Brand new BBC show Reunion Hotel has landed on our screens, and viewers want to know where to find the hotel it's filmed at. 

The One Show host Alex Jones has been busy over the past few months with a number of TV projects - first Alex Jones: Making Babies, and now another brand-new show, Reunion Hotel. The series sees people meet with others that have changed their life - whether it's a stranger who saved their life, or a best friend from school who they lost touch with many years ago.

The reunions take place is a rather grand Georgian hotel, and just like viewers want to know the filming locations of other popular TV shows such as Gordon Ramsay's Future Food Stars or The Dog Academy, now TV fans are keen to find out where Reunion Hotel is filmed.

Where is Reunion Hotel filmed?

The Reunion Hotel was filmed at Iscoyd Park, a private country house and events venue in Wrexham, and was produced by Caernarfon-based production company Darlun. 

The venue touches the borders of North Wales, Shropshire, and Cheshire and hosts a range of celebrations, from weddings and dinner parties to talks and company events. Iscoyd Park's website describes the country retreat as "a grand Georgian manor house with unique interiors that blend the traditional with the contemporary. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens, traditional farm buildings and acres of stunning parkland".

The venue is also home to its owners: Philip Godsal, his wife Susie and their three children Poppy, Hector and Cecily. Philip took over the running of the house from his father in 2009 and restored the Grade II listed building to make it the traditional countryside events venue it is today. 

Iscoyd Park has been in the Godsal family since 1843, but the main house dates back to 1737. 

Reunion Hotel's presenter, Alex Jones, said in a statement ahead of the latest series: "Being back at Iscoyd Park to watch the first episode of Reunion Hotel was very special. This show is an emotional journey as we bring people together that are connected through an incredible story. Watching it with a room full of people, hearing them laugh and even get emotional, is what the show is all about."

What is Reunion Hotel about?

Reunion Hotel sees people who are Welsh or connected to Wales visit the hotel and reunite with people from their past. Some are seeking forgiveness, others wish to say thank you or just get a chance to say something they never got to say.

Alex Jones and a team of counsellors and hotel staff welcome the guests and provide support for the people on the show.

Reunions in the series include an American woman who meets the grandchild of the people who saved her mother from the Nazis, a 70 year old man who meets his daughter for the first time, and two people who were best friends as teenagers who reconnect, years after losing touch.

BBC's head of commissioning for documentaries, Clare Sillery, said of the show: "Everyone has someone they want to reconnect with in their lives and I can’t wait for people to watch those that have been made possible by Alex and her team. Throughout the series, a real range of reunions take place from absolute tearjerkers to those that will give you goosebumps."
