“BUSINESS TRIP - EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

In Dundee fro business with 2 colleagues. We stayed for 2 nights due to meetings in the area. We were very well looked after by the staff that once again made our visit great. The rooms were superb and food is out of this world. The hotel seems to specialize in Indian food and let me tell you…………… this is the best I have ever eaten. The second night we had a bar supper (with a few beers) and this was also top drawer. The owners are extremely welcoming witch makes a change as most of the hotels we stay in for business treat us as room numbers. The gym and pool looked great but we did not use them. We stay here every time we have business in Dundee and it has never let us down yet. A BIG thank you

Room Tip: All rooms are great but if i was with my wife i would request room 8. It is stunning for couples.

Dear Lower 232,
We are always delighted when we receive a review such as yours, it is so kind and thoughtful of you to take the time to write about our hotel. We have passed your comments on to our staff, needless to say they are all " dead chuffed " especially our five chefs !! We are grateful you use our hotel on a regular basis, hopefully we will see you soon.
Kind regards,
Jeff

A warm welcome, very efficient staff that make you feel like a special guest. The rooms are small but well equipped with small touches like bath robes, slippers and even candles.
The restaurant has an extensive European & Indian menus. Excellent food, excellent chef.
The only very minor comment, we had room 15 which is above the kitchen, no odours of cooking but quite a warm room and don't expect a solarium in the 'health centre', it is in fact a store cupboard.

Room Tip: If you like a warm room ask for 15.

Dear Paul D,
Many thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Room 15, as you quite rightly say, is above the kitchen, it does warm up a bit in the Summer months ( what Summer months you may ask ? ) however we do provide cooling fans if requested. You should be told this when checking in. All the kitchen equipment is switched off around 10:30 so it does cool down after this time. For health and safety reasons, we no longer operate our solarium. Once again, many thanks for choosing The Hotel Broughty Ferry, and we hope to see you soon.
Kind regards,
Jeff

Spotlessly clean - excellent location - friendly staff - superior rooms - breakfast "wow" - best value for money we've had for a long time - what more can I say?????
Unfortunately stayed only 1 night - should have booked 2 nights !!!!!
Great location for the RAF Leuchar's Air Show we attended on Saturday. Perfect for our Wedding Anniversary.
Will recommend to anyone travelling in your direction. Thank you again for making our stay so enjoyable.
Regards, Sandra, Barry, Jean & Hugh (my Mum & Dad!)
PS: Might want to think of replacing the mattress in No:9 - not so comfy!!! lol. xxx

Room Tip: Room 9 was quiet and a bigger size than most in other hotels.

We spent the last two nights of our holiday at this hotel and we loved it,the hotel and room were lovely and beautifully clean .We loved the pool and gym and again spotlessly clean.
The breakfast was varied and very good this was the only hotel we stayed at in Scotland that served porridge and it was lovely almost as good as my Mum's, my husband said the poached eggs were prefect .We ate in the bar on Saturday night and it was really good and a lovely last evening of our holiday the bar was busy when we arrived but the barman took our order and delivered our meal in no time at all,the service in the bar was excellent .
This was our favourite hotel of our ten day trip and we were made to feel very welcome by every member of staff we met and without a doubt if we were to return to Broughty Ferry or Dundee we would stay at this hotel without a doubt.

Booked this hotel on line after reading reviews and it was a wonderful place to stay in Dundee, Scotland. Took bus afer walking up short street from train station and Broughty Ferry Hotel right on corner of bus stop. Lovely reception with proprietor greeting and helping me get sorted out to see the sights of St Andrews and Broughty Ferry. He even took me to the bus station and gave me a history lesson on the area of Dundee and the three J's.
Indian food delicious, Scottish food delicious, comfortable room -could not ask for anything more as a woman traveling alone-VEry friendly staff, just a great place to stay.
