Chewton Glen Hotel to appear on Channel 4 TV show on coping with coronavirus pandemic
THE five-star Chewton Glen Hotel is to appear on Channel 4 on Sunday evening – having opened its doors to TV cameras for the first time ever during the coronavirus pandemic.
It is one of three top facilities to feature as part of the Britain’s Most Luxurious Hotels programme, which will show off what happened behind the scenes during the autumn of 2020.
With the hospitality industry in extraordinary turmoil amid Covid-19, the show follows hotel executive director Andrew Stembridge, general manager Andrew Cook and his team as they grapple with the challenges presented by the pandemic.
Access was granted to TV production company Spun Gold – the first time the 72-room Chewton Glen has opened its doors to television cameras.
The site also includes 14 tree-house suites, a nine-hole par three golf course, croquet lawn, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a spa voted the best in Europe, purpose-built cookery school, bakery and informal restaurant opened in association with celebrity chef James Martin.
The programme will be screened on Channel 4 at 8pm. For more information visit channel4.com/programmes/britains-most-luxurious-hotels/on-demand/71637-003
