UK: CAF Properties is looking for an operator for a 52-room boutique hotel at Woolmanhill in Aberdeen.

Four A-listed buildings at the site will be converted in to a hotel along and around 40 homes under the plans submitted by CAF Properties - owned by developer, Charlie Ferrari.

The hospital closed in April, with work initially expected to begin in June.

Signs advertising a "landmark hotel development opportunity" have been placed around the site.

Aberdeen's hospitality sector has been hit hard by the oil and gas downturn but there are signs of recovery. In June, market specialist LJ Research found occupancy levels in the city grew to 64.8 per cent in April, from 62.6 per cent a year earlier.

Council leader Jenny Laing said the Woolmanhill plans were key to the City Centre Masterplan: "From the council point of view, I think this shows how the public sector has done a lot of the heavy work and now the private sector is stepping in with its own investment. This was always the aim of the masterplan - for both sectors to work together."
