read the reviews driving towards Dundee on business with my partner, was looking forward to checking into this old victorian building.... But... i was so disappointed, if it wasn't so late,cold and very dark outside i would have asked my partner to turn away and find another hotel/B&B.
The lady who checked us in was very pleasant and took us up to our room, my first impression was it reminded me of an old aged nursing home, very large room but so basic, and so cold,the bathroom as cramped and also very cold, and not very inviting to have a shower.
Was recommended where to eat, thats another story!!!.
Breakfast was ok, but really nothing exceptional and certainly not very Scottish!!
Sorry but we will not be returning, very good reviews from various people, but really not sure if this is the same place as we stayed in.
