Hotel owner Basil Fawlty's incompetence, short fuse, and arrogance form a combination that ensures accidents and trouble are never far away.
The Gleneagles Hotel in Torquay, the hotel upon which Fawlty Towers is based, closed permanently in February 2015. It is to be demolished and retirement apartments built on the site.
I think it's very sporting of Mrs Fawlty to go over there and listen to all that rubbish!
Basil Fawlty: Salt of the Earth, couldn't live without her.
Major Gowen: She's a fine woman, Mrs Fawlty.
Basil Fawlty: No, I wouldn't go that far.
Major Gowen: No, nor will I.
The layout of the hotel from interior shots would place the windowless kitchen hard against the front left of the building, as seem from the outside (if there were space for it at all). In exterior shots there is a large bow window here.
In the titles sequence of each episode, some of the letters on the Fawlty Towers sign are usually mixed up or missing altogether. The signs appear as follows: 1. Fawlty Towers 2. Fawlty Tower 3. Fawty Tower 4. Fawty Toer 5. Warty Towels 6. NO SIGN 7. Fawlty Tower 8. Watery Fowls 9. Flay Otters 10. Fatty Owls 11. Flowery Twats 12. Farty Towels
