What were some of the top stories in hospitality this week? Here's our pick.
  • Customers are threatening to boycott the Byron burger chain​ after dozens of its workers were arrested in a raid by immigration officials. The Home Office said that Byron had carried out the correct 'right to work' checks, but staff had used fake papers to get jobs at the burger firm.
  • Many Michelin-starred restaurants and top hotels are still failing to provide proper disabled toilets,​ a disability commentator has claimed. Fiona Jarvis, a wheelchair user, told BigHospitality she had experienced restaurants using disabled toilets as storage and was often unable to fit her wheelchair through supposedly 'accessible' doors.
  • Alton Towers is to open a CBeebies-themed hotel​ for parents and toddlers next year. Each of the 76 rooms will be designed around a CBeebies programme and the hotel will also host live shows and character 'meet and greets'.
