1. How would you rate your overall experience of Hotel Confessions?

The Shining  √        Room 1408 √        The Hotel Inspector          Fawlty Towers  √

2. What did you think of the room?

Trendy  √        Too small          Comfortable  √        Too big          Okay for 2 people but a squeeze for 12 plus sound technician  √        Boring          Sexy  √        Luxurious  √       A bit functional, a bit luxurious Functional

3. What did you think of The Night in the Hotel?

Could see the ending a mile off          Intriguing  √        Sinister  √        Unsettling  √        Slapstick comedy          Absurd √         Definitely saw some influence of German Expressionism  √        I would consider sharing a room with a stranger after seeing this          I would NEVER consider sharing a room with a stranger after seeing this  √

4. What did you think of Freya and Mr Mushroom?

Grown men should not play with young girls alone in hotel rooms  √        I do not want to know what is in Mr Mushroom's suitcase          Unsettling  √        Upbeat          Direct and straightforward          Elusive and enigmatic  √        Like a Willy Loman of pure evil crossing paths with one of the twins from The Shining √        Brilliantly sinister  √        Too short          Too long          Just right  √

5. Please add any other comments you would like to share about what you thought of Hotel Confessions:

"I would highly recommend Hotel Confessions to anyone looking for a theatre experience with a difference, and for anyone curious to see inside an excellent London hotel. The quality of the writing, acting and direction surpasses the gimmick of being staged in a real hotel room, but is obviously helped by the setting. Book now for a ticket, I hope you enjoy your stay as much as I did."
