I watched the entire series from its orriginal air and loved it. Personally, i think the idea wasso frsh, yes there have been so many hotel comedys/dramas/dramedeys, etc, but only set in lower class hotels. To see the scandals, many of which based on truth, in a 5* london hotel. the camera is brilliant, plus the links of accelerated shots of london is brilliant. the hotel always looks immaculate and the set is so convincing, if only it were real!!
