Hello, how are you? Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. Please note there may be delays in responding as I am away helping other customers but I will get back to you as soon as I can. I may also need to ask you some clarifying questions to determine the legal position.
Thanks for your message, I appreciate it is important for you.
The smoke free legislation makes it illegal to smoke in all public enclosed places. This applies to hotels and guest houses and therefore smoking in these places is against the law. As an owner of a hotel you are required to display “no-smoking” signs at entrances to your hotel and to take all reasonable action to ensure your business, staff and premises comply with the Regulations.
You can impose a smoking fee however the smoke-free laws are enforced by the Council, whether it is for non compliant guests or non compliant business owners.
I hope this helps. Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions. I am happy to help.
