The picturesque bed and breakfast, Billy Andy’s, located in the serene countryside of County Antrim, is set to star in the sixth episode of the 19th season of Channel 5’s The Hotel Inspector. This eagerly awaited episode is scheduled to air on Thursday, May 9th, 2024, at 21:00.

Situated at 66 Browndod Road, Mounthill, near Larne, Billy Andy’s offers a quintessential rural getaway housed within a historic building dating back to the 1800s. Its proximity to the Larne ferry terminal, Belfast, and the scenic Causeway Coastal Route makes it an ideal spot for guests wishing to explore Northern Ireland’s vast natural beauty and historical sites.

In the upcoming episode, hospitality guru Alex Polizzi will be seen providing invaluable advice to the B&B’s proprietors, aimed at elevating the overall guest experience. The programme will delve into the intricacies of managing a B&B and the various challenges these businesses encounter.

In a notable turn of events, the establishment has been renamed to ‘Sixty Six’ since the filming of the episode. This change has sparked interest among fans and followers of the show, raising questions about the reasons behind the rebranding and whether it was suggested by The Hotel Inspector. The upcoming episode is expected to shed light on this transformation.

The episode will not only highlight Ms. Polizzi’s visit but will also feature experiences from select guests who stayed at the B&B, including travel writers and target customers. Among them is Stevie Haughey, founder of the popular travel website Ireland Before You Die.

“Being a part of ‘The Hotel Inspector’ episode at Billy Andy was an honour and a surreal experience,” said Mr. Haughey. “My stay at Billy Andy’s in November 2023 offered me firsthand insight into their exceptional hospitality and the unique character of the site. Meeting Alex Polizzi was a highlight; she’s as charismatic in person as on TV and very approachable. She talked to me about her love for Belfast, her memorable previous visits, and her considerations for future business ventures in the city.”

Mr. Haughey also commented on the B&B’s renaming: “With the episode about to be broadcast and discovering the name change to Sixty Six online, I am intrigued. I’m eager to see if the episode will reveal the full story behind the name change. I can’t wait to watch it!”

This episode will be shown on Channel 5 on Thursday, May 9th 2024, at 21:00.
