Reply To: Hotel Security Breach

Does anyone remember one of the early “reality” TV shows called “Hotel” (not the one currently on Channel 4)?

It featured the Adelphi in Liverpool. A once-proud hotel which had, by then, been taken over by Britannia. The programme did the hotel no favours at all. Nor did the manageress. On the day of the bomb threat that prevented the Grand National from running and left literally thousands of people stranded in Liverpool, there were many stories of strangers putting other strangers up in their home, to help people out in the crisis that had ensued.

Not so at the Adelphi. They saw a money-making opportunity. The odious GM lady laid out mattresses in the ballroom and charged outrageous prices for a night on the floor.

Britannia making money out of other peoples’ suffering. No change there then.

I read the Sasha GM’s responses on TripAdvisor. It seems that 99% of the people who posted are liars, apparently. Interesting.

Regards, Simon
