Shocking! Scandalous! Stomach churning! – All headlines appearing at a hotel near you!!!


With the devastating impact of Covid 19 on the global hospitality industry, headlines like those above have been sadly missed in the past 12 months as more of the industry remains closed than open!

However, with some light at the end of the tunnel, however dim, I’m sure it won’t be too long before our beloved Daily Mail online  ( begins to trot out the tried and tested clickbait of scandalous hotel and restaurant operators.
