Malmaison Dundee to open next week following flood delay

Malmaison Dundee to open next week following flood delay

The new Malmaison Dundee hotel is set to open next week after being flooded at the end of last year.

The 91-room hotel will now officially open on 10 February after what had been an initial opening date of May last year. A revised date of 1 December followed, before the site was struck with flooding, caused by an electrical fault.

Fifteen rooms were affected and the opening was once again pushed back.

The hotel, on the site of the former Tay Hotel, has views across the Tay River, and cost a reported £15m to redevvelop. The property includes nine "club rooms", four suites and one "super suite". It will be the brand's 13th hotel, and fourth in Scotland.

All rooms have tea and coffee making machines and free Wi-Fi, while the public areas include a Mal Brasserie and Mal Bar.

Guests with advance bookings have been able to stay since 3 February, but the hotel is offering a special Valentine's Day package to capitalise on its mid-February official opening. It includes accommodation for two people, a four-course "Malentines" dinner, chocolate dipped strawberries and a welcome cocktail, from £218.

The site is part of the on-going £1b overhaul of Dundee's waterfront, which includes the opening of the V&A at Dundee museum.

Other new hotels expected in the area include budget railway hotel Sleeperz, which has just announced plans to open a 120-bedroom property above the city's new £22m railway station.

Malmaison, which also has hotels London, Oxford, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Belfast, was acquired along with sister brand Hotel Du Vin by KSL Capital Partners in March 2013.
