We stayed for three nights while visiting relatives in Arbroath. Loris is a generous host, able to give helpful information about the local area. The breakfasts were excellent, she focuses on local products. The room was very comfortable. A great location, just a few minutes walk from the High Street. Recommended for anyone looking for BnB accommodation in Arbroath.

This is a delightful B&B with an excellent breakfast menu. Lots of home made preserves and cake/breads. Loris is a wonderful host, made me an afternoon tea when I arrived and very kindly collected a picture that I'd bought in a gallery (I came by train, so didn't have my car with me). Nothing was too much trouble and we...

We had a very friendly welcome, and the house was extremely well decorated. Breakfast was amazing, with homemade jam, and so filling we didn't need to have lunch! We were offered plenty of advice on where to eat and what to see so really enjoyed our stay.
