I usually stay in hotels for business all across the UK, thought I'd try a B&B for a change. This one was pleasent, clean and roomy although a little dated in terms of decor. The hospitality was excellent and I can't help but feel that most reviews are based on this rather than the facilities, which is a shame as... More

A lovely, clean, tastefully decorated, comfortable with excellent service B&B. They have thought of your every comfort in the bedrooms. Even real coffee with a cafetiere! Now I call that a perfect finish. Thankyou team Alexander. Highly recommend you!

Thank you for your review. If this was a genuine complaint it is a shame the guest did not come and report any problems to us immediately face to face. This would have been rectified instantly. Having seen other reviews that the customer has made, it seems that we have been added to his extensive list of negative reviews. More

Had a lovely weekend stay here at The Alexander. A very warm welcome and the host was extremely helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The family room on the front was plenty big enough, 1 very comfortable double bed and 2 very comfy singles. Lovely and clean and lots of towels. There was a well stocked tea tray in the... More

I stayed here for one night and enjoyed my stay. My room was on the smaller side (single bed) but it had everything I needed - a coffee station, toiletries, a comfy bed and a small tv. The wifi was intermittent but worked most of the time. The hotel was on a main road however there was on street parking.... More

The Gower was full .... but great location for a lovely weekend exploring the region. Nice clean accommodation, good breakfast, and very amenable host.Road side parking nearby quite easy to find and some quirky eateries nearby....didn't want to venture back to Swansea which totally lacked appeal .Would recommend this B n B for sure .

I stayed for one night - between visiting friends on Gower and catching a morning ferry from Swansea Docks. I was warmly welcomed around 22.00 and given the keys for room seven. This small room is on top floor - with a separate bathroom down half a flight of stairs, although there is a washbasin in the room. The hotel... More
