Nice B&B, in an old nice house located near the town center. Rooms are not really modern, but overall they are comfortable. The big plus is the friendly host. She will look after you and with a small price difference, she will setup a really nice breakfast in the morning.

the cleanest place i've ever stayed anywhere and its run by a lovely lady who provides a very tasty fried breakfast. I have stayed here multiple times now, 4 times I think. It has been a few years and the place is as well kept as it always was. Would always recomend.

We arrived in Dundee without a forward booking and tried to find a place to stay. We stumbled upon Alcorn Guesthouse and didn't start with good impressions due to all the Hindu and Buddhist idols on display in reception. Lalitha asked us our budget, knocked 20 pounds off our top price and then added 3 pounds each for breakfast. Extraordinary!...

Close to local amenities and without any parking problems (street parking at front door) this is a very comfortable B & B. The proprietor is a lovely lady who gives a warm welcome to all her guests, many of whom visit regularly and have become friends. The rooms are spacious and very clean, wifi is available throughout the building. Shops...

It was the only open B&B in the street at that time of the year (!) Very convenient host, she didn't charge us for the continental breakfast. The rooms are massive and the bathroom is clean, but the sheets are a bit too short for the beds.

First impressions - taxi driving into the street, noticing it's a residential area. The guest house from the outside, looked a bit dated, but clean. The owner, a very friendly lady, could do anything for us, even four loud young girls. Even the next day, she was saying she was listening out for us, "wondering where the girls are", and...

Nice little place adjacent to the (few) restaurants in the area. Very friendly owner, who went so far as to go out and buy vegetarian sausages for us. The rooms are small but clean and convenient for groups of more than two people (semi-separate accommodations within mini-apartments). However, no soap or shampoo for the shower, and the curtains did not...
