Four of us (two couples) stayed at the Alexandra Hotel for three nights. We had a wonderful stay! First, the location of the hotel was perfect. It is walking distance into town (Lyme Regis) and all of the great restaurants. The hotel has an amazing view of the water and is close to the bus stop for Jurassic Coast bus and close to hiking trails along the coast. We found that there was no need to have a car while staying at this hotel. Second, the service--including hotel, bar, and restaurant service--was friendly and immpecable. The food at the restaurant was very good - and the menu seemed to change daily. Third, the hotel itself and the rooms were lovely. There is a view of the lawn (with comfy lounge chairs) and water from almost every public space in the hotel (lounge, bar, sun room, restaurant). The hotel is decorated in a charming "English cottage" style, but the rooms were surprisingly modern and comfortable. We left our window open every night to fall asleep to the sound of the waves. It was a wonderful weekend trip made even better by staying at this hotel.
