Had a lovely lunch here with the family on a day out exploring the Ayrshire coast. Great service, fantastic location with sea view and excellent food - the open seafood lasagne was a real highlight. Will definitely be back!

stumbled across dunure inn by chance as we were just having a drive on the scenic road and i was bowled over when we stepped inside.i think the chef saw us coming and opened the door for us which was very welcoming and it didnt stop there, it was very clean and well furbished to my taste, we opted to go to the dining area straight away where it was quiet as we had a baby and a toddler who chats everybody in sight to death. the waitress was very friendly and very attentive not hovering,i had bacon cheese double burger with bbq sauce, husband had gammon steak with a big slice of pineapple, mum in law had haddock chips and peas,both the waitress and the chef came over to ask if our food was ok,we were all impressed all round and i have to say we all are really fussiest eaters ever!!!!! we are planning to come back and stay a few nights and enjoy the cuisine again.my only critism however is positive, when i went to change my baby in baby changing area i noticed this is where highchairs are kept/stacked?surely you can find somewhere to store them just for simple things like healthy and safety as i dont think every staff will wipe/disinfect the chairs upon request? and anyway its not a pretty sight. took the toddler to the female wc,the one on far right does not flush?i didnt report this at the time as i didnt want to make a fuss,but thought it may help if you take this on board in the future.and once again thanks for great meal

Thank you for your review and comments.

The high chairs were in temporary storage in the disabled toilet and are now back in their usual spot out of sight.
It 's the left hand ladies cubicle which requires a certain technique to flush at the moment as we are awaiting a part to repair it. Staff do check and flush it regularly at the moment as an interim measure.

My wife and I spent a week near saltcoats and decided to have a drive down the coast, We stopped off in Dunure for a break in driving, looking at the Dunure inn we thought what a nice place, we carried on down the coast and on our return we went back to the Dunure inn for some Dinner, I wish we hadnt to be fair, I had the mussles for a starter which were fine, my wife had the pate, again ok but when the main course came it was really not to the standard I would expect from this sort of place, I had the T bone steak, Asked for it medium rare, the outside of the steak was very grey and didnt taste very nice at all, my wife had chicken stuffed with Haggis, The chicken was so dry, really not a nice meal at all as far as the main course goes, nearly £6 for a large glass of wine too, on the whole I wouldnt want to go back, A shame because the setting was so nice,

Stayed here last night with husband and other family members. We all agreed the hotel was fabulous - as was this morning's breakfast! Would definitely return (hopefully soon) and highly recommend it. The rooms, en-suites, and public areas are all furnished and decorated very tastefully and there was a welcoming warmth to the whole place. The views from the rooms are stunning too!

Visited the Dunure inn after walking the Ayrshire coastal path on one of the few sunny days of the summer. The Inn has a great outdoor beer garden at the rear of the property which is fantastic for drinks and eating outside. We had food which was good but over priced for what was on offer.
We had our dog with us and were told on arrival that dogs weren't permitted access to the building.This was fine until 5 mins after we finished our meal.... The rain came on and didn't stop!
We asked to go in to the small bar area but unfortunately the was not possible as "dogs are not permitted in the building" So we sat outside in the pouring rain drinking our after dinner coffees!
We were a little disappointed at being treated this way and can't help thinking the Dunure Inn are missing a trick by not making a small part of the Inn dog friendly!
