Episode 3: Caer Beris Manor, Brecon Beacons

Summary

Alex Polizzi visits Caer Beris Manor, run by former Dubai real estate agent Omar and his wife, Kim, along with Kim's publican parents, Pete and Angie. In 2019, this family of first-time hoteliers took on the 22 bedroom manor near the Brecon Beacons, complete with 30-seat restaurant and function room. Despite their inexperience, the family have high-minded ambitions for their business

Review

The problem with Caer Beris Manor, a 22-bedroom 18th-century hotel in the Brecon Beacons, is not the usual dirty bathrooms or disappointing breakfasts. It’s not even its dodgy décor. It’s unrealistic dreams.

Omar’s ambition is to have a Michelin-starred restaurant while his wife Kim wants a chain of manor house hotels offering “affordable luxury”. Her overworked parents, who co-own it, simply wish to retire. Alex Polizzi spends much of her time banging her head against (strangely decorated) walls because Omar is very stubborn. No matter how many times she tells him fine dining offers a low-profit margin, he persists with his dream.
