“At least 40” hit by sickness bug at Marathon Hotel in Rhodes

sick sid

Reports are emerging of an outbreak of sickness at the three star Marathon Hotel in Rhodes, Greece.

The Greek hotel, promoted by Olympic Holidays, has been subject to several reports of a sickness bug in recent weeks and many guests have taken to TripAdvisor to air their complaints.

A recent British holidaymaker posted: “We were greeted off the bus on arrival with a disgusting smell of raw sewage, which hung around a fair bit during our stay.

“3 out of 7 days we spent in bed poorly with sickness and diarrhoea. We were not informed by the hotel when we arrived that there was a bug/problem.

“We were told by other visitors on our last day that the hotel staff were handing out medication to those who were well enough to venture to reception.”

Another guest complained of “absolutely horrible” food served in the hotel restaurant and warned potential visitors “you see it often…breakfast reappears at lunch and dinner…tired old salads and meatloaf made out of leftovers.”

It is thought that “at least 40” holidaymakers have been struck with illness whilst at the resort, ruining countless family holidays.

Tracy Stansfield, an experienced travel law solicitor at Your Holiday Claims, said of the reports: “I am very concerned to hear of such widespread outbreaks of illness taking place at Marathon Hotel in Rhodes.

“I would encourage those affected to contact the team here at Your Holiday Claims for expert legal advice on whether they could make a claim.

Having never thought to have contacted a solicitor to pursue a claim for compensation before, I am glad that I instructed Your Holiday Claims to deal with my claim following a holiday illness I suffered during my stay in Egypt.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
