“Groovy post-industrial vibe in an old Dundee linen mill. Industrial-chic interiors feature bare brick walls, cast iron and polished plaster finishes. Spacious bedrooms are similarly stylish yet pared back. 10 mins walk to the new V&A and railway station and a five-minute cab ride from the airport.”

Hotel Review

In the Indigo's expansive lobby, quirky displays of vintage typewriters, weaving equipment and gaming paraphernalia echo aspects of Dundee's industrial heritage. There are homages too to Keiller's marmalade and NCR, both former mainstays of the city's economy. The building itself is a former 19th-century linen mill, once a flagship of one of the city's giant textile companies. Original ironwork and exposed brickwork and masonry have been retained in public areas for added grooviness. Rooms are bright, sizeable but not overlarge, and unfussily decorated in shades of charcoal, pale grey and taupe, with coloured pillow cases and padded headboards brightening the beds. Bold checked curtains in heavy linen from The Dundee Weaver are further reminders of the building's past. Perks include Arran toiletries in bathrooms, fluffy robes, slippers, tea kettle and Nespresso machine – and vintage copies of The Beano to keep you amused. Bathrooms have walk-in showers and full-size tubs. Cast-iron columns support the ceiling in the Daisy Tasker restaurant, where the menu is unpretentiously stylish, with local accents including Arbroath smokies and (at breakfast) Dundee marmalade. Vegetarians are adequately catered for, and prices are moderate.

Hotel Indigo, Dundee

Positive proof that chain hotels don’t have to be boring. This well-considered conversion of an industrial building is as up to date as any hipster could hope for.

Chain hotels are boring? Not this quirky, cut-price cracker, a £23m renovation of a once derelict jute mill.
