Publisher's Summary

Miss Marple, Agatha Christie’s deceptively mild spinster sleuth, is being treated to a few days’ holiday by her niece, staying at Bertram’s Hotel, a dignified, unostentatious establishment tucked away in a back street of busy Mayfair.

Here is a place where sedate upper class ladies, retired military gentlemen and the higher echelons of the clergy can indulge in the comforts of a bygone age. But Miss Marple begins to feel uneasy. Something sinister lurks beneath the polished veneer. Why are so many major crimes associated in some way with the hotel or somehow implicate eminently respectable people staying there?

June Whitfield stars as Miss Marple in this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of a classic brain-teaser from the Queen of Crime.

Magnificent

I love Agatha Christie’s work and have read and listened to them all. This dramatization moves at a great pace and remains pretty close to the book. Can’t get enough!!

Another great BBC radio production

I really enjoy the BBC radio collection of A. Christie. June Whitfield is excellent as the voice of Miss Marple. Although Miss Marple is not at the center of this story line, I still really enjoyed the mystery and the background noises.

Superb, but not sufficiently faithful to the book

Beautifully performed... I simply cannot imagine a better enactment! The music and sounds also were masterfully done. They conveyed the atmosphere so wonderfully, it's the best audio book of this type that I have come across.

I Adore A Story Set In A Hotel!

What did you like most about At Bertram's Hotel (Dramatised)?

I enjoyed the setting the most and that it was a dramatization. I love when a book is set somewhere like a hotel, especially if it is an old hotel . The description was wonderful and very easy to picture it as the author saw it. I love listening to dramatization , it brings all the characters and story to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I did not have a favourite , I enjoyed them all ! Agatha Christie writes interesting characters so you can't help loving each one of them, faults and all!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I enjoyed Miss Marple's arrival at the hotel, hearing the description of what the hotel was like and the other guests that were staying there .

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I wanted to go straight back to the beginning and read it all over again. It made me smile.

Any additional comments?

Go get it folks!

LOVE 💕 IT WONDERFUL ENTERTAINMENT

Agatha Christie at her best wrote wonderful comic staged plots, nothing to do with reality and around the world we still love her work. Christie is all about ‘Escapism’ nothing to do with day to day world. she is all about curling up on a dark winters day with a good old drink as you slip away into ‘Agatha Christie Land’ where you know as you enter unrealism, no matter how gruesome the plot is, at the end, all is well and wonderful again as we slip back into real life.

Poor plot

I chose this, hoping for the atmosphere of a luxury hotel in a bygone era. There was some, but not enough that I would listen again.
The plot is pretty awful - childish in its ending. The reliance on coincidence, the unlikely relationships of the characters to each other and a comic escape make for an unsatisfactory conclusion.
