£1bn waterfront scheme ‘needs more hotels’

Du needs a 500-room boost in hotel stock and more bars and restaurants to cope with the anticipated rise in visitors to the city sparked by its £1 billion waterfront regeneration. That is in spite of an unprecedented surge in hotel investment currently being made in the city, which includes the development of The Custom House, Dundee’s first five-star hotel, and a 91-bedroom Malmaison overlooking the Tay.

The call for a further five 100-bedroom hotels was made by Mike Galloway, director of city development at Dundee City Council, amid the expectation the planned V&A (Victoria and Albert) museum will attract a further 300,000 visitors to the city a year.

The £45 million attraction, which is expected to open in 2015, is the centrepiece of waterfront regeneration, in which £500m has so far been spent on infrastructure projects.
