Suspected Salmonella and Sickness Bugs “Running Rife” at the Esra Hotel in Turkey

Simpson Millar’s holiday illness lawyers have been contacted by guests reporting severe illnesses at the Esra Hotel in Turkey. Of particular concern are reports of young children returning from the hotel with suspected salmonella.

Online reviews suggest that the hotel has been running a substandard operation with reviewers stating that a sickness bug was “running rife” and claiming that the hotel was the “most awful hotel ever”. One reviewer has gone so far as to say “I am not sure whether dousing the entire building in bleach or simply burning it to the ground would be better”.

Holiday Hotel Watch

Holidaymakers that Simpson Millar’s holiday and travel experts have spoken to have reported the resence of faecal matter in the swimming pool, oily substances floating on the swimming pool surface and the serving of pink and undercooked chicken in the hotel restaurant.

The symptoms described by holidaymakers are suggestive of a bacterial or parasitic infection such as salmonella, campylobacter, giardia or cryptosporidium. Illnesses of this kind can be extremely unpleasant and in some cases cause long lasting and severe conditions.

Anyone returning from this hotel is advised to seek medical attention without delay. Many sickness bugs can only be identified by providing a stool sample and it is important to identify the bug that is responsible for the symptoms if appropriate treatment is to be obtained.

Illnesses of this kind can often be prevented by the implementation and enforcement of simple hygiene and cleanliness measures.

If you have been affected by a holiday illness and would like legal advice then please contact us without delay for free advice and to see whether you can make or ‘no win no fee’ claim.
