The hotel went into hibernation in April last year because of Covid-19’s effect on international tourism.
The central Dunedin hotel — one of two the corporate hotel chain owns in the city — was due to reopen at the start of November but, when contacted, Scenic Hotel Group confirmed it would reopen next week.
A spokesman said it would be a ‘‘very soft opening’’.
It was previously reported that the hotel would open with 25 staff, half the number before hibernation.
Scenic Hotel Group owns another two hotels on the West Coast which would remain closed until at least next year.
