Inspector Morse author inspires Lyme Regis hotelier
THE hotelier of The Bay Hotel in Lyme Regis was inspired to read Inspector Morse after the author of the fictional detective stayed at his hotel.
Brendon Cable, who took over last year, said he read Colin Dexter’s novels after learning he had stayed in room nine – which is when he wrote The Way Through the Woods.
He has copies of Dexter’s books on hand for visitors to read and is planning to buy his books in bulk directly from the publisher.
He said: I’m an avid follower of Morse. “I started with The Way Through the Woods and have read a few more of his since. I enjoy this books a lot.”
He clarified they used to have a Thai restaurant in the hotel (but it had never solely been a restaurant) but now there was a bistro.
