Hotel Stephanie makes a return to TV screens

Stephanie Booth gets to work behind the bar of the Wynnstay Arms Hotel

Millionaire hotelier Stephanie Booth returns to the small screen with a new fly-on-the-wall series which follows her move into Wrexham, buying town centre landmark the Wynnstay Arms Hotel.

Stephanie, who owns a chain of the region's well known hotels and restaurants, has already spent £1m in a re-fit on the loss-making business since taking it over in spring.

With 70 rooms it is one of the biggest hotels in north Wales but has been neglected over the years.

So, in an effort to get people to visit the hotel and restaurant again, Stephanie has already held two massive community events outside this summer, closing off the street for live music and entertainment.

"It's safe to say it was a bit of a horror show when we moved in," said Stephanie who runs her business with partner and husband David.

"We did have some reservations when the size of the task became apparent, but it's not my style to ignore a challenge when I see one!"

As well as the hotels, Stephanie runs a business empire which includes make-over shops and an internet mail-order business.
