“Good Value and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

This hotel is a busy establishment in the middle of Broughty Ferry near Dundee. We chose it as it advertised ground floor rooms. We were allocated one of these which was freshly decorated with a large double bed and good bathroom.
The food was excellent, breakfast especially, when helpful staff produced whatever was asked for, in whatever amount was asked for.
We retired early on the first night and found it very noisy, but as soon as the bar closed, which was not too late, the noise stopped and we had a good night's sleep, so don't worry if there is some noise when you first go to bed!
I travel to Broughty Ferry 2-3 times a year and will definitely use this hotel again. 2 nights for 2 people including DBB a few drinks was £208

Room Tip: There are 2 ground floor rooms, and the others are upstairs. I don't think any have particularly...

We booked here for an overnight stay having read good reviews on trip advisor. The room was freshly decorated and quiet considering the tavern is pretty busy. The choice of food for dinner was pretty reasonable as were the prices. The quality was great as was the taste. Breakfast in the morning did not disappoint either. The staff in the busy bar were friendly and very attentive. I would have no hesitation in recommending this little gem of a hotel, based on our experience.

Room Tip: Book early. There are only a few rooms and it appears to be well frequented

We had visited the restaurant for meals before and, needing to stay in the area next visit, booked a couple of nights stay.
The staff were really attentive and helpful even though they were also hosting the annual Ron Bonar beer festival to raise funds for the RNLI. This meant additional work for them.
The room was great and, for those like me needing to use a CPAP machine, has a socket by the bed.
Tea and coffee are provided.
The double bed in our room was huge and very comfortable.
I would stay here again without question.

An unassuming building holds a gem of a pub, restaurant and hotel in a terraced street just up from the Lifeboat Station. We were immediately impressed when we stepped inside this warren of a complex. We arrived on Thursday evening - Folk Night - where singers and musicians just turn up to play and sing all night in a wonderfully atmospheric pub.
The restaurant served wonderful fish (Arbroath is just 13 miles away) in a small but well run restaurant. We were surprised to find 12 bedrooms at the Fisherman's and delighted to find them all extremely comfortable and well appointed. The only down side to this wonderful find is that there is no car park and the on-street parking is difficult to get a space near at hand. Nevertheless we will be back and will try to include another Thursday night Folk Night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear of the hotel

Warm welcome, good food and company at Fisherman's Tavern in Broughty Ferry near Dundee. Right on waterfront and close to beach. We had a twin room on the top floor and although not a huge room it met our needs for the night. Would definately recommend this to all looking for comfort and good home cooking.

The hotel is situated in a small village near a lovely beach. The room was modern and comfortable but in a lovely traditional pub. Breakfast was excellent and meals in the pub were good value.
Broughty Ferry castle was nearby, free to enter and well worth a look around. We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights spent here.
