The Hotel Inspector episode 2

Episode 2 saw Alex head to the seaside town of Blackpool to inspect The Seacroft.

There were tensions to begin with as Alex gave the guarded hotel owner, Georgina, some home truths.

From critiquing the towel swans to the horror of the guesthouse’s merchandise – which included Seacroft mugs and baseball caps – Alex had a field day with the number of things that needed changing.

The Hotel Inspector made a joke that the couple were attempting to be more like The Hard Rock Cafe with their merchandise rather than what they really are – a small seaside guesthouse!

Ex-teacher Georgina, who gave up her career to start a new life in the hotel business,  did begin to take on board Alex’s comments after a few days.

Georgina and her husband faced a £50,000 bill and an empty B & B at the beginning of episode 2.

However, by the end of the show, the place was totally transformed with striped carpets and light furniture replacing the previously dated decor.

Alex opened Georgina’s eyes to the local tourist board, social media and more to get her B & B up and running.
