Four in a Bed is a British reality television game show that has been airing on Channel 4 since 22 November 2010. The show involves four B&B owners, who take turns to stay with one another - and pay what they consider fair for their stay. The winner is the establishment named best value for money.
The second visit is to The Cardinal's Hat in Worcester where owner Nigel Smith, who has over 30 years of experience in hospitality, likes the finer things in life. On arrival the guests are taken back by the character and quirky nature of the rooms and Mark and Jo are concerned by the condition of the bedding. During an afternoon of Morris Dancing, there's a clash, and at dinner Nigel comes under fire when Mark throws in a curve ball question about housekeeping. There's a split at breakfast as Lucinda and Diane dine in their room, while downstairs there are stern thoughts from Nigel at feedback.
For the third visit this week the group head to Cledan Valley in Mid Wales, where husband and wife duo Russ and Karen Colman, hope their glamping site will win over their rivals. Nigel embraces the experience in his shepherds hut, whereas Mark and Jo in their yurt have some concerns about their breakfast storage. Come breakfast, which is a cook it yourself affair, Mark and Jo host the other guests while Karen and Russ have breakfast at home. Some harsh comments at feedback leave Karen and Russ fuming and wanting answers.
The final visit is to Springfield House in Instow, Devon, where Lucinda Renshaw who is joined in the competition by friend Diane Passmore, transformed this home in to a B&B eight years ago. On arrival, Nigel soaks up the luxury; Karen and Russ get comfy, and Mark and Jo have the run of the top floor apartment, but things take a turn when Mark and Jo realise they don't have a lock on their door. Discussions at dinner turn to payment as some owners give hints that they aren't happy with comments they've received. When it's time for feedback, there are some home truths for Lucinda.
It's the final day of the competition and the B&B owners are meeting for the last time to find out what they've been paid and to settle some scores. The Cimon is first, and hosts Mark and Jo want to question Karen and Russ about their breakfast feedback. Next, Nigel from The Cardinal's Hat wants clarity on some cleaning and hygiene comments made by Mark and Jo. Russ and Karen from Cledan Valley are third and are keen to put Mark and Jo straight. Finally, it's Springfield House owner Lucinda and her friend Diane who want to put two of the guests at ease, but it's the payments where true feelings are expressed. There are tantrums and bitter rebukes before the winner is finally announced.
The competition starts in Huddersfield at The Edge Accommodation, owned by John Whitworth, who's hoping to win over his guests with his unique style and personality. On arrival, Sally and Teresa are floored with some of John's decoration. At dinner the guests sink their teeth into John's style, but it's the revelation of where the windows and doors lead to that leaves some of the guests feeling uneasy. At breakfast, a pre-ordered breakfast fails to deliver for Phil and leaves one guest expecting a curtain call. At feedback, John is less than impressed with some of his comments and thinks one guest is out to get him.
The second visit is to Darwin Lake Holiday Village in Matlock, Derbyshire, managed by best friends Sally McAnulty and Teresa Shirley who pride themselves on their exclusive village feel. On arrival, the luxurious cottages impress everyone but John, who finds the place distinctively bland compared to his establishment. That afternoon, the guests embark on an afternoon of traditional sports as they partake in a village sports day but come results, John calls the girls out for cheating. At dinner John's not happy finding out he's supposed to be cooking his own breakfast in the morning and the girls bring up John's earlier name calling, which results in fireworks at the table. Come breakfast, Sally and Teresa are expecting less than positive feedback from John, and a disagreement over the quality of the produce leaves the other guests feeling like no one can stand in John's way.
For the third visit this week the group head to Sands Resort Hotel and Spa in Newquay, Cornwall, where father and son team Nicholas and Tom Malcolm pride themselves on the vast facilities they have on offer. On arrival John is in a lather when he can't find any bubble bath, Phil isn't awash with the low shower head and Sally and Teresa are questioning the cost. That afternoon the guests are led down the garden path and have a race around their on-site maze, but John is soon seeing red. Come breakfast after a good night's sleep, John lets Phil know what he thinks of him and causes silence around the table.
The final visit is to Oak Tree Lane Yurt Site in Bratton Clovelly, Devon, where owner Phil Gilbert is taking things back to basics. On arrival, the guests are wowed by the traditional Mongolian yurts but John's left feeling cut off after learning there is no power. During an afternoon of raft building, Sally and Teresa struggle to work harmoniously with John, leaving host Phil to intervene. Yet come dinner, Sally and Teresa are let off lightly, after Nicholas decides to give John some home truths. At breakfast, tension continues to rise between Nicholas and John, and John manages to shock all the guests with his judgement of Phil's yurt site.
It's the final day of the competition and the B&B owners are meeting for the last time to find out what they've been paid and to settle some scores. The Edge Accommodation is first and host John wants to shut the door on some criticism. Next, Sally and Teresa want to challenge John over his comments on their hosting skills. Nicholas and Tom are third and keen to learn why their facilities didn't impress the competition. Finally, it's Oak Tree Lane and owner Phil who wants to tackle why his place has been described as a prison. There are tears, name calling and bitter rebukes as payments are revealed and the winner announced.
The competition kicks off at Church Street Cobbles in Macclesfield where self-confessed foodie Debbie Quinn and housekeeper, cook and cleaner Isobel Reisen recently opened a B&B above a barber shop. On arrival John and Joy from the Vic Bikers Pub in Coalville are amazed by the high standard of cleaning, but Steve Littley and Verity Charles from The Cranberries Hideaway in Devon are less than impressed with their bathroom. During an afternoon of foraging in the woods, Debbie and Isobel's competitive edge comes out but Arun and his sister Rashmi from the Mehfil hotel in Southall show off their skills. With high expectations at breakfast, Debbie's locally sourced produce comes under fire from Steve and Verity and at feedback their comments are hard to swallow.
The second visit is to rock and roll venue The Vic Bikers pub in Leicestershire where siblings John and Joy take a more laid-back approach to running the business. Upon room inspection Steve and Verity are lost for words. Nostalgia kicks in for Debbie and Isobel, although they don't have the same feelings for the shared bathroom. Following an afternoon spent on John's bus tour of the local area, the tension between Debbie and Isobel and Steve and Verity is on the rise after critical feedback. The next morning at breakfast, John's simple and straightforward approach is a huge hit for some of the guests, but the waste becomes an issue for Debbie. At feedback, John and Joy are suspicious of game playing from some of the guests.
For the third visit of the week the B&Bers head to The Cranberries Hideaway in Devon, where owner Steve and his partner Verity hope the luxury touches will win over their guests. Still upset from their feedback, Debbie and Isobel arrive ready to get stuck into room inspections and an unusual light fixture catches their eye. An afternoon of blindfold driving and team work gives light relief to the tension that is still building between Debbie and Isobel and hosts Steve and Verity. At feedback, the hosts are lost for words with Debbie and Isobel's comments which leaves them shocked and suspicious.
For the final visit of the week the B&Bers head to the Mehfil Hotel in Southall, London, where spiritual host Arun and his sister Rashmi are hoping to bring some Indian Hospitality to the competition. Upon arrival, everyone is impressed, but some find that corners have been cut with cleaning. The afternoon is filled with some lively Bollywood dancing which thaws the chill in the air between Debbie and Isobel and Steve and Verity. At feedback the hosts are overcome with emotion when reading some of the comments.
It's the final day of the competition and the B&B owners are meeting for one last time to find out what they have been paid and settle some scores. Church Street Cobbles are first up and Debbie and Isobel are keen to get to the bottom of some of the cleaning comments from Steve and Verity. Next, it's John and Joy of The Vic Bikers Pub who are keen to confront their critics. Steve and Verity of The Cranberries Hideaway tackle Debbie and Isobel for answers on some of their comments about their cleaning standards. There are arguments and accusations as the payments are revealed and the winner is announced.
