There are a number of ways to have fun whilst at home and some activities can even bring you closer to friends and family in different households. In this blog, our hotel in Fife explores some of the top ways to keep yourself entertained at home.

Take part in an online workout class

Don’t become a couch potato, get moving and follow an online fitness class. This will be good for your physical health, as well as your mental health, as exercise is proven to increase endorphins, a hormone which can reduce stress and lift your mood. Every morning, Joe Wicks AKA The Body Coach runs an online fitness class, suitable for all ages on his YouTube channel. If you’re signed up to a gym, check their website to see if they are running any online workout sessions.

Binge watch a series on Netflix

Had your eye on a series that you never got round to watching, or fancy re-watching your favourite show? There is no better time to catch up on TV, then right now! From Netflix and Amazon Prime to free services like 4 OD and BBC iPlayer, there are so many shows to choose from. Get snuggled up on the couch, with a blanket and hot chocolate and stick on some feel-good TV.

Spring clean your house

From tidying the ‘junk drawer’ to giving the kitchen cupboards a good clear out, spend some time spring cleaning this April. As well as helping relieve stress, cleaning is an excellent form of exercise (believe it or not)! Running up and down stairs, scrubbing cupboards and vaccing up will definitely help to keep you in shape during lockdown.

Learn a new language

Spend your time at home well and learn a new skill, like a new language. Whether you’ve always wanted to speak French, Spanish or even Norweigan, if you have the time and the patience it’s a great way to invest your time at home. We’re not saying you’ll be fluent (you might be) but you might be able to hold a short conversation, which is a fantastic achievement!


French Language


Get involved in a virtual pub quiz

Pub not open? No problem, virtual quiz it is. Us Brits will do anything for a good pub quiz, so when lockdown was announced people started to go crazy for online ones! Pub landlords from up and down the country have started doing live videos on Facebook and other video streaming apps, encouraging the public to get involved. For upcoming ones, keep your eye out on social media and the news!

Holiday Inn Express Glenrothes Reviews



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!!


Rojales, Spain

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!


St. Asaph

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!
