Gordon Ramsay Refused to Swim in a Hotel Pool for This Very Nasty Reason

The amenity was far from appetizing for the star chef.

If you thought it was bad when Gordon Ramsay had to eat his least favorite food on live television, you might want to prepare your stomach for this challenge — a hotel that is beyond disgusting.

In an episode of Gordon's Hotel Hell that truly lives up to his name, the chef prepares himself for a swim in the pool at The Four Seasons Inn in West Dover, Vermont, which he derisively calls, "the fake Four Seasons." (Right: It's not part of the famously luxurious chain.)

He ends up not taking a dip after all because he decides that the "floaties" he sees in there aren't of the swan or flamingo variety that everyone loves to post on social media.

Nope, it turns out the floating objects on the pool at the Four Seasons Inn are actually comprised of dog poop.

Unfortunately, the horrors continue inside the place, where Gordon uses blue light to show how unclean the bedding in the rooms are. There's also dog hair on the tablecloth and plates in the restaurant, presumably from the inn's resident dog Layla.

"I've never had the complaints I had today," said the sad owner. "It's humiliating, it's embarrassing, it's like being flogged in the center of town."

The inn was rechristened into a dog-friendly dwelling called Layla's Riverside Lodge and now has a 3.5 star rating on Yelp.
