Glasgow and beyond - Sunday 8th June was another quiet lazy day. Today was set aside for visiting some of Ross's Scottish relatives but as it turned out some were off in another city but we did catch up with his Aunt Sarah. Apparently we will catch up with a heap of his relatives next Saturday when we are back in Glasgow. We travelled across to the other side of Glasgow for the visit but returned with Aunt Sarah to Ross's cousins place for a yummie roast ...
A later start than the last couple of days due to tides and restricted transit times at Arbroath Marina. We are off at 07.15 and into a slight sea with fog but a north easterly breeze which means we can sail. Hooray! This doesn't last long and by 09.00 we have the engine running again Karen ...
Up at 4am to catch the ebb tide but no wind so motoring all day passing Aberdeen and Montrose and arriving at Arbroath about 5pm. Raining on and off all day. Not pleasant. Karen feeling Uncle Dick all day Nice little marina entrance to which is restricted to 3 hrs either side if high tide ...
... we were in the exact right place. Lair QQ 70.
We proceeded by bus into Dundee to meet the registrar and find out what they had on record. We obtained the records and I was very surprised to learn that my great grandfather was a law clerk. A very similar profession to my own for 35 years. Following our day in Dundee we made our way back for a lovely dinner at the Cullaig Guest House cooked ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa Dundee
Nice bright hotel
Well run hotel with nice modern-style bedrooms, good bathrooms, and comfortable bed, plus good breakfast in the high ceilinged restaurant.
Only 5 mins walk from the train station, and plenty of free parking.
A Bonnie Hotel in Bonnie Dundee
In Dundee on business and recently stayed at the Apex City Quay. Modern, clean and comfortable. The rooms are very spacious and light. Nice breakfast but horrendous bar prices!!! Staff, generally all very young were incredibly helpful and friendly.
Loved the Apex City Hotel and Spa
Stayed here one night in July 2004 and found it excellent. Got a great rate through lastminute and found the room to be excellent. All the staff were really friendly and the food very good indeed. They also have a gym with some really excellent equipment and the pool looked good as well. Definately recommended.
Great family weekend break
We took our 3 girls (9,7 & 6) for 3 nights here last week. We had a large room with 2 double beds & a single & a lovely view from the 3rd floor & lovely toiletries.
We found all the staff very courteous & friendly. The spa was excellent & although the kids could only go in from 9-11am & 2-7pm we found this enough!
Breakfast was very grand & filled us for the rest of the day. We didn't eat in the hotel at night as it didn't look very child friendly (perfect for a couple). There is a shopping centre right across the road with buffet chinese/buffet indian & domino pizza which we took advantage of.
A most enjoyable weekend, though the bar was very busy on Friday night (graduation ball) & Saturday (a wedding). Dead on Sunday night!
My 13 yr old daughter and I stayed here for the May bank holiday weekend. Unfortunately there was no hot food, or even a hot drink available when we arrived as the kitchen was flooded. This meant the Metro Brasserie was closed for eating on the Friday evening, thank gawd for Domino's pizza (across the road)!
Very nice and modern
Stayed at the Apex in April 2004, Very nice and modern hotel. Definatel deserving of a 4 star rating. Let us check in early because we were with a small tired child. Very nice room with a beautiful view of the river, harbour and out to the sea. Floor to ceiling windows as well. Certain hours we could take our 3 year old into the spa's pool and they even had a Domino's pizza within a 1 minute walk from the hotel doors (Definately made our son happy). My husband didn't like the breakfast (they put maple syrup on his bacon) but I thought it was pretty good. I would personally stay there again, It had a great location too.
I just returned from a 10 day journey in Scotland. We ended our stay with 2 days in Dundee at the Apex. I had high hopes due to the discriptions on the hotel web site, however we ended up being quite disappointed. The hotel itself is fine..the rooms are nice and the beds are comfortable but there were problems. Check in was 2:30pm and our room was not ready till 4pm. Our room seemed dirty..the bathrobes they give you were shabby..the bathroom smelled moldy. Then the service was less than stunning either. The breakfast buffet was large and well stocked but the wait staff was confused and disjointed. We also tryed to have dinner in the resturant on our last night and again the staff was lack luster. They told us they had run out of menus when the resturant was only 1/3 full. So my husband and I shared one menu while those around us had plenty!! Very odd. The food was adverage at best. I will give them one bright spot..we needed to check in for our flight online and they allowed us to borrow a computer in the office cause it was Easter sunday. Yea for Paul and providing a bit of outstanding service. However I will not stay there again it is over priced and overhyped for what you get. The staff needs to sharpen up. They are not good at all.
Needs a better management!
Stayed in Oct. 2003 with my friend. I chose this hotel because it is new and thought this hotel is better than the other 4-star hotel in Dundee which I usually stay. Everything was new and modern (the other words, "Hotel Ikea") but the management is quite bad. The service is OK, young staff are not so friendly. The house keeping is also bad, maids watch TV while working in guest rooms and only do beds. They never clean the bathroom properly or clear the used glasses and cups.
The spa is not impressive at all, this hotel definitely needs a work!
Although, the location is good and the hotel has a big car park so you never struggle to find a space. I would not choose this hotel for next time...
We love Dundee!
The new Apex City Quay hotel was definitely the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The rooms were modern and comfortable with amazing views, no matter which side of the hotel you were on. It's positioned right in the centre on the waterfront and is a walk away from some great restaurants and bars. It's also in close proximity to St Andrews. The food was very tasty and we ended our stay with a dip in the pool. We'll certainly stay again.
Brilliant new hotel!
This hotel opened in May 2003. It's stylish and has great design features throughout. We dined and were highly impressed with the food. The Spa is exciting. Dundee will benefit from this brilliant new hotel.
