Alex visits Gloucestershire to lend a helping hand to a couple whose hotel needs a new lease of life. The two-star, eleven-bedroom establishment sits in three acres of beautiful Gloucestershire countryside.

10 years ago, the owners moved from the city and bought the Grade Two listed building, hoping that the scenic surroundings would provide a welcome nest egg for retirement. However, meagre profits and a declining occupancy rate have turned their dreams sour. When Alex visits the hostelry, she discovers an establishment with uninspired d├ęcor, run by a couple who don't always agree when it comes to the business.

Alex believes the couple need to put the independence back into their independent hotel. But with a couple reluctant to change, it looks like any improvement plans will involve a bumpy ride...
