Hotel Indigo Dundee

Modern hotel accommodation in a historic building

Hotel Indigo Dundee is located just on the edge of Dundee city centre, so close enough to the bars, restaurants, shops and tourist attractions but in a quieter, more peaceful location. It’s also a stand-out, easily identified landmark building, so look out for the old mill with Italianate bell tower, especially if you get lost!

V&A Dundee, RRS Discovery & Discovery Point, Verdant Works, Dundee Science Centre, McManus Art Gallery & Museum, Tay Bridge, Slessor Gardens and HMS Unicorn are some Dundee attractions all within walking distance of the hotel. Mills Observatory is also just under 2.5 miles away.

Getting there

Onsite car park with car and pedestrian entry from Constable Street. If you’re arriving in Dundee by Megabus or Citylink then it’s a mere 5-minute walk from Dundee Bus Station as opposed to the 20-minutes walking distance from Dundee train station.

Check-in

Checking in was quick and easy with no fuss. If you arrive early there are tables, seating and a ’Pantry’ with cold drinks, snacks, alcohol and ready meals. This is also the on-site shop for anyone staying at the adjacent Staybridge Suites.

In the room, you will find plenty of sockets, and beside the bed, a telephone, a mini fridge with water,  Irn-Bru and Tunnock’s caramel wafers; kettle, Nespresso machine; Mackie’s crisps; slippers; robe; a large TV, air-con and references to Dundee’s past. Also, look out for the knobs with doocot (Scots for dovecote) and drouth (thirst).

Toiletries are provided by Biology. Sadly not with the aroma of marmalade but we did have a reference to Dundee marmalade in our bathroom.

Verdict

Hotel Indigo Dundee was located perfectly for us as we travelled by bus. It’s near enough to attractions and nightlife but in a quieter city centre location.  Checking in and out was a breeze and all staff were lovely. This is a smartly designed hotel with everything we needed – a Nespresso machine, snacks, a fridge, robes and we always love a bath.  The only issue was that there were no separate toiletries beside the bath so we had to use those affixed to the shower wall.
We would also recommend booking a table for dinner at Daisy Tasker.
