Establishments that serve paying customers such as hotels have a legal duty of care towards their guests, staff and other people who may use the hotel such as delivery people.

These settlements are foten worth tens of thousands of pounds so are well worth pursuing.

If a bag is stolen during this time because of improper management by the reception staff, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your lost property. Similarly if goods are stolen when left in a hotel room by housekeeping staff, or a burglar who has broken into the hotel then you could be entitled to claim hotel injury compensation for your loss.
