“A tired old girl with a friendly nature.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Stayed one night as a stop over breaking a long drive. Susan on reception was most welcoming and very helpful indeed - as was Angie in the morning. The weather was very warm and upon arriving at my room I found a fan blasting cool air around and the curtains closed to reduce as much sunlight as possible. Nice touch! What you see is what you get with Premier Inn - the room was clean and the bathroom dated but also very clean. The shower was very good but don't have any ideas about 'power shower' settings - as if you do you'll have to fight the shower curtain for dear life. Check out time is 12 noon! Fab for a lie in.

Word of caution - unless you own a protective suit of some kind - avoid the pub/restaurant next door. I've been in some dives but jeez! McDonalds over the road could be classed as fine dining in comparison. You've been warned!

Room Tip: Lift access so any floor is fine - ask for room at the back (opposite side from the car park) if you...

Dear GlasgowPeter57,

Many thanks for your review of Dundee North Premier Inn.

Its fantastic to read that Susan and Angie were both welcoming and helpful, but I do hope the review heading was not relating to either of them…?!

The Weavers Mill restaurant is not owned or operated by Premier Inn, but please feel free to contact me directly as I will pass on any feedback you may have.

Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back in the near future.

Kind regards,
Jamie Oliphant

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We booked in for 2 nights recently as we use Premier Inns all the time and travel a lot.
On arrival at check in the young Asian guy on duty was not very good compared to the normally excellent reception staff. He did not communicate very well and clearly should not have been on reception as the first person that you meet.
The room was good, normal Premier Inn standard and very warm so the fan was a nice touch.
However the worst thing of all was both mornings we came out of our room, ALL the fire doors were wedged wide open which is both dangerous and against the law and it was clearly a daily practice which really needs to be addressed and certainly needs to be stopped.
Avoid The Weavers pub/restaurant next door as its by far the worst restaurant associated with Premier Inn we have ever come across. Its the dirtiest, unorganised and poorly staffed place we have ever been in.
We ate there on the Saturday night and we had to wait for the FLOOR to be cleaned before we could even sit down. Some of the staff were rude and inadequately trained and ended up one of the worst eating experiences ever.
Breakfast on the Sunday was dismal and the staff miserable and the floor was still covered with food from the night before.
However breakfast on the Monday was different again and the lasy in charge was lovely and her staff friendly and helpful.
We would use the Premier Inn again but just not eat any meals there.

Dear Robjoy,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review.

I can only apologise about your welcome as that’s not the impression we try to give. I will look into your comments regarding this.

When it is hot inside and out, we open the fire doors to try and encourage fresh air around the hotel. Team members are in the areas when the doors are open and if the alarm sounds the doors will be closed. We are really trying to reduce the temperature so our guests can have a comfortable stay.

The Weavers Mill is not owned or operated by Premier Inn, but I will be sure to pass on your feedback.

If you wish to contact me directly please do so on my details below.

Kind regards,
Jamie Oliphant

We were warned this would be on a noisy complex but not so. We had a great nights sleep and it was handy having leisure facilities near by. This was a budget stopover as part of our honeymoon. 10/10 x

Have stayed here before and find it very nice, comfy and friendly. Staff very helpful and nothing too much trouble. Asked for a fan as it was very hot in room and receptionist went and got one immediately. Lovely surroundings for walking in too.

I am a fan of the Premier Inn brand and actively search them out when travelling, however i can honestly say this is the worst Premier Inn I have stayed in. This is not a reflection on the staff, as all my dealings with them were positive. This is more a reflection on the age and the tiredness of the hotel, the bathroom and the exterior of the hotel.

My husband and I have been staying here for 2 years, a very convenient spot when visiting our daughter. Don't be put off by the Spartan appearance of the entrance. Reception staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming, many of them now knowing our names ( and family history in the nicest way!) Nothing is too much trouble to ensure our comfort, from a room fan offered in the hot times, and sheet instead of duvet, to making sure our room has decaf coffee in our hospitality tray. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, beds comfy, and the double glazing does a good job of keeping most of the noise from car park (at front) and very busy by-pass(back) from being a problem. The housekeeping staff are also friendly and helpful.

Close by are Dundee Stars ice arena, a cinema, and Camperdown Park, a wonderful place to walk in all seasons, with deer, children's play area and mini-zoo.

McD's, KFC, and Ashokashak (Indian) offer alternative eating options to Weaver's Mill next door to Inn. We breakfast in Weaver's simply because we don't like the alternatives, but it is most unprepossessing. Continental breakfast is however, good value, and enjoyable. Cooked is variable, but still offers plentiful food for the price.

There are ( infrequent) buses to the City centre, and taxis don't cost much, if you don't want to drive.
