“Nice hotel, noisy room, terrible online customer service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Myself, my wife and my children (5 and 1) stayed for two nights on a public holiday weekend.

We had a ground floor room just along from reception. The room itself was great, just as we always find with the premier inn. Unfortunately we were badly disturbed by noise from the room above us, so bad that the light fittings in the room were shaking, this woke both myself and my wife on both nights that we stayed.

Breakfast in the adjoining restaurant was good and it's a great location for Dundee, especially for Camperdown.

We received great customer service from the reception staff when they were told of our noise problems, but since making a complaint online, both emails I have sent have been ignored. The online customer service from Premier Inn is terrible!

Overall, I'd recommend the hotel, but would suggest requesting a non-ground floor room.

Stayed one night as I was on work business. Had the best sleep ever in a great big comfy bed . Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Had dinner in the Beefeater grill next door and had the saver evening menu, which was great value for money. Overall I couldn't fault any of it and definitely would stay there again if I was back up in Dundee.

We have stayed at this Premier Inn several times and thought it was excellent, but our most recent visit was spoilt by very noisy guests in the room above us. They came in at 2am and crashed around for 2 hours by which time we just wanted to get in the car and go home. Apart from that everything was fine - very clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Ensure that you get a first floor room to avoid the same issues. When I asked about this I was advi...

Stayed for one night - very comfortable, very pleasant staff and restaurant food very good and reasonable. We did have a bit of a wait for dinner but the place was very full. Otherwise couldn't fault it and very reasonable price too.

We have stayed at this Premier Inn before and found it to be an excellent venue. As previously we found all the staff helpful and smiley. A credit to the Premier Inn chain. The room we had was well presented, with a marvelous large flat screen TV.

My wife and I booked a room for the night with our 2 and a half year old daughter and considering the room for the night was only £35 we decided to book the all you can eat breakfast for £15 for us both, which includes under sixteens eating free too.
The room was very well appointed a very good size, clean with comfortable beds and far enough away from the main road for it to be silent throughout the night. Although that may be due to the soundproofing of the rooms rather than the location.
The breakfast was well worth the money, with an almost limitless selection and the service was excellent.
Both my wife and I were very impressed.
