I think it’s safe to say, we are all ready for a holiday. It’s been a tough old year but with lockdown easing, a staycation might still be on the cards. With uncertainty around breaks abroad, it’s likely that many of us will keep it local and opt for a holiday in the UK instead. Luckily for you, the UK has tons of places to go and things to do!


Our Fife hotel understands that you may be nervous to travel again, so we’ve compiled a list of safecation tips to help quash those anxieties and get you excited about a post-lockdown escape! 


Plan your trip


It’s important to plan your trip. This might seem pretty obvious but it really is important! By planning your journey and activities, your trip is bound to run more smoothly and make you feel less stressed too. Some attractions may be closed, or have reduced opening hours so it’s important to check in advance to avoid any disappointment. Our Fife hotel recommends downloading a travel app, like TripAdvisor to plan your trip.

Pack plenty of supplies


Although lockdown may be easing, it isn’t over yet. It’s still vital to take extra precautions and put your wellbeing and safety first. If you’re planning a trip somewhere in the UK, be sure to pack plenty of supplies, including face masks, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes. If you are coming by train or coach, remember, it’s now compulsory to wear a face-covering on any form of public transport.

Avoid crowded areas


With uncertainty around what will be open, and what won’t, you may need to change your original plans quickly. It’s likely that popular attractions will be just that, popular, with long queues and waiting times. That’s why our hotel in Glenrothes recommends having a Plan B up your sleeve. Why not discover some of the local hidden gems? These are likely to be a lot quieter and may make you feel safer too. 


Crowded park


Limit interaction 


As per the Government’s advice, as individuals, we must still practise safe social distancing with those in different households. There are so many ways to reduce human interaction, many of which require little effort. Using contactless payment instead of cash is just one easy way to limit interaction. If you’re coming by train, opt for an e-ticket, this will enable you to be faster and safer. 


Contactless payment

During this time, please remain safe and responsible, to enjoy your staycation as much as possible. Our hotel in Fife looks forward to welcoming you, as soon as we reopen our doors!

Holiday Inn Express Glenrothes Reviews



We stayed at Glenrothes overnight on our journey from Liverpool to St Andrews university open day. From the moment we arrived at 10pm we were made to feel very welcome by the night staff.

Our room was fab... spotlessly clean and comfortable.

We were surprised to find that a fantastic choice of breakfasts were included in the already excellent price. It set us up for the day ahead.



Stayed here on the 16th September for an overnight stay, plenty of free parking, easy to check in, room very good size and clean, plenty of plug sockets and easy to get onto Wifi.

Staff very helpful which is always good. Breakfast is included so good start for the day ahead.

Would I stay again Yes i would.



One night stop over while visiting Burntisland, Crail, Anstruther and St Andrews. This hotel is 30 minutes away from all of them so ideally placed. Nothing fancy but clean and tidy and a decent breakfast in the morning. Nice courteous Staff too, would recommend.



This Holiday Inn Express is so much different to the larger ones we've stayed in, usually near airports.

It's a small hotel so the staff seem a little more friendly and have the time to attend to your needs. The complementary breakfast is superb.

Our room (225) had a huge double bed and was spotless. The shower was amazing! The room was heated by a simple radiator with a thermostat on top, very easy to use unlike some at other hotels we've used.

It's in a great location, very easy to get to Edinburgh and surrounding locations.



This hotel is perfect for short stays. Rooms are basic but are more than adequate and are clean. Everything we needed was there and for just over £50 a night with breakfast included, I would say it's good value. Buffet style breakfast is available. The hotel was quiet and peaceful and just over 1 mile away to the nearest shopping centre.



Just arrived home from a stay at this hotel. Booked 4 rooms for a family wedding which where all really good, comfortable and very clean. The main thing we spoke about that really made our full weekend even including people at the wedding we attended was the staff. This hotel is run by a team of staff who go above and beyond. The member of staff on reception (Louise) was out of this world. The level of customer service provided from the moment we arrived was one of the best any of us had received ever. Nothing was a problem. Knew we had a wedding to attend so took it upon her self to pre warn the taxi company our requirements to speed up the process for a mini bus taxi. As a group we wanted to sit together prior to going to the wedding and have something to eat when we arrived to meet at reception Louise had set out a big table for us with glasses and jugs of iced water. Simple things like this just made us feel really welcome. There was loads more things but the fact is this hotel has amazing staff who clearly know their stuff. Please pass on all our thanks to the team especially Louise. Well done I am still buzzing about your customer service. Definitely deserve some sort of reward. Breakfast in the morning was good and ample for a basic breakfast offering with nice coffee. Managed to get late checkout that makes the normal morning rush from a hotel actually enjoyable and chilled. Thanks for a lovely stay will be back!!


Rojales, Spain
