We stayed for a week in Embded House whilst visiting our daughter at Dundee University. The location of the property is excellent for all of the local amenities in Broughty Ferry and only a ten minute car journey to the centre of Dundee. The house itself is well furnished and very clean with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. We would definitely book again.
Thank you for your great review. We try to maintain the highest level of cleanliness to ensure you have as comfortable a stay as possible. Therefore I'm so pleased you found this to be true and of a very high standard.

Our stay in Embden House was very enjoyable, there is nothing I would change. The house had everything you need and more.
The location was very good for walking to the shops, dinning out,the beach and bus stop if you wanted to go into town.
My family and I will be back to stay at Embden House again.
Thank you so much for the lovely review of Embden House. We appreciate your feedback as we want to make everyone's stay a memorable one.
We have tried to ensure the house has everything for a fabulous stay. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future!
