American style B&B gets Hotel Inspector makeover tonight


An American style B&B in Port Talbot becomes the star of the Hotel Inspector on the Channel 5 show that airs tonight.

Mountain View B&B bills itself as ‘a little piece of the American Southwest in Port Talbot, Wales’, and will tonight be completely reworked by award-winning hotelier Alex Polizzi in what is thought to be one of her toughest tasks yet.

According to Channel 5: “Alex faces one of the biggest and most painful challenges of her career as she encounters a Welsh bed and breakfast in desperate need of help, but run by a couple who are resistant to change.”

Mountain View, rated 3 star by the Welsh Tourist Board, is run by Eli and Lisa. Eli is originally from Colorado in America while Lisa is from Port Talbot. In honour of Eli’s background, the main building has been decorated with a South West American influence.

In tomorrow night’s episode, Polizzi also calls on Merthyr Tydfil’s Mitre Linen to help her transform the B&B.

The company provided new bedding including duvet covers, sheets, pillowcases and valences from their Essentials range.

Lyndsey John, marketing manager for Mitre Linen says: “We were delighted to team up with The Hotel Inspector to help them transform Mountain View B&B. We love helping hoteliers in their refurbishment and can help breathe new life into their establishments.”
