George Pownall was a film-maker and freelance writer for many years. Shooting his award-winning documentaries took him round the world and to every corner of Britain, staying in hotels varying from the palatial to the downright disgusting. An enthusiastic cook, and after all these years, still an enthusiast for a good hotel, he is married to a food journalist.
