Sadly, all of the hotel's bookings were canceled -- including a 170-person reservation for local football club, Dundee F.C.'s 120th anniversary -- and as of right now the hotel's website is not accepting any reservations. Even worse, based on some irate posts to the Malmaison Hotels Facebook page, it seems they neglected to inform some of their would-be clients about the snag. Here's what one had to say:
So, my wife and I have arrived at your Dundee hotel, on its Grand Opening, and my wife's birthday to find it in a state of disrepair and no one has contacted either of us about the hotel not being open. We've now to find alternative accommodation at short notice and had taken time off work to celebrate the new hotel and birthday in one, but no, doesn't look like that's going to happen, does it... Thanks! Phoned 'customer service' and was asked to leave a message!?!? Concerned to say the least!!!!! Ruined weekend 1 - Malmaison 0
Management later confirmed that the hotel won't open until 2014.
