The Scotsman hotel in Edinburgh has reportedly sent a letter to its staff warning them that they may not be paid on time because of a "challenging trading period".
Around 160 staff work at the hotel and all have been promised that they would be paid eventually, according to the http://www.scotsman.com/news/scotsman-hotel-warn-staff-they-may-not-be-paid-1-3710979" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">Edinburgh Evening News.
The 68-bedroom hotel is owned by JJW Hotels Resorts, which is part of the MBI International group owned by Saudi businessman Sheikh Mohamed Bin Issa Al Jaber.
The letter to employees reportedly thanked them for their loyalty and support, and said that the "challenging trading period throughout the group" would change within the "next three months", allowing the hotel to "return to our regular payment cycles".
At the time of writing no-one from the hotel or JJW was available to comment.
Opened in 2001 by the newly formed Scotsman Hotel Group in the building which was once occupied by the Scotsman newspaper group, the hotel was bought by JJW in 2006 for more than £60m. It went into administration in 2011, but was rescued by Sheikh Al Jabar soon after.
