Sure, it is getting a little old but our room was gleamingly clean and cheap.
On the main drag - but quiet.
Close enough to the centre to walk everywhere.
We were only in town for the weekend and I don’t think the kitchenette would have done us for longer. But if you want a simple unpretentious place to sleep then the Colonial on Tay was more than ok.

We booked the 2 bdrm apartment and I have to say that the rooms were very spacious and warm that was because the proprietor had the heating on when we arrived. As it was a very bleak day with it being ranining and extremely cold. We were impressed by standard of this motel especially for the very reasonable tariff. We will certainly stay here again.

Room tip: We stayed in the two bdrm apartment and it was very roomy and warm

Booked a basic unit for two but ours had the bedroom separate from the kitchen/lounge area. This gave us so much space. the bathroom was by comparison quite small but all beautifully clean. Really comfortable bed and no traffic noise. TV in both living space and bedroom. Good kitchen with all you would need to cook a meal if you so wished. Good location handy to city. The proprietor had the heating on when we arrived.

Looks lovely from outside and just as comfortable inside. We had the family room (only because that it was all that was left). Large rooms, yes bathroom is a bit small, but it is adequate. Nice clean and modern with clean kitchenette. Enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Owners kindly helped out with an injury.

I seem to be going against the trend with this review, but I like to tell it like it is! There are a large number of motels along Tay Road, and this Colonial looks attractive from the outside. However, our motel room is dated in its design, and in my view is badly designed. The front living/dining area is large and attractive and leads to a galley kitchen which functions well with its sink, fridge, microwave and hot plate. This then leads to a shower/vanity/toilet area which is all partitioned, small and cramped. The shower enclosure is roomy, but the water saving flow is not satisfactory. And then there is the bedroom which is also small with the queen bed taking up most of the room, and with the pillow end against the window. I quickly decide to use the front room as a dressing room! However, there are positives too. We enjoy the continental breakfast provided. And the unit is clean, quiet and warm, there are two good sized TVs, and electric blankets. There are carpets on the floor, and on arrival the unit is nicely presented. The bedroom has a wardrobe, case rest and mirror. The free wifi works well, and there is a power board which is useful for recharging, I would make this a 3+ if that were possible!
