52 Staff service appalling
Hotel usual great HI standard, however, this express offered evening food. I ordered at 18.30, a bowl of soup and a sweet. At 20.00 I asked where my soup was. I was told they were busy. Less than a dozen people! Mmmmm. It took a further half hour before I received my soup. Staff weren't apologetic, in fact somewhat disinterested. Wen asked by the duty manager, when checking out, if my stay had been ok, this is how the conversation went|
Manager: how was your stay?
Me: fine apart from the evening meal
Manager: oh, did you have to wait a while?
Me: yes, 2hrs for a bowl of soup
End of conversation as she walked away.
I am a gold member, always use HI group where possible when travelling with work or pleasure. Generally deleted with most. May I suggest that this hotel doesn't offer an evening meal service as it is a discredit to the whole organisation .

The rooms are large and comfy, the bathroom was very modern and the bed was comfortable. As it is a Holiday Inn express there was not a great deal inside the Hotel the bar was very quiet and no atmosphere, the evening meals are only served Monday to Thursday? cant understand that! But the staff were pleasant and helpfull and we would stay here again.
