“Good Quality Accommodation”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Situated in a good location close the the Open Air Theatre and Peasholme Park at the North Bay. We stayed for two nights in a deluxe twin. The room was small but had en-suite shower room and I would rate cleanliness as second to none. There were nice touches such as chocolates, bottled water and robes in the room. We were welcomed with a pot of coffee and home-made shortbread which was very nice. Breakfast was also very good and so was the service. One needs to be aware that this accommodation is located on a busy main road with heavy traffic throughout the day and night. Even with windows closed our sleep quality was severely affected and we have returned home feeling very tired. Although the windows are double glazed I would suggest they need some secondary glazing and some sound-proofing to the internal walls as we could hear everything from guests in both adjoining rooms and above us.

Very friendly and welcoming.
Spotless clean bedrooms and all public areas.
Delicious breakfast. Great choice, juices, cereals, fruit, preserves, lovely homemade touches, plus the cooked breakfast, excellent.
Excellent, comfortable friendly bar.
We were lucky as the weather was kind, very warm, we asked for a fan for our bedroom so we didnt have to sleep with the window open, this was provided immediately.
Ideal location, handy for beach, Peasholm park etc.
Would not hesitate to recommend, we will definitely book to stay here again.

It was a pleasure to meet you both, I think Dave's favourite was the trio of local sausages with Alex's rich onion gravy! Hope to see you both again.

When any establishment constantly achieves glowing accolades then suddenly one or two dodgey reports creep in it can send alarm bells ringing, don't let any such comments put you off visiting the gem of a place I discovered last week. My good lady and myself enjoyed a splendid short stay at The Alexander Hotel on Scarborough's north side. What a splendid experience it was too, the room was very nice indeed, excellent bathroom too, the whole decor was first class with no 'cheap' paint jobs and dodgy joinery ventures which sadly can happen. Breakfast was just right, served by a chirpy Julie and her team while Alex beavered away in the kitchen. The evening meal was simply splendid and certainly not a run of the mill offering, it's quality defied the hotel's reasonable prices. But it was the friendliness of this hard working couple (plus helpers) which shone through and demonstrated just why you should make a note of their hotel if being near to the sea, off road parking, excellent food and cosy bar are on your list of holiday requirements. We will return.

We have just enjoyed another excellent break at the Alexander. As usual, our room was great with lovely décor. Our bed was very comfortable and we had a superb amount of storage space for all our clutter. The bathroom was, as always, spotlessly clean with a good, powerful shower, very welcome with the current heatwave! Breakfast at the Alexander is always a treat; there is always a lovely warm atmosphere from our hosts; the food was fresh and perfectly cooked and Julie's great granola is irresistible. Julie and Alex always make us feel very welcome; they always enthuse us with their delightful approach to their work and nothing is too much trouble for them. It is so nice to find somewhere to stay which is for adults only. We can't wait to return next month to our 'home from home'.

my husband and i have just returned from a three night stay at the Alexander Hotel.The proprietors Alex and Julie take great pride and joy in making all their clients visits as perfect as possible The hotel is beautiful and clean food is excellent and cooked to a very high standard which makes you want to return year after year We stayed in a luxury room at the front of the hotel facing the main road due to the hot weather we left the windows open at night and slept well.Once again thankyou Alex Julie and Aaron for a perfect stay.
