English comedian John Cleese has taken to Twitter to rant about the substandard conditions of a Swedish hotel.

The 76-year-old celebrity famous for playing the eccentric and lamentable Basil Fawlty in televisions Fawlty Towers series seems to have checked in to a real-life version of the hotel while on the European leg of his ‘Last Time to See Me Before I Die’ tour, and he didn’t like it.

In true form, Cleese made a number of frank, albeit sarcastic, statements on Twitter from the ‘up-market’ Elite Hotel in Linkoping.

The Monty Python star groaned about the hotel’s cluttered corridor.

As well as the missing soap dish in his bathroom’s shower.

The scenes are reminiscent of Cleese’s time as bumbling Basil Fawlty, where he would often conceal errors or take dodgy shortcuts in the hotel, and just like Fawlty Towers, customers often scolded Basil for their disastrous stay.

Was John Cleese right in making a fuss? Have you ever stayed in accommodation that didn’t meet your expectation?
