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.
It's the start of a new series as four proud B&B owners do battle to be named best value for money. The competition kicks off at Penwinnick House in St Austell, Cornwall, which has been run for the last 15 years by lawyer Tim Styles. On arrival, Alison Smallman and Colin Dickenson from Hawthorn House in Witney are not blown away by Tim's design choices. However, it is a lumpy mattress that upsets Tudor Hopkins, from The White Hart Hotel in Wells, who is being joined in the competition by his colleague Felicity Andrews. Husband and wife team Julian and Paula Francis from Barton Gate Farm in Devon, also have a restless night. At breakfast, Tim fails to hit the mark with all his guests questioning the quality of produce and the portion sizes. But when it comes to reading his reviews, Tim's left devastated by his scores and deflated that two of his guests won't be returning.
The second visit is to Barton Gate Farm in Holsworthy, owned by husband and wife team Julian and Paula Francis. Having swapped Luton for Devon three years ago, they've spent 18 months converting the old stables into brightly coloured accommodation and opened for business just four weeks ago. On arrival, Tim is disappointed with the finish, while Alison and Colin think the bling dÚcor leaves a lot to be desired. But Tudor and Felicity give the bedding the thumbs up. At dinner the tension mounts as some of the guests share their views on the decoration and come breakfast even Paula's 'gut buster' fails to lift the mood. But it's at feedback when the hosts suspect foul play when Tim's feedback is far from positive.
For the third visit the B&Bers head to Hawthorn House in Witney, where 'make do and mend' host Alison Smallman, helped by friend and neighbour Colin Dickenson, hopes her family home B&B wows the crowd. As Julian and Paula arrive they are still fuming over their feedback from Tim, and Tudor and Felicity find the bathroom a tight squeeze. Tensions simmer during an afternoon of up-cycling old china, which is not helped by competitive Tim winning the challenge. Over dinner Tudor tries to lighten the mood by sharing celebrity stories from his time running five-star hotels, but instead succeeds in making the others more wary. At breakfast Alison is tripped up by not offering fried bread - and her portion sizes come under fire. But it's the feedback that leaves the hosts wanting answers.
Finishing off the competition is The White Hart Hotel in Wells, owned by Tudor Hopkins, who is joined by his deputy manager, Felicity Andrews. Throughout the week, Tudor has revealed just how much experience he has working in high-end hotels dealing with demanding celebs, so all the guests have high expectations. Now he has to deliver. Alison, Colin, Paula and Julian are initially impressed by their rooms, but Tim is not won over by Tudor's charm offensive and finds plenty to criticise. Breakfast is cooked by Tudor's Michelin-starred chef, but even so errors are made and some of the guests are unforgiving. Come feedback Tim's comments has Tudor suspecting that game play is afoot.
It's the final day in 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. Penwinnick House is first and Tim Styles wants to give Julian and Paula a dusting down and challenges Tudor on his sleepless night. Next, Julian and Paula Francis from Barton Gate Farm take on Tim who they suspect of game playing. Third hosts, Alison Smallman and Colin Dickenson, want Julian and Paula to explain the 'dangers' they found at Hawthorn House. Finally it's the turn of the White Hart Hotel where experienced hotelier Tudor Hopkins, along with his assistant manager Felicity Andrews, can't fathom why Tim had such a tepid bathroom experience. There are tensions bubbling and recriminations flying before the payments are revealed and the winner announced.
The week begins at The Five Bells near Dover, where manager Shelley Parnell and her competitive mum Linda Yates, hope their bargain priced B&B will win the day. Paddle boarding in the English Channel reveals a competitive side, and the whole group realise everyone is out to win.

But it is Steve and Lesley's feedback that has Linda and Shelley riled up and vowing for revenge.
The second visit is to The Thomas Paine Hotel in Thetford, where hotelier of 30 years Gez Chetal aims high with his elegant brand of service. During room tours, Sarah and Chris find a saucy book in the bedside draw that is deemed totally inappropriate, and competitive spirits are unleashed during a Home Guard training exercise. At dinner, divisions continue, but it is his feedback that leaves Gez thinking not all the competitors are playing fair.
For the third visit, the competition moves to Tenbury Wells and the Rose and Crown, where hosts Chris and Sarah Whitehead hope their industrial factory neighbour won't detract from the charms of their historic pub.

Come feedback the falling scores and negative comments leave Chris and Sarah floored.
The last B&B in the week's competition is Woodlands Guest House in Exmoor, owned by fitness fanatic Lesley Hawker and her husband Steve. But revenge is in the air for Shelley and Linda who are still stewing over their feedback, and during an afternoon of Nordic walking the group divisions deepen.

But Alison and Lynda face some tough feedback over facilities.

Their dream is to provide boutique on a budget, but they only have eight months of experience, and B&B veterans Alison and Lynda are quick to find fault. During an afternoon of decorating gingerbread houses, Pok U and Nigel are accused of trying to bribe the hosts, and as the concept of boutique is shot down over dinner, simmering tensions threaten to boil over. In the morning, Kev and Tor wonder whether anyone can challenge professional chef Andrew's breakfast spread, but Andrew and James struggle with some of their feedback.
Nigel and Pok U Regan cultivate an east-meets-west atmosphere at their B&B and Cantonese restaurant, the Bingham Townhouse in Nottinghamshire. Their guests aren't all happy when they arrive, with Andrew and James unsure about sleeping in single beds. Later, Kev and Tor's focus and meditation skills are tested when the group are challenged with an archery competition. Alison and Lynda are staggered when they find out that Nigel bought the B&B on a whim, and have a bad taste in their mouths when he calls them 'sweet and sour'.

Forest glampers Charles and Lisa couldn't feel more at home in their historic wood-panelled room but for Fiona and James it's a décor disaster. The group are pitted against each other during an afternoon of dry stone wall building, but there's discontent that ex-brickie Billy has an unfair advantage. Breakfast is a buffet affair and the absent hosts get a shock when the group don't hold back on their gripes.
For the third visit the group head to yurt glamp-site, Forest Garden Shovelstrode in East Sussex, where hosts Charles and Lisa Hooper hope the B&Bers buy into their woodland retreat. Having camped in Mongolia and Nepal, Annie and James are completely in their element in contrast to Fiona and James who are only happy when they have all the mod cons. Charles runs a group woodwork class, but there are accusations of cheating among the pairs. Over dinner Charles and Lisa are interrogated by James over their premium price tag and are left having to justify their business model. In the morning, James has extra cause for complaint after a cold and damp night in his yurt, and a sceptical Billy and Debbie question the extra breakfast charge.
The final visit is to The Derby Manor Hotel and Restaurant run by mother and son team Fiona and James Milligan who opened their doors eight months ago after a million pound refurbishment. With a red carpet on arrival and over 6000 hand glued diamante studs on the walls, the décor instantly gets tongues wagging, but some guests have a muted reaction comparing it to Dubai. The group get a taste of life in the fast lane when James lets them take the hotel's fleet of premium hire cars out for a spin and later, during a remote control car race, there is some unexpected behaviour from one of the guests. Fiona and James are confidently expecting high scores at feedback but have to confront the fact that not all the group are keen 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 settle some scores. The Shoes is up first and hosts Billy Gowland and his partner Debbie Nelson find out if their budget rooms have proved too basic for the group. Next, James Moffat and his partner Annie Larner from Biggin Hall Hotel want to clear up their issues with Billy and Debbie. As the third hosts, Charles and Lisa Hooper from yurt glamp-site Forest Garden Shovelstrode confront their low scores from James. When it comes to final hosts, Fiona and James from the Derby Manor Hotel and Restaurant make accusations of nitpicking and double standards. Tensions are high and home truths are spoken before the winner is announced.
The competition starts in Stratford upon Avon at The Water's Edge Guest House where owner Julie Allison and friend Gerry Crabtree hope their luxurious approach will win the day. On arrival, Ross Williams and Kath Caple, who run the Kilpeck Inn in Herefordshire, are immediately shocked by the themed rooms. During an afternoon canoe racing on the river, Gill and Mick Jennings from The Ivanhoe in Bridlington are left sinking. At breakfast, tensions mount as Michael Crane and Jai Bennison from The Fox Inn in Guisborough think one competitor's criticism is unreasonable.
The second visit is to the Kilpeck Inn in Herefordshire where head chef Ross Williams and front of house manager Kath Capel consider no detail too small. Following their feedback, previous hosts Julie and Gerry have an axe to grind; lovers of all things clean, Mick and Gill, find their room less than impressive; and the dead flies in Michael and Jai's room leave them dropping marks. At dinner tensions mount as Ross and Kath are given a grilling, but it's Julie's off-menu ordering at breakfast that sends the hosts into a spin. Come feedback, Ross and Kath are shocked by some of their scores and think that one guest in particular was out for revenge.
The third stop is The Fox Inn in Guisborough, North Yorkshire, where young hosts Michael Crane and Jai Bennison are determined to impress their guests with their straight-forward northern B&B. On arrival, fellow Yorkshire couple, Mick and Gill, are impressed by the cleanliness and price, and Julie and Gerry flip a coin to see who gets the double bed. The group compete in a sumo wrestling match and an eager Michael is determined to be top dog. At breakfast, Michael's keen to impress but a serious blunder could cost him the competition.
The final visit is to Ivanhoe Guest House in Bridlington where Mick and Gill Jennings think their plain and simple approach will win the day. They pride themselves on cleanliness and are prepared to be put to the test, but following their tough criticism Michael is quick to find dust. During an afternoon racing to make ice creams, Ross and Kath reveal their competitive streak but it's Julie and Gerry who get more than they bargained for. At dinner, tensions simmer between Mick and Michael and come breakfast Michael makes some serious allegations about the food.
It's the final day in the competition and the B&B owners are meeting for the last time to settle some scores. The Water's Edge is first and host Julie wants answers from Ross following his breakfast comments. Next, Ross and Kath from The Kilpeck Inn confront Julie and Gerry's low hosting score, and accusations of tit-for-tat game playing start to fly. Third are Michael and Jai from The Fox Inn, where they have some explaining to do about their breakfast. When it comes to Ivanhoe Guest House, Mick and Gill want an explanation from Michael over his allegations of lying. There's tension in the air and tough words at the table before the winner is revealed.

For the third visit the group head to Langside Bed and Breakfast in Fenwick, Scotland, where high rolling, super clean hosts Debbie and Jim hope their business will wow the crowd.
The final visit is to the historic The Tushielaw Inn in Selkirk, Scotland, opened by Rab and Gail Forbes six months ago. Gail and Rab try to build bridges, but things take a downward turn.
