Luke Jacobz has spent his fair share of time travelling the world as an actor and TV presenter. The experience has come in handy for his latest role hosting Channel Seven’s new series Instant Hotel.
Tapping into the popular trend of people renting out their homes for holiday accommodation, the series will see home owners vie for the title of best “instant hotel”.
Guests will travel the country judging the homeowners on everything from their design and decorating choices through to price points.
“I’ve stayed in some of the best and worst hotels in the world,” Luke says. “But I think even the most mediocre hotel rooms can be improved with the right personal touches.
“I’m really keen to see what lengths teams will go to in transforming their homes in order to give other teams a taste of that hotel experience,” the former Home And Away star adds.
Designer Juliet Ashworth will join the series as a judge, whose role will be to score each hotel out of 10.
“Everyone has different ideas on what makes a stylish home but, when you’re charging people to stay there, certain rules must apply,” Juliet says. “I’m looking for cleanliness, comfort and reasonable value for money.”
Instant Hotel will air later this year.
