Just a quick review for the Fort Hotel.. A modern, well run bar/restaurant/hotel in Broughty Ferry, Dundee. Recently refurbished to an excellent standard. The beers are very good and the bar is very welcoming. The menu possibly lacks a bit of inspiration but what we had was good. Give it a try, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

This hotel is great, stayed here as part of a wedding group. Wedding was at the Glass Pavillion and the staff at the Fort couldn't have been better. Arrived at 00:30 with no problem, nothing was too much trouble. I was in the ground floor disabled twin room, only just refurbished and was outstanding. Huge wet room bathroom with shower.... More

I have been using this hotel primarily for business for over 15 years. It is great to be treated as a person, not a room number, and the staff always go the extra mile, whether it be a special breakfast order, or going to the wholsalers to get a box of Lees Macaroon bars to take back to England.

I spent 2 nights last week at the Fort. I come to Scotland on Business frequently, and when I am on the East Coast of Scotland I look no further for Accommodation than the FORT! For me it is the staff and the management that make it so special, nothing is too much for them to make your stay all... More

This is not a hotel, it is a pub with rooms. very nice refurbished rooms, but its not a hotel. Its a very busy pub where regulars are more important than paying guests. Food was unexceptional standard pub fayre. It is expensive for what it is (pub with rooms) at £85 bed and breakfast. One positive note - I was... More

Fabulous hotel with recently refurbished rooms. very clean and staff very friendly and helpful. Popular bar with locals and guests alike so it can be a bit loud at night though you will probably be amongst it as its a friendly cheerful crowd. Will definately be back. A special mention to Betty the owner who was a pleasure to deal... More
