    DoubleTree by Hilton is offering visitors to Dundee and Perthshire a glimpse of the majesty of Victorian Scotland with the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Dundee. In partnership with RedefineBDL, the former Landmark Hotel today completed its £1million refurbishment to become the upscale brand’s third Scottish property and its 21st across the UK.The hotel is set within the grounds of a converted private family residence whose original classical period design and intricate Latin inscriptions remain largely untouched. The listed building dates back to 1870, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the elegance of Victorian high society. Guests are free to explore the surrounding six acres of landscaped and maintained gardens complete with an ornate Italian style maze and fountain.

    Each of the 92 guestrooms have received a thorough upgrade reflecting DoubleTree by Hilton’s upscale offering. The hotel features a new fully equipped health club complete with indoor swimming pool and offers free internet throughout the property. Fine dining is available on site through the AA rosette winning Maze Restaurant featuring innovative British cuisine. Housed in an eye catching glass house offering resplendent views of the horticultural gardens the venue provides a charming setting for weddings and functions. Guests can also enjoy casual dishes and drinks from The Lounge Bar.

    A compelling range of meetings and events facilities are available including the purpose built Landmark Suite Conference Centre, with a capacity of 130. Whilst for functions requiring a more intimate setting The Greystanes Suite holds up to 30 guests in what was originally a private family chapel.

    DoubleTree by Hilton has two further Scottish properties, with hotels operating in Dunblane, featuring Nick Nairn’s The Kailyard restaurant, and the thriving city of Aberdeen. The brand will also welcome its first hotel in Edinburgh later this year, once again in partnership with RedefineBDL.
