According to this the hotel was bought last autumn by the Richardson Hotel Group for 1m, has that been shown yet?

As for Mark....
still there in the form of a cardboard cut-out

Hey guys...
after asking myself `why am i watching this` for so long.. (watched original series but couldnt understand why i found it so addicting lol)
i finally got really into the hotel series a month or two ago when the latest series started!

However.. the last two episodes despite some of the hillarious things (mark with brown face) it has been hard to `laugh out loud`, because behind alll the editing, and the extremely annoying christian who THANK GOD is gone! .. this is a man who looks at this point of the series to be on a nervous breakdown!

Its so hard to go from seeing a funny thing happen in the hotel, to then see mark all sad in the back having a ciggie!

And this is why the last couple of episodes i have watched but i havent enjoyed

Ps i am so glad to see the back of christian..... he is such a lazy ass god knows what.. and if not for him.. a good events manager who actualy did and promoted things, could have made the money to have made sure things didnt go the way they did in the end!

Hope christian is never hired by a hotel company again!

According to mark in his arguement with christian before he gave his notice... the hotel was in a financial mess for many years..... maybe he thought the money (which they surely get), from the filming, would save the hotel i dont` know!

But the whole financial problems/closure threats have ruined and put a huge sour note on what was was of the coolest, funniest and most original tv series for a long time!

Looking forward to tonight's episode. It's such a shame Mark couldn't make it work, but he really didn't manage very well. He seemed to let everyone else get on with it and then complain when they got it wrong, rather than check, coach and be the boss.

If he'd spent more time checking on the costs that were being charged for the events etc he'd have made more margin, rather than allowing an events manager to run it at a loss. He hired a hotel inspector and then didn't listen to the advice, again typical of a lot of the hotels from Channel 4's hotel inspector.

He should never have made Christian the events manager and should have hired a marketing and events manager, who would do deals with attraction to do weekend packages and host events etc. Package up something more than just a hotel.

Saw that. Apparently he's going to announce something at 9pm on FB....

Have a feeling it will be a bit of an anticlimax...

He might be selling up the big hotel and buying a smaller one that is easier to manage.

He wasn't the only investor in the company. He said as much in the last episode - someone had invested the year before, which pulled the hotel back from the brink then, when he was 15 says away from closing it completely.
The woman who was typing the memo to all staff about attending the meeting --- it was clearly stated in a conversation she was having with someone else that Mark owed her a lot of money she'd never get back. I assumed she may have been the 'individual' who invested? How very sad if she was.

Does Alison really work at Spar now, or was that a joke on here?
It was def said she works at a Spar now but at the time I remember wondering if they meant a 'spa' as in health centre?

It's more of a convenience store than a supermarket and no, it's not posh.

They could just take it to another hotel like they did before.

Do you think C4 will take on another sloppy hotel to follow next year, or this will be the end of the series forever? I missed the first series, so wondered why they switched to The Grosvenor then...?
