    View Biography

Celebrity hotelier and the host of the highly acclaimed show, The Hotel Inspector.


Alex Polizzi comes from a long line of hoteliers. She was born to hotel designer Olga Polizzi, CBE, and Count Alessandro Polizzi, an Italian marquess.

She read English at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, trained at the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong and worked for Marco Pierre White.

Once she was well established as a hotelier, Alex took on another project: becoming the host of highly acclaimed show, The Hotel Inspector in 2008. The show sees Polizzi visiting struggling British hotels to try to turn their fortunes around by giving advice and suggestions to the owners/managers, and often undertaking renovation projects on their behalf.

She also fronts the BBC Two series, Alex Polizzi: The Fixer, which focuses on her turning around family businesses, not just hotels. Alex also presented a revisited series called The Fixer Returns in 2013, as well as a Christmas special, which aired in December 2013.

Polizzi launched a new Channel 5 series, Alex Polizzi’s Secret Italy, where she visits either lesser-known places within Italy or well-known towns and cities and, using local connections, shows areas that tourists would not ordinarily experience.

After mastering television, she went on to publish her first book, Alex Polizzi’s Little Black Book of Hotels, sharing her advice on how to enjoy the very best hotels.

In October 2015 Channel 5 ordered a new show, Alex Polizzi’s Italian Islands, a spin-off of Alex Polizzi’s Secret Italy.
