The weeks running up to opening a new hotel are thrilling.
Eventually, you swap hi-vis vests, scaffolding and hard hats for guests, luggage and smiling faces.
There’s no better feeling than opening the doors and welcoming your first guests.
Sleeperz Hotel Dundee – our fourth UK hotel – opens soon and everyone, from the chief executive to brand new members of the Dundee team, is feeling excited.
Guess what? We are NOW taking bookings!
As of today, you can book to stay at Sleeperz Hotel Dundee from August 1st onwards.
You may not know this, but something big is happening in Dundee.
The city of “jute, jam and journalism,” is staging one of the most ambitious urban regeneration projects anywhere in the UK; a £1bn regeneration of the city’s former industrial waterfront.
Working hand in hand with Dundee City Council, Sleeperz agreed to open its fourth hotel on top of the city’s redeveloped rail station.
Sleeperz has reinvented the modern railway hotel and you’ll find our hotels within short walking distances of mainline rail stations in Newcastle, Cardiff and Edinburgh.
In Dundee, where once there was heavy industry and a thriving port for the import of Jute – a coarse vegetable fibre brought from the Indian Subcontinent – now there are 240 hectares/8km of waterfront transformed into five districts and home to businesses, museums, hotels, a concert venue and a modern commercial port.
Dundee is going places.
The new Sleeperz Hotel Dundee is situated in the Central Waterfront District.
Our new Dundee website, www.sleeperz.com/dundee, is now live along with our booking engine.

Dedicated to Design
Sleeperz Hotel Dundee is lucky to be located at the gateway to Dundee. If you’re arriving by train, ours will be the first hotel you’ll see.
You’ll find us directly opposite the new £80m V&A Museum of Design Dundee – which opens on September 15 this year.
This incredible building is the only Victoria & Albert Museum outside London and is dedicated to telling the story of design, technology and innovation.
Dundee is the UK’s only UNESCO City of Design and it was this passion for design which attracted Sleeperz to the city.
We build design-led hotels that are affordable and stylish to stay in.
We’ve won awards from RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) for the excellence of our buildings and we put the same energy into the interiors as we do our physical buildings.
For Sleeperz Hotel Dundee, we worked with Space Solutions, an interior design firm from Edinburgh, on our reception, restaurant and lounge bar areas and believe that together we’ve created a welcoming place to arrive and relax in that reflects the modern design of the hotel.
Here’s a sneak peak.
Book a stay at Sleeperz Hotel Dundee and you’ll fall asleep on a bespoke handmade Sleepeeze mattress and down-effect pillows, sit in pear drop chairs inspired by Denmark’s Arne Jacobsen and enjoy using our super-fast free WiFi or watching our new 40 inch smart TV’s.
Our beautiful en-suite bathrooms are exceptional too, featuring Villeroy and Boch ceramics, Grohe shower fittings with both a rain dance shower and a pivoting precision wand, a heated mirror & bright LED lighting.
We’ve gone the extra mile to make these rooms exceptional.
David Myers, chief executive of Sleeperz Hotels, says:
“When you consider that our rates start from £59 per room per night, this level of comfort and quality of environment is difficult to match in other budget conscious hotels.”
Sleeperz new Dundee rooms also feature:
- 40 inch wall mounted flat screen smart TV
- open wardrobes with in-built safe and drawers
- Full length mirrors
- mood lighting
