Review of Premier Inn Dundee Centre

Written by Karen Bryan

I stayed at the Premier Inn Dundee Centre on a weekday night in early November 2015. The room cost £35 on the non-refundable Premier Saver rate, booked a couple of months in advance.

This Premier Inn is in a great location on the banks of the Tay Estuary with direct access to the waterfront walkway. There’s free parking and it’s opposite the railway station. It only takes a few minutes to walk up to the shopping centre.

I phoned the hotel a few days prior to my arrival to request an estuary view room. Premier Inn use 0870 numbers, which are chargeable on both our BT inclusive calls and my mobile monthly contract. However, I was able to find the standard geographical number, included in my call plans, on the SayNoTo0870 website.

Upon check-in, I was given a free parking pass for my car. I checked that it would be OK to leave my car there until late afternoon the next day.

My request for an estuary view was granted. Unfortunately, it was pretty foggy and murky during my stay.

There was a small, tall round table at one side of the bed, which I placed in front of the window, so I could enjoy the view when I ate my self-provided breakfast of cereal, fruit and brioche in the room.

There’s a Tesco supermarket close by if you want a DIY breakfast. You can pay for breakfast at the adjacent restaurant, but you can have a weekday lunch at the nearby Jimmy Chungs Chinese buffet for less than the price of breakfast at the hotel restaurant.

The room looked as though it had been recently refurbished. It was a good size, with a large desk and a few shelves at the sides of the clothes hanging rail.

I didn’t hear any exterior noise, I assume that the rain would’ve deterred any late night revellers from walking along the footpath.

If you can find a room at the Premier Inn Dundee Centre for £35, or under, a night, it’s good value for money for a comfortable room in a central location with free parking.
