This is a perfectly good hotel to spend a few days. It does not have a restaurant on site but there are several excellent restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walk. The hotel includes a breakfast, self service buffet, not quite the full Scottish breakfast variety but good enough. The hotel does cater for a lot of coach parties... More

Clean, spacious rooms. Staff is friendly. The hotel also offers complimentary wi-fi. The location is good for train station access, the McManus museum, the University of Dundee, etc. Breakfast is adequate, although not particularly interesting. In sum, it's a decent place to stay for a Dundee visit.

Clean and comfortable. Friendly, efficient staff. The hotel is perfectly adequate for a business or any kind of short stop-over and offers reasonable facilities including free wi-fi. It is also well- situated, a short walk from the railway station and on the waterfront, which is currently undergoing a massive and very promising makeover. Breakfast self serve and no great shakes... More

Good hotel for the price you pay, cost wise similar to a travelodge but I'd much rather stay in this chain any day of the week. The rooms are clean and relatively fresh looking. Free wifi, it's slow but realistically it's only ever gonna be used for Facebook and emails so it's useable. Location is right next to the city... More

Location- Central place to visit Scone Castel and St Andrews. Did not really visit the city itself. Asked for a quiet room with river view but did not get it. You can come in directly to the rooms on the elevator without going through the reception. You need a key to enter the hallway to your room, but anyone can... More

At £61 bed and breakfast, not really sure what people expect. The rooms are basic, but they're clean and functional and the beds are comfortable.
