Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review, so glad you had a brilliant stay. Sorry about the staffs attitude that is definitely not ideal and not the way they should be treating customers, hopefully next time you visit you will find us our usual cheery polite selves.

Every time we visit, the food is never cooked. Found hair in our food a few times. They always say sorry about it but it keeps happening. The staff are really nice though. Only come here for a drink now. Never food.

Thanks for your review, sorry your experience wasn't a positive one. Hopefully you will give us another try, it is very rare that any foreign body is found in our food so sorry that it happened to yourself.

Stayed here a few times. Recent stay was great rooms redecorated. Well worth the money. Free wifi coffee/tea &water. Free car park is also a bonus. Bus station on your door step great link to anywhere you want to go. Kingdom Shopping centre entrance hundred yards few units closed but okay. Paid more for less facilities will defenitly be back.

Golden Acorn was an unplanned but necessary stop due to bus lines stopping in Glenrothes on Sunday nights (unexpectedly for me). Having travelled for 13+ hours already and unable to get home, Golden Acorn was everything I needed - right next to bus station, clean, comfortable, with hot drinks in the room and a quick and cheap breakfast the next...

The Golden Acorn in Glenrothes was booked on Sunday morning 22 January 2017 We had received a phone call saying that our Daughter in-law had been taken into hospital after a fall and things were not looking very good.

BRILLIANT. We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, from 29 Dec- 2 Jan, was a great experience from start to finish. The staff on arrival were welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, the room on the first floor was of excellent size with everything you needed catered for, the rooms were cleaned to a high standard each morning....

My wife and i have stayed here a few times and we always have a great experience. The rooms are all tastefully decorated and have comfy beds and include complimentary bottles of mineral water. The bonus is that the bar and restaruant is downstairs where you can have great food that will not break the bank.
