First impressions - taxi driving into the street, noticing it's a residential area. The guest house from the outside, looked a bit dated, but clean. The owner, a very friendly lady, could do anything for us, even four loud young girls. Even the next day, she was saying she was listening out for us, "wondering where the girls are", and... More

The rooms are small but clean and convenient for groups of more than two people (semi-separate accommodations within mini-apartments). However, no soap or shampoo for the shower, and the curtains did not... More

Stayed here in march for a night ... The B&B is very clean, rooms are bright, spacious and modern. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Perfect location - quiet area but close enough to all amenities. Will definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for 3 nights plus 3 friends. We all agree it was a great place to stay as the land lady couldn't have been more friendly, kind and helpful. All rooms clean, comfortable. Breakfast was delicious too! Would definitely stay here again. Thank you.

My friend and I stayed at the B&B for 2 nights in October 2010 and we loved our time here. It's outside of the main part of Dundee in a cute and quite area. The rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was good, and the host was extremely nice and sweet! She worked very hard to make sure we were... More

I made a reservation by e-mail once month ago and I was asked for my credit card details, I gave the card number and exp date. When I was asked for the 3 digits at the back, I refused because with all those details, they can charge anything they want anytime they want. I offer instead to pay through a... More
