“Fantastic on all counts.”
Reviewed 29 March 2009

This was our forth visit to the Alexander in the past twelve months. Each time has been the most pleasant experience you could wish for. Julie and Alex treat you like friends. The food is the best we have tasted ANYWHERE. The rooms have just been upgraded again and are kept immaculate.
Have planned two more visits this year.
What more can we say.

We have been going to The Alexander for a few years and are always pleased to return to their warm hospitality. The whole place is always spotlessly clean and the food and service excellent. The location is good for the attractive North Bay side of Scarborough and you can walk to theatres, sea front and town centre comfortably. The rooms are comfortable - the food is always outstanding and served to a high standard. We often like to try diffrerent places to stay however we are always delighted to return to The Alexander.

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.
