Concerns over an infectious disease outbreak at a 119-bedroom Marriott property in Swansea have caused the hotel to cancel large bookings for the upcoming bank holiday weekend.
Public Health Wales has been made aware of a “potential infectious disease incident at the property”, and the hotel group is now working with the environmental health department of Swansea Council to investigate and to consider any public health action that is required.
Michael Downie, general manager, said: “We were made aware late last week of a small number of associates and guests becoming ill. As per our normal procedures, we notified large group bookings in order for them to find alternative accommodations, should they choose to do so.
“The Environmental Health Organisation were also notified at this time, however the cause of the illness remains unconfirmed. There have been no further reports of illness this week and the hotel therefore remains operational.”
