“IF YOUR A WHEELCHAIR USER FORGET THIS PLACE-STAFF TOLD ME THERE IS NO ACCESS WHATSOEVER !!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

I have never actually been inside this hotel,as I have been informed by a member of staff that there is no wheelchair access into this hotel at all.This is not made at all clear in the list of facilities that are available at these premises.They really need to update their information,so that potential guests are aware that,if they,or any of their party are wheelchair users they cannot even access this hotel's public areas.I live in the City,and hopefully this will prevent anyone outwith Dundee making a mistake and booking here.GIVE IT A MISS,there are plenty of other good quality hotels in Dundee which will accommodate wheelchair users.

Room Tip: The hotel is completely unsuitable for wheelchair users according to the staff,therefore I cannot re...

The craigtay hotel has the most friendly staff I like this hotel
due to the price is good and the rooms are well kept clean. The food is very good choice and a short walk to Dundee city centre with lots of shops.

Upon arrival the hotel looks very outdated and worn out from the outside with a very strange comic like sign.....the restaurant and bar area is set and presented to vey high standard....although the rooms need a major overhaul as they are really outdated!!....ok for a half decent budget hotel

This hotel cancelled my stay on the day I was due to stay. I had booked four weeks in advance and even checked the evening before my stay that everything was okay. I was given two different reasons for this by two people. I was sent to a terrible guest house with a room with no bathroom.

Room Tip: Only book here if don't mind taking a gamble on where you are going to sleep that night.

I've stayed here a few times now. The rooms are somewhat shabby and tired, but are clean and quite large. The staff are great - friendly, efficient and help to make the stay enjoyable despite the worn out rooms. I've eaten in the restaurant once, and the chilli and rice was very tasty. The restaurant and bar area seem a lot more modern than the rest of the hotel. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from city centre, and going the other way, a 5 minute bus journey to Broughty Ferry (seaside suburb with lots of bars and restaurants). One big minus was that there was no wifi accessible in the hotel rooms, and I accessed it in the bar area with only limited success. I've found that I can book this at short notice and the price is still very low (unlike the Travelodges in the area, where the price rises as you get close to the booking date).

The restraunt name and logo is the most misleading I've ever seen. 'Hungy Mary's' has a cartoon character logo and leads you to believe its a road side cafe. I believe they are aware this is misleading and they are going to change it. The entrance, reception and dining areas have been refurbished and are very modern and tasteful. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was restraunt quality and reasonable priced and theres A specials board. The rooms are rough and haven't seen such decor since 1974. They are new owners and after enquiring they are upgrading the rooms this year before Xmas. We enjoyed our stay and at the same time although the rooms where shabby, the bed was extremely comfy. What else do you need?

I stayed at the"craigtay" hotel for one night and found the staff to be fantastic! I had a hoot in the bar after hours and the room served its purpose clean and basic. The food was excellent, positive review from this happy camper :)
