Dear Sir

I note with concern your review and indeed similar posts on various other social media in relation to your recent visit to the Bush Hotel following your discovery of a ‘covert’ dome camera in the gents’ toilets and the sinister implications arising.

Whist I have previously responded to you privately I wish, for the public record, to clarify the facts as indeed I could and would have (and indeed demonstrated to you) had you expressed concerns to a staff member on the day of your visit.

In the gents toilets I confirm there indeed is a relatively large dome camera clearly mounted and visible on the ceiling in the wash hand basin and hand drying (but not urinal) area as would be confirmed in the photographs you took.

Furthermore, this camera is also in fact a dummy unit the purpose of which is to deter mild antisocial behaviour (smoking, loitering etc) and there is absolutely no compromise in patron privacy.

Should you continue to be unhappy I again suggest you contact the Office of Data Protection or any other statutory body with whom we would confidently co-operate or indeed the Joe Duffy Show mentioned in your ultimatum of a previous post. Whatever your motivation I again respectfully request you remove your unhelpful and potentially damaging posts to our business.


In the meantime I do not propose to engage further on this issue being more inclined to look after my genuine, valued and appreciative patrons.
