The hotel in Torquay in which the sitcom was based is called the Gleneagles Hotel. It is a far cry from the design of the one used in the series. It is a typical 1960's/70's structure.

I have actually SPOKEN to the 'real' Cybil Fawlty. It was her husband that Basil was based on, apparently. She strongly denies this of course. It started as a result of the producers staying at said hotel and were victims to the antics of the proprietor. Consequently, Basil Fawlty was born.....

Like Pirate says, where the hotel is that they filmed the series in is a mystery. Perhaps some of you sleuths out there could find out.
