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

CruCru Mon 03-Dec-12 21:52:40

Oh fair enough, they are their most frequent guests.

Was laughing at struggling about how to address a card to The Edge grin

£5.5k x 16 nights. Mind the General Manager thinks people spend £10k on a flight to NY. I don't.

Chottie Mon 03-Dec-12 21:55:45

I am lovin' it smile

Love how the general manager is worrying himself about the fruit bowl in the corridor!

Nice diplomatic answer about when their last visit will be.

I've wanted to go there ever since I saw David Heathcote's brilliant programme about it called Art Deco Icons.

I've told dh I want to stay there for my 50th. He just changes the subjecthmm

They came from California and only left the hotel twice. I know they are old but that seems very weird. At least they look appreciative.

Oh bless, look at her housecoat. Reminds me of my darling grandma.

CruCru Mon 03-Dec-12 21:59:42

A friend had her 40th birthday there. God knows what it cost.

Oh how sad.

CruCru Mon 03-Dec-12 22:00:51

It was their last stay sad.

ValPolliandtheIvy Mon 03-Dec-12 22:00:57

Oh sad about Mrs M

bluebump Mon 03-Dec-12 22:02:03

Oh! That's sad!

"life is short, we're only passing through". I hate it when people say things like that, makes me all teary.

germyrabbit Mon 03-Dec-12 22:04:34

life isn't that short really though is it, lasts a while grin

enjoying this series, love hotel nosiness

Germy have you tried Richard Grants Hotel Secrets? We are loving that one too.

TunaPastaBake Mon 03-Dec-12 22:06:43

Lovely programme.
Sad about the American lady.
Love that general manager. His accent is fab.

HassledHasASledge Mon 03-Dec-12 22:07:08

That was a lovely programme - will keep watching. I love quirky shows like that. And I'm a bit in love with Irish "life is short" guy.

germyrabbit Mon 03-Dec-12 22:10:08

when is that on hearts?

diddiehunter Mon 03-Dec-12 22:33:20

think i feel sorry for the super rich... they have to have lifes small pleasures overly dramatic or faked i.e the frogman and the fish story. just to get the kind of satisfaction i get from a hot choc and a movie!!sad

valpolliandtheivy Mon 03-Dec-12 22:52:46

True Diddie. They will never know the proper <aha!> of pure JOY when I can actually order in a Dominos....that's so brilliant.

grin <sincere

diddiehunter Mon 03-Dec-12 23:03:26

MorrisZapp Mon 03-Dec-12 23:08:06

Oh no, the dear old lady passed away. I feel bad for spitting my coffee out at the sight of her dressing gown.

Can't wait for next week.

It made me squirm but i was glued to it.

The thought of all the tremendous time and effort put in by the staff at Claridges to basically lick the arses of the super-rich and pander to the toddleresque whims of grown adults made me weary.

There seemed lots of perfectly nice people but they don't need that kind of wealth or that level of pampering and pandering because of it.

Just seems such a waste of all that dedication and effort.

Up the revolution!
