Guest labels Columbus Aparthotel the “worst hotel”

Your Holiday Claims are concerned to learn that recently returned guests have reported suffering from illness and poor hygiene standards at the three-star Columbus Aparthotel.

“Chicken was bright pink,” writes an August 2016 holidaymaker from Motherwell on TripAdvisor.

“We were swimming in constant fear of being in contaminated waters,” comments another recent guest adding that at one point all three pools were closed due to faecal incidents.

In a particularly alarming report, a Markethill holidaymaker claims to have contracted scabies from improperly washed bedding at the resort:

“Like headlice it doesnt matter how clean you are, scabies are spread through bedsheets and towels that are not washed correctly then they burrow into your skin and without doctors treatment do not go away

“During our stay we thought our room was cleaned well and clean towels i dont believe they are washed at all maybe just dipped in cold soapy water and hung up to freshen…hotel must be riddled with them.”

Your Holiday Claims have secured hundreds of thousands of pounds for holidaymakers struck by sickness in Spain. In one of our most recent successes, a husband and wife from West Yorkshire received £4,250 in damages after gastric illness ruined their Spanish holiday.

Anne Thomson, head of travel law at Your Holiday Claims commented: “The reports concerning the Columbus Aparthotel are incredibly worrying.

“Any small slip in hygiene standards can lead to serious illness and I hope that the hotel conducts a full and thorough investigation into the issues raised.

“I encourage anyone who has fallen ill at this resort within the last three years to contact either myself or the dedicated team at Your Holiday Claims for advice on the merits of making a no win no fee 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.
