Dinner At The Hotel Splendid...
No, the Hotel Splendid is much superior to that.
It started life as a double decker bus plying its trade on the streets of England's Nottingham until. Until Entrepreneur Les and the Very Gorgeous Dee purchased it sight unseen and had it shipped to New Zealand.
And now almost hidden from view in the little bohemian village of Haumoana in the Hawkes Bay it awaits a complete restoration but enjoys hosting the few guests that grace its unique and eclectic style.
Wonderful and amusing dinner guests included a man who's made a career out of making sure the correct number of lengths of spaghetti get put in a can, a woman who while wearing a red rose in her hair, sings Verdi's Requiem and drives a train through the Swiss Alps and another, a woman with a feverish fetish for wearing kitch footwear.
And the food? I'm glad you asked.
All five courses were just splendid...

I would love to live on board a bus like that. Les especially looks very relaxed and happy.ReplyDelete
Lovely blog today - Thanks Hotel SplendidReplyDelete
This double decker and the folks having fun in it are splendider than splendid. They should seriously reconsider calling this bus Hotel Splendidest. Can I make a reservation?ReplyDelete
