I've had the pleasure to stay at the Invercarse on a number of occasions over the past few years as my Company uses the hotel for staff needing accommodation in Dundee. I've always very much enjoyed my stays, the major factor being very friendly and good fun staff, a great bar and highly acceptable food which is always welcome after a long day.
There is a 'however' side to this review though, and it is sad that the rooms and general amenity of the hotel is in dire need of a serious update. The rooms are comfortable enough, but suffer from outdated decor and mediocre bathrooms. The shower in my room last week was just dreadful - it seemed to dribble water at a frighteningly slow pace, and is just not even adequate in this day and age. I expect a hotel shower to drill holes in my skull to wake me up in the morning, but unfortunately at the Invercarse you need to rise 30 minutes earlier than planned to allow the bath to fill from the equally paltry bath taps.
I've had this problem in rooms on both floors - so the shower issue is consistent throughout!
So, with an upgrade of the bathroom facilities and a modern decor this would be a smashing hotel - as it is it is good, has the heart and soul, but not the facilities which are expected and offered. Premier Inn bedrooms are of a far, far higher standard, but we return regularly to the Invercarse for the overall experience which is very pleasant.
