Alex Polizzi turns her well-shod toes towards Edgware in north London and the Madonna Halley hotel. She arrives to find a chic, charming, extremely efficient little business that’s raking in enviable profits, so she goes home for a cup of tea. Of course not! The hotel is shoddy and badly finished. Its owners, the cheery Florides family, are well meaning but the place is losing money at an alarming rate.
Alex takes a quick inventory of its myriad failings, including a truly stomach-turningly horrible carpet in her ensuite bathroom, before cracking the whip at the Florides and bringing in her own design team to spruce the place up.
Alex Polizzi visits the Madonna Halley Hotel in north London, run by members of a Cypriot family whose Mediterranean roots are reflected in the interior design. Guests have previously indicated the Aegean-style fixtures and fittings can be disagreeable, but when the presenter suggests a radical overhaul, the owners reveal they are reluctant to part with their distinctive adornments.
