“Some talk of Alexander, and some of…”

But not me! All my talk is of the Alexander and if I didn’t manage to get a booking I wouldn’t know where else to go to find a small hotel of such high quality….

The virtues that I found on my last visit are still there…so what more could I ask?

The food is superb, but then Alex is a trained chef…and the welcome from Julie is so warm and sincere - no qualifications needed for this - it comes as a natural trait…

Anything else?

The rooms are tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. My tip is to go for a luxury room - it’s well worth the extra expense.

This hotel is a gem…the only problem is obvious…the more people who hear about it, the harder it will be to make a booking….

And I so want to go back…

Myself and my husband stayed at Alexander Hotel for 4 nights earlier this month, from the moment we arrived we received great hospitality throughout the stay. The owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, the rooms were extremely high quality and clean. Breakfast was of a very high standard and I particularly liked that you were able to order what you wanted on the day and the choice was extensive ranging from cereals to full cooked breakfast to home made cakes and fruit. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend this hotel. Thank you for a lovely time! Liz and Dave : )

Julie and Alex are as ever excellent hosts and their welcome on arrival was warm and sincere. Our room was tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and provided with a wide range of complimentary drinks and toiletries. This standard of cleanliness is carried through the whole Hotel. Alex is an excellent chef who obviously is passionate about preparing and serving food of the highest standard using quality ingredients, excellent!. This was our third visit to the Alexander and next year will be our fourth, cant wait.

Room Tip: Pick up the phone and talk to Julie.

Revisited last week after an enforced absence. Everything as good as ever- clean bright and shining and that includes Julie & Alex themselves! Welcome and service top level. Alex's superb meals are now further enhanced by the newly refurbished dining room sporting a modern bistro look. All rooms taken late June/early July and as always a high proportion of guests were happy regulars.
Room was HiQual with really comfortable beds and very generous hospitality tray and toileteries.
Easy private parking & handy location for revamped North bay attractions- why stay anywhere else?.

Room Tip: All are fully fitted with modern en-suite facilities that work perfectly!

It was another thoroughly enjoyable stay. Julie and Alex were very welcoming and greeted us with the same never ending smile. Yet again the food was exquisite with Alex putting his own twists on some classical dishes. The rooms were spotless and the beds were really comfortable. Hope to return soon!!

This was my first visit here and having stayed in many hotels over the years, I remain very hard to impress. My room was spotlessly clean, very tastefully decorated and provided complimentary drinks, snacks and toiletries of a range and quality seldom achieved even by much more expensive hotels.

Breakfast was superb, no scrimping on second-rate sausages or fruit juice concentrates here - the ingredients were of top quality and cooked to order and perfection, a selection of fine home made cakes and preserves were also included of the breakfast table. I was disappointed that I wasn't able to eat an evening meal at this hotel, but on experiencing their approach to food at breakfast time, the well thought out menu looks to be extremely promising.

Alex and Julie have clearly set out to attain the highest of standards and with their attention to the details and their friendly and informal nature, it appears that they have achieved exactly that. The quality of this hotel both in terms of the food and accommodation are of a height that is rarely reached in this price range - highly recommended.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 9 and loved the big TV and spacious shower, I was also impressed to see a separate...
