Welcome to The City Hotel

Check availability

The heart of Dunfermline hospitality since 1775

Our online booking system is now LIVE to enable you to make your reservation and help us keep our community safe: online booking system. Please be aware that although all areas of the hotel are open, under current Scottish Government rules, we can ONLY serve alcohol to tables outside on The Deck (over 18's only). If the time you'd prefer is not visible when you are booking then unfortunately it is unavailable/fully booked - only available times will show in the booking system.

We're all looking forward to spending Summer in The City Hotel - why go anywhere else when our own historical wee City has so much to offer!

Summer in The City

We're opening The Deck for over 18's all Summer long !

You can now reserve your table on our outdoor Deck and with our new Al Fresco Menu you'll be spoiled for choice in the heart of Dunfermline hospitality!

Please Note: the Scottish weather can be unpredictable - if we have to close The Balcony for your safety we cannot guarantee an indoor table (due to current social distancing rules).

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.
