Is anyone else watching this? The family used the WHOLE third floor.

I'm watching, what an amazing place!

CruCru Mon 03-Dec-12 21:37:52

I know. Rich people pay to get the rooms redecorated and then it gets put back to normal when they go.

I'm agog. I want to stay there. I can't get the bloody website to load though - obviously a lot of people are agog.

And the blonde woman got the doorman to walk her dog. She had a lot of chutzpah.

Fucking hell. It's like the ultimate toddler tantrum pandering grin

'The tap fell off and it almost put the whole stay in jeopardy'

I suppose if you spend £7k a night it's a bit of a bugger to have taps fall off. I do see your point though.

HassledHasASledge Mon 03-Dec-12 21:44:42

It's just not in my nature to be able to deal with that sort of faff - I don't think I could stop myself from saying "You want your room redecorated? Are you insane? You spoilt, spoilt brat"

ValPolliandtheIvy Mon 03-Dec-12 21:44:59

Yeah I get being a bit pissed off...bet the diva strop came more from the flunkies than the 'japanese pop star' herself though.

She wouldn't be doing anything so mundane as opening her own taps wink

I am loving it! Was lucky enough to have lunch in the posh restaurant earlier this year (not paid for by me, that is for sure) and have been slightly obsessed ever since. So this is right up my alley.

Love the guy's accent.

They're not using John Galliano for the Christmas tree - do you think it's because of his rant about Jews?

Why on EARTH would Claridges have a FAKE Christmas tree?

CruCru Mon 03-Dec-12 21:47:51

God these people work funny hours.

ValPolliandtheIvy Mon 03-Dec-12 21:48:10

I do like how they have actually pointed out that he has done it for the last two years and made out on the v/o that his services weren't required this year because of his anti semetic rant

Crucru - definitely - my thoughts exactly.

CruCru Mon 03-Dec-12 21:48:23

Is the tree listing a bit?

ValPolliandtheIvy Mon 03-Dec-12 21:48:39

It's wonky

SwedishEdith Mon 03-Dec-12 21:48:39

Agog also. 30 nights x 6.7k per night = insane

Waswondering Mon 03-Dec-12 21:49:27

what channel?

Lol Val true.

How old are those children <<shrieks>> that they "love this place" and more to the point that they know it's Art Deco!!?!?!

BBC2. First of a 3-part series.

CruCru Mon 03-Dec-12 21:50:55

Blimey - the Californians feel they know the Claridge's staff so well they are like family.

BBC2 Waswondering

bluebump Mon 03-Dec-12 21:52:01

Ooh I didn't realise there were 3 episodes, brilliant.

ValPolliandtheIvy Mon 03-Dec-12 21:52:15

Love the 'its so art deco' little girls.

I want to get them to a soft play or something, poor deprived munchkins
