By law, if you book a package holiday, your tour operator is primarily responsible for anything that goes wrong, even if the hotel is fault. Therefore, if you have been ill due to poor hotel standards, a claim can usually be brought against your tour operator in the UK.
Holiday illnesses can often be caused by dirty hotel conditions and poor food handling practices.
