Leyland Country House B&B on Channel 4's "Three in a Bed"
Lymington B&B rated highly on hit Channel 4 show
Lymington Bed and Breakfast proprietor Liese Cairnes has won high praise for her business while appearing on the hit Channel 4 show ‘Three in a Bed’ where B&B owners review each other’s accommodation and rate their hospitality.
On the programme, Liese, who runs Leyland Country House in Undershore Road, stayed in a traditional Gypsy caravan B&B in Herefordshire, followed by a B&B near Coventry, before entertaining her fellow contestants in Lymington.
Overall, she finished in second place behind Suzanne and Tony Sweeney who run Swallowfield Country House in Meriden, but ahead of young couple Ollie and Millie who run the Wriggles Brook Gypsy B&B in the Wye Valley.
The guests rated Leyland Country House highly for its cleanliness, amenity, location, service and hospitality, although Tony thought it was somewhat overpriced at up to £110 per night.
However, after taking into account the general price of the area, he and Suzanne happily settled their bill for the full amount.
Millie remarked how she loved being served by Liese’s children: Harley, Saskia, Monty and Liberty, who help to run the luxury B&B at the house, which was built in 1927.
After watching herself on TV Liese said:
“I was very nervous but decided to throw caution to the wind and host a ‘cinema viewing’ in my home for my family and gorgeous friends."
“We all have to be able to laugh at ourselves and I would rather be laughing with all the people who had helped
me than on my own! What a night it was!”
Liese reserved special thanks for Leyland Country House manager Tracey West, adding “You’re a star Tracey!”
