Return visit but second time wasn’t so good. We were allocated a twin room despite booking a double. Reception rectified immediately and allocated us a double room however it was not to the front with the views over the river (on the side with views onto the building next door) and we had to walk through a very smelly corridor ( think the carpet had been shampooed and it had stirred up some very unpleasant odours). Fortunately the room was fine- clean and comfortable. We didn’t realise when we were offered a breakfast in a bag that it would be so paltry ( see pic). I expected something a little more, even extra milk so you could have a morning cuppa, a carton of fruit juice and a yoghurt might have eased my dissatisfaction. Made worse as we walked through the breakfast area where people were sitting clearly having more substantial breakfasts at tables for the same price we paid. Unlikely to return.

Staying in Dundee was a pleasant surprise, the city has improved tremendously, the Holiday Inn was a super place to stay.The manager was extremely helpful after we used the little bridge from the car park straight into the hotel.Virus actions were obvious all around the hotel, the rooms were lovely and the "grab a bag" for breakfast was a unique idea but enjoyable too.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay , would stay again and recommend it to others

The gentleman who greeted us at reception couldn’t be any nicer! Made us feel extremely welcome. Pointed out the attractions and times places which were closed! I can’t remember his name yet he called me by my surname over the few days we were there. Attention to detail😁. The room was bog standard hotel room with a guest sette bed for my daughter. There was a double perhaps smaller bed which was comfortable and the room was warm. The breakfast was excellent in these current times of COVID and the cleanliness was above standard and made us feel safe. The car parking was useful as it took us to reception through a walkway and it should have been £10 plus each day which we didn’t need to pay as the barrier was open and ticket machine not working (result 🤣) The staff at the hotel were all very helpful and seemed interested in our stay. All in all a great place to stay in the centre of Dundee! I would choose this again on my return in the future.
