Channel 4 commissions Escape to the Manor Hotel
Channel 4 has commissioned ‘Escape to the Manor Hotel’ from Freeform Productions.
The series (20x60’) will follow hoteliers and Googlebox stars Steph and Dom Parker, as they meet brave families who have taken the plunge as they plan to open, or already run, their own historic hotels in some of Britain’s most beautiful locations.
Each episode will go behind the scenes of some of Britain’s most stunning historic hotels to meet the couples and families who have put everything on the line to run their own hotel, with Steph and Dom on hand to help them try to turn their dream into a successful reality.
From twin brothers on the brink of renovating a 19th Century relic into an Italian inspired B&B, to a couple who are opening the doors to their 18th century boutique hotel for the very first time. Across the series, we’ll see a whole host of stunning, interesting and quirky buildings as Steph and Dom get their hands dirty helping the owners make a go of their business.
Michelle Heeley, Executive Producer, Freeform Production says “We are thrilled to be making this series for C4. The hoteliers we are meeting are awe inspiring - they are determined to make their dream of running a hotel work. And Steph and Dom are the perfect hosts - of course they are great company but they also have masses of experience from running their own hotel.”
Steph and Dom say “Let’s hope we can inspire some of these new hoteliers! Quick sticks and chin chin!”
David Sayer, Head of Daytime, Channel 4, says “This series will explore the realities of running a hotel in some of the most beautiful locations in the UK. We’re thrilled to be working with Steph and Dom on the series and excited to see the outcome of their journey across the country.”
