Alex's mission remains the same for this well-established format - casting fresh and expert eyes over a number of hotels and bringing them up to the impeccably high standards of excellence synonymous with the Forte name. Alex will bring a practical intelligence and fiery Italian temperament to bear on every level of the hotel trade. With her straight-talking and practical advice, Polizzi hopes to turn them into successful and profitable ventures and use the experience gained through her current role as proprietor of the Hotel Endsleigh in Devon (recently voted the best rural retreat in the UK) to advise these ailing businesses. From staffing to menus and from décor to hygiene, Alex will leave no stone unturned in her desire for improvement. Energetic and intense, Alex rolls up her sleeves, puts on her rubber gloves and gets stuck in to help.
