The Hotel Inspector

Regency Rooms

Series 13 - Episode 1 Regency Rooms



Small-time hoteliers of Britain quake as Alex Polizzi hits the road again to sort them out. First in the firing line is a couple in the Merseyside resort of Southport, who have expanded their Peaky Blinders-themed craft ale bar to include bedrooms upstairs. Proprietor John keeps racing ahead with ideas for other ventures he wants to launch – a tapas bar, an organic chicken shop, a roof terrace – even as the hotel rooms are a work in progress, to say the least.

At one stage he arrives in London for a meeting with Polizzi, sees a disused Tube station and starts concocting a plan to redevelop that too. It turns out there’s a good reason he’s in such a hurry.


Alex Polizzi returns to help a couple with their beach-front business in the Merseyside resort of Southport. John and Mel opened a craft ale bar and started renovating the flats above it into a hostelry despite having no experience. With the residence more of a building site than a boutique hotel, Alex has to get stuck in as the first guests are due in a matter of weeks.
