For those who know and love Endsleigh, Alex Polizzi was the driving force in its new lease of life when her mother, Olga Polizzi, bought the property in 2004. They had fallen for this stunning corner of West Devon just as Georgina, 6th Duchess of Bedford had some 200 years before. Endsleigh House, as it was known then, was a tired, dilapidated building in much need of an overhaul and it was Alex's energy and expertise that set about renovating, invigorating and transforming the house into the elegant Hotel that is Endsleigh today.

These days Alex Polizzi is busier than ever. Since 2008 she has been filming for Channel 5, The Hotel Inspector, where she visits struggling hotels and offers her expertise and advice. She has also now completed for BBC 2, two series of, Alex Polizzi The Fixer, and, The Fixer Returns, and last Christmas, Alex inspired us with a one off programme called, Alex Polizzi's Christmas Fix. True to her roots and family background, Alex was recently filmed touring Italy, tasting and visiting the many Italian places that are close to her heart and it is rumoured that shortly, she is to head up a new programme on recruiting Chefs.
