We only got to stay one night at the Shaftesbury Lodge, but we got a great nights' sleep and felt that it was a great value. Upon arrival Heather provided us with walking directions to a number of restaurants (including a wonderful Indian place) and offered to help us with our luggage & the stairs. Be sure to remember that... More

What a discovery! Individually decorated, very spacious rooms with excellent facilities. Our only regret was that, after a copious evening meal at the local Italian, we were unable to do justice to the fantastic choice of breakfast dishes. Being a little way from the centre of Dundee, parking is easy and free. All in all, it's a winning combination.

Stayed here for 2 night while visiting daughter at her Uni down the road. Really clean, large room, very friendly owners and really really great breakfasts. I would highly recommend staying here whilst in Dundee. We will stay here every time we visit Dundee.

Not old fashioned at all. Fresh decoration and high ceilings make for spacious bedrooms and comfortable lounge. The dining room has Rene Mackintosh style chairs. Delicious breakfast. Free wifi. It is a 30 minute walk to town but there are plenty of buses or £5 taxi. Friendly welcome. We couldn't get into Premier Inn and are pleased as we wouldn't... More

We are two Canadian couples who stayed at the Shaftesbury in late August. The rooms were a nice size and clean. The breakfasts menu was varied and the food was great. The Shaftesbury has lots of character. We walked to Drouthys for supper the first night (a bar with good food) and liked it enough to go back again. Thanks... More

After a disappointing stay at the Dundee Hilton last year we were searching for a comfortable and quiet place to stay and found it. Plenty of on street parking, tasteful decoration appropriate to the building itself, comfortable room, lovely breakfast, friendly hosts. We'll definitely be booking there again next year.

Everything about this place is perfect. We had a large front room with views of the Firth of Tay. Heather was spot on with her suggestion of the Indian Restaurant, and it is a short walk away.
