“A Warm and Friendly Place”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

The proprietors are friendly and very helpful. They bring a warm, friendly and convivial atmosphere, which is infectious. It is not a surprise that they have a large returning clientele, and garner so many 5 star reviews. The food is delicious, with breakfast consisting of home-made cake, fresh fruit, cereal and a full cooked breakfast. The rooms are clean, well appointed and even the small ones are comfortable sized. A truly lovely place, and well worth visiting.

We stayed at this hotel for the second time and it was every bit as good as last year.The owners really do go the extra mile in respect of comfort and customer service.The people we met in the hotel were ,for the most part,returning customers(some year after year)which says a lot.Great food and a good location on the North Bay.

My husband and I have just spent a two night break at the Alexander hotel in Scarborough (we also went last year for the first time). This hotel truly is a five star establishment. Julie and Alex the hotel owners have spared no expense to make their hotel top notch - from the beautiful bedrooms with superb decor, furnishings, soft fluffy towels and bathrobes to the excellent breakfasts each morning. They go that extra mile to make all their guests comfortable and happy. Nothing is too much trouble. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We have stayed here on previous occasions and every stay has been excellent. The bedrooms are immaculately clean, the greeting on arrival is warm and heartfelt, the breakfasts and evening meals, top notch, worthy of any 5* restaurant. Highly recommend.

We have just returned from another magical stay at the Alexander. As usual we were greeted by Julie and her never ending smile. The bedroom was immaculate just as we expected with every need catered for, with extra touches to welcome us back. I had forgotten how comfortable the beds were after our last stay. Post pre dinner drinks we went into the dining room, which was spotless and very welcoming. We had a tremendous 3 course meal which had been carefully prepared by Alex. We were sad to leave and was thinking about hiding in the wardrobe, we hope to return soon.

We have been staying at The Alexander for ten years now and have just returned from our second stay this year in our favourite room which is. modern ,comfortable and spotlessly clean The food is superb,the breakfasts cater for all tastes and dinner is always eagerly anticipated , with Alex cooking new and interesting dishes. Everyone is so friendly and nothing is too much trouble for Julie and Alex as our recent visit showed ,car problems and laptop left in the wardrobe! Looking forward to our next visit in September.

We and 4 of our close friends have had another wonderful stay at the Alexander Hotel. As usual we are greeted by Julie with a smile and a pot of tea and some of their homemade shortbread.
Our bedrooms are as we expect are ready and every need is catered for with special little touches to welcome us back. The rooms are of the highest standard and are spotless.
After a pre dinner drink in the bar area we had a wonderful 3 course dinner which had loveingly been prepared by Alex. All the food used is fresh, top quality and cooked to order. The lounge area where we spend our evening is comfortable and as usual talk of other past visits and talk of the wonderful meals we have had on other visits. We are always sad to leave but know that we have booked to return. Alex and Julie run this hotel with care and attention to detail.
Roll on the the next visit.
