Viewers of A Very British Hotel were left baffled on Tuesday night after they were convinced the show was a parody of hit comedy The Office.

The Channel 4 new show, titled A Very British Hotel Chain: Inside Best Western, goes behind the scenes at its headquarters in York, as well as visiting hotels up and down the country.

During the first episode, we were introduced to Best Western’s recently hired and youngest-ever CEO, Rob Paterson as he goes about rejuvenating the brand, as well as hotel inspector Alistair.

Although during the show, viewers couldn’t help but spot some similarities to Ricky Gervais’ sitcom The Office.

One even described it as the ‘funniest programme of lockdown’.

Taking to social media to praise the show, one viewer tweeted: ‘This is actually brilliant. Very much like The Office.’

Another commented: ‘This has to be parody Channel 4. Literally the funniest programme of lockdown to date.’

While one added: ‘This is a bit like The Office, isn’t it!’

In Tuesday night’s instalment, Best Western’s director of business development, Terii, also tried to secure chef Marco Pierre White as the company’s first celebrity hotelier – and she succeeds.

Marco Pierre White appears in A Very British Hotel Chain: Inside Best Western on Channel 4 at 9pm.
