The price for a new cold room suite at a Melbourne hotel has risen to $20-30,000 after a spate of complaints about complaints about mould.
The new price comes after complaints about a mould problem in a Brisbane hotel, which is costing the hotel $4,500 to replace, said a spokesperson for the hotel.
“It’s the latest incident in a series of issues that have been coming to our attention over the last few months,” she said.
This was not the first time a hot tub in Brisbane was damaged or a cold hotel room in Melbourne was flooded.
Hotel owner Chris Coyle said a number of issues had been coming up, including water leaks, mould and debris.
Mr Coyle, who owns The Hotel Brisbane, said it was the first such issue to come to his attention.
He said the hotel was taking advice from the Department of Health and the Department’s Environmental Protection Agency about the best way to respond.
A spokeswoman for the Department said it could not comment on specific complaints.
It said the department’s environmental compliance unit had received the complaints and had been working to identify the cause.
