In the past few years I've had business to attend to in Dundee. I've been traveling up from Cromer in Norfolk to Scotland about twice a year and every time have always insisted that I stayed at the Alberta Guesthouse. From the first time I stayed I was made to feel welcomed with a friendly homely atmosphere. Nothing was too... More

We had a very comfortable stay at the Alberta whilst visiting family in Dundee recently. John and Hazel are welcoming and friendly hosts. They went out of their way to accommodate us. We both enjoyed John's breakfast and their company as we found out a lot of local information which helped greatly with our visit. They were interested in us... More

We had a fabulous two nights at the Alberta Guesthouse recently, whilst visiting friends. The house was lovely and very easy to get to from town. The room was spacious, very clean with all amenities and good sized en suite bathroom.

The Alberta Guesthouse was a great respite from a long day and night of flight changes, international security checks and international travel mayhem. Our room was large, with the most comfortable bed I've slept in for ages! The Alberta has plenty of technical amenities for those in need of web access, there are two bus lines nearby that offer a...

My stay at the Alberta guesthouse was fantastic. Hazel and John are both lovely people and made me feel extremely welcome for the 5 nights I was there. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when I make my way back to Dundee I would recommend it to anybody staying in Dundee.

The friendliness and hospitality shown by Hazel & John was second to none. Breakfast was delicious and we each received just what we asked for. Nothing was too much trouble for our host's and it was more like staying with friends.

I strongly recommend this B&B to everybody, family run business, sweet atmosphere, really good facilities. I really appreciate the way they helped me sorting out my travelling matters. I will never forget my stay in this place! Daniel from Spain.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
... it's a friendly family house ... it's not stuffy, not minimalist and a little bit quirky - it's Albertian! :D We like laughter, football, art, music and meeting new people. Included in the price at no extra charge - breakfast (meaty, veggie or vegan, all cooked freshly - and in separate pans!), wifi access and car parking.Whether you are on your own working on Dundee and simply looking for a friendly base for your stay, enjoying a city break or touring the country, Alberta is in a perfect location ... five or ten minutes by car to the city centre, and on a main bus route ... very close to the Kingsway and therefore convenient for all routes in and out of the city ... in five minutes you can be by the beach at Broughty Ferry or out in the countryside, heading for the hills and lochs! Perfect for golfing, hillwalking, cycling or shopping :) ... more   less
