GUESTS at a city hotel were asked to stay in their rooms following a suspected outbreak of vomiting bug norovirus.
Around 100 guests and staff at Edinburgh Mariott hotel in Glasgow Road are believed to have contracted the illness last week.
Health officials were called in to deal with the virus after guests showed signs of vomiting and diarrhoea.
“We can confirm that last week some of our guests at Edinburgh Mariott were ill with norovirus,” said a spokeswoman for the hotel chain.
“As soon as we were aware of the situation, we immediately involved the National Health Service and implemented the appropriate protocols.”
