Dundee’s first 5 star accommodation

5 star penthouse

Luxury in the heart of the city – that was Sarah Linton’s aim when she set up Westport Luxury  Apartment Hotel in the cultural quarter of Dundee city centre last summer.

Her foresight was rewarded last week by VisitScotland who have just awarded the Penthouse apartment 5 stars in their quality assurance scheme for accommodation providers – the first for Dundee.  The 24 one and two bedroom apartments received 4 stars.

Announcing the award at a photo call today, Sarah said: “I am delighted that VisitScotland have recognised that we have created something very special here.  I felt there was a gap in the market for somewhere really luxurious to stay in Dundee and our occupancy rates since opening have proved that.”

As one of only 30 members of the prestigious Connoisseurs Scotland (CS), the apartment hotel is part of an exclusive membership which includes Gleneagles, Stobo Castle and One Devonshire Gardens.

Chief Executive of CS, Jeremy Hawkings said:  The 24-hour concierge service offered to guests by Westport is absolutely on a par with that which our members have come to expect.  Dundee is a rising star as a place to visit in north east Scotland and we are delighted to have a venue there which we can promote to our members. Scotland (CS), the apartment hotel is part of an exclusive membership which includes Gleneagles, Stobo Castle and One Devonshire Gardens.
