This was a one night stay in Dundee. The staff were all very professional and helpful. The room was clean. The shower curtain however did not go all around the shower. The view was off the carpark and I mean if I had leaned out the window i could just about touch the carpark. The noise in the hotel was terrible. no sort of noise insolation in rooms. So late night returners and early morning risers made the night short! Also, even though we had booked for breakfast at 9.30 the maid came in the room at 9am! she didn't knock and our door had no second inside lock. That was embarrassing! For the price it was ok and included breakfast, which is just ok. Sadly other guests not wearing masks was a problem in the hotel.

Lovely 3 night stay here, rooms very clean and the bed was very comfortable, daily breakfast was staggered times to save congestion at peak times, alround service from the staff was excellent, Jim was very efficient at breakfast service. All in all well done to the management for having such well trained, friendly and attentive staff.

We stayed over night as a stop off on route to Northern Scotland. Hotel location is very central and parking is provided in the multi story car park, which an access link to the hotel. This was approx. £10 for the night, no discounts from the hotel. Staff were all polite and friendly and check in process was quick. Room itself was standard holiday Inn express, but comfortable for one night. Room was on the front which does have traffic noise if the window is open. Being a warm night, this was a pain. I did enjoy the extra security that an active room card is needed to access the room corridor. Especially as street access is on ground level and reception is on 3, so no security to enter the building from the street. Breakfast under covid was good and even though the hot is served to you was plentiful. Half hour slots were booked and it worked as wasn’t crowded. The cold items (cereals, toast, pastries etc etc) were all placed out for self service as was the juices and tea. This was good as other holiday inn express we have stayed at, everything is served for you and limited choice. Overall an ideal stop over, central for town and bars and restaurants 2 minute walk away. I can highly recommend Rancho Pancho if you like Mexican.

Booked a 2 night stay here, travelling up from Newcastle, we arrived on Thursday, at lunchtime, checked in early as room was ready, Klaudia on reception was super nice, very efficient and explained everything we needed to ensure our stay was covid secure.. Liked the security of the key cards to enter the floors and rooms, hotel was not very busy, I emailed for a quiet room, but got 210 facing the garage.. Room itself was usual holiday room, comfy beds, nice bathroom, no fridge, breakfast was OK, one way system, staff cleaned constantly, only complaint was young children running up and down our corridor screaming at 7,33am, and Still at it at breakfast at 9am, would have liked a view of the tay Bridge but maybe next time.....
