Hotel hits back at Jim Davidson after he slams it on Facebook

A hotel in Cornwall has fired back at complaints made by comedian Jim Davidson on Facebook, saying he was rude to staff.

Davidson stayed at the four-star Peventon Park Hotel in Redruth last week, when he played a gig in the town on Tuesday night.

The following day he posted to say the property was 'run by millenials' and had 'no heating or hot water'.

The  Facebook post also criticised two hotels in Exeter, saying the first 'had no parking' and the second one 'stank'.

He added: "Now at Premier Inn. You know what you get there. As long as Lenny f****** Henry doesn't show up I'll be OK."

The Peventon Park Hotel general manager Nick Lawson said Davidson was 'rude to bar staff' and didn't complain of any issues during his stay.

He told Cornwall Live: "There was no hot water when he took a shower which was sod's law. If he'd let us know at the time we could have rectified the problem or even given him another room.

"It would have been nice if he had mentioned it at the time rather than taken to social media.

"He was rude to bar staff when he was here. Everyone has a right to an opinion, but it would have been nice if he had raised it with us."
