Fawlty Towers moves upmarket

Basil FawltyThe hotel that inspired the hilarious Fawlty Towers sitcom has undergone a four-star facelift.   When John Cleese and the Monty Python checked into the Hotel Gleneagles in Torbay to a decidedly frosty welcome, and hence the Fawlty Towers series was born.   Now under new management, the hotel has 41 rooms, around half  of which have  sea views.   Perhaps unsurprisingly, you’ll find a small section of the hotel devoted to TV memorabilia. The hotel will be officially re-opened by Prunella Scales (who played Basil Fawlty’s wife, Sybil) next month.
