Illness at Club Pomelan Hotel in 2001

Compensation recovered for ruined honeymoon at the Club Pomelan Hotel, Turkey in 2001

Irwin Mitchell represented a couple whose honeymoon at the Club Pomelan Hotel in Turkey in July 2001 was ruined when a breakdown in food hygiene procedures at the hotel caused them to become extremely sick with gastric illness. Not only did they fall ill, but the first room they were shown to had a broken lock on the door, broken wardrobes and patio doors – and bunk beds. They were eventually given a room with single beds, which they had to push together, because there were no double rooms available.

The groom was fortunate in recovering from his illness within 3 weeks. However, the bride was so ill that she had to take around 6 weeks off work. She developed permanent Irritable Bowel Syndrome as a result of the infection picked on holiday.
JMC Holidays Ltd admitted that they were liable and following settlement negotiations we succeeded in recovering over £14,400 in compensation for our clients.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
