Having looked online, and seen how nice the rooms were, we were really looking forward to our stay in the Fort 6th & 7th July. When i called the hotel to book our 2 night stay, i really should have known then, that it wasn't going to be all it was cracked up to be. The lady who took our booking, was very grumpy, and not pleasant at all, like we were disturbing her day by calling. When we arrived at the Fort, there was a sign on the door, saying to check in at the bar, so we had a bit of a wait, as the bar staff were busy with customers. We eventually got checked in, and were shown our room, which was horrible!It looked nothing like the lovely rooms which are shown on line. It was really a single room with a double bed in it. It had a threadbare carpet, which didn't look exactly that clean, in the bedroom, through into the bathroom. The bathroom was very old, with cracked woodwork, and flaking paint and paper. The shower doors didn't meet when you tried to close them, and there was a huge step to get in and out of the shower. The furniture in the bedroom was very old and dated. I made the mistake of bumping against the chest of drawers (which you couldn't help but do, due to the size of the room), and the whole thing just collapsed. The feet weren't attached to the chest, and there were blocks of wood in between the feet and the chest. There were no table lights at the side of the bed, and there was only a small mirror in the room, which was no where near a socket if you were drying your hair ect. This small mirror also fell down at every opportunity. When checking in to the hotel, you are asked what time you would like breakfast the next morning. We said 10am, and down we went at 10 for our breakfast. We sat there for 10mins or so, and not a sole appeared. We got fed up waiting, and left, to have breakfast in one of the great cafes in the Ferry. We stay in Broughty Ferry a lot, as it is lovely place, and all the people are friendly, with some great pubs, and lots of great places to eat. But i'm afraid, we will not be staying at the Fort again.
