Alexander...the hotel ought to be called 'Magnet'...that's the effect it has! We've managed to fit in three visits this year - and each time we have left we have looked forward to returning. And the reason, in a nutshell, is that it effortlessly combines all the finesse of a class establishment with all the homeliness of a family inviting friends... More

This was our first stay at the Alexander Hotel and it certainly won't be out last. This is a fantastic B&B in an excellent location, ideally placed for visiting the North Bay. The room was 1st class, everything we could possibly need. Excellent sized room and bed. The breakfasts were out of this world too.

We visited The Alexander early May. The welcome from Julie & Alex was like old friends but still totally professional. The room extremely spacious and exceptionally clean. Our evening meal was cooked by Alex to his usual excellent Standard. Breakfast was outstanding with everything again cooked to perfection. This set us up for a good days walking. The Alexander is...

This was booked as a surprise for my birthday by my hubby. The welcome was warm, the rooms very clean and lovely calming decoration, with an attention to detail you'd expect from the best hotels. The full English breakfast was the best we've had and the added extras wonderful, including special preserves and home made cake. Really couldn't have asked... More

We stayed at the Alexander as we have done for a couple of years. Julie and Alex greeted us with the same never ending smile. The rooms were spotless as always. The beds are really comfortable and you always get a good night’s sleep. Breakfast is always delicious with a great selection of cereals and a beautifully made full English.... More
