His body was discovered at 7:45am local time on Monday (11:45pm Sunday GMT) by concerned staff when he didn’t respond to a breakfast call.

Receptionist Marilyn Serenso said: “There were no sounds inside so I peered through an open window and saw his body on the bed.”

Police were called and detectives are now working to determine what happened – although foul play is not suspected.

Officers said that it did not appear as though Mr Guy had been attacked or robbed as “all his belongings were intact”.
