THE OPEN ARMS HOTEL RE-OPENING
We are delighted to advise that we shall OPEN FOR DINNER ON FRIDAY 24 JULY AT 6.00 P.M. with due regard to possible change of date by the Scottish Government.
All guidelines issued are being followed scrupulously to ensure the health and well-being of both our guests and team members. Full details will be set out in a special Covid19 page in due course but, be assured, all areas will be disinfected with UV light as well as deep cleaned.
SPECIAL OFFER FOR ACCOMMODATION – 24 JULY – 24 AUGUST 2020 – DINNER, BED AND BREAKFAST – SEE DETAILS AT SIDE.
For those guests just wishing to dine, please telephone or e-mail to RESERVE A TABLE as we have limited tables due to social distancing. We ask all guests to arrive by the main door to the hotel, where you will be met by a member of staff and directed to your table or room.
We are happy to report that, so far, the team have remained well and are very much ready to return to work.
Having been shielded, Lyn is very aware of the feeling of FOGO (fear of going out), but we do trust you will be able to overcome this in time and we can look forward to welcoming you.
Chris and Lyn
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL VOUCHERS WHICH WILL EXPIRE DURING OUR CLOSE-DOWN WILL BE EXTENDED FOR A FURTHER SIX MONTHS.
Welcome to Open Arms Hotel
The hotel is directly opposite 13th century Dirleton Castle with an open outlook to the village green.
THE OPEN ARMS HOTEL – ESTABLISHED IN 1947 – WAS STARTED WITH THE PREMISE OF FRIENDLY SERVICE, GOOD FOOD AND DRINK AND COMFORT. TO-DAY, OVER 70 YEARS LATER, THE STILL PRIVATELY FAMILY OWNED HOTEL, ADHERES TO THOSE VALUES.
OUR CHEFS TAKE PRIDE IN THEIR DISHES AND THE BUSY RESTAURANT, WHERE LOCALS AND GUESTS CAN RELAX AND ENJOY BEAUTIFULLY PREPARED GOOD FOOD, IS A TESTAMENT TO THEIR SKILL. LOCALLY GROWN AND MADE FOOD AND DRINK ARE SERVED, WHERE POSSIBLE. (VIEW DINING.)
THE LOUNGES WITH THEIR COMFORTABLE CHAIRS AND SOFAS AND OPEN FIRES GIVE GUESTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY TEA OR COFFEE OR A PRE OR AFTER MEAL DRINK. THERE IS A SMALL LIBRARY FROM WHICH GUESTS MAY BORROW BOOKS AND SETTLE IN FOR A QUIET READ WITHOUT DISTURBANCE.
THE 12 BEDROOMS ARE ALL INDIVDUALLY DECORATED, BUT EACH OFFERS COMFORT AND WARMTH WITH THE MODERN CONVENIENCE OF COMPLIMENTARY WI-FI. MOST BEDROOMS LOOK OUT TO THE 13TH CENTURY CASTLE OF DIRLETON ACROSS THE GREEN FROM THE HOTEL, WHILST FOUR ROOMS LOOK OVER THE TRANQUILITY OF OUR GARDEN. WELL-BEHAVED DOGS ARE MOST WELCOME WITH A COVER OF THEIR OWN AND A WEE TREAT TO WELCOME THEM. THEY MAY USE ALL THE LOUNGES, BUT ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE RESTAURANT. (EXCEPT GUIDE DOGS).
THE MARQUEE ROOM (UP TO 50), THE LIBRARY (20) AND THE HEATHER ROOM (10-12) CAN BE BOOKED FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION, FAMILY GET-TOGETHER OR MEETING. ( VIEW FUNCTIONS.)
THE AREA AROUND THE HOTEL ABOUNDS WITH GOLF COURSES AND WE ARE HAPPY TO RESERVE GOLF FOR YOU. THE WALKS ALONG THE BEACHES AT GULLANE, YELLOWCRAIGS AND NORTH BERWICK SHOULD NOT BE MISSED. THE VILLAGES HAVE MANY INTERESTING SHOPS WHILST EDINBURGH IS A MERE 30 MINUTES BY TRAIN OR CAR. (VIEW LOCAL INTEREST.)
WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE OPPORTUNITY OF WELCOMING AND LOOKING AFTER YOU WHETHER IT BE FOR A MEAL, A SHORT OR LONG STAY OR AN EVENT. RELAX, ENJOY AND LEAVE REFRESHED TO FACE THE UPS AND DOWNS OF EVERYDAY LIFE.
