Scotland, United Kingdom.
Grab your sunglasses and fill the car with a bucket and spade, footballs, sun cream and a rain jacket for a fun-filled summer staycation in the beautiful Glenrothes.
Glenrothes is in the centre of the Kingdom of Fife which means it is the ideal place to stay and explore, with some real treasures on our doorstep and more a further a-field.
Head straight to Riverside Park a few minutes-walk from the hotel. Perfect for little legs to burn off some energy after all the excitement of the long journey. Woodland walks, floral gardens, sculptures and several play areas will ensure those legs are well stretched before a great night’s sleep.
We’re only a 3-minute drive from the Renaissance Falkland Palace and gardens where you can follow the footsteps of Mary, Queen of Scots. It’s also home to one of Britain’s oldest tennis courts, and a giant board of chess in the formal gardens.
Not forgetting the town of Glenrothes which is home to Scotland’s largest indoor shopping centre, with over 100 retail outlets, and restaurants, a cinema and theatre.

No summer holiday trip is complete without a visit to the seaside. Leven Beach is ideal for the family with its long sandy beaches. Don’t forget the bag of 2p’s too as there’s a private amusement arcade as well as crazy golf and a summer fair.
For the lover of transport head to the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum to see many buses displayed in their hall. Get competitive at Adventure Golf Island – an indoor and outdoor adventure golf complex which is inspired by the crazy golf complexes found in Florida.
You can’t beat a day at Cairnie Fruit Farm and Mega Maze which offers a fun day out for all the family. Pick your own strawberries, cherries and berries and perhaps a sunflower too before heading to the ‘Funyard’ to lose your way in the Maize maze. Once you’ve found your way out, enjoy the other activities on offer including a bouncing pillow, sunken trampolines, swings and slides.
Discover a village that time has passed by at the picturesque Burgh of Culross which is the most complete example of a Burgh (town) of the 17th and 18th Centuries. These streets have appeared on hit TV show Outlander and offers plenty to occupy the whole family. Search for the Culross knitted chicks in the Palace and the LEGO figures hiding in nooks and crannies in each room.
Scotland has a secret which can be found beneath a Scottish farmhouse, the secret is an underground nuclear command bunker which was built to help safeguard Scotland during the cold war in the event of a nuclear attack. Today The Secret Bunker which lies 100 feet underground and is the size of two football pitches, is an attraction for you to explore… if you dare!

We stayed at Glenrothes overnight on our journey from Liverpool to St Andrews university open day. From the moment we arrived at 10pm we were made to feel very welcome by the night staff.
Our room was fab... spotlessly clean and comfortable.
We were surprised to find that a fantastic choice of breakfasts were included in the already excellent price. It set us up for the day ahead.
Stayed here on the 16th September for an overnight stay, plenty of free parking, easy to check in, room very good size and clean, plenty of plug sockets and easy to get onto Wifi.
Staff very helpful which is always good. Breakfast is included so good start for the day ahead.
Would I stay again Yes i would.
One night stop over while visiting Burntisland, Crail, Anstruther and St Andrews. This hotel is 30 minutes away from all of them so ideally placed. Nothing fancy but clean and tidy and a decent breakfast in the morning. Nice courteous Staff too, would recommend.
This Holiday Inn Express is so much different to the larger ones we've stayed in, usually near airports.
It's a small hotel so the staff seem a little more friendly and have the time to attend to your needs. The complementary breakfast is superb.
Our room (225) had a huge double bed and was spotless. The shower was amazing! The room was heated by a simple radiator with a thermostat on top, very easy to use unlike some at other hotels we've used.
It's in a great location, very easy to get to Edinburgh and surrounding locations.
This hotel is perfect for short stays. Rooms are basic but are more than adequate and are clean. Everything we needed was there and for just over £50 a night with breakfast included, I would say it's good value. Buffet style breakfast is available. The hotel was quiet and peaceful and just over 1 mile away to the nearest shopping centre.
Just arrived home from a stay at this hotel. Booked 4 rooms for a family wedding which where all really good, comfortable and very clean. The main thing we spoke about that really made our full weekend even including people at the wedding we attended was the staff. This hotel is run by a team of staff who go above and beyond. The member of staff on reception (Louise) was out of this world. The level of customer service provided from the moment we arrived was one of the best any of us had received ever. Nothing was a problem. Knew we had a wedding to attend so took it upon her self to pre warn the taxi company our requirements to speed up the process for a mini bus taxi. As a group we wanted to sit together prior to going to the wedding and have something to eat when we arrived to meet at reception Louise had set out a big table for us with glasses and jugs of iced water. Simple things like this just made us feel really welcome. There was loads more things but the fact is this hotel has amazing staff who clearly know their stuff. Please pass on all our thanks to the team especially Louise. Well done I am still buzzing about your customer service. Definitely deserve some sort of reward. Breakfast in the morning was good and ample for a basic breakfast offering with nice coffee. Managed to get late checkout that makes the normal morning rush from a hotel actually enjoyable and chilled. Thanks for a lovely stay will be back!!
Over from Spain visiting family& didn't quite know what to expect & was very happy with all services provided. Clean spacious room. Ample food & drink at breakfast. One thing they've got perfect... Staff! Very helpful and great humour well recommended!
Great hotel for a great price. Easily accessible with lovely helpful and friendly staff. Room though standard was spotless and very big. The bed was huge and comfy and it had great facilities. Wish all hotels had a standard this high at such great prices. Thanks for a lovely stay guys!
