The Hotel Inspectors - S1-E4

Corrected entry: When the hotel inspectors arrive at the end of the show, one of them describes the hotel as having 26 rooms. However in 'A Touch of Class,' Sybil says the hotel only has 22 rooms.


Correction: Sybil doesn't say the hotel has only 22 rooms; she says "22 rooms is the limit". She is talking about rooms available if any upper class people such as Basil is hoping for, ring up asking for rooms, ie she doesn't count rooms occupied by permanent residents. The Hotel Inspectors' "26 rooms" means all the hotel's guest rooms, so to the 22 we add on 3 for the Major, Miss Tibbs and Miss Gatsby, and one more room now available because Polly is no longer living in. (Note – in "Gourmet Night" Basil tells the ladies "You're supposed to be in your rooms", thus confirming they have separate rooms at this time, and in "The Germans" Polly states "I'm only here at mealtimes", confirming she has moved out.).

The Hotel Inspectors - S1-E4

Corrected entry: When Mr Hutchinson is complaining that they keep getting his order for a cheese salad wrong, he says "I've had the omelette, then prawn cocktail with a silly name, then the plate of stew then the omelette again." However earlier on he was given a plate of paté NOT prawn cocktail.

Correction: Mr. Hutchinson is not happy about the service at the hotel, and people who are complaining vocally often get themselves onto a soapbox and slightly distort the truth while ranting. This is at best a character mistake.
