Ross-on-Wye B&B out of luck on Channel Four's Four in a Bed
A HEREFORDSHIRE couple were not in luck in a TV contest despite great feedback from their competitors.
Kelly and Richard Bailey, owners of Orles Barn Restaurant with Rooms in Ross-on-Wye, came third in the Channel Four programme Four in a Bed broadcast on Friday (June 22) despite getting the highest ever feedback score from fellow bed and breakfast operators.
Four in a Bed has four bed and breakfast owners visiting each other’s properties and then scoring them on a list of hospitality criteria. But the final results are based on what the other participants feel their stay is worth.
“Unfortunately, when it came to the last few moments of the show it was revealed that one of the competing bed and breakfast owners had chosen to underpay our bill by £40, despite them being more than happy with their luxury room and our hospitality and that put us in third place,” said Kelly Bailey.
“We’re not at all disappointed with the result. In fact we’re absolutely delighted to have been chosen to take part. The show has proved to be a great advertisement for the town of Ross-on-Wye and the county of Herefordshire.”
The couple were invited to represent Ross-on-Wye in the show due to their close relationship with local suppliers, butchers and farmers.
