Friendly proprietor, very nice room and lots of tea coffee , bathroom supplies.We had a room at the back- nice and quiet. Lots of... More

Following our last visit in June to collect our daughter from Uni we booked again so that we could return her for her 2nd year. Again what a lovely welcome by the owner and this time we had a room at the back. It was spotless with lots of tea, coffee etc. Breakfast was excellent. This hotel is going to... More

Excellent hotel, very helpful and friendly owners. Situated near shops, restaurants and easy street parking. Well decorated room with good supply of tea & coffee. Large bathroom with bath & separate shower, and a comfortable bed Breakfast was for me fruit & toast, however the fried breakfast looked pretty good. Would stay again

A small and friendly guesthouse offering personal service, comfortable rooms and a lovely breakfast. The owner was very helpful. The guesthouse is situated close to many local amenities and is not far from the city centre

From the booking of the room to our stay the owners could not be more helpful. Our room (No.6) was clean, bright and airy, had a most impressive range of items, from ear buds to filter coffee, and the best array of bathroom products I have seen in a while. The breakfast was fantastic, could to order and nothing was... More

On arrival met by owner who was most welcoming and helpful outlining places to eat, opinions (which transpired to be spot on) on each. The rooms, bedroom and bathroom are filled with a host of helpful things which I am more accustomed to in larger hotels. From the biscuits, ear buds, cotton wool and filter coffee and coffee maker in... More

We have just returned from a weekend away in South Wales, & can honestly say we had a lovely stay at The Alexander. The welcome we received was excellent, very friendly & welcoming. We booked the last room that they had available and were warned that the room was small. We're still trying to work out why! Ok it wasn't... More

Stayed at the Alexander hotel when visiting the Singleton hospital for training on two separate occasions. I found both Heino and Lynn very welcoming. Each time I had a different room which was clean, good décor with crisp white bed linen which smelt gorgeous. The bed was extremely comfortable, good bathroom facilities and the breakfast catered to every taste. There... More

Yes a nice welcome, very pleasing Host, but a vew mishaps which should not have happened. The toilet would not flush, and dripped constantly during the night, my wife was unable to sleep; we did not feel it opportune to call the "owners" in the middle of the night!!! When I mentioned it in the morning " I will check... More

busterSwansea, Owner at The Alexander, responded to this review

We are very sorry that we did not come up to the customers expectations. We have never had a problem with the water temperature, the only thing that we feel could have happened is that the guest did not know how to regulate the temperature on the taps. The toilet is a central button press system and flushes if used... More

Stayed in The Alexander hotel when we visited Swansea University. The hotel was in a good location, about 15-20 minutes walk to the university and the sea front. The check-in was prompt, the room we stayed in was spacious and the decor chic and cute. The bathroom was clean, plenty of amenities and towels. There was tea/coffee making facility, a... More
