Booked this as we didn't want to stay is some branded travelodge or equivalent. What a treat - Douglas and Barbara could not have been more helpful. We were visiting the University open day and they sorted out transport for us to the Medical school in the morning. They (and a fellow guest) even managed to solve the tricky problem... More

Don't waste your time or money in soulless hotels (such as the dreadful Travelodge) book into the Dunlaw House and let Douglas and Barbara look after you. This is a real gem, near the centre of town. Great rooms and the best breakfast in Dundee. Ideal for golfers, tourists and visiting academics like myself. I could not recommend this warm,... More

4 golfers from Norway on the annual outing. This time we went for Dundee. We have been around Scotland for some years now, and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this nice and friendly househotel! If you are a golfer, Douglas is capeable to give you golf advises about courses, and how to do things when going to courses etc. Will... More

Booked this hotel for one night, lovely warm welcome, nice clean warm room. We had en suite facilities but please note that not all rooms do and parking can be a bit hit and miss but I would return as the couple who own/run the place were absolutely lovely and the breakfast was fantastic. We stayed in room 1 which... More

Just spent a few nights in Dunlaw House in Dundee, where the hosts Barbara and Douglas offered us a very warm service and excellent breakfast. The house is beautiful, with a fab garden and fantastic decoration and all sorts of details. We were on our honeymoon trip, and had a very appreciated upgrade to a room with en suite bathroom....

Thought we would break with tradition this visit to Dundee and give the independents a shot. this Hotel is on a par for price along with some of the big players but we were a bit disappointed on a few aspects of this hotel. First of the biscuits they provided with the in room tea and coffee were smashed to... More

While this hotel was not to my liking, I'm certain many people will enjoy a stay here. Our room was well sized with a large ensuite and very comfy bed :) We were disappointed to find the hotel had no parking and that most of Union Terrace is in fact double yellow lines! I didn't expect to have to lug... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Wonderful and really helpful couple running this hotel. Super Scottish breakfast with hot tea and toast with Barbara's motherly touch. Rooms are cosy clean and adequate but the bathroom a little small. The city center is just a mere 10 minute walk. The walk back is uphill so if you are unfit or aged... More

All is in the title! Barbara and Douglas are nice and cheerful, the hotel is quiet the breakfast is a vast feast, with free Wi-fi, plus they can lend adaptor plugs and hair-dryers for our girls. This makes of it a pleasant place to stay in spit of the size of the rooms. All the best to them

On our arrival at Dunlaw having tucked the car away on the street, we were welcomed warmly by the owners Barbara and Douglas and shown the location of bathrooms and facilities, and up to our room. We'd ordered a double at a very reasonable price, and it certainly met our expectations. The bed was roomy and comfortable, with plenty pillows... More
