Would visit again!
We stayed as a family of 4 with our dog for one night last week. It was a last minute booking in a 3 bedroom villa. All the double rooms were ensuite plus there was a sofa bed in the living area. The bed linen, towels and robes were fresh. The villa quite comfortable. The grounds are really pleasant to walk around. A small, clean, warm pool with ( separate sex) saunas.
My husband and children had breakfast in the bistro and told me it was restaurant quality, herbs in the scrambled eggs, locally sourced sausages, good presentation etc.
Despite it being summer we arrived during a cold misty period. I ran all the heating from arrival through the night and didn’t incur any electricity charges.
Kilconquhar Castle Estate is great value for money. We would love to visit here again as Elie beach is picturesque with great walks and excellent places to eat. In the area. We had considered other places next time but not having a pool is a deal breaker so we’ll definitely head back here.
Beautiful location, but villas need updating
We’ve been coming to the Kilconquhar Castle Estate for several years every September as our family have a timeshare here.
It’s a beautiful location with stunning grounds and is a good choice if you want to ‘get away from it all’ but there are definitely some changes which could be made to really improve the overall experience.
The villa we stay in is nice and spacious, but the decor is quite dated and the interior could do with some serious modernising. This year the front door seems to have been painted a garish orange/brown colour which is really quite unattractive!
We don’t come away to be on our laptops all the time, however the estate is advertised as having wifi, however the signal is absolutely appalling and makes it simply unusable. If we are able to connect (which is intermittent in itself) it randomly stops working, which makes doing any kind of work impossible. Coupled with the non-existent mobile signal, don’t expect to be able to be contactable whilst you’re away. Whilst this won’t matter to everyone, it’s worth pointing out.
Overall, it’s a nice enough place for a relaxing holiday away but with a bit of modernisation to the accommodation, it could be spectacular.
Wonderful resort in Fife
We had a wonderful weekend staying in Kilconquhar. The staff members were very helpful, and the 4-bedroom villa far exceeded our hopes and expectations. It was incredibly spacious, well equipped, and nicely decorated.
The empty upstairs loft area made for a great play space for the kids. We were not able to take part in many of the activities offered because we were touring the area during the days, but our kids loved exploring the beautiful property and swimming in the pool. Bunny-spotting was a big hit as well! We booked the villa just a few days before going and received a huge last-minute discount, which made this a fantastic value.
Because there was not a villa available for both nights in a row, they staff was very accommodating in allowing us to stay in the 1st villa for a few extra hours while the second was being prepared, and they offered to move our things for us if needed.
The wifi was iffy, but we read in their welcome pack that the area of Scotland does not have fibre service yet, and they are unable to provide faster/more reliable service until they do.
Overall, we would highly recommend Kilconquhar Castle Estate and Country Club!
Villas at Kilconquhar castle are excellent, if there is a group of you don’t even bother trying to get breakfast
We stayed at the villas at Kilconquhar Castle, there were 24 of us in villas which slept 10, 8 and 6 all if which were very nice , they were clean and comfortable, all had saunas in them. I would go back and stay in the villas for sure.
My friend organised this weekend for us and went very well except for breakfast, she specifically asked when she booked and again the day before arrival if we needed to book for breakfast and was told no it would be no problem, however when we arrived on the Sunday morning for we were told they could not cater for us and only catered for pre-booked guests.
Not a good service however when we complained reception booked us all in elsewhere which we did appreciate however it meant that none of us used the spa facilities as previously planned. I would come again but self-cater.
Very enjoyable stay
Two nights in a villa at Kilconquhar Castle estate, beautiful view over large green expanse, lovely villa if a wee bit tired, great welcome from reception staff. Pool and soft play area lovely for small children. And most importantly, pet-friendly.
However, be warned, over the same weekend I was totally ripped off by GreenMotion car rentals at Edinburgh airport, Took the car back after no incidents, and was robbed of EUR 946 for pinpricks on a windscreen and a small scratch on wheel trim. Stay away from Green Motion.
This was our first staying at Kilconquhar Castle. We booked a 3 bedroom villa for Dec using my Timeshare. I read some of the reviews here, some was saying Kilconquhar being dated actually it might depend on which kind of accommodation you have chosen. For example, we stayed at a 3 bedroom villa (Villa 61), which living room, kitchen and bedrooms were modern but the bathrooms were a dated. It’s soft furnishing, in my opinion, was dated too. However, our villa was located far away from the reception/ main building; which was quiet.
What I like:
-It has a washer and dryer in the villa
-It was quiet
-Master bedroom comes with a set of bathrobes which was so useful
-Nice fluffy towels
-washing up liquid/ dishwasher tablets were provided
-Yes, there was a dishwasher but we did not use it
-Every bedroom has a TV but the TVs were small, especially the one in the master bedroom; it was a monitor use as a TV; more like a 19 or 21 inches monitor?
-I wasn’t sure how to work its wall mounted radiators so the reception called for the maintenance guy which was very helpful
-The kitchen has a coffee plunger not that we needed it but you might find this information useful
-The staff there was very helpful and friendly which was a big plus
-Plenty for children to do, for example, basketball, pool, table tennis, snooker etc
-There was a few sachets of coffee and tea as well as little pots of milk waiting for you on your first day after that you need to get your own as there will be no refill.
What I did not like:
– Often staying in a self-catering accommodation there are issues with its pots and pans especially the frying pans. When the non-stick parts of the pan have come away; it is no longer suitable for use for cooking as it would release poisonous non-stick material into your food. You might be able to request for a new one but I went out to buy one to save the troubles.
-Throughout our one week stay there was no housekeeping; if you want it, you have got to pay extra for it. However, we get a change of towel one time during our one week stay.
-Should you finish those little bottles of toiletries you could also go to the reception for more.
Note: For your information, we paid nearly 80 pounds for electricity for our 1 week stay. We were a party of 3 adults and a 10 year old.
Definitely four stars, luxurious self-catering accommodation
No wonder ‘Visit Scotland’ has deemed Kilconquhar Castle worthy of a four-star rating!
Earlier this month, we (three couples) stayed at a three-bedroom (all three with en-suite facilities) apartment at the Castle. The accommodation was spacious, sumptuously furnished and extremely well maintained. The beds were comfortable and the bed linen clean, fresh and of good quality. The lovely first floor lounge was a treat to return to at the end of each day touring the area, and it also afforded magnificent views each morning of the Castle’s well-maintained gardens and all the trees in their glorious autumnal colours.
We enjoyed a number of excellent meals during our stay at both the White Cockade Bistro and the main dining room in the Great Hall in the Castle. In each case, the ambience was great, the quality of the meals extremely good, the service efficient and friendly and the prices for food and wine were very reasonable – representing extremely good value for money. (The chef excels in preparing outstandingly good soups!)
There are some lovely places to visit in the area. The Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel are ‘absolute musts’ in this regard. Along the coast, there are a number of spectacular little fishing villages ( in many respects very similar to some Cornish fishing villages) to visit – that each offer quite unique places to enjoy a mid-day meal (eg. The East Pier Smokery in the village of St. Monans. And, of course, nearby St. Andrews merits at least a couple of visits to appreciate just how much of interest it has to offer.
All too soon our week at Kilconquhar Castle came to an end, but we will certainly be back to enjoy more of the treasures on offer in this splendid corner of Scotland.
It was a joy each evening to return from our trips out to relax after our evening meal in the lovely lounge on comfy leather soffas. TV and wifi facilities in the apartment were excellent, and the on-site shop stocked essential supplies and arranged for daily papers to be available.
All the staff we met at Kilconquhar Castle evidently took pride in ensuring that guests were afforded every assistance in a very friendly manner. On arrival and departure, Reception staff promptly arranged for a member of staff to assist with carrying our cases up and down the staircase to/from the first floor apartment.
Well done all the staff at Cilconquhar Castle. You certainly know how to make guests want to return in the future!
Back in time...
We visited this property in 2004 on an exchange with my timeshare. Staying in a 3 bedroom lodge on the property, we had a kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 2 living areas.
The walk to the castle property was short but breathtaking. Food at the pub was very good, and the views of the property, like I said, breathtaking. The village nearby was lovely, with good food at a local restaurant.
I was able to witness a wedding reception going on one evening in the castle, and had another breathtaking view of 7 men in kilts having their pic was taken by the bride…authentic for sure!
