From BBCAmerica.com:Technically, this isn't a new series as it originally aired on the U.K.'s Five channel starting in 2005, but BBCA has just started running it, and I'm loving it. I spent a good part of my childhood in the U.K. and it's shocking to see that many of the Hotels & Guest Houses that seemed horrible in the 70's still look the same. Then there's the characters who run most of the places, they seem to all be trying to keep the stereotype of the eccentric Englishman alive. It's part Kitchen Nightmares, part designed to sell, and all good TV.Ever stayed at a hotel with less-than-satisfactory service, outdated décor, poor quality food, or an uncomfortable bed? Renowned hotelier and author Ruth Watson is The Hotel Inspector, and she's looking to whip Britain's struggling bed-and-breakfast owners and hoteliers into shape.
The Hotel Inspector has an intense eye for detail with her no nonsense methods as she encourages each establishment to ensure the highest standard of quality for the ultimate guest experience. During the inspections, her main objective is to assess the issues in which these establishments are failing. She relentlessly challenges the owners to clean up their act by attacking their filthy rooms, rude employees, and horrible food by trying to bring the hotel up to 5-star quality.
Beware of Mrs. Sparkles, that's all I'm gonna say.
