Warm welcome, very clean and tidy. Beds are amazing comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. This is the first review I've ever given but felt compelled as this place is great. If I'm ever staying in the Dundee area this will definitely be my first choice.

Recently while traveling in Scotland, we spent a couple of days in Dundee to see local sights. After making our initial reservations, events required us to make a change. Heather and Martin made the change with no problem to accommodate our new schedule. Their B&B is a lovely place to stay and nicely located in Dundee in a quiet residential...

We stayed here one night. Gorgeous clean bright fresh room. Comfy bed and nice pillows. Breakfast was lovely . Very pleasant host without being too intrusive . Will definitely return! Very close to our daughters halls and within walking distance to Dundee centre.

We stayed for one night. The accommodation was spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was probably the best we have ever had at a guesthouse. We would definitely recommend it to you.

We stayed two nights and everything was perfect. Rooms were nice and clean, warm with all amenities. Only downside was probably low shower pressure. Lovely hosts, breakfast and advice on where to visit in the area. Would recommend.

My husband and I stayed here whilst visiting his father. We were greater on arrival by Heather the owner. We had a very welcoming chat with her. The hotel was exceptionally clean and the room immaculate. The bedding was luxurious and the room and bathroom was very spacious. Unfortunately we did not make breakfast but previous reviews on the breakfasts...

Heather the landlady was charming and extremely helpful. I was travelling on my own and it was reassuring to be able to ask her for directions and for information. The room was spotless and quiet - perfect for a good nights sleep. Breakfast served in a lovely bright room, was very good especially the fluffy scrambled eggs and smoked salmon...

I look forward to staying at the Shaftesbury Lodge whenever I'm in Dundee. There's always a warm welcome from the lovely Heather and the rooms are without fail clean, comfortable and well appointed. The hotel building itself is characterful and well looked-after. The breakfasts are simply excellent in choice, quality and quantity. There's lots of free on-street parking nearby and...

Lovely place to stay. Quiet, comfortable, generously proportioned room, fantastic cooked-to-order breakfast, impeccable service. Definitely would use again. The walk into town isn't too bad either. There are some lovely places to eat and drink just down the road too.

Staying at the Shaftesbury Lodge is like staying at the older, mostly comfortable home of a friend or relative. The folks that run the inn are very nice and helpful, they make a very nice breakfast, the beds are comfortable, there is a free wifi network, the area is generally quiet and peaceful, there are nice flowers out front, and...

Many thanks for taking the time to write your review - it is obvious that you have taken great care to think about what you wanted to say and constructive feedback is always helpful. We made it a priority in November to put in a thermostatic shower independent of the bath taps. Martin has also replaced the flush in the...
