After watching the last episode of Hotel Babylon - I know I should be ashamed of myself - I just can't believe the general managers's hair or her management meetings. They are hysterical!
Recent viewing will have convinced many potential recruits to this industry that unless they are happy to be stabbed in the back in the line of duty they should look for another career.
The staff may all be glamorous, spend all their time chatting and kissing in the front hall or linen room, arrange surprise dinners for their boss, throw profits down the bar sink in front of the general manager - the list is endless - but regrettably this isn't the best advert for the industry.
It could have been such a great story. But this version is just too much fantasy. I would love to meet the co-author, said to be a five-star London general manager. No wonder he wishes to remain anonymous!
