THE Seamill Hydro has sent a heartfelt message to customers after it closed its doors.

Bosses paid tribute to staff for their work during the pandemic as they revealed the venue will remain shut until at least February 1.

A hotel spokesperson said: "We deeply regret that Seamill Hydro has had to close completely.

"We won't open any sooner than the start of February but will review all government guidance as soon as it becomes available.

"We would like to take this opportunity to commend our amazing team for the dedication they have shown throughout this most difficult time.

"We are immensely proud of each of them for the hard work and sacrifice they have shown to keep everyone safe and ensure our guests have been able to enjoy their visits. Thank you.

"We would also like to thank our guests, members and visitors for their loyalty, patience and kindness. That support has given us the energy to carry on and we will be back and more determined than ever to deliver exceptional experiences to all our guest."

All customers with bookings for the dates until the end of the month will be contacted by the hotel.
