The unique reality show based on a contest between hotels gripped the fans. The producers approved Instant Hotel Season 2 soon after the first season’s premiere. It is an Australian reality show of The Seven network. Fans witnessed the excitement this show brings, and are now looking forward to the sequel. It is also an opportunity for the hotel owners to feature on national television and have their claim to fame.
The show highlights competition between houses turned hotels and its owners regarding the quality of their place. A judge is present to rate the accommodation out of ten on different parameters like location, value for money, quality of sleep. Also, the owners can fetch points from their guests, which will add up to the final score. There are two elimination rounds and a grand finale to decide the winner.
