    Location and plenty parking.

    Hotel very quiet for time of year no atmospere.

  • Single

    Staff was responsive to challenges. Restaurant looked like it might be very good, but only got to experience breakfast. Signage was very visable for drivers starting about a mile from the hotel.

    Was told internet "didn't reach to my room (and several others)". Code to enter building late at night was not working so had to wake someone to get in (although response was very quick.) Felt like there were holes in the floorboards under the carpet. Very "blind" exit from the parking lot, difficult to see oncoming traffic.

    Proximity to centre of Dundee

    Unglamourous location

    Comfortable and clean. Nice bar. Pleasant staff.

    Booked a double room but was given a twin which was disappointing especially given it was £84 a night! Wasn't even offered a complimentary drink or anything as a PR exercise.

  • Older travelers

    Amazing quality of breakfast, good location to shopping in city. Can only advise this hotel if the price is very cheap.

    Old and run down guest room. Bathroom with no shelving or ventilation. No lift ! a long walk upstairs for an elderly person. Girls on front desk gossiping about guests when they think nobody can hear. About 3 tv channels worked on the tv. Room very stuffy with that "old smell".

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    Not far from city centre and bus route

    Service at breakfast was very poor and needs a lot of tweeking

  • Single

    Not a good experience staying here, the one thing in its favour was that it was on the door step to my appointment next morning

  • Single
    6.6

    It was available at short notice and cheap.

    The fact that the advertised 8 A.M. breakfast on Saturday was not available - the bar man turned up at about twenty past and then proceeded to be cook (I think), waiter and cleaner!

    The dinning area was lovely and better value for food eating in the bar

    Friendly staff and good location for my needs.

    Clean and friendly. Good breakfast.

    Although the room was very clean the mattress was clearly very old and worn.

  • Couple
    8.2

    Staff were very friendly and the rooms were slightly dated but very clean. We booked in and went out soon after, came in late and left after breakfast so didnt have much experience in the hotel itself but breakfast was presented really well and the food was really good, would definitely book again.

  • Single
    4.2

    decor in dining area quite nice- more modern looking bedroom was clean bus stop just outside hotel

    bedroom shabby and very dated decor staff rather passive in their approach to queries instead of being proactive location of hotel quite run down

  • Single
    5.4

    Tv had all freeview channels. Staff were friendly and very polite

    first room they sent me to was dirty and had someone else's food still in room, once they gave me a different room it was fine, decor outdated and poor, room not the cleanest

  • Family with children

    Price was good for a city and is a quiet location. Food was good and dinning staff, in morning, were very friendly and helpful. Great amounts of hot water, but would be a bit wary if had kids with me!! Large spacious room and wardrobe with safe. Lovely bedding We were in room 8 on first floor. Would recommend for a shopping/arts break as price is terrific as is food. You are only in bed for a few hours!!!

    On arrival looked very sad, not easiest drive to get into either. Not well noted directions to reception. Dinning area looked lovely when entering hotel but on going to room we encountered thick dust on all but the dressing table, An over powering smell of 'oldness'. Carpet was not clean, had other peoples pubic hair on it!!!! Even after hoovering next morning it was worse than previous morning! Think a new vacuum would help a great deal. Found window opening very frightening, no safety catch to stop anyone falling out!! Paper border held on with pins and room in need of a good clean and paint. Bed was comfortable but the 'toggles' on mattress were uncomfortably protruding. In need of an overhaul all over.
