Bellacasa Suite Hotel, Gumbet

Irwin Mitchell is highly concerned for holidaymakers who have recently holidayed at or are due to stay at the Bellacasa Suites Hotel in Gumbet, Turkey as we have been approached to act for a number of holidaymakers who stayed at the hotel in August 2010. Six of the party of eight who approached us to act on their behalf all fell ill with symptoms of gastric illness whilst staying at the hotel.

Our clients have advised that, upon arrival at the hotel, they were informed by other guests to get a safe as many people in the hotel had had some of their belongings stolen. Additionally, they were also informed that the BBC had been at the hotel during the previous week as the hotel had been performing so badly. The manager of the hotel also suggested that the entire cleaning team had been replaced because of these problems.

The holidaymakers have reported a number of issues experienced whilst at the hotel, suggesting that the rooms were not clean, the rooms smelled, the taps did not work and there were bags of food and rubbish rotting outside the bedroom window.

It has also been suggested that the food provided by the hotel was of poor quality and was described as 'inedible'. A number of holidaymakers fell ill with symptoms of diarrhoea and sickness, having to seek medical attention whilst on holiday, and were given antibiotics, pain relief and rehydration sachets. It is possible that a break down in food hygiene and food handling procedures resulted in the illness contracted.

If you also travelled to this resort and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you if you have suffered from gastric illness after staying at this hotel.
