Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Perfect little hotel for visiting the east of Scotland. Beautiful bar for a nightcap, great breakfasts the next morning and a location in Broughty Ferry unsurpassed, just steps from the majestic River Tay. I visit every year and this is my hotel of choice,

Comfy cozy rooms, all facilities. Seperate access to rooms so didn't have to trapse through pub with cases. Lovely friendly warm atmosphere, and even though we arrived late, managed to squeeze us in for a lovely meal

Friendly place to stay and a great base for travelling around the area. The room was very clean as was the bathroom. Nice hot shower and a comfy bed ensured a good night's sleep. This appears to be a hotel that cares for its visitors and I would definitely recommend staying here, I will book again when in Dundee

Have just returned from a fantastic 2 night stay. From the moment we checked in until we checked out we were made to feel so welcome by every member of staff. We stayed in room 3, it was very clean, lovely decor, cosy and bed very comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant one of the nights it was lovely, very filling and all served with a smile. Breakfast was very good also, cooked breakfast very adequate and set you up for the day, loved the toast ! Staff are what makes this place, nothing was to much trouble. We will definitely be back very soon

We chose to stay here in our way to Aberdeen from Edinburgh. Road weary from flying in from the states, we arrived a bit late. The lads in the kitchen fired us up a tasty late meal despite having begun to shut down. We tried to give them a tip, but they wouldn’t hear it. It was so lovely to have a bit of warmth and kindness after a long day. The pub is busy and jammed with locals, which just adds to the atmosphere. The room is simple and clean. Well done, Fisherman’s Tavern. We sing your praises!

Stayed here for my birthday celebrations and it was exeptional fromm booking in to checking out. We had room 5 what a beautiful spacious room with a view of the sea. Staff whre all very friendly and always welcoming. We were not going to eat here for dinner as there were lots of other eating places to choose from but we were glad we did as they have a lovely special board as well as the menus on the table very tasty only thing is I would ask for a larger table when we come back as the two seater table in back restaurant as all tables were booked was cramped but did not spoil the food. Breakfast in the morning was very fresh and served by an excelletn waitress who was most accomodating but sorry I cant mind your name though to be honest would be a shame to name one member of staff when all were excellent. First time in Broughty Ferry but when we are definately back again will stay at this hotel again.

Our two night stay was as expected from the reviews we read in here. The room was small but the bed was comfortable and clean with a nice bathroom and shower. Only problem was there was only one chair. Staff in the hotel were very friendly and the food, while not brilliant, was OK. I had a steak and it was a bit tough. I should probably have returned it but didn't like to complain as the staff had been great. We also used the bar, which is clearly very popular with locals. Despite these minor criticisms I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Met a couple of friends for dinner during the week. We reserved a table as we know it’s a busy place. We were warmly greeted as we entered and the staff were lovely! As we headed to our table the fire in the dining area was on making it nice and cosy. The barman who served us was Nathan and he was so attentive making sure we always had drinks and checking our food was tasty! It most certainly was, I had fish and chips and the fish was delicious and massive! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a bite to eat or even a wee drink! Big thanks to Nathan who went that extra for us and made it a perfect visit!

We visited "The Fisherman's Tavern" on Sunday 19th February for 5 nights, The room was spotless cosy and good sized, we were in an accessible room and the bathroom was huge. The menu had a good choice and the food was delicious and the service was first class. The staff were friendly, well mannered and could not do enough for you. Definatley well worth a visit.
