A spokeswoman said a Moxy double room is set to be priced at £69 a night including breakfast, although it is offering an opening promotional rate on just now of £59 including breakfast.
Hotel Captain, Donovan Sumner said: “Moxy is a concept that is different to anything else on the market. We are confident that it will create a new experience for guests looking for a cool, edgy brand at attractive rates.”
The venue will also feature local food and drink producers at its bar and eatery, including Fierce Beer, Brewdog, JG Ross & Dyce company Sandwich Larder.
