Great hotel with fantastic bar and large beer garden. Very nice room and bigger ones available. Central to most things in and around Broughty Ferry. Beach short walk. Very busy so parking on street is at a premium. Breakfast reasonable priced and made fresh on request. Will definitely be back.

Great hotel with very friendly staff from the owner to the waitress bar staff absolutely everyone.We stayed in a room across the road from the hotel which was very comfortable great size with everything you would need . It was room 49. The hotel and rooms are maintained to a very high standard.Ate in the beer garden and had a really nice meal. Breakfast was ok not much choice but sufficient. Would have preferred a continental option to have been available. One problem we had was parking . The hotel no longer has parking spaces due to the expansion of the beer garden . Outside the hotel you are only allowed to park for 45 mins . This was a problem as Broughty Ferry is a nightmare to park and you can end up a distance away from the hotel . Would certainly return though as enjoyed our stay . The owner John is very hands on and very sociable . Blair and hid twin brother Cameron and very friendly and efficient. Though with there face masks on very difficult to tell them apart . Would highly recommend and certainly would book The Fort if we were back in Broughty Ferry .

In every way, from the table heaters, the great friendly, welcoming staff, even in the pouring rain--the canopies overhead can be moved to well accommodate the Scottish weather, this is quite a place. Think I have a new local actually

We were in for a meal last night. Food and service was really good. Was served by Steve who couldn’t be faulted. He is a really amazing server! You can tell he has a lot of experience and he has a wonderful manor! I have been served by him twice now when I have been in the beer garden for food and he’s been equally awesome both occasions! I can’t comment on inside the hotel as I was just in the beer garden but it is very COVID safe.
