Thoroughly enjoyed party night here at this hotel. Meal was excellent as was the waiter service, only downside was obnoxious barman at the end of the evening whose manner in dealing with the public was atrocious. Put a little spoiler on the end of which in all was a fabulous evening

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. I have discussed your comments with our Bar Supervisor and it was never his intention to appear rude and for that he would like to apologise however we do have strict licensing laws to enforce.

My wife and I only stay in hotels, recommended on Trip Adviser and have never been let down. The Woodlands in Broughty Ferry, was no exception.

I stayed for a couple nights in this very pleasant hotel. It is in excellent attractive surroundings with plenty of parking space. The accommodation was very spacious and well lit. The lounge area was very comfortable and the health suite/swimming pool was very good and well maintained. Breakfast was good. The staff were all very friendly and attentive.

This was our first time in Broughty Ferry but it won't be our last. This was a weekend break which we both enjoyed. The hotel is a mixture of modern and more traditional.
