“Bit naughty calling it Dundee Centre but good for an overnight...”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

Calling this this Dundee Centre is a bit like Premier's free Wi-Fi claim - it is a slightly misleading! It is by the river next to a new development on a busy dual carriageway - still surrounded by road works in fact. But it's a nice enough hotel for an overnight. Usual Premier Inn rooms, clean and well kitted out. Staff as usual were excellent. As is common with Premier Inns a pub next-door was used for meals - including breakfast - but we didn't use it this time.

If you accept it's address - and it is next to the wonderful Discovery Centre - visit Scott's ship - then it's great value, comfortable and quiet.

Room Tip: Better if you can get a river view - unless you like dual carriageways and car-parks.

Its next to the train station, and right on the river. I'd give it 3-4 *s, as a competent chain. But I give it 2 *s, as they advertised free WiFi, but only give you 30 minutes, before you have to buy more. It doesn't cost much more, but they lied.

Dear Billw07,

Thank you for your feedback. At Premier Inn we endeavour to offer the best value quality stay. Here at Premier Inn we do only offer 30 Minutes free wifi and we do advertise this as 30 minutes free wifi not just free wifi. You may however have seen a free wifi sign displayed the adjoining Table Table Restaurant as they do offer free wifi.

I do hope that you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to see you again soon.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was clean with enough space for all our stuff. General hotel noise was kept to a minimum.
Very close to Dundee centre for shopping, food etc.
The only thing we wanted more of were tea bags/milk/sugar etc. in the room. But overall a very nice stay.

Great stay in family room. Good to have 2 proper single beds for kids rather than usual shared sofa bed.

Lovely location right on waterfront with Discovery Point next door.

Friendly staff...nothing too much trouble.

Thank you for a lovely stay :-)

This proved an excellent overnight stop with clean/modern rooms & helpful staff .Hotel is situated on the river side & while we had a view of the Car Park & the Road beyond the room was quiet enough for a good nights sleep. We took advantage of the meal package which included 2 Course Evening meal & one drink along with Breakfast which exceeded our expectations .It is also in easy walking distance of the City Centre .

Very friendly staff on site, and had a great stay here. Would definitely stay again if back in Dundee.

The breakfast was reasonable for the price and there was plenty of items to choose from which was well presented.
