Harry was happily running a risk-free seaside Bed & Breakfast when a good friend approached him. “How do you fancy joining forces on a much larger hotel?” he was asked.
So what would YOU do?
The two friends and their wives bought a beautiful 28-bedroom hotel by the English seaside... but not all was as it seemed. Their new partner was a Californian businessman who gave the appearance of being wealthy and successful - a large house close to the Pacific Ocean and always travelling first class. But was there substance behind the show?
Harry had invested all his savings - he’d gone for broke... literally. But when the cracks starting appearing - in more senses than one - he wondered if he’d ever make it out of the experience with his life intact, let alone his money.
Hotel Secrets takes you through the two years of ups and downs; the trials and tribulations of friends coming to terms with frailties of human nature whilst trying to keep afloat in a cut-throat business world. You’ll get to see the crazy goings-on behind the scenes of hotel ownership in this true-to life version of Fawlty Towers.
If you’ve read Harry Pope’s book ‘Buried Secrets’ about his time in the funeral industry, you’ll love this amazing follow-up. Everything within these pages is true, although the names have been changed to protect the innocent.... and the guilty!
