Malmaison Dundee delayed after flooding days before new opening

The opening of Malmaison's new Dundee hotel has been delayed indefinitely after it was flooded just days before it was set to welcome guests.

The 90-bedroom hotel had been expected to open its door on 1 December, but an electrical fault caused flooding which damaged 15 of the rooms, three days earlier.

Bookings which were cancelled and re-allocated to other local hotels, include a 170-person reservation for Dundee FC which had hoped to celebrate its 120th anniversary at the new hotel.

Gary Davis, chief executive of Malmaison, confirmed to Caterer and Hotelkeeper that all other guests were either re-booked into nearby hotels or given refunds , and said there is no definite new opening date for the property pending on-going work at the site.

The Malmasion Dundee will become the 13th property for the boutique hotel chain, which is already located in London, Oxford, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Belfast.

Malmaison and sister brandHotel Du Vin were acquired by KSL Capital Partners in March this year.
