Its not every day you get to rub shoulders with an Oscar winning movie star....but we did! When Daniel Day Lewis came to the Victoria Hotel to shoot his latest movie Phantom Thread we could hardly contain our excitement, being in the presence of Hollywood royalty was quite an experience for us all.
Not only did we watch the scenes being played out in front of us but some of our staff were actually cast as extras.....can you imagine?
Megan & Amy had a very important part to play in the Restaurant where Daniel first meets his muse Alma (Vicky Krieps) who incidentally stayed in our four poster bedroom throughout the filming.
The hotel was chosen for it's unique and beautiful setting as well as some of our original features although that didn't stop Director Paul Thomas Anderson changing our windows to single glazing, taking radiators off the walls, changing the lights and switches as well as many other finer details.

Daniel's leading lady Vicky Krieps stayed in our four poster room for the duration of the filming in North Yorkshire
Our Sea View Restaurant had a full make over including wallpaper, lighting, tables and chairs and they even changed the windows to single glazing - happy to say they put the double glazing back in when they finished!
This is certainly something we will remember for a very long time
