A well known Wolverhampton Hotel has closed its bedroom services after The City of Wolverhampton Council served a prohibition notice following concerns related to the hotel’s water hygiene management system.
The notice prohibits the hotel from using its hot and cold water systems until a schedule of remedial works has been completed, following the discovery of legionella bacteria in samples. Pre-arranged events and functions will continue to take place at the hotel as normal as the hotel management has put in place contingency measures to ensure that any disruption is kept to a minimum.
The key learning from this incident is that it doesn’t take an outbreak or someone to fall ill for your business to be seriously affected, both with the loss in revenue causing cashflow issues and the on-going reputational damage.
