The actor and TV presenter will lead the new series, Instant Hotel which will see home owners compete for the title of best ‘instant hotel’.
In a similar style to My Kitchen Rules, teams will travel the country to stay in the instant hotels created by other contestants.
“I’ve stayed in some of the best and worst hotels in the world,” says Luke who recently returned from Los Angeles for the hosting gig. “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. And it’s going to be great to be a fly-on-the-wall when personal taste is not to everyone’s taste!”
The show will be judged by leading interiors and design expert Juliet Ashworth who will score each hotel out of 10.
Ashworth is an award-winning designer and former editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine who has worked on over 100 projects across Australia and Asia.
She is now partner and creative director of an internationally acclaimed design company specialising in luxury hotels and resorts.
“I’ve stayed in a number of homestay properties around the world - some fantastic and some not so fantastic - so I think this is a great opportunity to show people who are wanting to rent out their own home, what works and what doesn’t!
“Everyone has different ideas on what makes a stylish home but, when you’re charging people to stay there, certain rules must apply. I’m looking for cleanliness, comfort and reasonable value for money.”
Instant Hotel is created by Seven Productions and will screen on Channel Seven in 2017.
