I once made an entire and convincing website for this ficticious hotel, using the above graphics, but I could not face dealing with the hundreds of enquiries from gullible people that it would have attracted, so I did not publish it.
I had driven past this building many times, and it obviously once used to be some sort of guest house, but for many years it seems to have been occupied by people who were not used to living in houses, let alone having neighbours who weren't living in anything which did not have wheels attached. It is still there, but has deteriorated even further - which would be a big dissapointment for anyone turning up who expected it to be as attractive as it looks in this photo.
I thought that I could list it on Trip Advisor and write many reviews for it under many different pseudonyms, but this would have been a rather time-consuming joke, no matter how much it amused me, so it is still languishing on the website builder.
If it ever came up for sale, I think it could make quite a bit of money from it as the quirkiest hotel in Britain. I would leave the facade exactly as it is - including the abandoned cars - make sure the the interior just about complied with regulations, and I would employ very surly staff who have a minimal grasp of English, along with the worst cook I could find, who would provide breakfast between 6.30am and 7.30am, then refuse to serve anyone who arrived a second after.
After all, Basil Fawlty was based on a real hotelier who was so rude that to stay in his establishment became a regular treat for all the celebrities who booked in just to be insulted by him. Here are some comments in the guest book:
“Very nice”. Dave Tillman - Managing director, ‘YourPhone’ Ltd.
“Couldn’t fault it”. Darren Spink - ‘Up Yours’ scaffolding, Bexhill.
the breakfast!” Sean Tomlinson - ‘Cockayne’ shopfitters, Hounslow.
“Gorgeous dog!” Phil Drayton - ‘GHB Security’, Milton Keynes.
“We will come
next year!” Joanne Babcock, Cheam Naturist Society.
“So quiet!” Jim Netherwell, R.N.I.D.
“Thank you for
having me”. Cindy Merkin, ‘Bremerton’, USA!
“このホテルは最高なんだよ” Mr. A. Takada, Japan.
