Channel 5’s The Hotel Inspector is back for its fourteenth series and the producers are looking for a business in Northumberland to benefit from the advice and investment that the series brings to each hotel it features. 

 

This time, Alex Polizzi is looking for a fresh challenge. Born from a long line of hoteliers and with 20 years experience under her belt, Alex expertly examines staffing, menus, décor and branding - breathing new life into Britain’s guest houses, B&B’s and hotels.

We’d like to hear from hoteliers who would be interested in this unique opportunity to get valuable, no-nonsense advice that will boost profit margins, a cash injection to help with changes, as well as the hotel being seen by a nationwide audience.

To apply for this fantastic opportunity, or just to find out more, please email Charlie or Marija at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call them on 01752 727 400. We also have a Facebook page @HotelInspectorSeries14.

About the last series

The 13th series of The Hotel Inspector was broadcast on Channel 5 this summer in its prime time slot and is the longest running show on the channel. In each hour long episode of The Hotel Inspector, we follow Alex as she helps to improve the fortunes of one hotel. Last series she helped a range of hotels, from the over stretched manager who was clocking-up over 90 hours a week; to a prestigious hotel whose owner wanted to attract a new kind of clientele. The series is made for Channel 5 by Twofour Broadcast.

Quotes

“I was a bit nervous at the beginning but Alex was on the same page as me. What Alex Polizzi did for me will last me years; the expertise she shared. It was the best experience of my career. My business has gone from strength to strength. I have had tonnes of job offers since it was on television, from big hotel chains and smaller businesses.”
Donna-Louise, Manager, The Blue Inn, Redditch

“It was hard work – early mornings and late finishes and had to do some tasks that Alex had set. The hotel went a bit mad..  The occupation levels are up and the series definitely helped to put us on the map. Get people staying from Norway, Denmark and Australia because they have seen us on the programme.”
Sarah, Owner, La Casa, Torrox - Spain

“It was fantastic experience. It was an opportunity to have the advice of a respected hotelier and that’s advice you would have to pay a lot of money for.  I went in knowing I would take Alex’s advice. What is the point in doing it otherwise? I certainly didn’t expect to get emails from Australia but I have. The night of the broadcast our website crashed.”
Trevor, Owner, Altantic House Hotel, Bude
