Premier Inn has paid out a "substantial six-figure sum" to the family of a tourist who died after being scalded in a shower at the Premier Inn Edinburgh A1 Newcraighall.
Kalyani Uthaman, 59, from India had been on holiday in Scotland in August 2012 when she was "severely scalded" in the hotel shower. She suffered multiple organ failure and died in hospital weeks later, reports the BBC.
Her family sued for a six-figure sum to pay hospital fees.
A spokesperson for Premier Inn said: "We are very sorry for the tragic accident that occurred to Ms Uthaman in 2012 and our thoughts are with her family.
"We take millions of bookings every year and we would like to reassure our guests that this was an isolated incident. We constantly monitor and regulate the water temperature of our showers in line with industry best practice, which is based on Health & Safety Executive (HSE) regulatory guidance and NHS health care guidelines."
