The Hotel

The Hotel
An intriguing series looking at life above and below stairs in the Lake District’s Damson Dene and Torquay’s The Grosvenor Hotel. From the team behind Bafta-winning One Born Every Minute, this series reveals life in a British hotel as it’s never been seen before. Nestling in the five-star setting of the Lake District is The Damson Dene, a typical three-star British holiday hotel. In charge are Jonathan, the suave owner; Kirk, the creative chef; and Wayne, the ambitious general manager. Underneath them are a staff of 20 waiters, chambermaids and housekeepers, nearly all of whom come from Eastern Europe and are still learning to speak English. Together they cater for the great British public, who come away for weekend breaks bringing all their baggage with them. “The Hotel” documents life both upstairs and downstairs over a busy summer season as the worlds of the staff and the guests collide. The Hotel is a fly-on-the-wall British television documentary series which has ran for three series consisting of 25 episodes. It is produced by Dragonfly TV and Film and is broadcast on Channel 4. The series is filmed using fixed cameras positioned in several locations around the complex rather than using a camera crew. Series one was filmed at the Damson Dene Hotel in England's Lake District over five weeks in the summer of 2010. The second and third series were filmed at the Grosvenor Hotel in Torquay, Devon, owned by manager Mark Jenkins who became something of a cult character as a result of the show.
