Best Western Invercarse Hotel Dundee Set to Open 24 Bedroom Extension
Release date: 16 April 2018
Situated in the West End of Dundee with privileged views from public rooms across the River Tay, Best Western Invercarse Hotel is set to open a stylish 24-bedroom extension on April 24th. A popular venue for Weddings and Events as well as Corporate and Leisure accommodation, The Invercarse is one of Dundee’s most established hotels.
A £1.7 million investment has included refurbishment to the existing 44 bedrooms and transformation of the popular Redwood Restaurant as well as re-decorating the Ballroom and Reception areas.
The new extension will provide an extra 72 beds and bring the total sleeping capacity to 160. Within the build there is a greater flexibility of room type formation and includes a bridal suite, along with easy access and family rooms. Additional car parking space has been provided by reclaiming land at the back of the site.
The design has incorporated rooftop solar panels which will provide all the electricity required for the rooms. Additionally, six charging points for guest’s electric vehicles have been installed which shows Redwood Leisure commitment to its Green Tourism Business membership.
It was Dundee City Council who first called for an increase to the bed capacity in the city before the long-awaited opening of V&A in September ’18.
Redwood’s sister hotel, Best Western Woodlands Hotel had a 26-bedroom extension built in 2015 in preparation for the anticipated demand in the city. The hotel has an indoor pool, fully equipped gym and sauna/jacuzzi has benefited from Leisure and Golf tourism numbers increasing to the area and hopefully this trend will continue once V&A opens in September. Both properties were snapped up for The Open in July with R&A taking all of the rooms in Woodlands due to the leisure facilities and proximity to Carnoustie.’
