Channel 4 triumph for Sands Resort


The owners of a north Cornwall resort hotel are the winners of the popular TV Show ‘Four in a Bed’.

The programme sees four accommodation providers take turns to stay with one another and pay what they consider fair, based on criteria such as cleanliness, food and value for money.

Nicholas and Tom Malcolm of Sands Resort Hotel in Porth were delighted to get the top score on the Channel 4 programme which was broadcast last week.

Nicholas Malcolm, who has owned Sands Resort Hotel since 1980, said: “There is always a risk in entering a reality show, but I had the confidence that my son and staff could succeed on this programme.

“Tom and I really enjoyed our time filming. Despite a fortnight filming the crew ensured we spent most of the time laughing. Our only negative moment was when we had to wear pink and orange headbands for the village games.

“The other contestants were either great fun or in the case of one, a bit challenging, but a bit of conflict makes good reality TV I’m told.”
