Miss B stayed at the Radisson Blu Resort between the 31/03/2015 and 10/04/2015 with her Partner and 2 children.  Her daughter suffered from an ear infection and the family visited the hotel doctor.   The family received antibiotic cream and ear drops, but on return to the UK the infection was still present, already lasting 5 days forcing the family to visit their GP.  Her partner suffered from sickness and diarrhoea, and had to be put on a drip by the hotels doctor.

Miss B also saw the hotel doctor but refused to accept and any more  medication as she felt the doctor did not seem confident or professional.  The illnesses were severe enough to force the children to take time off school.

Miss B’s partner is self-employed and unfortunately had to take unpaid sick leave from work.






“Steer well clear!”

Review of the Radisson Blu Hotel

“The food was warm, nothing was piping hot. Their was a large amount of flies, dirty pots. The service was bad, the staff did not wear any hair nets or gloves etc. A large vat of scrambled egg was kept barely warm by three candles, it was more like a canteen than a restaurant.”

“We were shocked by the poor standard of the food and food hygiene. There were many people with sickness at the hotel during our stay. My elderly mother had such a serious bout of sickness that she had to be flown home.”
