The hotel’s proprietor, Nigel Carpenter, said: “We are delighted to welcome Alex Polizzi back to St Michael’s. We feel very honoured that someone as discerning as her choses to stay with us. She is beautiful and charismatic but also down to earth. She was very kind and encouraging to the staff.”

Polizzi thanked Carpenter upon leaving the hotel, saying: “Thanks to you and all your admirably friendly and efficient staff for making my – all too brief- stay such a pleasurable one.”
