    Following a multi-million pound refurbishment, Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa now welcomes in the luxurious surroundings within the city.

    The hotel’s £2.4 million refurbishment has led to the transformation of all 151 guestrooms and suites and leisure facilities within the hotel.

    The investment – which is part of a £15 million package of improvements across the Apex Hotels portfolio – follows another consecutive year of strong growth for 2016-17, with a six per cent rise in turnover – up to £65m from £61.3m the previous year.

    “We’re delighted to see the multi-million pound refurbishment of our Dundee property finally complete, helping to transform the property and ensure Apex guests receive our signature warmer welcome, says Angela Vickers, CEO of Apex Hotels.

    “With so much going on in the City of Dundee, our seven figure investment will only enhance our offering further for both guests and those using our spa and leisure facilities, and with further work earmarked for our conference and events space, both local businesses and those further afield will be well catered for, no matter the event.”

    The revitalised guestrooms designed by Emma Franks are now bathed in natural light and offer spectacular views over the River Tay or quayside. With a calm, Scandinavian feel fusing grey patterned carpets and strong contrasts between light and dark, the guestrooms create a cosy atmosphere for guests to unwind.

    The refurbishment, aiming to create a modern space within easy reach of all that is going on in the city, has also seen the leisure facilities upgraded, with the Ozone pool and large hot-tub area. The award-winning Yu Spa also offers more than 50 relaxing, detoxifying and rejuvenating Elemis treatments.

    With further investment planned for the conference and events facilities within the property, the hotel is ideal for both leisure and business guests alike.

    As part of the £15 million refurbishment programme, improvements are also underway at two further Edinburgh Apex hotels – Haymarket and Waterloo Place – as well as Apex Temple Court Hotel, in London.

    Elsewhere in the brand, multi-million pound refurbishment works at Edinburgh’s Apex Grassmarket Hotel and Apex City of London Hotel have also been completed.
