About us

The City, as it's known locally, is a historical and yet modern hotel blending traditional service with contemporary details. From our chic cocktail bar serving innovative drinks, to our family dining restaurant or our sunny outdoor terrace there's a perfect spot for everyone.

Travelling through, in our city for an event or live locally?  The City is the place to meet, eat and have fun.


Opened the same year as the American Revolution began, The City Hotel has been at the centre of Dunfermline hospitality since 1775. Men have marched past on their way to two World Wars, we've seen the Forth Rail Bridge, the Road Bridge and now the Queensferry Crossing open and been here while 67 British Prime Ministers have come and gone! Generations have dined with us, been served wedding breakfasts and celebrated life's milestones.

The City continues to evolve with the times ensuring that you will always have a warm welcome and a memorable experience.
