Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa

Quite simply, one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Clean, contemporary and airy; the Apex City Hotel & Spa really is superb.

We were lucky enough to bag a double deluxe room with a huge, comfortable bed, overlooking the River Tay. Coupled with the Spa and swimming pool, it was one of the most luxurious breaks we'd taken.

With award winning tourist attractions sharing space with breathtaking scenery, everyone can combine the attractions that suit them with a slice of the Scottish lifestyle for a few days. Dundee is the home of the romantic Glamis Castle, the spectacular and rugged Highland Glens and Victorian markets.

There are also world class leisure facilities, such as golf courses, hiking trails and healthy fishing areas. However, it is the wealth of festivals and events that may surprise you. With the Dundee Flower Show the Arbroath Seafest and the Real Ale Festival all accessible in Dundee, you cannot help but fall in love with the area.

If the wealth of festivals and cultural events is not enough to give you a taste of Dundee then the traditional foods available at cafes and restaurants will. There are also international eating out options. Accommodation is also abundant and features options to suit any budget but you will need to book in advance during festival weeks to guarantee your room.
