“Deserves it's No. 3 status!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2011

Booked this hotel after our usual haunts were full. What a pleasant surprise we got - very friendly greeting (owner) at reception, who was informative and helpful. Room lovely and spacious with nice little touches. Although no evening meals, quality snacks (soup, sandwich etc) can be delivered to your room and an extensive drinks lists is available. This is a great option if you don't fancy hitting the town after a hectic day's sightseeing! Breakfast delicious and served promptly in delightful surroundings. This will be our hotel of choice on future visits to Dundee.

Our one night stay at the Shaftesbury Hotel was such good value for money. The bedroom and bathroom was lovely, large and airy, and very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and what impressed us most was the friendly service we received. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dundee and there are some nice restaurants to choose from close by.

Our room was very comfortable, spacious and clean. Quiet location near the river, yet close to local restaurants and centre of Dundee. Owners, Heather and Martin, are friendly and helpful and breakfast is excellent. No hesitation in recommending this hotel for a relaxing stay in Dundee.

Heather's warm welcome was a lovely start to my stay. She booked a taxi for my evening trip to the casino too. My double room was spacious, clean and bright, with a good view across the street from the window. The hotel is also only ten minutes by car from the excellent Downfield golf course. From a business perspective it is literally yards from the West Park conference centre. The food provided at breakfast was of an excellent quality. However, I was disappointed they did not provide evening meals.

If you want a small, very clean , quiet and friendly hotel ,and a breakfast which is top quality look no further than this hotel. The hosts Heather & Martin pay great attention to making your stay as comfortable and friendly as possible. The room we stayed in was spacious, beautifully clean and the beds were comfortable -plenty of pillows and lots of drawer space.
We have previously stayed with Heather and Martin when they owned a hotel in Cumbria . It was the best hotel we had experienced for food cleanliness and hospitality. As a result we had no hesitation in travelling to stay with them in Dundee. The food they offer is always the best - the quality of the bacon, sausage, mushrooms,eggs etc are clearly thought about before served to customers. You will not be disappointed with the breakfast.
They also offer Sandwiches and/or soup in the evenings ( at the moment there is no evening meal) - sandwiches soup and a small bottle of wine for £10 suited us fine. They do offer menus for recommended restaurants in the area including italian and Indian.Heather and Martin have only been at this hotel since the summer of 2010. If their last hotel is anything to go by then, (if they introduce evening meals at some time in the future )look out for fantastic meals -they are a bit special .
The hotel is in a nice quiet residential area but only a few minutes away from the town centre. There is ample parking in the quiet street outside the hotel. Rest assured Heather and Martin will work tirelessly to make this hotel one you will want to return to again and again.

couldn't fault this in any way really. the hotel provided everything I needed for my business trip overnight stay.

The host was lovely and friendly and cooked me a great breakfast which set me up for the day.

I had a great night's sleep and the room was very cosy and comfortable.

Very good, clean, comfortable hotel within walking distance of centre of Dundee. Nice room with view of Tay Bridge. Plenty of space to park car in quiet road outside hotel. Lovely breakfast. Very helpful and friendly staff. Will definitely be returning next time we're in Dundee.
