A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show doesn't send particularly strong messsages (either positive or negative), but it does sympathetically highlight the difficult nature of the hotel business and many of the challenges that hotel owners must face in order to successfully run their business.
Positive Role Models
The show's hostess is no-nonsense in her opinions and delivery, but it's clear that she genuinely wants to help the people she's mentoring.
Violence & Scariness
Occasional mild arguments between Watson and hotel owners.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although this British reality series about a high-profile hotelier who tries to help struggling bed and breakfast owners revamp their inns is pretty mild overall, it probably won't appeal to most kids. Expect occasional strong language (like "piss" and "f--k," the latter of which is bleeped); hotel staff and guests are also sometimes shown drinking and smoking.
Is It Any Good?
The series highlights the complicated, demanding nature of the hospitality industry and offers a lot of information about what goes into creating and maintaining a successful hotel and/or bed and breakfast. Watson's careful attention to the endless mundane details of hotel management sometimes makes the show a little tedious. But the quirky, rather clueless hotel owners Watson mentors provide odd moments of entertainment.
While there's some smoking, drinking, and language, overall the show is still pretty mild, and adults who like this sort of thing may find it worth watching. But in the end it doesn't really have anything to offer kids.
