Seagull noise was a right nuisance. Breakfast was ok fresh cooked and nice... More

Good basic accommodation run by a very friendly lady called Irene. Guesthouse is on the High St so very much in the heart of Arbroath. Breakfast great and tailored to your liking. Beds comfortable and abundant hot water. All in all a good place to stay for the budget conscious traveller.

A well situated period guest house that is quiet, clean and inexpensive. I found the landlady to be personable and proficient, knowledgable about the local area and accommodating. The room was very comfortable and missing no amenities. The breakfast is hearty and varied. I will certainly return next time I stay in Arbroath.

Not the easiest place to find as access is from a pedestrian street, but our welcome was extremely friendly. Accommodation was in line with the cost. The breakfast was good, with the largest range of porridge options we have ever come across. The porridge itself was the best.

We stayed in this B&B for one night as we had a wedding near by. The lady who runs the place did not introduce herself so I don not know her name. I had phoned her previous to my stay asking her if we could check in slightly earlier (15 minutes) and she said that would be no bother. Low... More

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
