Dundee & Angus Congress
Evening chaps

I've been out of touch for a bit and am just catching up.

Jonathan - I think you are absolutely right re price inflation due to the chess weekend. It's something that has happened consistently for a number of years, so it can't be coincidence. It's also why I try to keep an eye out for decent offers elsewhere so I can suggest alternatives to the Monifieth hotel - the less business they get from us the better as far as I am concerned, just because of this profiteering. Having said that I think they end up losing business because of that policy: a couple of years ago I checked their website for availability on the Friday of the weekend - they had rooms available but were still asking an inflated price. When we first came to David Lloyds (Next Generation at that time) the hotel was asking sensible prices and was filled to the point they were having to turn enquiries away (they were sent to the hotel Robin mentions).

Latest Premier Inn prices are still £35 each night at Dundee East and the same at Dundee West (about 20 minutes drive).

Latest Travelodge prices:

Dundee Centre - Fri £38, Sat £52
Strathmore Ave - Fri £30, Sat £33
Dundee (Kingsway West) - Fri £30, Sat £33
