My wife and I recently stayed at the Alexandra for a short break and thought it was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room (Hinton) was great. The hotel and Lyme Regis as a whole were very relaxing and an ideal place just to while away the hours. Improved wifi would be great but it was... More

This is our third visit to this very fine hotel. The setting is wonderful with sea views from most points, lovely accommodation with everything thought through and fabulous beds. We sat in our room reading for hours just soaking up the environment. The dinning room is also lovely with an exciting menu. This is not a budget event but ideal... More

Just returned from a lovely four day break at this hotel and fully endorse the positive comments regarding the location, the rooms, the views, the food and the friendliness of the staff, particularly the waiting staff (led by the highly efficient restaurant manager). Just a couple of observations: Please sort out the wifi - really important these days. People rely... More

Certainly not a hotel for those looking for a cheap holiday, but if you want a great location, friendly staff, tremendous food and comfortable rooms with superb views, you can't go wrong with the Alexandra.

We have just spent three nights here, we were on a b/b but ate dinner in the conservatory restaurant twice. The food is excellent although to charge £12 for 3 scallops is a little steep and not that brilliant. We both really did enjoy the food. Our first dinner was wonderful, the staff couldn't do enough for us. The second... More

A memorable two days spent at the Alexandra, although with a genuine history this bright and airy hotel was a pleasure to stay at. The ease to walk into Lyme Regis, or to walk down to the Cobb from the garden via the steps was so easy. The garden was a pleasure to sit in with views of the coast... More

Little doubt that the Alexandra Hotel occupies the prime location in Lyme Regis and had retained a reputation that has been built on elegance and a reputation amongst a certain class. However it's current clientele are varied and I feel the hotel has settled into providing a first rate experience for all tastes. The food is excellent and the service... More

4.5 stars go to the restaurant for fantastic food & wine. The service was pretty good too, although the position of our table prevented excellence. It wasn't cheap but we were very happy with the value for money and, especially when compared with our experience on the sea front the following evening when we paid not much less for an... More

This is a really nice hotel with a spectacular view and wonderful gardens. It's just a little formal for our tastes. We had a great room, really nice breakfast and the staff was very professional. Wish we would have had more time to spend in the garden, the lounge chairs look like you could live in them!
