The Hotel: S01E07 – Pillow Talk


Observational Documentary set in the Damson Dene Hotel in the Lake District

Relationships are under the spotlight at the Damson Dene. Nadine and Christian are at the end of a two-month trial separation. They’ve come to the Damson Dene with their teenage children Beth and Luke and cocker spaniel Cassie in a last-ditch attempt to save their marriage and bond again as a family. Christian and Nadine’s attempts to rescue their relationship veer from public displays of affection (to the embarrassment of Beth and Luke) to private moments of tension as they struggle to forgive and forget. Will a stay at the hotel get their relationship back on track? Meanwhile, Bob and Jeanie from Scotland have come to the Lake District in search of peace and solitude and to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Behind the scenes at the hotel, barman Paul and general assistant Lavinia are the only married couple living in the staff quarters. They came to the UK from Romania three years ago and are about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. Manager Wayne has become very close to them, and, despite his own chequered love life, remains a hopeless romantic. They’re away from their home, family and friends, and Wayne is determined to make their anniversary one to remember, so he enlists help from the other staff to prepare a surprise banquet.

Documentary following life at the Damson Dene, a three-star hotel in the Lake District, as staff try to keep holiday-makers happy during a busy summer season. Season two switches to the Grosvenor in sunny Torquay, where manager Mark tries to keep control over troublesome guests, and even more troublesome staff!
