Mice go chomping at the Savoy
Sunday 22 June 1997
Last week The Savoy's staff confessed to guests that the hotel, where the cheapest room costs pounds 250 a night, is suffering from a small invasion of mice. Their presence is an embarrassment to the five-star establishment, whose name ought to be a byword for elegance and style.
When I investigated the story last Friday night three mice with their distinctive snouts and large ears appeared from under a sofa when I provoked them by dropping a peanut. Yesterday a spokesman for The Savoy said: "It could happen in any old building. We hope it won't happen again." Meanwhile, any guest who spots a mouse gets a free drink.
