Holiday Inn Express® Dundee, near the train station in the centre of town, is a quick walk from Dundee railway station and from Discovery Point, where a ship that sailed to Antarctica, Captain Scott’s RRS Discovery, is now a fascinating museum. The hotel, which offers parking next door for a small fee, is less than half an hour’s drive from the world-famous St. Andrews golf course.

Business guests are a short stroll from the Dundee & Angus Convention Bureau, as well as Dundee Technology Park. Back at the hotel, two fully equipped meeting rooms with catering and free WiFi are convenient places to hold a workshop or seminar.

Wellgate and Overgate shopping centres are within walking distance of the hotel, and The McManus, a museum of Scottish art in a Gothic Revival building, is five minutes away on foot. Caird Hall, Dundee’s grand concert hall, is right around the corner. A 10-minute drive east along the coast is the 15th-century Broughty Castle Museum, with views of the Tay estuary.

Begin the day with the hotel’s hot Express Start Breakfast in the Great Room, and end it with a refreshing drink in the bar. You can watch TV sports in the lounge, or order a bite to eat from the evening bar menu.
