THE Seamill Hotel in West Kilbride has delayed its reopening

A hotel spokesperson explained: "It is with regret that we must confirm that the hotel will remain closed until at least February 1.

"We will do all we can to ensure that we are ready to welcome people back as soon as possible.

"Anyone who has a booking scheduled for the period of our closure does not need to do anything.

"We will contact these customers soon to discuss the cancellation or amendment of their booking. If we cannot reach them, we will cancel the booking.

"We are asking people not to call the hotel.

"Anyone with questions can contact us by email at or send us a message on social media."

Hotel bosses have asked customers to show patience as they are working with a reduced team.
