Series 1 premiered on Thursday 29 September 2005 on Channel 5.

Episode Establishment Airdate Synopsis
1 Nandos/Forget-Me-Not Guest House, Stratford 29 September 2005 Hotelier Ruth Watson meets a married couple who sold their family home and poured all their savings into Nando’s, a six-room B and B in upmarket Stratford-on-Avon. However, things are not going well: Kate and John face fierce competition and despite them working “24/7”, Nando’s is the only B and B in the street not to have an RAC diamond rating.
2 Hanmer Arms, Wrexham County Borough 6 October 2005 Ruth Watson meets Keith and Val Morris, who three and a half years ago bought the Hanmer Arms, a classy 23-bed hotel/pub/restaurant/conference centre in rolling countryside on the border of England and Wales. Family members have invested £1 million of their money in the business, and now they want to see a return.
3 Worlington Hall Hotel, Suffolk 13 October 2005 Ruth Watson meets sisters Sharon and Joy, who have bought Worlington Hall, a Grade 2-listed 16th-century hotel in the Suffolk countryside. However, their lack of previous experience has been cruelly exposed and the place they call the ‘money pit’ is suffering major losses. Its not just their money on the line – their mum has no pension and has invested most of her life savings in the project.

Series 2: 2006[edit]

Series 2 premiered on Thursday 6 July 2006 at 9 pm on Channel 5.

Episode Establishment Airdate Synopsis
1 Saxonia Guest House, Weston-Super-Mare 6 July 2006 Ruth Watson visits a three-diamond, eight-bed guesthouse in Weston-super-Mare run by hoteliers Jon and Sandie Harrap. The hotel is stuck in a time warp with tired décor, a cluttered lounge and tasteless bric-a-brac on every surface. They’ve called in Ruth because they’ve run out of ideas but her firm approach takes them both by surprise.
2 Langtry Manor Hotel, Bournemouth 13 July 2006 Ruth visits Langtry Manor, a three-star hotel in Bournemouth. Originally built by King Edward VII for his mistress, actress Lillie Langtry, it was bought by Pamela Howard 30 years ago and has been run as a hotel by her and her family ever since. The fact that it’s a family business is a strength, but could it also be the reason for some of the challenges it faces?
3 ''Key West Hotel, Newquay 20 July 2006 Ruth visits Key West, which is owned by Brian and Gill Scott. The couple decided to retire to Newquay in Cornwall to live out their twilight years running a small hotel together. Sadly their dream has turned into a nightmare – they’re overrun by rowdy stags and hens that destroy the rooms.
4 ''Sparkles Hotel, Blackpool 27 July 2006 Ruth takes a trip to a children’s themed hotel in Blackpool. It’s the brainchild of owner and manager Sue Ryan, AKA Mrs Sparkle, a former teacher who has spent seven years and more than £1m turning a rundown terraced house into her fantasy hotel. It now boasts a Narnia suite, a 101 Dalmatians suite and a Lost City of Atlantis breakfast room but, despite its prime location near the Pleasure Beach, it is distinctly lacking in guests. “If can’t make a profit this year, I’d better throw in the towel,” admits the larger-than-life Sue.
5 Blossoms Guest House, York 3 August 2006 Guesthouse owner Richard Nunns can’t understand why he repeatedly gets complaints from outraged customers. Can Ruth Watson help him work it out? It doesn’t take Ruth long to identify Richard’s first problem – the unsightly anaglypta wallpaper inside fails to match up to the lovely exterior. “The owners have not spent any money on this whatsoever, as far as I can see,” she says. “It’s as cheap and cheerless as you can get.”
6 Tasburgh House Hotel, Bath 10 August 2006 Ruth Watson visits the award-winning Tasburgh Hotel in Bath in a bid to discover why the establishment has a distinct lack of guests. She meets the B&B's owner Sue, and tries to convince her that no amount of classy decor can make up for the cramped bedrooms full of soft toys, dingy bathrooms, poor presentation and a steep starting price of £110 per night
7 Hanmer Arms, Wrexham County Borough (revisited a year on) 17 August 2006 The Hotel Inspector revisits married couple Keith and Val Morris, who she first met during the first series. Around five years ago, the Morrises bought the Hamner Arms, a classy 23-bed hotel/pub/restaurant/conference centre in rolling countryside on the border of England and Wales, but it was leaking money. Did the couple take her advice on board, and did it work?
8 Worlington Hall Hotel, Suffolk (revisited a year on) 24 August 2006 Successful hotelier Ruth Watson visits a Grade 2-listed 16th-century hotel in the Suffolk countryside. Sisters Joy and Sharon bought this delightful hotel, but their lack of experience meant that it turned into a money pit, eating into their savings and time. On initial inspection, Worlington Hall seemed to have everything going for it. However, on Ruth’s first tour, she found that the problems started at reception.

When Alex arrives at the hotel, her first impression is not encouraging, she is met by an empty noticeboard, poor signage, shabby hanging baskets, and a reception confusingly located behind the bar.

Series 7 (2011)[edit]

Series 7 started on 18 April 2011 on Channel 5. This was believed to be Polizzi's final series, according to a tweet she made on her official Twitter page, thus putting the future of the show in jeopardy. However, it was revealed in September 2011, that The Hotel Inspector would return on 3 October 2011.[1]

The same graphics had been used as in previous series but a reworked new theme tune was adopted. This was the first time in the show history that the theme tune was altered. The show also had a competition advertised during the show breaks. Prizes included trips to the Maldives, a Holiday in a castle in Ireland & a luxury break in Mauritius.
