“Christmas Party Night”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

A lovely meal at our Christmas party night. Efficient and attentive staff served a delicious meal that was piping hot. We had special diet requests too but these were catered for without any hassle. Not the boring mundane food thats usually served at other party nights but top quality dishes. The room was well set out too and looked lovely. Well done to all staff involved especially the very efficient supervisor in the function suite. She did a great job! Thank you for a great night!

We had a party night organised at the new Malmaison Hotel in Dundee but due to the opening of the hotel being rescheduled our booking was moved to the Apex. We were obviously disappointed that we were not getting to experience the newest hotel in Dundee but were quite happy to go to the Apex. You would have thought that the Apex would have made an almighty effort to make the night a huge success in order that we might book there next Christmas.

The food was appalling - salmon cooked to within an inch of its life and cheese that was so hard the you could have broken your teeth on it (no exaggeration). They had no Sauvignon Blanc white wine in the hotel - which was disappointing and very little else to choose from.

I know it was a function but it was not that cheap and can honestly say that I will not be going back next year.

At last a really good city hotel experience. Great rooms of a good size, quiet and well appointed.A really comfortable mattress.

Really good staff, great food in the restaurant. Breakfast was spot on, a very rare thing in most hotels I stay in.Function rooms looking a bit tired but apart from that this is a great hotel and one that I would have no hesitation in staying at gain or recommending.

I look forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: ask for a room that overlooks the dock, great views and much quieter...

I met a friend who was staying here for dinner. Rooms and hotel looked lovely so was expecting good things. Very limited menu so had to have the beef burger with chunky chips. Was expecting 'jenga' chips so was unpleasantly surprised when I was served frozen chips. Found the burger quite tasteless but sauce accompaniment was quite nice. Service was fine.

this is the second time we have stayed here and found staff very polite and friendly on both occasions.. we had a 2 night stay and we were not too impressed with the breakfast on the first morning.. potato scones were hard, the black pudding was solid and eggs were tough as old boots, as we had gone down later we decided the next day we would get up early so everything was fresh but were still left rather disappointed

We felt that we should have been made aware that the hotel had a function on one of the evenings, granted it is party season but had we been aware that music would be thumping until after midnight (even though we were on forth floor) we would have booked elsewhere.

other than that it is a lovely hotel and is in great location easy access to shops and resaraunts

I was booked in to the Apex at Dundee by work as we were attending a conference in Dundee. i have stayed here before and rated and was pleased it was still as good.

The rooms are bright and clean, the bathroom looked like it had a refurb and I was pleased with the accommodation.

The bar staff were helpful and pleasant although they were working really hard - I was in a large party so the staff were busy when we checked in, met at the bar and checked out but all were really helpful and nice.

Breakfast was just ok - the food was pretty good but not very hot, there was limited selection of fresh fruit juice, apparently no skimmed milk for tea and coffee and the most anaemic toast I have ever seen (which took ages to arrive) - I am not sure if I personally had been paying for it if I'd have been as accepting but hey ho!

Room Tip: Go for a room overlooking the river - the rooms sat the back have more traffic noise.
