WE ARE CLOSED.
Since reopening our venue has taken every single precaution to make sure that our staff feel safe in their workplace; this has been widely remarked upon by all of our customers as to how safe they feel.
Today, we received anecdotal news that there is now a member of the public who has tested positive for covid-19, who visited ourselves on Saturday between 4 and 6pm. We have had no official contact regarding this – from either Aberdeen City Council or NHS Test and Protect – but are putting in place what we think should be done as a result of receiving this news. We remain confident in all of the things that we have in place that we have controlled it within the venue
Regardless of how many procedures we have in place or how many safety measures we implement, we feel that at this stage there is nothing further we can do to keep them safe and make them feel comfortable again.
The bottom line is that, due to the current corona virus cluster in Aberdeen and around bars in general, through no fault of our own, staff do not feel safe in their workplace. Guidance from both local and national governments here is lacking in our opinion and we feel that there is a need for decisive intervention – we are making the decision to control what we are able to.
We have taken the decision to close our venue at this point for 14 days, which we hope will give the cluster a chance to dissipate. All bookings during this time will be cancelled. This is a decision that is intended to keep our staff safe and reduce the risk of any further transmission. We feel like this is the right thing to do in the current circumstances and we hope to be back with you in the near future.
IT HAD BEEN OUR INTENTION TO REOPEN OUR HOTEL FROM THE 30TH OF JULY. IT IS WITH HUGE REGRET THAT WE HAVE TO INFORM YOU THAT WE WILL NO LONGER BE DOING SO. THIS IS DUE TO A MULTITUDE OF FACTORS SUCH AS LOW OCCUPANCY, MINIMAL URBAN STAYCATION UPTAKE, INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS AND A CHANGING LOCAL MARKETPLACE. OUR DECISION IS TAKEN TO PROTECT OUR HOTEL STAFF, WHO WILL REMAIN FURLOUGHED UNTIL SUCH TIME AS WE DEEM IT VIABLE TO REOPEN THE HOTEL PART OF OUR BUSINESS.
IF THIS DECISION IMPACTS YOUR BOOKING, WE HOPE YOU ARE ABLE TO FIND ALTERNATIVE ACCOMMODATION WITHIN THE GRANITE CITY AND PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU NEED ANY FURTHER ADVISE ON:
FOR NOW WE WILL CONTINUE TO FOCUS ON OUR BAR AND RESTAURANT. WE HOPE THAT IF YOU HAVE A BOOKING AND YOU ARE EFFECTED BY US CLOSING OUR HOTEL FOR THE TIME BEING THAT YOU CAN JOIN US FOR A DRINK IN THE BAR. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A BOOKING THERE PLEASE EMAIL:
