Well Worth a Visit
Alexandra hotel or `Alex` as its fondly referred to all over the western county where its located has seen royalties, celebrated personalities and people from all walks of life among its guests. The framed pictures in the lobby and throughout the corridors tell the story of an institution that dates back to the 1860`s.
With ongoing modernization it now boasts indoor and outdoor pools and a Spa as well, but the real hallmark of this hotel is over a century old hospitality and its legendary food reputation to which we among many others would drive over 2 hours on Sundays to catch the 1 oclock buffet lunch.
Comfortable rooms (yet still no keycards installed , but old fashioned keys), and in the spacious bathroom you`ll find the biggest showerhead in the market. But its all down in the restaurant Charlotte where the action is. No matter what your food orientation is, you`ll certainly find something to please the eye and stomach. Here`s a wide range of apetizers, seafood, and meat on display. And for those with a sweet tooth, an impressive stretch of cakes, puddings and ice cream are there to please even the fussy ones.
So if after the spectacular foodie and boozy fun you`re still wondering what to do next? You can either retreat to the Piano bar for a quiet drink, or hit the in-house nightclub which features live bands nightly. Or even take an after dinner walk in the bright Summer nights and explore the beautiful surroundings and see the Strawberry fields in the vicinity of the hotel.
As for me its time to hit the sack, Briksdal Glacier is our next stop tomorrow, but that`s another story.
We`ve had our fair share over the past 15 years as regular guests at `Alex`on our pilgrimage to Briksdal Glacier. I strongly recommend Alexandra Hotel to anyone looking for an exciting stay combined with great service and even greater food experience.
