Wrongly believed hotel is obliged to put on film (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

misthought

Here is my best explanation:

'wrongly believed' is the definition.

'hotel is obliged to put on film' is the subsidiary indication.

'hotel' becomes 'h' (phonetic alphabet: alpha, bravo, charlie etc.).

'is obliged to' becomes 'ought'.

'put on' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'film' becomes 'mist' (I've seen this in other clues**).

'h'+'ought'='hought'

'hought' put after 'mist' is 'misthought'.
