    How safe are one-star hotels to stay in?


    Hotel star ratings are awarded based on a variety factors including facilities and services offered. While a lower star rating may suggest that services provided are not as luxurious as those of a high star hotel, the safety of visitors should not be affected, as health and safety rules and regulations apply to all establishments. In other words, one-star hotels should be as safe to stay in as the five-star hotel next door.

    Preventing accidents in hotels

    Owners and managers of hotels have a duty of care to prevent personal injuries to patrons and, of course, employees by ensuring slip, trip and fall hazards are identified and adequately dealt with. Food poisoning outbreaks must be prevented by adherence to strict hygiene, health and safety standards, too.

    Slips, trips and falls

    Hotel accidents involving slip injuries; injuries by tripping or food poisoning can happen anywhere, even in the finest, most luxurious hotel on the planet. Peak times of the year, busy lunch and dinner periods and other factors may all combine to result in a patch of wet flooring or a trip hazard of some kind not being detected and removed in time to prevent accidental injuries.

    Personal injury compensation

    If you were injured by accident in a hotel of any star rating through no fault of your own, chances are that you are eligible to make a public liability claim. Claims must be set into motion within three years of the incident resulting in the injury claimed for.
