We stayed one night for a wedding nearby and had no expectations as to its standards given its price and also we were hardly going to be there. I have to say this was one of the best budget hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff were really friendly and prepared a room early for our arrival. Our room...

Rooms well above what you'd expect for the money. Not normally a 'Wetherspoons' visitor, but ended up eating in the bar below the hotel both nights and had two breakfasts there too. Not haute cuisine but perfectly acceptable and great value.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night only, booked 2 rooms side by side. Good nights sleep had by all. Many thanks to Claire (reception) who was always happy to help. Never had a problem but ask for rooms nearest the lift for a peaceful nights sleep.

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.

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.
