Camelot Castle Hotel’s no-booze idea. Wonder how long that lasted?


Friends of Narconon-styled idea lasted, what.. 1? 2 months?

It’s all very well having a dream of a world free from alcohol – especially if you’ve had some drug and alcohol problems yourself, been through Narconon and come out the other side as a fully ‘cured’ Scientologist.

Which is why, presumably, John Mappin and Ted Stourton concocted the idea in 2001 to get the hotel onto the BBC News website by announcing they were no longer prepared to sell alcohol at the Camelot Castle Hotel because of its ‘destructive effects’.

Good news, except it didn’t last 5 minutes.

If anyone can tell us exactly how long it took before John and Ted realised this was an even quicker form of business suicide than the one they’re currently engaged in, please do comment and let us know 🙂
