“The best hotel stay ever”
Reviewed 6 April 2010

Alexander Hotel does just what it says on the box!
It started when we arrived and were greeted with tea and home made shortbread. This also gave the opportunity to meet the other guests.
Our room was very clean, well decorated and spacious. It had all the amenities we needed.
The food was excellent and the table service even better. The lounge and bar was a great meeting place with Julie and Alex joining in the conversation from time to time.
All in all a very enjoyable stay and this hotel has just achieved it's Gold Star Award!! Well deserved.

Upon entering this attractive hotel we were greeted with such a warm welcome with fresh coffee and home made shortbread. We were absolutely stunned when wewere shown our room, it was amazing!! it had been completely revamped along with several other rooms and the standard was just incredible!! We had the privelidge of being in the hotel before a lot of the other guests arrived and was shown the other rooms which had also been revamped and we would have been hardpressed to pick a favourite. ~We were staying in the luxury room and it certainly lived upto its title!! We were also proud to hear that the hotel inspector had been the week prior and awarded thehotel the first gold award in Scarborough!! The hotel certainly deserved it. Our room had a lovely walk in wardrobe and a superb seating area wuith brown leather chairs which was very relaxinhg and good to have an area apart from the bed in which to sit and read and just take in a tea or coffee. Every single thing has been thought out ndown to decor and accessoreis, the shower room was beautiful and screamed out cleanliness and was so spacious, truly wonderful. The location of the hotel is superb and close to all ameniuties especially Peasholme Park and many local attractions. There are many local pubs to which we attended most evening and had a truly wonderful 4 days away!!! There is nothing in this hotethat i could pick fault with, Jule and Alex who run the show are just amazing people, a real pleasure to be around and you certtainly do leave as a friend!! We left today and booked again for a few momths down the line and am already looking forward to it.. Anyone reading ths review i urge you to treat yourself and experience a real taste of Yorkshire!! First Class in every way!!

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody wanting to stay in Scarborough. The hotel has it's own parking which is very rare in Scarborough and plenty of spaces too. The Alexander Hotel is one of the best hotels we have stayed in and the gold award is well deserved. Alex's breakfast is amazing and though we did not stay for an evening meal the other guests raved about his gourmet cooking. Thanks Julie and Alex for making our first trip to Scarborough unforgetable.

The warmth of the welcome was outstanding. I had a very late arrival due to terrible weather conditions on my journey and the understanding shown and welcome received when I got there was fantastic.

Great breakfast. This hotel will be my first port-of-call when returning to Scarborough.

The Alexander should have got the Gold award for their outstanding level of welcome and service. It was like going to see old friends so warm was the welcome. It was good job Scarborough is built on hills as it gave us the opportunity to attempt to walk off the excellent meals Alex so expertly cooked and presented. Our room was very comfortable and the whole hotel beautifully presented.

Thank you Alex and Julie for an excellent stay, we will definitely be recommending the Alexander to all our friends & relatives. Thank you once again.
