But perhaps the greatest gift of owning a place like this is the scope it offers to improve; to develop; to create; experiment; play; and, not least I hope, to bring pleasure to others. It also allows the proprietor to indulge his own interests and passions - be they food, wine, music, theatre, or anything else for that matter. This is no chain hotel, no bed factory. There are no institutions or shareholders to impress. The work may be exhausting but it can be immensely satisfying. In my experience, the best hotels are those which resound with the personality and prejudices of their custodians'. The Castle at Taunton is one of Britain's great historic hotels, famous for its outstanding hospitality and a restaurant ranked with the best in the country. Yet the course of true innkeeping does not always run smooth. Hotels mimic real life. They are a living stage on which the routines of work, relaxation and entertainment are played out, and often the thin lines that divide reality, fantasy and the absurd become blurred. Kit Chapman's diary - which describes a year in the life of his hotel from September 1996 - raises a magnifying glass to the human condition, exposing the frailties, foibles and vanities of the world and the conflicts, betrayals and tensions of everyday life. This is the period when The Castle loses its precious Michelin star and sets out to regain it. It is also the year of Tony Blair's historic election victory and the death of Diana, Princess of Wales - events which touch the life of the hotel and its owner. (Book ref. 527) £8.00
