Charged with turning around the fortunes of ailing hotel businesses on television, Alex comes from a long line of hoteliers – her mother, Olga Polizzi, is the daughter of Lord Forte and sister to Sir Rocco Forte.
After reading English at Oxford, Alex trained at the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong, worked for Marco Pierre White at the Criterion, and then worked at various Forte properties around the world. In 2005, Alex was instrumental to the opening of Endsleigh.
These days Alex is busier than ever running the newest addition to The Polizzi Collection-The Star in Alfriston.
Dinner with Alex is £85 for three courses including a welcome drink, canapés and coffee. Stay the night with us from £430 based on two people sharing a Classic room with breakfast the following morning and two tickets to Dinner with Alex.
