We went on the Tinsel & Turkey weekend with a party of 90 people from Bristol. We were very disappointed with the room which needed updating and smelt of TCP...!!
Over the weekend approximately half of our party suffered from stomach cramps, with very bad sickness & diarrhea. It was only later on Saturday evening that hand sanitiser dispensers appeared in the toilets and at the restaurant entrance..!!
Talking to other guests, it then became obvious that the hotel was infected with a type of NOROVIRUS, although the staff had obviously been told to KEEP QUIET...!!! The heating in the Hotel in all areas was far too warm which only helped to fuel/spread the virus.
We have since discovered that the hotel had been infected with the NOROVIRUS since the beginning of December and should therefore have been CLOSED to all future guests.
Obviously profits were put first before customers health...??
On returning to Bristol I had a further two days off work to recover from the illness that spoilt our weekend away.
The party organiser has contacted the hotel and reported the incident to the local Environmental Health Department. Watch this space...!!
In the meantime anyone with a booking at this hotel or considering a visit should THINK AGAIN..!!
