End of the road for Torquay’s TV Hotel man
THE man made famous for his TV hotel series is selling up — and two of his other hotels have gone into administration.
Torquay’s Grosvenor Hotel is for sale and the neighbouring Kistor and Inglewood hotels have gone into administration.
Boss Mark Jenkins, who shot to stardom with The Hotel fly-on-the-wall documentary, says he is now quitting the hotel business.
Grant Thornton have been appointed administrators of Torquay-based Riviera Hotels LLP, the limited liability partnership set up by Mr Jenkins last year.
It was formed after the voluntary liquidation of Inglewood Hotel Limited, the company which formerly ran the Inglewood, Kistor and Grosvenor hotels, which was placed into creditors voluntary liquidation last summer owing £900,000.
