I have just come back from a break at the Star at Alfriston which Alex Polizzi owns with her mother Olga Polizzi. Her sister Charlotte is married to Oliver Peyton, an Irish restaurateur. Her father was Italian Marquess Allessandro Polizzi di Sorrentio . Alex presented the TV series The Hotel Inspector.

In August 2021 there was a TV programme called My Hotel Nightmare which was about the renovation of the Star. Parts of the hotel date from the 13th Century and the village of Alfriston is lovely.  There is a lovely tea house called The Badgers a short walk from the hotel. It is a first class tea room. The village is not far from the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs which are spectacular.

The chef of the Star is Tim Kensett, formerly of River Café. The food is excellent, the hotel is tastefully furnished and the staff were efficient and friendly, you couldn’t fault the food, the service or the hotel. While I was there I met Alex Polizzi, she is very down to earth and completely hands on at the Star.
