Summary The Hotel is an intriguing observational documentary series that looks at life in a British hotel as it's never been seen before. The Damson Dene is a three-star hotel in a five-star setting - the Lake District in the UK. In charge are Jonathan, the suave owner; Kirk, the creative chef; and Wayne, the ambitious general manager.Underneath them are a staff of 20 waiters, chambermaids and housekeepers, nearly all of whom come from Eastern Europe and are still learning to speak English. Together they cater for the great British public, who come away for weekend breaks bringing all their baggage with them.It's Wayne's first full summer in charge and he's got big plans to transform the Damson Dene into the finest hotel in Eastern Cumbria. But he's having a tough time getting his staff on side.In the first episode, a man from Essex nervously prepares to propose to his girlfriend, and a fellow guest awaits the results of a test for cancer. Meanwhile, manager Wayne Bartholomew is at a loss as he tries to deal with new assistant Amos, whose enthusiasm greatly outweighs his abilities (From the UK) (Documentary Series) (Part 1 of 8) CC
