Another great 2 night stay at this lovely Hotel. I phoned The Waterfront direct and we were able to get the great 'Itison' deal, which delighted us. Room spotlessly clean and as always lovely and warm. Food fabulous and served by friendly, helpful staff. Amazing value and we will certainly return.

Back for the second time last weekend. Terrific value. The room we stayed in was lovely, the bed was nice and big, the place was spotless clean, but the best of all is the restaurant. Loads of choice, especially if your after sea food, and ample portions. The service is second to none and all of the staff are friendly...

Stayed here after buying a itison voucher. What a wee gem this place is! We were initially placed in a twin room which staff rectified quickly, we were moved to a double style studio apartment. It was modern and clean with WiFi throughout. The beds were so comfortable, the rooms were warm and the shower was great. I loved the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Waterfront Hotel. The food was excellent. We stayed in a family room which was nice, spacious and very clean. The staff were lovely and very accommodating. We booked with an Itison voucher and it was amazing value for money. We will definitely be back.

This was an overnight on a limited budget while on business. After an initial small issue with the room which was instantly resolved, my stay couldn't have been better. My room was probably the best I've ever had in an establishment which calls itself a B and B. It was at least 4 star hotel quality and comfort. The Waterfront...

After we had dinner in the Waterfront restaurant, it was only a small stroll to our room. You have to go around the outside, but it's only a very short walk. The rooms are very nice, enough space and very rural located. It's very tidy, clean and you feel at home straight away. The breakfast is in the Waterfront restaurant...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Described as "One of the treasures of the East Neuk," The Waterfront was proudly opened in May 2003, hosting a 55 seat a’ la carte restaurant. Personally run, The Waterfront has Anstruther’s finest location situated just a few steps from Anstruther’s harbour and marina with views over the Firth of Forth. During the warmer months we boast al fresco dining to the front and a mature courtyard for relaxing to the rear. We aim to cater for all tastes. Varied Seafood selections, chef’s specials, children’s menu, delicious coffee and cakes. The Waterfront seafood selection is surely there to impress boasting freshly delivered fish from local markets including oriental scallops, citrus salmon, stuffed sea bass, steamed mussels and a true Scottish favourite that has stood the test of time, good old Fish and Chips. ... more   less
