OK everyone. Where is this, and what is its connection with Red Dwarf?
As Cappsy correctly guessed, this is the Midland Hotel in Manchester, where the hotel scenes in Stasis Leak were filmed, and where the cast stayed.
You can tell it’s the same place just from looking in the door even though I’ve never actually been in, as people wielding cameras would probably get thrown out again.
It’s about 5 minutes walk from the BBC building in Manchester.
