Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa
Ranked #2 of 28 Hotels in Dundee
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 15, 2007

Have stayed in a number of Apex hotels. They do what they say they will. Desinged for the mass market - both business and leisure traveller, with almost a heartless feel about it. OK sized rooms, but expensive internet access. Toiletries were good, and it's nice to have a robe. Staff were ok.

The menu description at dinner (in the hotel, not the acclaimed restuaurant also in the hotel which I didn't see until the next day...) was better than the food delivered, but it was not to be scoffed at.

We stayed here in the summer and got a cheap deal off the internet. But for what you get I would not like to be charge full price. Room was large and airy but could have been cleaner. Spa was nice. good location in dundee, plenty of parking etc. we thought breakfast should have been included for the price they charge.

My husband and I have just returned from 2 wonderful nights spent at the Apex. We both enjoyed a very relaxing day in the spa having facials and a massage (very highly recommended)
Our room was very comfortable, and relaxing with great views overooking the quay, everything we asked for was provided.
The restaurant was clean, tidy and the food was excellant, our waitresses (claire, susan and lorna) at breakfast were very welcoming, friendly and nothing seemed to be to much trouble despite them being very busy, we were seated almost immediately and were given an explanation on how breakfast worked as we had never stayed at the hotel before.
All in all my husband and I cannot wait to return to this 1st class hotel

We stayed 1 nite DBB in a suite room
Firstly the spa was fantastic, massages were the best we ever had, alot of the staff have left stobo castle to come here and other guests we spoke to also liked it alot better than stobo in every way , so the spa is a must, but you must book well in advance for treatments as they are very busy at weekends.

Our room was clean fresh spacious and looked brand new
the was a large sofa with fluffy rug and wooden floor in the lounge, 32 inch widescreen tv and dvd player
large bathroom with walk in shower and deep bath,
floor to ceiling windows that open with blackout curtains and quiet aircon ,
kingsize bed good size tv and built in wardrobes in the bedroom.
the bar was reasonably priced and dinner was ok the hotel is opening a fine dining restaurant on 25th jan so i think we'd prefer that on future visits

We are frequent travelers and this is the first time ever that we think it is important to write a review of our experience. We stayed at this hotel from 24/12 to 27/12/06. We booked dinner, bed and breakfast package for 3 nights for a Superior King Room. Contrary to the room description on their website, the room has neither a safe nor a fridge. The room is otherwise quite nice. As other reviews suggest, one should eat elsewhere. The service is haphazard and overall poor at the Metro Brasserie. The waiters and waitresses prefer to gather together at the till rather than serving the customers. You might not get all the items you ordered. The glasses and cups were not washed properly but with stain on it. More importantly, when you check-out, you must check your bill properly because they can get confuse between DBB (dinner, bed and breakfast) and BB (bed and breakfast) rate easily.

We first went to the Apex Hotel in Dundee for my birthday 3 years ago. When we drove up to the main entrance on the outset we were disappointed and wondered what we were going into. The outside is all wooden, looking in need of a refurbishment but we decided not to let it ruin our stay. When we entered reception to book in, boy were we totally surprised and shocked!!! It was stunning, you could not have asked for a nicer hotel. By this time we couldn't wait to see what our room was like. We were in a double room but it was upgraded. It was abslolutley stunning. Very contemporary and stylish. We had complimentary dressing gowns and slippers waiting for us and a bottle of red wine a chocs for the ladies!!! We were so impressed by this time that the outside of the building was a distant memory! The inside was totally stunning and so were the rooms. At night we ate in the Metro Brassery, although slightly expensive, the food was absolutley delish and would recommend to all!!! The staff were superb and very helpful that much we returned 2 months later for my partner's birthday. This time we stayed for 2 nights and made use of the Yu Spa. Again, it's a must for everyone. Quite cheap for what you get and after a massage you feel so refreshed and wanting more. Again, as we were not disappointed we returned this year in Oct 2006 for another night's stay and once again, yes, we had an excellent time and the service is very fast and effiecient. There is a Chinese Buffet and Indian Buffet on the dock which is a much and Rama the Thai restaurant must be dined at. All of which are walking distance from the hotel which saves the hassle of getting a taxi. Overall this hotel is highly recommendable and you must try the Yu spa.

As a regular business traveller to Dundee i stay in the Apex at least once or twice a month. The rooms are pleasant, clean and modern although can be a bit warm despite the noisy aircon. The full price quoted for the room is ludicrously expensive so dont ever book direct. The most i have ever paid for one night is £89 pounds. Sounds expensive...bit when you consider the local Travel Inn charges over £60 for one night, the extra few pounds are well worthwhile for the quality of decor, the fantastic bathroom and the large room. All in all i will continue to use this hotel. My only complaint, albeit a minor one, is the size of the pool. If you are going for a frenitic swim, forget it. The pool is the size of a large L shaped puddle !!
