GROSVENOR manager Mark Jenkins faced some tough management decisions in the latest episode of Channel Four's The Hotel, set at the hotel in Torquay's Belgrave Road.
He decided to take a tougher line on staff management, and that it was time for events manager Christian to become more cost-conscious.
Mark gave Christian a chance to prove himself by asking him to organise a money-spinning wedding fair at short notice, and to oversee a wedding that The Grosvenor had gifted to a local couple as part of a drive to raise the hotel's profile.
But Christian's personal life is in turmoil and he's suffering from a broken heart.
"Christian's day of reckoning is coming," says Mark.
The series has been attracting more than two million viewers every Sunday night, but not everyone agrees that it is good publicity for Torquay (see related articles on the right of this page and have your say in our online poll)
In the episode, tension is building between Mark and Christian. "Christian's day of reckoning is coming," says Mark. "I can't keep pandering to him.
"Christian is going to have to shape up or ship out."
Reservations manager Alison Pennell, who Tweets as @babybint1, says: "Tonite a gooden, more mayhem on the bay"

We asked if our online readers would consider The Grosvenor as the venue for a special celebration, like some of the people in this episode?
