After carrying out a fire alarm test on a hotel, it was found to have no detection in one area, the owner claims this to be private accommodation within the hotel so doesn't need to be covered... After looking through the regs I couldnt find anything giving a definitive answer... any help would be much appreciated

many thanks

The part of a hotel found to have no detection, and the owner claimed this to be private accommodation within the hotel. This could this be considered private residential premises and therefore be exempt from the RR(FS)O but the occupants are still relevant persons and the Responsible Person has a duty to protect them.

He would have to ensure the occupants of the private accommodation can hear the hotel fire alarm and the RP should provide the minimum cover, which I would consider to be a part 6 for the accommodation, and for protection of the hotel guests from the private accommodation a heat detector connected to the hotel system in the entrance area, plus adequate fire compartmentation?
