“Couldn't have asked for more!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

A very warm and welcoming stay at Alexander Lodge, we stayed for two nights with our 2 year old daughter in the top floor family room. The room was lovely, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with a good variety even for our little one! Karen was very inviting and informative and quickly became a friend of my daughters as she then referred to ALexander Lodge as 'Karen's house!' Would definitely recommend!

Hi Sonallad and everyone

Thank you for your really kind words and for taking the time to write them. It was such a pleasure and fun having you all to stay. We are really glad you enjoyed 'Karen's House' (as it was called by your little girl) and it would be lovely to see you all again in the future. Thank you again.
Best wishes

Karen and Andy are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The small details they take care of make the stay very comfortable. Our room was super clean. A travel cot and high chair were available (we took our own cot bedding). A small fridge is available for use in the dining room where baby food could be stored - and fresh milk accessed for tea/coffee in your room. Karen was happy for us to use the dining room to eat take-away and/or feed our 9 month baby at any time during our stay. The breakfasts were great, with a good choice and all freshly made. A big bottle of water was provided in our room everyday and fans/coolers for hot weather. The street is quiet and noise does not travel between rooms. We and our baby had a fantastic sleep each night. It is only a few minutes walk to the beach in one direction and the shops in the other. There are plenty of restaurants, pubs and take-away places very close and it's about 15 minutes walk to Pokesdown station. We would not hesitate to stay with Karen and Andy again.

Room Tip: Room 9 gets a bit in hot weather but a fan and cooler are provided

Another lovely stay at Alexander Lodge Hotel - Karen and Andy are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. I shared the newly decorated top room with my sister and niece. The rooms are decorated to a very high standard, the street was quiet, so we had two good nights' sleep. Breakfast was excellent, I especially enjoyed the fresh fruit salad. We look forward to our next visit.

This was our third visit but we stayed for four nights this time, another wonderful welcome from Karen, large bottle of water in room on arrival, we originally booked a smaller twin room for the four nights but at late notice to Karen I wanted to change to a larger twin room and I have to say I was very pleased when I was informed we could be accommodated for three of the four nights in the larger room, breakfast was excellent as always, again Karen, Andy & the team has done an excellent job & we will be returning to the Alexander Lodge as I do not feel the need to look elsewhere at all.

Alexander lodge in Southbourne is a home from home, Karen the owner was extremely friendly & welcoming from our first contact, nothing was too much trouble. The bedrooms were clean, homely & comfortable. There was plenty of choice for breakfast, which suited myself & 4 children with different tastes, no-one walked away hungry. free wi-fi was useful.The lodge is ideally situated for, places to eat, local shops & the sea. Off street parking was available. Would definitely stay there again.

Excellent place to stay. It was homely and happy. The whole team were fantastic and looked after our every whim. We had a long weekend there and the service, the room and the food were all to an exceptional standard! Will definitely return next time we come down to the area.
