I stayed in the Rosely in August 2013 and had no hesitation in booking it again when I ventured back to Arbroath recently. It has a wonderful old fashioned quirky charm which I really enjoy and which is so hard to find nowadays. There is very little which is hi-tech or in the least bit modern about this place, it's a little tatty round the edges but us clean and comfortable. The entrance hallway is grand with high ceilings and large ornate mirrors adorn the walls. My room was a good size with an old wooden double bed piled up with blankets and cozy quilts. Being quite tall I found the length of the bed was too short so had to sleep diagonally! (people were generally shorter in the era when those beds were made). The shower looked like it had been installed in the seventies but worked perfectly well. Tea and coffee (and a jug of fresh milk) was provided in the room along with some pretty little bone china cups. I didn't eat in the hotel but breakfast is provided and evening meals can be ordered in advance. I love this place, it's good value for money and the staff are cheery and helpful. Oh..and there is wi-fi in the rooms, it's a little erratic but worked well most of the time.
