3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Stayed 1 night in one of annex rooms. On entering there is a really strong musty/damp smell, quite overpowering ! In desperate need of refurbishment. Bedding however is crisp and clean. Ample good free parking. Helpful lady host. Superb tasty breakfast but put off by very dated and cluttered breakfast room.

Having just had a new high pressure hot water system fitted there were a few leaks which have now been sorted. All the rooms are being refurbished in during September and October. I'm sorry you don't like the style of my dining room but I do want to keep the more homely feel to the building. I am glad you... More

Very disappointed with the quality and service here for the price paid. Landlady very rude to me and other guests during breakfast. Tourist board rate 4 stars but very wrong in my opinion! My bedside table was a foldaway tv dinner table which was across the bedroom door. I am sure that this will be a fire hazard? Not happy... More

I think the small fold away table you are referring to is actually in the wardrobe to allow you to stand a small suitcase on it if required. It isn't a bedside table. You are of course at liberty to use it for this purpose. I am really sorry if you think I was in any way rude during breakfast.... More

On arrival we were welcomed into the main house. We were disappointed to discover that we were having to pay £50 each per night sharing a room for 3, £10 extra per night than we had expected. We were then told we had to go back out in the pouring rain to get to our room. When we entered our... More

I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay as part of what turned out to be a very noisy group. The rooms in the Stable Cottages will be fully refurbished with new bathrooms, decoration and carpets by the end of October. The addition of a High pressure hot water system to provide power showers did cause a few leaks and... More

I stayed here as part of a large group. The booking was not made by myself, and Me and 2 colleagues were located in the courtyard. From the pictures it looked good for the prices charged compared to other facilities. On arrival check in was straight forward, however on opening our room I was not impressed. The room had a...

All the rooms are being decorated and new carpet during the next couple of months. I have just had a new high pressure hot water system fitted so wasn't going to have the bathrooms redone until the system settles down as I have had a few pipes spring leaks. I most certainly wasn't staying with my Mum merely visiting the... More

If I had to describe a typical English B&B to someone I'd probably describe Alexa House. A cheerfully fastidious landlady Sandra, English cooked breakfasts, and comfortable enough if slightly outdated decor in some aspects. There are some nice details, such as provision of ear buds and cotton wool. The breakfasts here are good quality and with plentiful choice and quantity.... More
