The Golf Hotel
The Golf Hotel, situated in the heart of the historic town of Crail in the East Neuk of Fife, is a grade A listed coaching inn and is said to be one of the oldest licensed inns in Scotland.
Built in 1721, the hotel is a fine example of local architecture, featuring crow-stepped gables and retaining original old beams, low ceilings, wooden floors and stables.
The Golf Hotel has been tastefully refurbished to enhance its original features, whilst still providing guests with the comfortable, modern accommodation that make it a Visit Scotland 3 star establishment.
Proprietor and chef, Graham Guthrie, has owned The Golf Hotel for 19 years and has gained a reputation for home cooking and value for money. Mr Guthrie is only the fourth owner since 1928 and plans to stay host at this charming hotel for the long term. "For young and old, visitor or local, we offer a warm welcome and a friendly smile."
Crail itself is famed for its quiet and unspoiled charm. The 16th century Dutch built harbour with its original pier, fishing cottages and red pan tile roofs has featured in many magazines, photographs and films. A coastal walk which takes its path through Crail to St Andrews offers stunning views out to sea, passing rocky harbours and yellow sands.
The area is a golfer's paradise. Crail Golfing Society's two 18-hole links courses are a five minute drive from the hotel.
Add to all of this the fact that Crail has one of the sunniest climates in Britain and you will realise that a stay at The Golf Hotel is one never to forget.
