Just returned from another fantastic stay at The Alexander where you are guaranteed a warm welcome from hosts Julie and Alex. What more can be said, Outstanding. My wife and i have stayed with Alex and Julie Many times now over the last 8 years from a couple of days to over a week at a time. The friendliness,kindness, cleanliness and comfort cannot be better. Could have quite easily taken the lovely duvet home with us this time. The rooms are all up to date,modern and extremely comfortable. Every single thing has been thought out down to decor and accessories. The hotel is well placed for quick access to the north bay and a few minutes drive to the town centre. There is ample parking on site and also parking outside the hotel. If you are looking for something very special for a short break or longer you would not beat this in Scarborough.The very high standard at the 'Alexander' is the reason we return time and time again and has made us very wary of staying elsewhere as we know a similar standard would be hard to find.

Room Tip: Phone and book anyone of them, they are all excellent!!!!!

Just returned from another excellent 3 night break at The Alexander, and yet again it didn't disappoint. Whether you are a new visitor or a returning one you will receive a warm welcome from the owners, Julie and Alex. They have worked hard to build the excellent reputation the Alexander has and they have got it just right! The bedrooms are excellent, with comfortable beds,flatscreen televisions, tables and chairs, along with lovely spotlessly clean bathrooms.
As for the food, you won't find better in Scarborough for the price. Breakfasts are excellent, and the evening meals are cooked to perfection by Alex.Well worth giving them a try!
The Alexander is an excellent small hotel, which gives great value for money and in my opinion should be number 1 on Trip Advisor.

We have stayed at the Alexander Hotel many times and have just returned from a lovely 4 night break over the Bank Holiday Weekend as usual we are never disappointed. After a very warm welcome and a pot of freshly made tea from Julie and Alex we are shown to our room which is always immaculate as are all of the rooms (we have stayed in most of them).
Breakfast and evening meals are exceptional all made from fresh local ingredients and cooked to perfection by Alex.
We would highly recommend this Hotel we wouldn't dream of going anywhere else and always look forward to our next visit as the standards never drop.

Visited the Alexander Hotel for a last minute short break over the recent bank holiday weekend. We chose the hotel based on all the excellent reviews it already had and hoped that it would not disappoint......and it didn't!!! This is a superb place to stay,the rooms are immaculate. Our luxury room was huge with a separate sitting area and was beautifully decorated and furnished. The food was delicious, super breakfasts every morning and a brilliant evening meal on Saturday night. The owners Alex and Julie made us feel really welcome throughout our stay. We will certainly return!!!

Just back from three fantastic nights at the Alexander in Scarborough. Fantastic small hotel. Must be the best small hotel in the area. Owners, Julie and Alexander go out of their way to welcome and settle you in. The rooms are immaculate. I do not exaggerate. Best we've stayed in. Then there's the bonus of the food. Apparently Alex is also a trained chef. It shows. Breakfasts were excellent and the dinner we had there absolutely brilliant. Hugely recommendations. We will absolutely, definitely be going back.

Room Tip: We stayed in a luxury room. Well worth the extra.

Having read reviews of this hotel from other subscribers we decided that when we were visiting Scarborough we would try it at see what it was like. Well. we were not disappointed, the room was spotlessly clean and as the advertising said, it was not just for the day one arrives but for the full length of the stay. The breakfast provided was of the highest standard we have experienced (we do cruising which is supposed to be the best) everything was cooked to order and therefore arrived at the table hot which we`ve found is a novelty compared to other establishments and also cooked to perfection by the resident chef. My wife and I have no hesitation in recommending the Alexander to other visitors to Scarborough.
