The local council in Dundee has given permission for a 150-year-old mansion to be turned into a boutique hotel.

Taypark Lodge has retained many of its original features inspired by Scottish Baronial architecture, including fine plasterwork, stained glass and a marble fireplace.

Now plans are in place for Taypark Ltd to turn the historical building into a nine-bedroom hotel, complete with a lounge, bar, dining room and function room.

Previous uses have included a nursing home and guest house in recent decades, and latterly it was used as offices for Dundee University.

A council planning officer said: "It is considered that the proposal will result in the retention and restoration of a B-listed, former jute mansion, which was once very characteristic of this part of Dundee. It will provide a small boutique hotel, which will add to the range and choice of visitor accommodation in the city, whilst ensuring the retention and restoration of the building as a single entity."
