British holidaymakers are reporting a large outbreak of illness at the Lindos Imperial in Greece.
Visitors have commented on the review website TripAdvisor after suffering symptoms including sickness and diarrhoea during their stay at the hotel. Many stated that they required medical attention from local doctors at the resort.
One hotel guest commented: “The worst of it all was the bacterial bug that left hundreds of guests with violent sickness and diarrhoea.
“Guests were vomiting outside the restaurant, up the stairs, in all public areas. The incident at the hotel made the local news yet the hotel would take no responsibility.
“One of the guests I heard shouting in reception was a doctor. Her child was ill and she saw all the symptoms of a bacterial bug associated with food or water. The hotel said it was not their food or water.
“Monday evening my husband became ill, my youngest 2am on Tuesday, my eldest at 7am, and myself at 9pm. Thankfully we flew home Wednesday. We are still ill now.”
Another holidaymaker claimed that “at least 400 people have gone down with the bug”. Adding that they “had to pay a doctor 180 euros for medicine” after falling ill at the Lindos Imperial.
Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, commented: “The reports we have read from holidaymakers at the Lindos Imperial are very worrying.
“Consuming contaminated food or drink can lead to suffering serious illness and quickly ruin a hard earned holiday.
“I hope that the tour operators and hotel management at the Lindos Imperial will investigate the current hygiene standards at the hotel to protect the health of all holidaymakers.
“I would urge anyone who has fallen ill on holiday at the Lindos Imperial to contact Your Holiday Claims for advice.”
