I booked this hotel to stay over for one night in July but due to unforeseen circumstances I had to cancel. I did this via email and gave well over the appropriate notice required. I asked for confirmation of cancellation but did not receive one so I sent another email Unfortunately due to commitments I did not follow this email... More

busterSwansea, Owner at The Alexander, responded to this review

The correct cancellation procedure was not followed. Under our terms and conditions 24 hour notification is required. We did not receive any cancellation e.mail from this guest. If the guest had sent a cancellation e.mail twice as stated and required a cancellation confirmation a telephone call would have avoided any confusion and charge. More

I only stayed here for two nights but at the end of my stay I wished I could prolongue it. The hotel is charming and the owner is exceptionally friendly. He advised me on the quickest way to Singleton Park and also shared with me a very interesting family history that I enjoyed listening to. Will certainly return as soon... More

I stayed here for one night in July after being invited to attend a wedding in the mumbles. After an extremely stressful car journey (traffic argh!) I arrived at the hotel with 10 minutes to spare (nightmare)! Despite my room not being ready (as previously requested via telephone and confirmed on my online booking form!) I was allowed in it...

We were greeted with a very warm welcome by the owner and were pleasantly surprised by the little touches which included chocolates on our nicely folded towels, a selection of teas and coffee and a number of toiletries. Breakfast in the morning was very impressive and of a high quality, all needs were catered for.

I was in Swansea to visit a relative in hospital so the location of the Alexander within walking dustance of the Singleton was ideal. Its a Victorian House in the midst of a student area with plenty of flats in the area. There is loads of free street parking in the area which was a plus. I had booked for... More

I had the good fortune to stay here during the recent inaugural Ukulele Festival of Wales. I arrived a little earlier than planned but this was no issue. I was soon shown to my room, which was already prepared for my three night stay. As a solo traveller, my room had everything I could have needed. There were some lovely... More

A lovely hotel, friendly staff who couldn't be more helpful, spotlessly clean, delicious breakfast. Ideal location. Rooms ensure, on site bar, free Wifi, tea and coffee making facilities in the room and toiletries provided. Would definitely recommend. Reasonably priced as well.

The couple running this B&B were fantastic. They could not have been more helpful or more friendly. The room was very attractive and the shower was nice and hot. There was even a view from the window. Breakfast was really fantastic - I could have made a real pig of myself! I also love the extra option of having kippers.... More

My stay here started with a very warm welcome and this continued throughout my visit. All staff were so friendly and helpful. Single room and ensuite were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast consisted of a huge variety of delicious food.... and big smiles from Susan. There's even a microwave and fridge available for guests to use. I've stayed in... More
