I have opened the paper this morning to find a spread on the Grand Hotel where a Briton died on Sunday from food poisioning with about 40 others taken ill too. This has horrified me as we are due to go there in mid July and are now very worried about staying there. The newspaper article has said something about the fish and the bbc site has mentioned salmonella! Has anyone stayed there last week and now home, or anyone been taken ill and now back at home. I really need to know what to do. I have contacted Citalia whom we have booked through and apparently they will be contacting customers soon to let them know where the situation stands. I did ask if there was a possibility of being put up in another 4 star hotel of similar status such as the Savoy just near the Grand but obviously they wouldn't commit themselves just yet until they had a report from the hotel themselves.
Would like to hear others' opinions on this situation please - it's worrying me like anything especially as I thought I had researched and chosen a fab hotel and the food has always been praised on the forum.
