The room was so clean and fresh with a lovely homely, modern touch. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. I felt right at home here and would recommend this lovely bed and breakfast to...

Stayed here for one night on our way back home to Dundee. What a find. It was spotlessly clean and the room we stayed in had everything you could wish for. There was a lovely choice at breakfast and everything is freshly cooked and nicely presented. Would definitely stay again.

After a warm welcome from Cath, we were shown to room 1. Top marks for comfort, cleanliness and those little added extras . For example, proper mugs in our... More

We had stayed at Alexander House about 3 years ago and found it very satisfactory. We stayed again on about 6th September, and found it equally satisfactory: very clean - and equally friendly with a wonderful breakfast. Will certainly stay there again!
