The room wasn't clean, the bed wasn't comfy, the internet was intermittent and the room was cold with no apparent way of adjusting the heat. The rate was pretty cheap though, so I guess you get what you pay for. It's not to the Standard of Holiday Inn Express hotels in Canada.

Although its location is perfect and there is a carpark on the hotelfloor, the hotel has nothing more as what you will find in any city of the world. It has no soul but certainly a view on the bridge. Breakfast (included) was not of a kind i would expect in Scotland in that price range. NO bacon, tastless scrambled...

Very posh looking for a franchise. Great staff, beautiful room and good location. Only downfall i can think of is the lack of a/c and the noise from the road when you open the window.

One star is for the bed, it was comfy. Shame I couldn't get much sleep in it. Hotel is next to a very busy road with constant (and I mean CONSTANT) traffic noise so you can't even open a window. There was little (if any) soundproofing in the room and there was an event in a marquee about 400m away...

The hotel is in a good location, the bed is comfy and the rooms are equipped with most things you would need for an overnight stay. Staff are a bit scatty and the reception only ever seemed to have one person there working and so there was often a queue. I have to agree with others on here in that...

Sadly for 3 nights we had to endure noise of traffic from Tay Bridge junction - loud enough to disturb sleep when window was closed.
