This hotel is just two minutes’ walk from the train station, housed in a refurbished Victorian mansion that retains many of the original features from when it was built in 1899. There’s a chic brasserie, snazzy bar, and there are several spacious suites among the 91 rooms if you want to push the boat out.

ADDRESS: 2 South Union Street, Dundee, DD1 4BF
This waterfront hotel is a great choice for travellers who are keen to lower their carbon footprint: step off a train, exit the railway station, walk 10 metres and you’re there. Think of it as a modern reincarnation of a classic railway hotel, complete with a bar and cafe.
