This is a surprisingly difficult review for me to write as I have been a fairly regular visitor here for over 30 years. I've seen it change through many different owners and have to say now it appears to have reached a sorry low point. The hotel seems to be getting more and more run down with little appearing to...

Dunniker hotel is a great family friendly place to have a drink or eat . The bar staff always make us feel welcome and it's a very relaxed environment. I've eaten here several times and the food is pretty good id say standard pub favourites. I've never stayed here and can imagine the rooms being pretty tired . Public areas... More

Only stayed one night in early May. Room was very basic and carpets very grubby, wallpaper gad seen better days. Bed was clean, however but that was the highlight. The curtains didn't meet and the bathroom was probably very nice forty years ago. I'm sure with investment, this place could be lovely but it's really showing its age in public... More

Very disappointing, only the quality of food stopped my rating being a ONE. We arrived at 12 noon and proceeded to look for a member of staff and ring the reception bell for 10 minutes, during this time we found the menus and made our selection. When some one appeared it wasn't exactly a "warm welcome" we received, but rather... More

We have three small terrier dogs and were visiting family recently in Glenrothes. The Dunnikier House Hotel was one of a small minority of hotels / B&B which would accept dogs. We were all made extremely welcome from the moment we arrived. The location and grounds around the hotel were a dog walkers paradise! We stayed for 2 nights in... More

My Husband and I had a weekend here with other members of our family. We were very happy with our large room with view over the grounds; our bed was vast and comfortable, there was a large TV on the wall. However the bathroom needed some work--there was a crack in the washbasin and neither basin nor bath had plugs... More

Just back after our 5th stay at Dunnikier. Unfortunately Kirkcaldy does not have much of a choice of hotels with family rooms so we always go back to Dunnikier park Hotel. After our last visit we suggested they change the mattresses on the beds and to our surprise there was different mattresses. The hotel is starting to look extremely old... More

After being out for a walk we stopped by to have some refreshments and sat at a table outside. It was the weekend and the weather was fine so we thought at least they would be expecting some trade as there was also something going on in the near by park. This is not my first bad experience there and... More

I was here for a one day conference and living in Leeds decided to stay overnight. The room was quite outdated and pretty tired looking. The bathroom definitely needed and update and the whole room generally felt a little grubby. In addition the television didn't work (room 1) as the aerial was not plugged in and as the aerial socket... More

Ate there today for lunch today, Went in past busy car park but near empty lounges. I informed reception i wanted "lunch for two people" and was taken to bar area. When I asked whether they did fine dining I was curtly told, "we don't do fine dining, bar lunches only". When given menus I was told, "we have a... More
