I stayed in Shaftesbury Lodge for one night whilst visiting Dundee on business. I like a hotel that is quiet, comfortable and clean. Shaftesbury Lodge is situated in a quiet suburb within easy distance of the University and the city centre, good restaurants are near by, and there is good roadside parking (no pay & display required). The bed I...

We have just returned from a most enjoyable weekend in Dundee and stayed at the Shaftesbury Lodge once againfor 3 nights. This is our third stay in 2 years at the Shaftesbury and it is such a pleasure to be looked after so well by the owners Heather and Martin. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable.

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.

We only got to stay one night at the Shaftesbury Lodge, but we got a great nights' sleep and felt that it was a great value. Upon arrival Heather provided us with walking directions to a number of restaurants (including a wonderful Indian place) and offered to help us with our luggage & the stairs.

What a discovery! Individually decorated, very spacious rooms with excellent facilities. Our only regret was that, after a copious evening meal at the local Italian, we were unable to do justice to the fantastic choice of breakfast dishes. Being a little way from the centre of Dundee, parking is easy and free. All in all, it's a winning combination.

Stayed here for 2 night while visiting daughter at her Uni down the road. Really clean, large room, very friendly owners and really really great breakfasts. I would highly recommend staying here whilst in Dundee. We will stay here every time we visit Dundee.

Not old fashioned at all. Fresh decoration and high ceilings make for spacious bedrooms and comfortable lounge. The dining room has Rene Mackintosh style chairs. Delicious breakfast. Free wifi. It is a 30 minute walk to town but there are plenty of buses or £5 taxi. Friendly welcome. We couldn't get into Premier Inn and are pleased as we wouldn't...

We are two Canadian couples who stayed at the Shaftesbury in late August. The rooms were a nice size and clean. The breakfasts menu was varied and the food was great. The Shaftesbury has lots of character. We walked to Drouthys for supper the first night (a bar with good food) and liked it enough to go back again. Thanks...
