Travel Insider 🔵 YOUR UPDATES TODAY 🔵 The Star in the East Sussex village of Alfriston is a personal project for Alex – and her mother, Olga. The pair have decorated the pub in a mixture of antique, mid-century and modern styles. AmerExperience.com Latest News 🔵
‘I needed to prove to myself that I can still do it,’ says Alex Polizzi, who, after a decade telling hapless hoteliers how to up their game in Channel 5’s The Hotel Inspector, is putting the finishing touches to her new project.
‘And,’ she adds, ‘it was a chance to do something with my mother.’
Few hoteliers have been as influential as Alex’s mother Olga. Tresanton, which opened in St Mawes in 1998, was instrumental in giving Cornwall its high style reputation. And The Endsleigh in Devon, which Alex opened for her mother in 2005, brought significant verve to the country house hotel scene.
