Rik Mayall wrote the script of Guest House Paradiso right after filming Canterville Ghost with James D'Arcy, when he was recovering from a quad bike accident. In Canterville Ghost, Rik played the demented priest who was trying to exorcise the ghost.

Richie and Eddie are the incompetent, pervy proprietors of Guest House Paradiso. They're so bad they make Basil Fawlty look like he's running a five star hotel.

Bill Nighy as Mr. Johnson. He was relatively unknown at the time of starring in this film. It wouldn't be until he appeared in 2003's Love Actually that he would shoot to international stardom. http://the-bottom.wikia.com/wiki/Mr_Johnson_%26_Ms_Hardy

Mr. Nice (Simon Pegg) and his family. Simon Pegg, like Bill Nighy, was relatively unknown at the time of the film, and Guest House Paradiso was only his second appearance in a feature film. http://the-bottom.wikia.com/wiki/Mr_%26_Mrs_Nice

Sophia Myles was one of the saucy wood nymphs. The Nymphs are figments of Richie's imagination, and come to him after he is knocked unconscious by Mr Johnson. They are clad in revealing white dresses and talk to him erotically before showering him with lager. His vision is unfortunately intruded upon by Eddie, who is also wearing a similarly revealing dress. http://the-bottom.wikia.com/wiki/Saucy_Wood_Nymphs
