When key workers such as teachers, the armed forces and NHS, care home and supermarket staff book a minimum of one night stay at the hotel during 2021, they will receive a complimentary second night stay on Dalmahoy.

The leading hotel and golf resort will reopen on Thursday April 29 2021 as Scotland eases lockdown and allows the accommodation and hotel sector to reopen.

The hotel which is set in 1,000 acres of countryside seven miles from Edinburgh city centre, has been closed for the second time since coronavirus lockdown restrictions were introduced at the end of December and will reopen with thorough safety measures in place to allow guests a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Mr Thomson is upbeat about the future of Scotland’s hospitality sector.

He said: “I’m optimistic about the reawakening of Scotland’s hospitality sector this year and the part we can play in helping create much-needed joy in people’s lives.”
