Well I'd guess they have final say on what get's aired.
Given the state of my body, I wouldn't be keen myself.

Hells teeth, why doesn't this woman with the rye bread problem just write it down?

This hotel must know they're not going to get anyone booking in after this - all they're showing is how terrible a hotel it is. And how did they get permission to put cameras in guests' rooms??

Fried bread...

I'm half thinking this is a set-up. It's too surreal.

What's 'terrible' so far?
As long as the rooms are clean and there's hot water, TV, phone works etc, I'm happy.
Then again I don't ask for Rye bread

The Hotel Inspector is back this week, no doubt you'll see some stuff really worth complaining about.

The clip they showed at the beginning of someone finding someone else using the shower in their room? The fact that hardly any of the staff seem to understand a word of English? (not being judgmental - they have actually deicated a lot of screentime so far to showing staff being barely able to understand a word that's said to them)

Within 10 miutes it shows that some hotels haven't moved out of the late 70's. How can you expect a good standard of accommodation when the manager lives in a s*** heap. Service looks likes its dreadful primarily down to willing but hapless workers from East Europe who don't get much support and try thier best without having a clue whats going on.
EWverything on this programme is what when I studied hotel mgmt 20 years ago was wrong with the industry.

Sorry but shouldn't the absolute minimum requirement for any job where you actually have to communicate with anyone, be that you speak the language to a standard where you can do just that?

That was kind of the point I was making in my first post - why show the hotel and soend the whole time focusing on how terrible it is? Why would any hotel let that be shown on TV, knowing it would destroy them? And why would guests allow cameras to be placed in their rooms..?

Also, the VTs involving the likes of the guy wanting to propose to his girlfriend. Did she not notice him sneaking off to film that..?
