St. Andrews Touring

Once the guys were back Jason and I headed out to check out the details for our next 2 rounds at St. Andrews. Want to make sure we are at the right place at the right time! Once Darcy was done napping we headed out to check out the ruins of the St. Andrews Castle and Cathedral. The cathedral ruins were quite amazing as you could see the outline of the cathedral and there were sings ...

... greens. This was my favorite course so far maybe just because I finally played better and kept the score in the 80's. We played with a father and son from USA, dad from New Jersey and son from Connecticut. The son bought his dad the trip as it was his dad's dream to come here some day. And dad had a smile on his face the entire time even though this was his 6 round in 5 days and they were going to play another 18 this ...

... Europe & The Mediterranean to travel with friends. 3 & 1/2 months in total. The walking tour was very interesting. We figure our guide had to be mid to late 80's and has lived in St. Andrews all his life. He told a lot of fun stories you wouldn't here anywhere else. Like Bob Hope hitting his 18th tee shot so far to the right it crashed through the ...

... first hand some native wildlife and birds. Well our expectation turned to disappointment in a very short time. For our entry fee, we were informed that we could view the birdlife through viewing binoculars located in a tiny "museum and information centre." Well we looked through the binoculars and found about 3 seagulls and 4 sparrows. As for native wildlife, well they were even more sparse than the birds. The closest we got to an animal was a soft, stuffed toy ...

... further up the coast and discovered an amazingly huge castle - Bamburgh Castle, set on the sea side defending the North at the North Sea. It is a very impressive castle which we wandered around for about an hour or so. The fog really began to roll in so we decided it was time to press on towards Dundee which would be our home base for the next couple ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa Dundee

    Nice bright hotel

    from

    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.

    recommended.

    A Bonnie Hotel in Bonnie Dundee

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Nice Pool......but

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Not everything it trys to be

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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.
