On arrival, I was given a lovely welcome by Helen, the owner. She showed me to my room which was very comfortable and immaculately clean. The breakfast was first class and served promptly. I have stayed in many hotels and B&B's in Arbroath when visiting family and this one

I have been to Arbroath for work a few times and have been glad to leave. This was the only B&B available in the area for the dates we needed so I was not expecting a lot from the place. How wrong I was. We had a double and a single room. Both were very clean and tidy, toilet

Thankyou for your prelimenary good comments. I have 70 positive reviews and absolutely no comments on "family noise." Why? Because unlike other family run b&bs there is no family live here. The only noise to be heard would be myself either preparing for breakfast or the sound of my ironing press going up and down as is my nightly agenda. All this "NOISE " would cease at 10pm when i fall into my bed after a hard days work. I cannot enforce a watershed before 9.30pm even on myself.The reviewer was not present in the morning when i had to make apologies for the "family noise" coming from elsewhere in the house in the early hours. As for the smell of smoke the reviewer forgot to mention that the smoking shelter is at the front door and unfortunately if the door is open then it will permiate into the house. Believe me i dont like it any more than the reviewer but the smokers may not be aware of this. Again no comments posted about this so lets hope that you havnt given the impression that my beautifull house reeks .
