On arrival Neal and Mike are wowed by the five star self-catering accommodation, complete with hot tubs and lakeside views, but the others think the 'luxury' breakfast hamper is anything but.

Mark and Jan reveal a competitive streak during an afternoon of husky racing, and come dinner Anthony and Cheryle have their business credentials scrutinised. At breakfast Mick and Chris put their hosts under pressure, which has the temperature rising in the kitchen. But it's at feedback when Cheryle and Anthony face picky comments and what they think is a personal attack that leaves them fuming.
The last visit is to The Ivybridge Hotel and Spa, where Mark and Jan Rummery are bringing their hospitality experience in Asia to Wales. On arrival, Cheryle and Anthony are unimpressed to be housed in an annexe, and Mick and Chris dismiss the bathroom as a bodge job. During an afternoon of Chinese cookery, the tensions are palpable as relationships continue to disintegrate. At dinner, things come to a head when Cheryle and Anthony tell it straight and Mick and Chris admit to changing their approach to the competition post reading their feedback. Next morning, the tensions are still simmering and the group are on edge. Come feedback, Mark and Jan are surprised by some of their comments and disappointed that not everyone wants to return.
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 thrash out their issues. No.33 Hunstanton is up first, and hosts Janie and Gemma want to quiz Mark and Jan over their privacy problems. Next, father and son duo Mick and Chris Emanuele from La Tavola Calda want to put Cheryle and Anthony's sleep issues to bed. Cheryle and Anthony Katz from The Lansdowne next want to take Mick and Chris to task over their feedback with dramatic consequences, which lead to Chris admitting they've been game playing. When it comes to The Ivybridge Guest House, Mark and Jan want to smooth the cracks but are left far from happy. The group is close to breaking point as they battle through their issues before the winner is finally announced.
