  • Hotel owner Basil Fawlty's incompetence, short fuse, and arrogance form a combination that ensures accidents and trouble are never far away.

  • Inept and manic English hotel owner and manager, Basil Fawlty, isn't cut out for his job. He's intolerant, rude and paranoid. All hell frequently breaks loose as Basil tries to run the hotel, constantly under verbal (and sometime physical) attack from his unhelpful wife Sybil, and hindered by the incompetent, but easy target, Manuel, their Spanish waiter.

  • A hotel by the sea is run by a stressed and moronic lunatic who can't seem to please his guest, has a shaky marriage with a cruel and self-centered woman, and a Spanish porter who can barely speak English. Fortunately he has an intelligent and attractive maid to help him out of the various situations he gets into.
