Taypark House is an elegant Category B Listed former Scots Baronial mansion house dating from circa 1863. It stands nestled away in Dundee's affluent Westend Perth Road area within stunning mature garden grounds which slope from north to south and has outstanding views across the Botanical Gardens towards the River Tay and hills of Fife. The property has recently been sympathetically restored to it's former glory and now boasts 4 master suites all with huge ensuite bathrooms tastefully fitted out in a Victorian style sanitrywear including a luxurious free standing roll top bath complimented with a separate large shower enclosure. There are an additional 2 more modern rooms on the 2nd floor which take full advantage of the 180 degree uninterrupted panoramic views. If you're looking for quality accommodation and a taste of real history with an insight into a Jute Barron's life then Taypark House welcomes you as lord of the manor for the night, weekend or month! With fresh, clean, spacious rooms; friendly staff and delightful period features it's the perfect place to relax, unwind or be inspired. A little history Taypark House was originally built as an impressive home for Alexander Low, flax spinner, of Hillbank Works. It was one of many such mansions and manor houses built for the prosperous flax spinners and jute manufacturers of Dundee's industrial heyday in the nineteenth century and no expense was spared on the interior with the outstanding ornate ceilings and cornice, elaborate white and black marble fireplaces and sandstone stained glass window all still intact. The visitor's first glimpse of Tay Park House, arriving down the winding driveway through grounds is of romantic turrets and elegant decorative carvings, crow-stepped gabling and ornamented parapets, and an entrance doorway decorated with Corinthian columns.

The Manager of Taypark hasn't contacted us to discuss the complaints we made to his day manager so there is no option but to leave a disappointing and worrying review on what we'd hoped was going to be an enjoyable family night away. First impressions at Taypark are a nice

We stayed here just one night on our way through to the highlands. Not sure if it was the time of year but the staff were stretched quite thin, trying to do too many things. The house is stunning, inside and out. We ate dinner at the hotel and while my lasagne was very nice -
