They soon lose the fortune in a fire, so they must stay and make the hotel work, but get caught up in local crime mysteries too. Written by KGF Vissers

lighthearted romp
10 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, I only started watching it because its filmed in my part of the country, and yes, the first episode was a bit (?) unbelievable, but I must confess I've been enjoying it in an unchallenging way. It was mercilessly derided by all the critics based on the first episode, but it has improved. Oddly, it is the 'locals' that seem to have the best parts, although the girls are finally getting a bit fleshed out. Before I even saw it, I thought 'Widows meets 2,000 Acres', and I was a bit miffed to read just that in the press.... As others have said, its a jolly escapist romp of a Sunday evening, its not into costume drama territory.
