Balmuirfield House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 23 Dundee B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2011

What a fabulous find! I just wish that I had a more extensive vocabulary because "brilliant and fabulous" are pale descriptions for our (my mom and me) recent visit to Balmuirfield House. Stuart and Morag are amazingly gracious and intuitive to each guests needs. The rooms are gorgeous - real testaments to Stuart and Morag's skills and abilities. The food was wonderful - and Stuart really went out of his way to treat us to local specialities. Our only suggestion would be to make this B&B portable so that we could tour Bonny Scotland and stay here every night! I think that Visit Scotland got their stars a bit mixed up - this is definitely a five star accomodation. There is no doubt that we will return - to Scotland and to lovely Balmuirfeild House.

Room Tip: The Peacock room is nice and quiet.

We stayed a Balmuirfield whilst attending a wedding in Dundee. The owners Morag and Stuart are the most welcoming people, and made our stay a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The house is set in beautiful grounds, with an abundance of wildlife. The rooms have lots of character, are very luxurious and are tastefully decorated to a unbelievably high standard.

We will, without question, be returning to Balmuirfied in the very near future.... If you stay here you will not be disappointed!

Balmuirfield House ist a B&B in a beautiful setting. The rooms are lovely and all curtians are made by Morag herself. They serve a healthy breakfast with freshly pressed fruit Juices and homemade bread (try Stuarts fabulous bread with camembert and onions). Thanks to Morag and Stuart for the nice chats in front of the living Room fire and the stories about "Wallace, the embarrissing dog".
Many greetings from Hamburg, Germany!

I arrived close to 9pm on Sunday evening and was warmly welcomed in by owners Stuart & Morag. The kettle was promptly on and the three of us sat in front of an open fire in their splendid guests' lounge and put the world to rights. Having bought the house just last year they have clearly put an enormous amount of effort into the decor, furnishings and facilities. I had a huge en-suite double room at the front of the house and slept like a log. Newly refitted bathroom with separate and good sized shower. Everything spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the morning could not have been bettered, and I say that as a regular guest at 4 and 5 star London hotels. It is absolutely clear that after decades in the hotel business Morag and Stuart really know what they are doing and to top it all you could not find friendlier hosts. Thanks to the earlier reviewers for steering me in their direction. Absolutely no need to look anywhere else in the future - I'll be back.

In the 30 years or so I've been staying in B&Bs this is one of the best I've ever been to. The setting is exquisite, the hosts charming and completely accommodating, the food excellent. The bed -- never slept better in my life! There's a resident peacock and a couple of lovely dogs, Minnie and Wallace, who add great colour to the surroundings. Balmuirfield is right next door to Trottick Mill Pond Nature Reserve, so there's great walking at the doorstep. The owners are hoping to bring back their own pond, fed by the historic Dighty Burn. This would be a tremendous enhancement, at a place that frankly doesn't need more. My advice would be to book in before there's a lineup.

BTW, I stayed there not one night but almost three weeks, and I would have gladly moved in permanently!

We recently stayed at the Balmuirfield House, the house is in a idyllic setting, which is peaceful and secluded - but only moments from the city centre. The house itself is spectacular and has an impressive, historic feeling.

The rooms have been decorated to an amazing standard; the furnishings are luxurious and tastefully selected. The owners advised that they have recently taken over and refurbished the house – and they have done a fantastic job of bringing Balmuirfield up to date without loosing its original ambiance.

The house is spacious and there is ample public space to relax, take in the sights of the gardens and have some ‘me’ time.

We immediately felt at home - the owners Mr & Mrs Clark did everything possible to make us feel welcome and nothing was a burden.

We will definitely be back very soon to visit this charming house and friendly owners.
