Reported in UK press that an outbreak of Legionnaire's Disease at this hotel (source still not located) has resulted in the deaths of 3 elderly male guests who were clients of Saga.Reported also that Saga have belatedly moved all their guests compulsorily to other hotels whereas it was previously an option to move.

When I first heard this story in the middle of last week it said that melon was to blame. Don't know how they can say that so quickly and it hasn't been mentioned since. Like you say, it could be many different causes.

David I think the contaminated ready-prepared melon is a separate issue.Reported that the hotel's hot water/shower feed is the source of the problem.
