Gordon Ramsay Comes to Windsor!

Filed under: SRDC — admin @ 8:19 pm

From the Producers of “Hotel Hell”

I am writing on behalf of the newest Gordon Ramsay show, “Hotel Hell” on FOX. This show is much like the Kitchen Nightmares format where we go into local Hotels and Inns and help turn them around. We will be shooting an episode in Windsor VT at the Juniper Hill Inn Feb 1st-Feb 5th, and we thought it might be of some interest to your readers.

While we shoot the show, the restaurant and Inn will be open to the public by reservation only. We are looking for people who want to dine and stay at the inn while we shoot, or be a part of the filming experience. This is not a free meal; all dinner patrons will have to pay for their own meal and drinks. The guest rooms will be available on select nights and the pricing has yet to be determined. They will be asked for their feedback by Gordon Ramsay.

For more information on reservations, email the reservation address: WindsorHotelshow@gmail.com.

We ask that all dinner requests include the first and last name, phone number and size of their party. If you have any questions please feel free to give me a call at 323-205-6447.

Unfortunately the staff of the Juniper Hill Inn is not available for comment at this time. All Producers and production staff are also not allowed to comment to any media while on site or filming. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email Jennifer Reed in the Fox PR department. Jennifer.Reed@fox.com. We look forward to hearing from you and working in your community – Hayden Mauk
