The Stromness Hotel on Orkney has taken the somewhat unusual step of banning the sale of alcohol to customers and guests. The move comes following the sale of the hotel to Paymán Investments who are investing in the hotel with a rebrand and a fresh look.
The rebrand sees the hotel adopting a wellness theme, hence the decision not to sell alcohol, although guests will be able to bring their own alcohol when attending private functions.
The hotel will introduce be introducing a health focussed range of experiences following the renovations. These will include hot tub soaks and yoga sessions as well as lymph drainage massage.
In another change, the hotel will also stay open throughout the winter season. CEO Na’ím Anís Paymán said, “…We are working hard to make life healthier and more sustainable for the community, the local economy and the environment around .”
Paymán Investments also owns the Douglas Arms Hotel in Castle Douglas.
