Hotel's Favorite
I stayed recently for a few days at the Alexandra in a superior double. The room was very nice, bed comfortable, an excellent shower in a most acceptable bathroom, flatscreen tv, a selection of chairs and tea & coffee making facilities with rather nice shortbread replenished daily as required. The ladies at reception were very pleasant and helpful and the bar and restaurant staff very friendly and efficient. Dinner in the restaurant was pretty good, but the Scottish breakfast was smashing. A nice place, reasonably priced and I'd stay again without any qualms on any future visit.

This was a Hogmanay event and it was clear that organisation and staff shortages were making life difficult. Not only in the hotel but in most restaurants and bars. Nonetheless they won through and we had a good time. Food and drink good and my room was comfortable. Thank you to all for efforts in difficult time.

We have stayed at The Alex for four years over the Christmas period and always loved our stay. However this time, was sadly very disappointing! Our superior room was just ‘ok’. The usually great food was lacklustre and the staff appeared untrained’, wandering around the restaurant with plates of food going cold whilst they looked for table numbers. Some wearing dirty trainers and all looking like a hotpotch of people that were dragged in off the street to serve food. It pains me to write this but next Christmas we will probably stay somewhere else. The Alex has lost its charm.
