I always associate a HI Express with just a comfy bed and clean room but the extras here were better than I anticipated - free good WiFi and breakfast. The free breakfast was fantastic and much more extensive than I expected. I visit Dundee occasionally for work and find it comparatively expensive to stay and eat out, so this HI... More

IHG knew they would be on to a winner once they replaced the old hotel with the Express new build. Once all the redevelopment work is complete this will be my first choice hotel, as it enjoys views over the Tay Road bridge, and Scott's RRS Discovery.

This hotel is amongst my favourites in the IHG landscape. It does what it says on the tin. Clean room, free breakfast, free wi-fi and that stunning view of the Tay bridge at night.
