Richard E. Grant, 64, launched a furious rant over the prices of quarantine hotels for red list territory arrivals. The actor took to his Twitter account to reveal the meals he had been given while staying at the “£228 per day” accommodation.
He shared a photograph featuring a sausage stew, a tuna sandwich, a grain-based side dish, a small carton of orange juice, battered fish, and a side of chips.
According to the actor, a nearby hotel that was not being used to quarantine travellers was charging less than half of his hotel’s price.
He also pointed out that the four star hotel he was staying in was “under reconstruction”.
In view of his 276,000 followers, Richard fumed that he was “confounded” about the breakdown of his hotel stay.
He said: “In quarantine at Gatwick 4* Holiday Inn (under reconstruction) charged £228 per day.
“These 3 meals amount to approx £20.
“Non quarantine Holiday Inn nearby costs £89 incl breakfast.
“How does Gov justify this cost to a traveller for ‘hospitality’.
“You do the maths as am confounded!” [sic]
Fans of the star responded to his tweet to side with his point.
