Hotel Indigo Dundee opens in UK's first UNESCO City of Design

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) opens its doors to Dundee in Scotland - described as one of Europe's "rising design destinations".

The 102-room Hotel Indigo Dundee has been transformed from a two-hundred-year-old jute mill, and sits between the waterfront and the heart of the city's shopping district.

The first spinning mill was built on the site in 1822 by the Baxter family who became one of the world’s largest linen manufacturers.

The building has been respectfully renovated, with the hotel’s three-room designs inspired by Dundee’s past and present and feature the original vaulted brickwork ceilings. 

Hotel Indigo Dundee general manager William Inglis said: "This is a unique and beautiful hotel and through clever design, we’ve really brought its heritage to the forefront. Dundee has recently been voted as one of the best cities to visit in 2018 and its rich culture is showcased throughout the city."

The venue has a 50 sqm room for small meetings and private dinners, seating between 22 and 30 people with a maximum capacity of 40.

Hotel Indigo Dundee’s restaurant and bar, called Daisy Tasker, offers guests a contemporary spin on traditional Scottish dishes with fresh seafood, prime cuts of meat and locally-grown fresh vegetables.
