We stayed here recently on a coach holiday. In an excellent position on the seafront.
Our room was on the side and had a partial sea view. The rooms are in great need of refurbishment. Creeky floor-boards, old sash windows, tired mattress and a bathroom from several decades ago!
The meals were ok, in fact breakfast was pretty good but we often got the feeling that the hotel was cost-cutting at meal times wherever possible. At the expense of customer satisfaction.
Having stayed at similar types of hotels that cater for the coach holiday market I'd have to say the Alexander falls short in quite a few areas.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't an unpleasant stay, just that we expected better.
