Silky Hotel is the most romantic hotel in the world (this side of the M55).

From the billowing gauze of The Meatloaf Suite to the twinkling lights on The Kem & Amber Terrace, every detail has been designed with obsessive care. This is the only hotel where you'll find the original tent peg from Brokeback Mountain and the air is infused with the delicate aroma of oysters - prepare to smell the love.

But the hotel is in trouble. Guests don't turn up like they used to, and unbeknownst to Jim, the debt collectors are closing in. In a last-ditch effort to save Silky's, Barbara takes a punt on an advert in the local paper: "TV show wants the world's most romantic hotel."

When flashy producer Coral (Cocker) arrives, Jim and Barbara must wrangle their motley crew of staff to ensure they make it onto television. If they fail, it'll be check-out time at Silky Hotel - for good.
