This Guest House is so tastefully decorated and excellently presented. The beds are most comfortable. The location is so central, the gardens are among the prettiest I've seen in my 7week travel. Loved the views from our very bright & spacious room. The Breakfast is so fresh, and the presentation demonstrated the care and efficiency of the owners/hosts. The Hosts Catherine & Karl are so hardworking,helpful, friendly and caring. The place is so very clean and bright- I love that!!. For me, our shower though very modern and clean & efficient was a tad squashy. I cannot speak highly enough of this place. The Avery, with those beautiful birds, provided us with the sweetest sound/songs to wake up to. If you want to steal away for a bit of peace sit surrounded by the colourful flower baskets in the little hide away beside the avery and watch the birds entertain you or just relax in the most comfortable, luxurious lounges and watch your favourite TV shows or read your favourite book. Fresh coffee is on tap 24x7. there are many rooms for you to choose from offering variety & luxury. They’re lovely only make sure you specify if you want double bed room or twin single. All the beds I checked out were very comfortable & warm. The week we were there was their busiest . I was so impressed with the efficiency in which the Catherine & Karl had the breakfast ready for every single guest without too much delay. They appeared a good team. Catherine works like a Trojan. It is only a 10-15min walk to the pubs, restaurants, fishing, shopping. And the bus stops just outside to take you to Dundee/station. Very peaceful surrounding not to mention colourful with those beautiful flower baskets and that cheeky Parrot that captured my heart, making his presence known, was so amusing. I just loved the beautiful Avery and birds so well looked after by the owners. I only have one regret – WE didn’t stay long enough. We loved this place and was surprised at how reasonably priced for what we got, we’d have stayed a few days longer to soak up the hospitality, relaxed in the peaceful, pretty gardens, birds and comfort not to mention the exciting menu offered by the hosts. Service, hospitality, cleanliness, comfort, affordable & convenient. Thanks Catherine & Karl.

The couple was simply marvellous. We stopped for one night. When we first got into our rooms, we were so pleased with the beddings and the lovely room. It made us felt as if we were back at home. The next morning, the host made us fresh chocolate muffins. We wanted to have a try, however, we were stuffed with her home-cooked breakfast. Will highly recommend this lovely place to everyone. You will not regret this place =)

Broughty Ferry is a pretty little seaside area, with nice shops. The Abertay is very well placed for the beach, for the shops and for buses into Dundee or further along the coast. I thought it was a lovely guest house, very relaxed and comfortable, but still with the feel of a family home. There are several rooms; mine was a twin ensuite room that faced the back of the house, was bright with neutral decor, and had great, comfortable beds and a good shower. The landlady, Kate, was charming and helpful. I really enjoyed my stay and will be back.
