Hotel in BBC TV sting is given clean bill of health
The Cavalieri Hotel received a clean bill of health from the Tourism Authority the day after a BBC crew filmed scenes purportedly showing low hygiene standards.
The authority’s approval last September followed an investigation into the St Julian’s establishment by the BBC's Holiday Hit Squad. Aired on BBC One last Thursday, the show lambasted the hotel’s hygiene and safety standards in a series of investigative clips.
Among its alleged instances of poor standards were bacteria-filled filtration systems and a potentially toxic level of pool chlorine.
But a Malta Tourism Authority spokesman said inspections carried out the day after the crew left had found everything was in order.
