Gordon_Ramsay[1]Lots of Connecticut people on reality tv these days and soon, a place will be center stage and under the microscope for your viewing pleasure.

Food/hotel know-it-all, celebrity chef and hospitality guru Gordon Ramsay paid one of his “Hotel Hell” visits to the Curtis House Restaurant & Inn in Woodbury over the summer and what he found and fixed will be featured on the Sept. 1 episode of the Fox Network makeover reality show.

Built in 1736 and considered the state’s oldest inn, the Curtis curtis (2)House is owned by the Hardisty family, with siblings TJ Brennan and Chris Hardisty in charge. According to an advance from the show, the brother and sister’s “constant bickering and disrespect for one another is not only tearing their relationship apart, but is bringing the inn down with them.”

The advance notes that “with little upkeep, it is no surprise to Ramsay that he is the only guest at the inn. Find out if Ramsay can patch up their relationship and save this historic establishment.”

Chris Hardisty said he couldn’t talk about what happened during the transformation but its Facebook page (Curtis House Restaurant & Inn) not only boasts pictures of updated rooms and  freshened up common areas, but a revived restaurant as well.

Showtime is 9 p.m.
