This Autumn Lord Sugar and his candidates descended on Stoke Park, for a special task on BBC 1’s new series of The Apprentice.
After an exciting entrance that was reminiscent of our Bond heritage, Lord Sugar tasked the candidates with a very important challenge. Each team was entrusted with an empty room in our splendid Mansion, which they had to transform into a luxury hotel room in just forty-eight hours.
The stakes were high, as our hotel holds the highest AA rating of 5 Red Stars, which is only awarded to a select number of hotels for exceptional service, facilities and experience.
Under the watchful eye of Lord Sugar’s advisors, drama broke out amongst the girls, as paintbrushes and personalities clashed under the pressure. The boys, meanwhile, found themselves up against the clock, losing control of their costs and their colours!
At the end of the task, the teams pitched their designs to our very own General Manager, Giammario, who gave his expert opinion to Lord Sugar, before another candidate bid farewell to the infamous boardroom.
