Alex Polizzi revisits clapped-out hotels she has tried to rescue in previous series. In this case that means a return to the Meudon in Cornwall, a family-owned joint that, when Alex first discovered it, managed to combine time-warp decor (“It’s done up like God’s waiting room,” she groaned) with the kind of glorious location that could give a guest tingles.
The gardens and private beach were so special, regulars clearly didn’t mind having stained furniture and a colour scheme that stretched from maroon to pink. Alex pressured the owners – 85-year-old Harry and son Mark – to update the look and feel of the place, but two years on, have they embraced change or fallen back on old ways?
Alex Polizzi finds out what has happened to some of the struggling hoteliers she helped in the past. In the first edition, she goes back to the Meudon Country House Hotel near Falmouth, to check in once again with the Pilgrims on Cornwall's south coast. Two years ago she found Harry and his son Mark struggling to balance the books, and encouraged them to revamp their menu and refurbish many of the rooms. On her return, she discovers Mark has passed the running of the hotel to his sister Gaye Woods.
