Booked a double and a single room over Easter weekend. Situated on a quiet road near heart of city. Plenty of street parking. Warm welcome to a very clean and "happy" hotel. Rooms are a good size with good beds. Bathrooms warm and shower had a good flow of hot water. Decor is modern homely and in good order. The rooms were quiet with little external or internal noise. Breakfast had a good choice and quality was evident and well cooked. Will return here when visiting Dundee.

My wife and I stayed at the Shaftesbury for five nights in October. The large room was beautifully decorated with a huge bay window. The owners were very helpful and very professional in every way. The breakfasts, included in the room price, were excellent with a choice of continental style or full Scottish breakfast.
We had guests over one night and entertained them in the front room and Heather was most gracious in serving us tea.
The hotel, which has a B&B feel, is quaint and charming.
Highly recommended.

We stayed here as a group, from the outset the proprietors could not do enough for us. The easily accommodated all our requests in relation to late check in and room allocations. The Hotel itself is full of character and charm, and it is clear that the owners take real pride in its up keep. The rooms and all the facilities provided were perfect for all in our small group, warm, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and I would highly recommend Martins homemade Marmalade 10/10. I really can’t wait to visit again, Many Thanks

Have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Shaftesbury Lodge and it was equally as pleasant as our stay there last year. The rooms are immaculate and very comfortable. The breakfasts are amazing and there is plenty of choice to suit everyone. Heather and Martin are great hosts and we look forward to staying there again in the futuure. Gordon & Sue, Yorkshire

I have stayed here several times in the last 3 years: it is my first choice for accommodation in Dundee. By "cross-over", I mean that the Shaftesbury has elements of both a full service hotel and a B&B. The rooms, the breakfast, the level of decor, the quality of fittings, the toiletries, the wifi, all rival the best 3* and are better than some 4* hotels. The personal welcome, the price, the cooked-to-order breakfast are all characteristic of the very best B&Bs. There is ample parking on the quiet street and the location is handy for the city. The only element missing from the 'mix' is that there is no meals service other than breakfast. This is compensated by the proximity (6/7 mins walk) of a selection of pubs and restaurants to suit most tastes. The hosts, Heather and Martin are charming, caring and very hard-working. No open-minded visitor will be disappointed.

Room Tip: Wifi best on the first floor.

The Shaftesbury Lodge is just off the bottom of Blackness Road near the west end of Hawkhill. Parking is in the quiet street outside. Welcome is very good and the breakfast is well up to a good standard. I would consider using it again and I am sorry, given the nice decor that I could not have stayed a few days.
