15 Main Provisions of The Hotel Proprietors' Act 1956
Definition of an hotel
The Act defines an hotel as "an establishment held out by the proprietor as offering food, drink and, if so required, sleeping accommodation, without special contract, to any traveller presenting himself who appears able and willing to pay reasonable sum for the services and facilities provided and who is in a fit state to be received."
Hotelier's responsibility for guest's property
The proprietor of any hotel has a duty to take reasonable care of the property ofhis guests brought to the hotel, whether resident or not. If it is lost or damaged through the negligence of the hotel, the proprietor may be liable. In addition to this duty, which an innkeeper has in common with others who are not innkeepers (private hoteliers), an innkeeper has, in certain circumstances, strict liability for the property of his resident guests.The proprietor can avoid his liability only if he can prove that the loss or damage was caused by the guest's own negligence, or by an Act of God, or by an Act of theQueen's enemies.
Innkeeper's strict liability
This liability, which applies only to innkeepers, whether they have been negligent or not, extends to the loss or damage of guests' property only if at the time ofthe loss or damage sleeping accommodation had been reserved for the traveller;and the loss or damage occurred between the midnight immediately preceding andthe midnight immediately following his stay at the hotel. The strict liability does not apply to vehicles or property left in them, horses or other live animals or their harness or other equipment, although the innkeeper still has a duty of reasonable care for them. As strict liability no longerapplies to these items, the innkeeper no longer has a right to detain them assecurity for unpaid bills.
Limitation of strict liability
The innkeeper's strict liability is limited to £50 for any one article and to £100 in respect of any guest, if he exhibits a copy of the statutory notice, given in the Act, and in the way prescribed by the Act. If a copy of the statutory notice is not displayed, or not displayed as laid down by the Act at that time when the property was brought to the hotel, the innkeeper loses the protection of limited liability and becomes fully liable for the whole amount of the loss or damage.
Innkeeper's full liability
In addition to full liability arising when the innkeeper does not display a copy of the statutory notice as laid down by the Act, the innkeeper loses the protection of limited liability and becomes fully liable for the whole amount of the loss or damage if the property was stolen, lost or damaged through the default, neglect or wilful act of the proprietor, or his staff; or was lost or damaged whilst expressly deposited for safe custody; or was refused for safe custody, or through some other default on the part of the innkeeper or his staff, it was not possible to depositit for safe custody.
