The Hotel Inspector: The Black Bear
The brand new series of The Hotel Inspector continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
Alex Polizzi has brought countless hotels and B&Bs up and down the country back from the brink, but sheâ€™s not finished yet. Sheâ€™s back for a brand new series, armed with a bag of new tricks to keep the hotel industry on its toes – from a bus load of surprise guests to secretly filmed staff meetings, The Hotel Inspector is one step ahead, leaving the hoteliers with nowhere to hide.
This week, The Hotel Inspector resorts to drastic measures when she discovers a family business in meltdown. The Black Bear coaching inn in the town of Wareham, Dorset, is run by first-time hotelier Lynda Maytum, along with the rest of her family. Three years in and the family are stressed out, the business is losing money and guest reviews are shockingly bad.
This time the hotel has been rigged with cameras, giving Alex Polizzi the chance to see the management, warts and all. Next she fills the hotel with surprise guests and, when their stay turns to chaos, The Hotel Inspector has no option but to close the hotel down and show the family how an inn should be run.
