7:30pm Wednesday, November 24 on TV One

New local series, Hotel SOS visits hotels up and down the country in dire need of help and sends in the Hotel SOS team, Frances “Frankie” Mahoney and Simon Shreeve, to turn them into successes.

Suffering from empty rooms, deep fried dining and dodgy d�cor, the Hicks Bay Motel on the North Island’s East Cape is in desperate need of attention. Enter the Hotel SOS team who are on hand to turn things around – but are the owners ready to listen?

Frankie Mahoney has over 15 years hospitality experience, successfully owning and running a number of top end Auckland bars. Leaving the bar scene behind her after the birth of her child, she decided to focus that industry knowledge by forming her own company to run events, functions and conferences. More recently, Frankie has been appointed the Koru Lounge Manager for Air New Zealand.

Simon Shreeve brings many years of business management experience to the Hotel SOS team – both locally and in the UK. With a strong interest in investment property, since arriving in New Zealand Simon has launched his own business focusing on interior design and home staging.
