Balcomie Links Hotel Information

Description

With a mix of twin, double & king bedrooms, over two floors (please note there is no lift), all ensuite with water saving showers and upgraded to reflect the hotel's new look and quality offering, Balcomie Links Hotel is the ideal base for golfers and golf fans alike and is historic Crail's largest hotel. Complimentary Wifi comes as standard as does a warm welcome and exceptional customer service. Style with substance has been the key consideration when creating the new look for the hotel with hygiene, safety and sustainability at the forefront of the design. All bedrooms feature quality bed linens, premium toiletries, hot drink machines, hairdryers and flat screen smart TVs. But with the stunning local views over the Firth of Forth and those world class golf courses and coastal walkways, we won't be offended if you simply use your room to rest your head. Facilities include our Restaurant & Lounge Bar providing freshly prepared local produce. Our outside seating area at the front of the property is the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner with friends or to take the opportunity to make new ones. Our large private car park for hotel patrons provides space for up to 20 cars.

Having been completely refurbished by the new owners, Drygate Inns Ltd, 2022 saw Balcomie Links Hotel not only celebrating 118 years of welcoming guests but also a fresh and contemporary new look and a new standard of service from our excellent local team. Warm and welcoming, providing excellent customer service that's attentive, yet unobtrusive, professional but unpretentious, we're incredibly lucky to have secured local staff, who, with great insider knowledge, are more than happy to point guests in the right direction to finding the treasures of beautiful Crail and the East Neuk. The Balcomie Links team thrives on guest satisfaction and our goal is to ensure you enjoy your time with us, whether residing with in one of our new contemporary designed bedrooms, enjoying a meal in our dining area (the super Scottish Scotch Egg is amazing) or simply popping in for a coffee, quick pint or cold glass of Prosecco at the bar. We're also dog friendly and happy to supply bowls of water and cheeky treat to our four-legged patrons.
