Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A former late 18th century country mansion house, Dunnikier House Hotel retains many of the original architectural features maintaining the charm and character of that era. Set in extensive public parkland and adjacent to a public golf course, the hotel commands an imposing position with fine southerly views across the parkland. Dunnikier House Hotel successfully combines the country house hotel setting, which makes it a popular wedding venue, in this busy town plus with the 2 major commercial centres of both Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes nearby.

Situated on the northern outskirts of Kirkcaldy, Dunnikier House Hotel is one mile from the town centre and is less than 2 miles from the A92 East Fife Regional Road which links with the M90, facilitating access to Scotland's motorway system. With a large population within a 5/10 mile radius of the hotel and the proximity of commercial industrial centres, such as Glenrothes, the hotel enjoys a steady year round custom from both visitors and businessmen together with local trade. The adjacent public golf course, and the renown of this part of Fife as a golfing centre, attracts visiting golfing parties who use the hotel as a base while playing the many courses along the coast, including St Andrews. The restaurant, bar and function room are popular locally for weddings and other functions, as well as catering to the nearby crematorium.

The sellers purchased Dunnikier in 2007 to complement their other (non competing) hotel business, elsewhere in Fife. The decision to sell is to allow them to concentrate further on the development of their other business. The availability of the Dunnikier House Hotel is a great opportunity for serious hoteliers to acquire an established and well known hotel business with opportunity for development growth.
