A Quick Overnight StopPosted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: The hotel is exactly as depicted in the web photographs. Staff are courteous, friendly and eager to please. Favourite pub with local people
Cons: Not too much really. The small restaurant could be busy if everyone turned up at the same time and could benefit from reservation times of some sort.
Location: Broughty Ferry has weathered the financial downturn and has many good quality shops and bars. Good stopover to visit Dundee and surrounding area.
We stayed at the Fishermans' on a one-night visit to family in the area. The hotel comprises of three quaint cottages combined into one establishment. Downstairs this configuration of rooms has allowed the development of a labyrinth of quirky little rooms for bar, snug, lounge and restaurant. Upstairs the bedrooms have a more modern refurbishment. We had an evening meal and breakfast in the hotel which was quite good. Can't comment on the parking as we arrived by train.

St. Andrews Golf tripPosted May 24, 2014
Nice location for golfers. Parking is a beast, as this in the heart of the small town. The staff is great and they went out of their way to be nice to us. The restaurants in the area are good and the ice cream parlor two blocks away was excellent. (When you see people line up out the door to ice cream you know it will be good) The breakfast is cook to order. There is a laundry two blocks away and very reasonably priced.

Nice little placePosted May 18, 2014
You feel like you check in at home, the staff is welcoming and very nice and accomodating. Small rooms, very small washrooms but all very clean. The main problem is that it is noisy. You hear the road and the walls are like paper so it is not for the light sleepers. Parking on the street is easy and Broughty Ferry is a lovely town and the walks by the water are beautiful.

Great locationPosted Mar 29, 2014
Pros: The location for us was great.
Cons: The door into the bar which didn't close properly.
Location: We love the coastline walks to Dundee or back towards Monifieth.
We have never stayed in a Tavern style hotel before and found it very informal and easy to blend into. The staff were so helpful from the time we arrived to our departure, the breakfast a four star treat.

You'll be surprisedPosted Mar 4, 2014
Cons: TV signal could do with a bit of a boost
From the outside on a dreich (dull and cloudy and a little damp if not Scots) day the place belies its interior. From my arrival to my departure the staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly. I was given clear explanations about food etc. My room surpassed my expectations perhaps because the hotel was quiet and I was given a bigger room for the 3 nights. The room was spacious, with large, firm comfy bed. It was clean and my greatest joy was decent lighting with which to read, see the mirror, do some work using the free wifi. Breakfast was sumptuous and excellent all freshly cooked to order. Be aware parking early evening although there you might have to walk a couple of streets. The location is however quiet and close the the edge of the Tay with many wild birds.

Charming combination. Room, food and pub.Posted Dec 15, 2013
A unique chance to experience something that is representing more than just a Hotel. This i a combination of accommodation, food/drink and people you only find in a fishing village in Scotland. It is not Hilton style, but medicine.

Stayed their on businessPosted Nov 20, 2013
Pros: Old worlde bar and eating area with updated bedrooms.
Cons: Bedroom carpet was clean and probably new but it could have done with a thicker pile to highlight the bedroom quality.
Location: Was on business so didn't see much other than the Ship Inn ( quaint ) and the Coaching Inn.
Excellent views of Tay Bridge / river and Dundee. Cosy eating area with real fire and good selection of real ales in bar. Bedroom was nicely furnished . Not sure the carpet brought out the qualities of the room.

Some way from DundeePosted Nov 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
I had two nights here for a business trip. I couldn't find a hotel in Dundee central so booked here at Broughty Ferry. The hotel is above a pub but is clean, quiet and cheap. You need to add a tenner each way in taxi fares if you are working in Dundee. Room was comfortable but a little draughty when the wind whipped up from the Tay. Didn't have time for breakfast so cannot comment there. Staff were friendly.
