Stayed overnight at the Dunnikeir after a wedding. This old mansion was built in 1793, so is a bit tired if you are looking for something "yuppie".
For:- wedding meal was really great, and evening buffet was excellent. Staff very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was of very high quality in terms of food used and new chef knew just how to cook it. Open LOG FIRE in reception--well say no more. Separate venue for evening reception, so other guests not annoyed with disco noise. Very old paintings and carved wooden fireplace gave one the impression of being "The Laird"
Very large comfy bed and cosy once your in. Massive bath!!!
Against::- Yes, the rooms are tired but clean, and furniture is nearly new pine. Floor boards creak something awful. central heating inop, but fan heater in place.
Overview:- Present owners just been there for a year and new chef is trying (and succeeding) to take the dining experience up a few gears. This very old mansion would cost a "bankers bonus" to modernise, but give the folks half a chance, and im'e sure improvements shall be made. There is a limit to what you can do with these prestigeous old properties without spoiling their charm, which is what many people patronise the place for.
