Restaurant only. Living a short distance away I consider myself a regular at the Dunnikier, both for meals and for drinks. Today I went with my husband and son for lunch. We were seated and sat for a huge length of time before we were given menus or offered drinks. Once we ordered lunch, it took an age to come...and... More

We stayed one night after a family lunch in Ellie. It is hard to find and has a pretty scruffy rear entrance which wasn't the best start. My husband described it as the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. We had paid £90 for a family room. It was 2 floors up with no lift, we have a 2... More

Having had our wedding reception here at the Dunnikier House hotel in Kirkcaldy just a couple of weeks ago, I am saddened to say that our choice of having the reception here was regrettably a big mistake. During the run up to the day, we were filled with lots of confidence by the hotel manager/wedding co-ordinator Lynne [--], and reassured... More

Main course said pasta choices with vegetarian option but waitress said there was no choice for vegetarians. Luckily a senior person passing advised that the chef... More

On arrival there was a youth (girl) wearing a hoodie in the reception. Not very professional !. I think she might have been a friend of one of the staff but she was appearing to be the receptionist. Tacky !. The hotel is very run down and in urgent need of the `Hotel Inspector` visiting it to try and help... More
