Sheraton Hotel

Irwin Mitchell has successfully pursued an action against the tour operator First Choice Holidays and Flights Limited for holidaymakers who travelled to the Sheraton Hotel in Gambia.

Irwin Mitchell acted for a couple who fell ill while staying at the Sheraton Hotel in Gambia. The couple had booked their holidays with First Choice Holidays and Flights Limited.

The holidaymakers became ill suffering with symptoms of gastric illness including diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal pain and nausea. 

Despite some positive reviews the holidaymakers reported how some food was served undercooked and how some food served was not hot enough.

The holidaymakers report that once they fell ill they did not feel up to doing very much which impacted upon their enjoyment of the holiday. The holidaymakers report how their memories of what should have been an enjoyable experience were spoilt due to the illness suffered.

Irwin Mitchell negotiated a global settlement of over £14,000 in damages for the holidaymakers.
If you also travelled to this hotel and suffered gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell would like to hear from you as you may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, and also the pain and suffering caused by the illness that you have suffered.
