Clean rooms, comfortable public areas and staff who are all friendly and most helpful make for a very enjouable stay in Dundee which is a little town which not much to recomend itself except that it is a good base for visits to the battlefields. All meals served were well prepared and vey tasty. Highly recomended

A very homely and comfortable hotel with pleasant helpful staff, clean quite smart rooms and very good food. If you're visiting the Boer and Zulu War sites it's a very convenient base, sitting, as it does at the base of Talana Hill, the first battle of the 2nd Boer War. Dundee is a modest little town but the hotel has... More

Only visited the restaurant for lunch. These people went out of their way to provide us with a lovely lunch and friendly service. Such a pleasant old feel to the place. Appreciated the friendliness :) and the food was really good and fresh.

Lovely colonial style hotel, that has not found itself stuck in the past, but it has a wonderful feeling, with friendly and accommodating staff. Great location ideal to base yourself for the battlefields. Good mix of interesting locals and visiting travellers. Nice breakfast, and a good bar with a friendly bar man. Secure parking.

We just had our family reunion here. It was fabulous. Places like this are a rare find. It takes you right back to days gone by, with wooden floors & pressed ceiling & all the rooms facing an inner courtyard. It was spotlessly clean. The rooms are as they should be. Period, confortable and clean. The staff were friendly and... More

We stayed at the Royal Country Inn during a package tour that took us to the north east of the country, and were delighted with our experience. The owner and staff offer a five star experience, even if the hotel itself offers a slightly faded elegance that nevertheless allows the visitor to feel like they have stepped back in time.... More

As soon as you step into the bedroom with it's high pressed metal ceilings you know you are not in an anonymous hotel chain. We were lucky to get the last room when we arrived late without having booked. The owners and staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Certainly the rooms are in need of a bit of an... More

Very caring reception staff and owner. Amazing place full of bits and pieces! Quite unexpected décor! Restaurant was lovely and food was very good. Main meal & brekkie no complaints in this department. The rooms were clean and the bed very comfortable with a great bath/shower. On a main street so not far from the shops. Great Location. Enjoyed my... More

The hotel is to some extent in need of an upgrade but I fear that in doing so the hotel would lose much of its charm. Feels a little Fawlty Towers, but in a good way. Prices are reasonable for what you get.
