Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We found this B&B to be perfect for our needs while visiting the V&A in Dundee. It was in a great location and very peaceful, comfortable and warm. The on-street parking was just a little way down the road, and Barbara and Douglas were very welcoming hosts. Thank you.

We stayed for 2 nights to see Dundee heading further north to celebrate. The hotel is in the conservation area of the city in a very discreet pretty road. We were made to feel at home straight away by our hosts, met us in person and very pleasant despite us arriving late. We only booked to stay one night as we didn’t know what Dundee would be like but the hotel was so nice and the bed was soooo comfy that we stayed an extra night :) Short walk (downhill) into town and lots to see and do - you could easy spend a weekend and not be bored. Breakfast was brilliant - i just wish I had tried the fish!!

I stayed at the Dunlaw House Hotel for nearly 2 years whilst working in Dundee. The owners are very friendly and professional. The rooms and staff are great. This became a real home from home for me whilst away from the family on business. I can highly recommend.

We stayed two different times at the Dunlaw House while in Dundee. It is a beautiful spot which was a quick walk from the city center. The home and garden were lovely and the owners were very gracious hosts, friendly and knowledgeable about Dundee. We felt very comfortable there and the breakfast was wonderful with homemade jam which is fitting for Dundee! We will certainly be back to enjoy this bed and breakfast again.

We booked this hotel based on the information supplied on the website but found it to be lacking. The hotel was listed as having parking - there is none so cars have to be parked on the street some distance from the hotel. Not good enough. The room had no en-suite facilities with one bathroom shared between a number of rooms. Perhaps good enough in the 1970's but not today and certainly not good enough if you have a deadline like a graduation to meet first thing in the morning. The bedroom we were allocated, while clean and tidy had one bedside lamp serving a double bed and the room light didn't work. To say the bedroom was tight is an understatement. There was literally one foot of space to walk between the bed and the wall to get to the other side of the room. We weren't asked when we wanted breakfast, we were told it was 8am-9.30am, end of story. We had to be on our way to the graduation at 8.45am so breakfast was rushed and as we had no time to change after eating it meant eating breakfast formally dressed. We weren't alone in this criticism as the lady at the next table only had time for a fruit before leaving for a job interview. The owners and staff were all pleasant however but I was left feeling it was a case of the visitor having to fit in with what was offered. I would rate it is expensive for what is on offer.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Dunlaw. The room was very comfortable, the ensuite quite small like many others. The old building has so much character although it's a bit of a walk from town and up a pretty steep hill. The breakfast was high quality, piping hot and plenty of it.

I needed a room at the last minute in Dundee and Dunlaw House popped up on the internet search. The B&B is located on a quiet crescent about 10 minutes walk from the waterfront, 15 from the station. Parking is on street but easy. My room was a comfortable twin, clean and with plenty of hot water. The owners friendly and helpful. Breakfast from 8am on a weekday set me up for a productive day.

Comfortable small hotel that feels like home. A quiet, comfortable environment. To the city center, take a 5 min walk downhill, back uphill, which may seem heavy. Ideal for short or longer (for myself week) stay. A friendly couple takes care of clients. Breakfast ok, fresh fruit or berries on offer. There are various options available. I would highly recommend if you want a quiet hotel near the center. Carpet mats do not fit allergic.

The Dunlaw House Hotel is close enough to town to walk in. There are brilliant views of the Tay and a wonderful garden with outdoor seating. The heating is good, the beds comfortable, the breakfasts extensive and the welcome is warm.

A lovely hotel. We had a en suite , double room, which was very comfortable. The Arbroath Smokies for breakfast were a real treat. It is a bit out of town up a steep hill but this gives good views across the Tay.
