We were at a New Year's Eve party at friends' house in the village so needed somewhere to stay. The staff in the Dundas are a very friendly and professional bunch and the welcome/check in matched this. We had the room right above the main bar which would have been a problem had we come back early as the Dundas regulars were making the most of the late opening time! Fortunately we were back late and there was no noise from the bar. The room was very hot but the windows worked and we could cool it down a little. There was an annoying 'clicking' sound coming from the bathroom ceiling which we would have had to get checked out if staying longer but for one night, we tried to ignore it. The room was large and comfortable and had all the usual amenities (tea/coffee making facilities etc) of a good 3 star hotel. Breakfast was very tasty though the staff were disorganised. They said they were not told that guests would be coming down to breakfast at 9.30am as normally breakfast is finished by then. We did keep having to ask for things (toast, butter, more coffee etc) as the staff were more intent on getting set up for lunch than ensuring we had more than the basics. That said, they were happy to bring whatever we asked. Overall, a nice place to stay, though at £95 it is certainly on the steep side.
