There is nothing worse than coming down with a bout of food poisoning just as you are enjoying a break in a UK hotel. Thankfully very few of us will ever be faced with this situation, but it can occur if the hotel does not adhere to the food safety laws as closely as it should do. While most hotels are checked on a regular basis, meeting or exceeding these laws and requirements in the process, a few fail to meet the standards required. In these cases the hotels must make sure they make appropriate changes so they do not put anyone’s health at risk.
You can see then that actually being at a UK hotel and falling ill because you’ve eaten their food is a rare occasion indeed. However, as with anything else in life, it can still happen. You may know this first-hand if you have suffered from a bout of food poisoning in a hotel in the past three years.
Symptoms of food poisoning
Food poisoning can come on very quickly after eating the offending food, sometimes within a few hours. Sometimes it may take longer though, depending on the specific bacteria that causes the illness. Additionally you will find the symptoms can vary depending on the bacteria. You will usually expect nausea and vomiting, although diarrhoea may not always be present. You will always feel drained and ill though, and this can lead to you feeling ill for some time.
As you can see, if you experience this kind of thing in a UK hotel, it would not be your fault. As such you may have a strong case to make for claiming UK hotel food poisoning compensation.
