Alcorn Guest House
Ranked #12 of 23 Dundee B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 22, 2009

I stayed at the Alcorn Guest House for 3 nights last week while on business in Dundee. Having stayed at a similarly priced bed and breakfast in Dundee the previous week, which left a lot to be desired, I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the Alcorn.

The room was a good size, clean and warm with good storage space. Complimentary tea and coffee were available in my room and the room was serviced daily.

The breakfast was very good with a range of cereals and full cooked breakfast available with plenty of tea, coffee and orange juice.

There was no dog when I stayed last week as the Guest House is under new management.

The guest house is walking distance from the city centre but a 2 minute walk takes you to the nearest bus stop which is serviced by regular buses which head into the city centre.

The Alcorn is a very reasonably priced B&B and I would be more than happy to stay here in the future.

I stayed here for 2 nights. You need to be careful to go to Hyndford Street and not Hyndford Place!

Room was good value (£25 per night for a single in March 2006, including full English breakfast), fairly small, with TV and basin in room, but no soap or shampoo. Tea and coffee making facilities were included in the room. I had to use a shared bathroom and I had to go through the breakfast room to get there, which was a bit embarrassing if you didn't want to dress properly to get to the shower in the morning. Not all rooms will be like that!

Breakfast was fantastic - full English breakfast with as much coffee and orange juice as you liked, plus, if you wanted it, cereal and fresh fruit.

Staff were very friendly. They have a dog, so if you don't like dogs, be warned.

It probably takes about 20 mins to walk to the centre of Dundee, but you pass shops etc well before that.

I would recommend it.
