Sophie is currently training as a kitchen hand, but she is inclined to wander. Daniel, also training in the kitchen, has his eye on Michelle from housekeeping but she is going out with Ben. And Tom, a former catering student, is back for some sea air and a trip down memory lane. Welcome to Foxes Academy, the strangest hotel in Britain.
Situated on the seafront in Minehead, and where the majority of the staff have learning difficulties, Foxes Hotel is open to fee-paying guests all year round and to students with special needs who stay for three years to learn all aspects of the hotel and catering industry.
But attending classes and working their way around the hotel are only part of the experience for the yearly intake. These lively students also learn how to be independent for the first time and how to cope with the ups and downs that go hand in hand with living away from home and with members of the opposite sex.
