Fawlty Towers, a 22-room hotel located in Torquay, the centre of the 'English Riviera', is a den of mishap and disaster.

Basil Fawlty, owner and manager of the hotel, is a man of infinite capability in impoliteness, caustic intolerance and general rudeness toward the guests he views as an unwelcome imposition. His wife, Sybil, is of a more practical demeanour, but seems to have an immunity to work. The running of the hotel is thus often left to waitress, maid, and all-round help Polly. Meanwhilse, Spanish waiter and porter Manuel is still struggling with English.
