“Quality, splendour and a bit of fun.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Stunning b&b, lovely rooms, owners and location. Not ideal if you need a city centre location, but it's brilliant for a bit of a more interesting stay outside of the city. A great retreat close to the city, motorway and links to the rest of Scotland.

Superb breakfast adds to the quality of this hotel. Well worth a visit.

Tucked away on the outskirts of Dundee, Balmuirfield House was the surprise find of our Scottish trip. We loved it. The house is beautiful, both inside and out. Stuart and Morag have a passion for what they do, and do it very well. From the moment we arrived, with home-made jam and cream sponge and the gift-wrapped dog biscuit, we felt completely spoilt. Stay here, you won't regret it. We've found our new favourite B&B (and there was some very tough competition from other places we stayed while touring around Scotland!).

We spent two nights in this lovely house and will hopefully be back if we're in the area. Our room with four poster bed and lush furnishings was so cosy and comfortable, we could have stayed in it all day long. Nice bathroom - absolutely spotless. Our bed was made daily as well as clean towels left which we hadn't expected. The cooked breakfast was delicious. Stuart our host was very easy going and welcoming. This really was a home from home, intimate and personal, and I'd definitely recommend this over staying in a hotel.

Wind, rain and childhood memories ignored, Dundee is a beautiful city and we loved our stay in Balmuirfield House.

Hospitable and friendly, Stuart and Morag were great hosts, who made our stay very comfortable.

Bedrooms were spacious, clean and tastefully decorated, with v-e-r-y clean, chocolate-coloured carpets that Dad's dog malted all over (Sorry!). Beds comfy, wi-fi, plen'ee of hot water, and quiet at night.

Breakfast very good, and even better than the food, was little Josephine's presence at the breakfast table; the highest point in a very enjoyable mid-week stay.

I cannot fault Balmuirfield House. If I come back to Dundee again, I would definitely Choose to put my head down here. Full marks for everything. Good luck making your choice! :-)

I recently had the privilege of staying overnight at Balmuirfield House with my son and his girlfriend and found it to be perfect in every way. Stuart and Morag welcomed us warmly (on a rather brisk and wet Scottish afternoon) with tea and biscuits, and already had a fire waiting for us in their gorgeous sitting room, while the lovely Josie immediately set to making sure we were comfortable. Our bedroom was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, comfortable, and had a lovely view of the surrounding countryside. Although March, and things only just beginning to sprout, I can imagine in the warmer months that the outside area is every bit as wonderful as the inside, with a peaceful brook running along the front and plenty of green areas for walking, reading, and contemplating the gorgeous Scottish landscape. Breakfast was a gourmet's experience in local Scottish fare, perfectly prepared and personally suited to each guest's preference. All the while, the inimitable Josie made sure to fill the dining room with her sparkle and joy. Should I find myself anywhere near Balmuirfield for future Scottish visits, there is no question of where I will stay. I have found my Scottish east coast home destination.

I stayed in February 2013 when in Dundee on business. The building itself and the bedrooms are all beautiful. The breakfast and the service was excellent and the log fire on arrival with tea and biscuits was about as welcoming as you could ask for! I will definitely stay here again, both for business and leisure!

It is very clean, quiet, beautiful, and luxurious place, we love it, Stuart is a great welcoming, and very friendly, the morning breakfast wonderful, with lovely Josephine running around.
If I am going to visit Dundee again it is defiantly the place where I want to stay, it has a unique location you feel that you are in woodland and you are very close to the town centre.
Thank you Stuart you have done very well.
