“Spotless and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Our room was a lovely front double bedroom.
Large high ceilings and plenty of room.
The whole place was spotless.
Owner was very friendly and welcoming.
Breakfast was delicious.
Location very good just a short stroll to centre - we took our bikes.
Parking on street outside hotel.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have an en suite - make sure you ask for it - if this is what you want.

A terrific, Spotless Guest house and a great welcome --- thanks
Front bedroom was a great size, one double bed and a single bed, En-suite was also a good size and all spotlessly clean. Breakfast was good -- and at a time to suit you. we would highly recommend.

Good value guest house. Friendly owner who works hard to make your stay enjoyable. some rooms are not en suite. Full breakfast if you wish. Fairly centrally placed about half mile from centre. Parking easy and free in residential street outside.

Room Tip: Book early to get en suite facilities.

Lovely owner, very welcoming. Room which was a family room, two adjoining rooms with ensuite, was immaculate. Two options for breakfast, continental or traditional cooked - both lovely.

Owner also telephoned taxis for us on several occasions as we were attending Graduation ceremony and weather not good and the car parking facilities in central Dundee on those two days not good.
