I stayed at the Apex for two nights. When I first checked in (around 6pm) I was given my key and went up to my room - to find that it was not made up and had bedclothes and sheets all over the floor. I went back down to reception, where I was offered another room on the 4th floor. I had requested a quiet room on the top floor and pointed this out to the staff at the desk. I was then given another room on the top floor (room 509).
The room was generally clean, but had some issues: black marks on the net curtains, definite mould in the shower, and the veneer along the edge of the bath was peeling away. It was a quiet room and had a nice view over the dock and the water to the right.
This hotel is really let down by its bar however. I met a friend for drinks there and we ordered cocktails. The list on the drinks menu was very short and I ordered a classic martini, which was not on it. I was told that since this was not on the drinks menu I would have to pay for all the ingredients separately, which made it a lot more expensive than any of the cocktails on the menu. This seems absolutely ridiculous, as the ingredients in a martini are few and a lot less expensive than those contained in many of the listed drinks.
Furthermore, service (although generally pleasant) was really very slow despite it being very quiet. This really put me off drinking in the hotel bar again.
I asked for a newspaper for both mornings, and it did not show up either day.
I stayed on a room only basis as there are plenty of cafes nearby to eat.
In short, the Apex Dundee has a lot of work to do. I was pretty disappointed in the experience overall. I will be visiting Dundee again in future, but I'm really not sure if I'll stay there again.
