New Railway Station Hotel opens opposite £80m V&A Museum of Design Dundee – part of a £1bn regeneration of the city’s waterfront
Sleeperz Hotels, the innovative UK premium budget hotel company, has opened a 120-bed waterfront hotel in Dundee, Scotland.
The design-led lifestyle hotel is located on four floors above Dundee’s new £38m Railway Station.

Its curved frontage looks out over the River Tay and two major visitor attractions, the RRS Discovery – Captain Scott’s polar expeditionary vessel – and the V&A Museum of Design Dundee, opening September 15.

Dundee Railway Station and Sleeperz Hotel Dundee were opened yesterday, Monday July 9, by Joe FitzPatrick MSP, Minister for Public Health and Sport.

David Myers, chief executive of Sleeperz Hotels, said: “Dundee’s transformation and regeneration is making headlines across the world and now is the perfect time to open a new Sleeperz Hotel in the city.

The opening of the V&A Museum of Design in September will attract visitors from across the UK and internationally and they will benefit from our ultra-convenient location at the gateway to Dundee and Sleeperz’ distinctive brand of stylish city stays at affordable rates.’’

Sleeperz Hotel Dundee is the brand’s fourth UK hotel and was built in partnership with Dundee City Council.

Dundee has received global media attention and been named “Scotland’s Coolest City” and one of the ‘World’s 10 hottest destinations’ by The Wall Street Journal in 2018. Travel guide Lonely Planet also listed Dundee as one of Europe’s Top-10 places to visit this year.

The hotel has created 40 new hospitality jobs in the city’s visitor economy through direct employment and a partnership training scheme with Dundee City Council called Remploy Work First.

Sleeperz Hotels specialises in building stylish and affordable city centre lifestyle hotels, close to mainline rail stations. Sleeperz Hotel Cardiff was first to open in 2008, followed by Sleeperz Hotel Newcastle in 2012 and ‘sister-brand’ hotel Cityroomz Edinburgh in 2013.

All Sleeperz Hotels feature free and fast Wi-Fi, laptop safes, innovative space saving furniture, bespoke handmade Sleepeezee mattresses and tea and coffee making facilities as standard in every room. Guests can choose from a cooked or continental breakfast and an all-day menu is available in the hotel’s bar and lounge.

Open for The Open
Sleeperz Dundee opened ahead of the 147th Open Championship, which takes place at nearby Carnoustie Golf Links from July 15-22 and has helped the hotel sell-out for four days in only its second operational week. Manny Baber, general manager at Sleeperz Hotel Dundee, said: “Open for The Open is a great thing to be able to tell Dundee and Scotland and to sell-out four straight nights is an hotelier’s dream start. We have recruited a great team here, our hotel enjoys some of the finest views of Dundee Waterfront and the River Tay and we are looking forward to forging an outstanding reputation in the city.”

Sleeperz is working to a plan to expand and build further hotels in major UK cities, including Glasgow, London and Manchester.
