A popular Aberdeen city centre hotel has announced plans to reopen at the end of July.
Siberia Bar and Hotel want to invite guests in from Thursday July 30.
The 16-room operation was fully renovated at the start of 2020 but has been shut due to the pandemic since March.
However, due to Nicola Sturgeon’s announcement telling hospitality businesses to gear up for re-opening from July 15, Siberia will follow suit.
Director Stuart McPhee described the last few months as the “toughest” in their existence so far.
He said: “It is our hope that post lockdown there will be an uptake in staycation ethos where we will be your one stop shop to eat, drink and stay right in the heart of Aberdeen.
“A city break that has a lot to offer from beaches, to castles, to Nuart, to a world class food and drink offering, an amazing art gallery and much more.
“We were thoroughly pleased to hear that the Scottish Government intends to reopen hospitality from the 15th of July providing it is safe to do so.
“But we have taken the time to assess this and we have made the operational decision to reopen the hotel side of the business from the weekend of the 30th of July for all those wishing to book.”
The hotel will take the next month to create the safest possible environment for staff and guests to make the premises Covid-19 secure.
Stuart also asked customers to book directly with the hotel, to allow them to recover by cutting costs on commission and making the trip more personal.
