Storyline

The Hotel Splendide is on a remote and cold island, accessible only by a once-a-month ferry. It's a dark and dreary spa created by the late Dame Blanche, whose grown children now run the hotel according to her specificiations, serving up ghastly seaweed and fish-based food and enema treatments. Kath, once the sous chef, arrives when she receives an anonymous letter telling her of the matriarch's death. Will she bring light into the place with her wonderful cooking?

Quotes

[first lines]
Stanley Smith: [narration] The Hotel Splendide is a unique and marvelous place. It's an ideal spot to rest or convalesce, with full hydro-spa facilities, no shortage of fresh fish, and a friendly family atmosphere, which hasn't change since Mrs. Blanche died last year.

Hotel S**t!
12 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

This film is so bad I can hardly believe it. It has no point, no humor and lacks any creativity at all;the movie, so called, sums up what is wrong with the UK and the type of films coming from there. Take a group of talentless actors, a ridiculous script and mix that with a brand of toilet humor concentrating on bowel movements and you will get some idea what this garbage is about. Possibly the ugliest actors I have ever seen in one film. How on earth any one can getting funding for such a load of rubbish, goodness knows. Everything is wrong with the film; the era it is set in....are we in the 1920's....see the gramaphone, or modern day see the hair-styles? Whatever non-entity created this drivel must have a fixation with either his mother, his digestive system...or more likely..... his sanity. Dear of dear: trash unlimited.
