The girl we dealt with was lovely - very pleasant and friendly and seemed to run the place single handed. The place was poor. We were up 3 flights and on the way up the wallpaper was torn and grubby and seemed to get worse the higher we went. Shared bathroom with a very grubby carpet with very dirty edges.... More

I stopped in here after visiting St Andrews and enjoyed my stay. Irene is a great host and makes a very tasty breakfast. I would recommend booking one of the rooms with an ensuite bathroom, rather than the smaller rooms with shared bathroom.

We recently had to travel to Arbroath for a funeral and chose Blairdene as it was very central and close to where we needed to be. Irene was a fantastic host, very welcoming and after an exhausting trip, she offered us porridge and coffee. Her porridge is homemade and absolutely amazing. It was so tasty and filling, we didn't need... More

Made to feel welcome on arrival and after a 7 hour journey a pot of tea was a nice touch Very nice talkative host showed me to my delightful room that had everything you could want. Breakfast was hearty warm and welcoming...shame I was only here the one night, would definitely stay again.....good value for money

Just like other reviewers, I found the hostess to be very apologetic, particularly about the breakfast. That was before we'd even seen our rooms. She was very nice and likeable but seemed to not be in control of the running of the place, lacking in confidence. As others have said, it could do with a spruce up and with repairs... More

This is a very tired run down place with no visible attempt to make it better. Carpet was very dirty, windows were cracked, very old cheap and broken furniture. The hostess was pleasant but kept making mistakes and then came her apologies. She apologized for over cooking part of my breakfast but she still served it to me! Amazing. Also... More

Stayed June 2014 for a week, which seemed 6 days too long for me! Central location is all it had going for it, the place is in desperate need of a good clean. Don't be surprised to see broken windows or wood chip paper everywhere and shoddy painting in every room. How this got a 3* rating from the Tourist... More
