Hotel Inspector – Channel 5

The Hotel Inspector C5 - Hoteliers and Alex outside Rosehill House Hotel Burnley

Alex Polizzi tries to reverse the fortunes of more hotels and B&Bs, beginning in Burnley. Lancashire

Alex Polizzi is back for a new series to try to rescue struggling hotels.

This first episode has a double whammy – not just a business needing a shot in the arm, but a family business.

And, as regular viewers will know, family-run hotels can throw up any number of curve balls for Alex to deal with.

She is, though, famously from a family of hoteliers herself, and manages a hotel owned by her mother, Olga Polizzi.

It’s owned by John and run by his daughter Emma, but they have very different ideas about its future.

Can Alex offer a solution to satisfy everyone involved?
