Hotel Hell Is Formulaic But Classic Gordon Ramsay

Gordon Ramsay on Hotel Hell tells the owner  of the Cambridge Hotel “You’re screwing the business”. Well he is screwing his staff with news that he is currently being sued by staff from his Fat Cow  restaurant  in Los Angeles.

The Daily Mail says the action is about lack of overtime paid and issues surrounding meal breaks and tips. Gordon has responded by saying new management has been put in place.

Clearly he is too busy doing all his shows then looking over what is happening in his restaurants.

His latest show to hit Australian screens is Hotel Hell on NINE. It is like Gordon’s Kitchen Nightmares, but this time it is in hotels that are struggling.

He goes and stays, identifies the problems usually bad cleaning, uncomfortable beds and rank food. He then gives them a bit of a razzle. Of course there is his usual swearing, but this time we also got Gordon in all his naked glory stepping into a shower. Have to say it was pretty impressive. Hopefully this will be a feature in each week’s episode.

Hotel Hell is formulaic but well worth a look at.

Hotel Hell on NINE Monday at 8.30pm.

Watched it and will watch the rest of the season. Kept on thinking Faulty Towers.. decor, food, hotel owner….

Was good to see Gordon mentor the young boy.

As far as the shower scene goes, they have to include it in every episode LOL

I enjoyed it, too – love a good “bring them back from the brink & make over show”. Love him or hate him, GR gives great (if formulaic) TV.

I do, though, have a bad habit of googling these places to see if the makeover made a difference (do the same with Mary Queen of Shops). Not surprisingly the help they give is often like administering some CPR before a delayed demise.

Loved it. Loved his kindness to the apprentice, seems like that poor kid needed a break.

Another vote for the weekly gratuitous shower scene please!
