This fantastic apartment could not get any more central to Dundee City Centre. A 30 second walk from the Overgate Shopping Centre. Its warm and welcoming interior will truly allow you to relax before heading out to experience Dundee’s oldest and newest delights. Perfect for a quick getaway or a business trip alike. Very easy to get to from the bus station, train station or by car. Both bus and train stations are within a 10 minute walk of the apartment and both take you through the town centre, so you will get your bearings pretty quick.
The apartment is very clean and warm. It benefits from a 50” LCD TV with an Amazon Fire Stick with active Netflix account, Sky Fibre Broadband/Wi-fi, dining facilities and a fully equipped Kitchen. Note it's on the 2nd (second) floor of a shared building and unfortunately does not have an elevator.
