Patronising husband staggered I ran Hotel Grand (6-4-4)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'patronising' is the definition.
'husband staggered i ran hotel grand' is the wordplay.
'husband' becomes 'h'.
'staggered' indicates anagramming the letters.
'grand' becomes 'thou' (synonyms).
'iranhotel' anagrammed gives 'olierthan'.
