What went wrong at Loutanis Hotel Rhodes?
Your Holiday Claims clients, the Westwell family, Daniel (30), Nikita (23) and Charlie (5) fell ill just days into their three-star stay, experiencing the debilitating symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea.
Forced to cancel planned excursions owing to the severity of the illness symptoms, the sickness stricken trio sought medical treatment from a local pharmacy where they were prescribed anti-sickness tablet and painkillers.
Father Daniel firmly believes that his family’s ordeal was the result of poor hotel conditions and he lists his complaints as follows:
- Food was uncovered
- Food was served occasionally undercooked or not at the correct temperature
- New buffet supplies were added to the existing selection
- Buffet food was left for prolonged periods at room temperature
- Cutlery and crockery appeared unclean and chipped
- Food selection was of a “poor” quality
How Your Holiday Claims helped
Danielle Burnie, Litigation Executive at Your Holiday Claims, was the Westwell family’s first choice for legal representation.
Acting on a no win no fee basis, Danielle successfully negotiated a total compensation pay out of £3,850 for the family of three.
Commenting on the case, Danielle said: “I am overjoyed that I was able to help the Westwells following their ruined family holiday at Loutanis Hotel.
“No holidaymaker should have to accept holiday illness as part of their package deal and I would always advise anyone who is unfortunate enough to fall ill on holiday to report their symptoms to their tour operator and seek medical attention.
“By following these steps, you both safeguard your health and provide documentary evidence of the illness you suffered should you wish to make a claim for compensation on your return to the UK.”
