“Pleasant, welcoming hotel in this price bracket”
Reviewed 8 September 2008

We enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again. The owner/managers were very friendly and anxious to please and helped us out with local information when needed.

The hotel is located a little out of town, near Peasholm Park (taxi £5 to the railway station), but this distance is walkable in about 20-25 minutes.

Our twin room was large and spotlessly clean and even had two bathrooms!. A slight negative, my bed was extremely soft and perhaps a little saggy, which didn't help my back, perhaps due for replacement?

We enjoyed the cooked breakfast provided, but I missed my kippers which would have been a nice extra touch which some hotels offer.

I gather the dinner is worth havining, but note you need to book well in advance (10am on the day) or you'll miss out as we did. However, we discovered an excellent restaurant (Cafe Fish) and an over-priced, pretentious and rather average restaurant (Peppers) - avoid.

The hotel now accepts credit cards, to update an earlier review.

The Alexander is a hotel that is just the right size for that feel good factor,situated in a lovely part of Scarborough and within walking distanceor North Bay beach,peasholm parkand on a bus route into Scarborough town centre.
We have visited the Alexander hotel over the last two years for long and short stays. Beautifully decorated,spotlessly clean,food excellant. julie and Alex work hard to ensure everyone enjoys their stay,nothing is too much trouble.We have made friends with a number or guests who,like us, regularly return to the hotel.
a choice of rooms meet everyones requirements.
