The building was transformed from a 200-year-old jute mill into a 102-room modern hotel that sits right between the waterfront and the heart of the shopping district. Keeping in line with the Hotel Indigo design policy where no two properties are the same, the hotel is a representation of Dundee’s rich past and forward-thinking present depicted by three different styles of guest rooms.

There’s the Dundee Cake room (filled with subtle marmalade motifs and curtains made of jute, a nod to the hotel’s former glory), the Comic room (inspired by DC Thompson’s famous comic called ‘Black Dog’ about a sheepdog), and the Gaming Room (since Dundee is the birthplace of Grand Theft Auto and a thriving hub for the computer game industry).

The vaulted brick ceilings are all original from the building’s jute mill days. The blankets are designed by local textile designer Hilary Grant, who was inspired by the waves breaking on the River Tay just a short walk away.

The Daisy Trasker, the hotel’s restaurant and bar named after a beloved weaver who organized activities for the jute mill workers years before, serves up traditional Scottish dishes with a contemporary twist.
