“Hotel OK, other guests not so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Good location although roadworks at the moment make driving tricky if you don't know the area.
Room ok but basic.
Staff pretty good, one young male member of the breakfast dining staff was excellent. My wife asked him about directions. Not only did he tell us, but returned 5 minutes later with a printout of the route.
Downside was that on the Friday night a group of guests returned to the hotel about 2.30am and proceeded to hammer on every door on floor 3, waking everyone including small children.

The hotel is pretty centrally located, although due to construction works out side the hotel its a nightmare to get to as the roads are changing all the time. The hotel itself is pretty modern with nice bar area and friendly staff. The rooms I would say are pretty basic for the price. I had booked a double but ended up in a twin, which meant I didn't get much sleep as the bed was small.

It was my first time in this hotel and although I wouldn't avoid it, for the price I may look elsewhere for more home comforts.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the building give a great view of the Tay Bridge.

Good value hotel and central location, lot of building work going on but still good view of Tay bridge. Continental breakfast included which suited us well, no other food except vending machine but no problem as plenty in area including Marco Polo Restaurant below the hotel, which is very nice. Room mostly clean with double bed and double sofa bed, would not be much room when sofa bed pulled but do have some rooms with adjoining doors, Some of the carpets in need of deep clean otherwise very good.

Room Tip: All rooms the same but possibly avoid rooms with adjoining doors as seemed to here the next room eas...

My daughter and I had a 2 night beak here to check out Dundee University. Arrived Monday about 4pm and parked outside in empty space side of road. Handy enough from A85 Riverside Drive from Perth. A bit tricky as roadworks at end of Tay Bridge but if you keep to left hotel is on left, go past hotel to first road on multi storey car park on left, park on 2nd floor as there is a walkway straight into reception. Council car park so only have to pay between 8am and 6pm. I think it was £6.90 for day, but you can go in and out all day with day ticket!

Hotel was very clean, ensuite spotless, and staff who helped me were lovely.

Breakfast good, only saucages could be more scottish with meat in them, as they were not good.


Tescos and M& S right behind hotel. Good bars nearby and Lloyds No1 bar behind good for Ale.


Recommend hotel to friends and family as we enjoyed hotel.

Room Tip: 4th Floor 429 was room at end so only one room adjoining. Very quiet

booked a night for my family for 19th october via laterooms
paid £79 -£20 less than the standard price.
parking behind the hotel in a secure multistory.went to reception on the first floor,where a very nice lady made us feel welcome.great start,i thought, walking through this modern,welcoming hotel,to our room.
downhill from there though...
room for a family- as booked- very cramped,double bed mattress sunken in the middle,stiffling hot room even with the heating off and windows open.chin up ,we thought its just for a night...
cant have it all.oh man...mid october,having to take the duvet covers out to use as sheets due to the heat! window open to breathe,only to be noisily reminded "city centre pubs outside" kids awake till 1ish as they hot and bothered and doors banging can be heard on all levels.
oh well -big buffet breakfast make up for it...? not a chance... ok -cereal,toast,scrambled eggs,beans -but trade description people please note -sausages were obviously sawdust (or possibly cat litter -not sure) damn awful!! cold ham on offer was so processed- budget buy - it resembled a dogs squeaky toy. " we dont do bacon " i was informed when i requested.
"ok then -bye" was the retort from man on desk when checking out -still miffed at bacon request maybe?? fired off a quick email when home,only to receive a standard "staff training will be applied " reply -as bland as the stay/bed/food we recieved.will never stray from premier inn again (good night sleep guaranteed -they,holiday inn use FOGARTY bedding items!) -feel i owe lenny hendry an apology - thought this stay would be a notch above premier,who i have never had an issue with after dozens of stays. "hope you enjoy your next stay at holiday inn dundee!" our email reply ended - i would rather stay in a tent, burn £75 on a camping gaz stove,keeping 4 quid back for decent sausages!

Room Tip: premier inn discovery quay (across the road) fabulous! -stayed there in april
