Consumer demand for hot tubs over the past ten years has brought about a significant increase in the number of holiday lets which now include hot tubs. The running and use of a hot tub in guest accommodation can bring about some challenges and owners need to do their research and be fully aware of their responsibilities.
The Welsh Government has produced resources developed by the Heart of the South West Better Business for All Partnership with help from the Professional Association of Self-Caterers UK and funded by the Office for Products Safety & Standards. They have created five mini webinars and a toolkit to help accommodation providers to understand the steps required to ensure the hot tub environment is safe for guests and for owners, staff and contractors who maintain hot tubs.
