“Do not visit this hotel!” Warning from holidaymakers at The Grand Hotel

sick sid

The TripAdvisor website contains many uncomplimentary reports about the poor hygiene and food safety standards at The Grand Hotel in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

The Grand Hotel is promoted by tour operator, Red Sea Holidays and featured for its “excellent choice of restaurants with many á la carte options and several bars”.

One disgruntled guest said “the quality of the food, presentation and service in the restaurants ranged from very poor to shockingly appalling”. The guest claimed to have witnessed “loud arguments and fights breaking out between staff and a chef spitting into a bucket as he cooked”.

“One member of my party found a stone in her food on one occasion” it is reported.

Red Sea Holidays faced criticism, “despite numerous complaints to Red Sea Holidays, our concerns have been glossed over and they seem to consider this catalogue of disasters acceptable”.

Another guest said “anyone thinking of using Red Sea Holidays or holidaying at The Grand Hotel, I would advise not, unless you want a drastic weight loss”. “My partner and I had food poisoning after consuming raw chicken in one of their restaurants. We were very poorly for the remainder of our holiday”.

Experienced solicitor at Your Holiday Claims, Tracy Stansfield said “serving raw chicken is dangerous and simply not unacceptable. It is always distressing to hear of holidays being needlessly ruined and of holiday makers suffering sickness throughout their holiday”.

“I would urge holiday makers suffering sickness at The Grand Hotel to seek medical advice and to contact the team and see if they are entitled to compensation”.

Following my family becoming ill on holiday and my 2 year old daughter becoming particularly unwell, I contacted Anne at Your Holiday Claims from an internet search to see what I could do in regards to bringing this to my holiday company’s attention.

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.
