    Into Happy Havens by Dennis Coates is a scrumptious English cream cake choc full of anecdotes and buffoonery so typical of the style set by Tom Sharpe in his heyday Dennis has created a wonderful satire of the hotelier world as if run by Inspector Clousseau Basil Fawlty and those responsible for Bottom in Hotel Paradiso The manager in uestion is Martin Hammond of the Happy Haven Hotel chain and uestionable his prowess is to the point of WTF is going on which he displays to adeuate effect Follow his antics as he reveals in lurid detail how not to run a hotelThe humour is crisp and often below the belt and this reader will never ever stay in a hotel again If I went into detail I would be here forever procrastinating upon the devious tactics employed by members of this once proud profession now left in tatters by this thorough exposeSuffice to say Dennis has lampooned his own experiences in the trade to great effectSo without further ado I dub this fine tome FIVE VENERABLE STARS and highly recommend it to all lovers of farce

    I wanted to read this book because I am working in a hotel and I know how hard it can be to get all the things rightThere is something I’ve come to value about hotel stays how in the accustomed rituals and formalities of arrival and departure each visit mimics a larger journey And in that transition the span between check in and check out guests are liberated from the uncomfortable truth that sooner than anyone likes to imagine the trip has ended and the time has come to pay the billIn his book Dennis Coates shared funny moments as poor Martin Hammond the new appointed manager tries without success to deal with managing the hotel a large staff and of his love lifeDealing with unhappy customers and dishonest staff MrHammond give us a snapshot of life in the hospitality industry very close to the well known English series of Basil Fawltyfull of British humor and embarrassing situations I'll give it an incontestable five stars

    ? Why was Into Happy Havens written as a novel?Answer The narrator in a work of fiction is granted an opportunity to express hisher views vividly with many personal empiric opinions about issues which will be rejected in fact based reportsThe editing process for reports or research findings does not allow such flexibility nor does it permit or encourage the writer to make any statement which could be regarded as politically incorrect beyond the ability of the authors to deliver contrary to any legal or corporate laws or outside of the terms of reference that set parameters on the researchenuiry before commencementAs an example of a ‘reality v perception’ approach no reportresearch could include the statement “ A Welsh windbag who drones on for ages and ages grazing happily on the southern slopes of the Orals”as a viable expression of the shared views that exist between Senior Junior managers in the same organisationThe freedom granted to the narrator in a reality based novel enables himher to make pertinent asides and use humour or romance to illustrate valid and memorable lines which re enforce the novel to lasting effectDennis Coates
