My two friends and I stayed at this 2* hotel for a 'turkey and tinsel' break.What a good idea! A large Victorian sea-front hotel, with marvellous sea views, and nice bar lounge. Our rooms were a good size, with armchairs and en-suites that were very clean and in good order. Constant hot water, even at peak times! Our beds were... More

Disappointing on arrival, usually keys are given and you go to your rooms and patiently wait for luggage to arrive - different here. A coach full of passengers were asked to take a seat in the bar and we would be served tea and cake whilst ONE young man helped the coach driver unload the luggage and then he had... More

Hotel in very poor condition. my room, number 6 is next to reception and so I could hear lots of chatter, laughter, shouting, and general noise. food was ok if a little uninspiring and the waiter did his best to liven up the dining experience.

Having recently returned from one of the most enjoyable holidays of my life, I feel I must refute most strongly the derogatory reviews I have read. I really think some of these people must have been staying in a different hotel. We were warmly greeted on arrival with tea and cakes, then shown to our lovely room, one of the... More

Recently spent a really pleasant week at this hotel. This is our 3rd time at the Alexandra. A lot of people run this hotel down. Not me or my partner. For the money you pay it is value for money. Sea view room. Clean bedding, towels and clean room generally. Food excellent. Staff friendly and helpful. Well done Winston and... More

My initial impression of the staff was a good one. All staff members were courteous, affable, friendly and very pleasant. The decor, unfortunately, was grubby, very tired and could have done with a major clean and revamp. There was cracked dirty and peeling paintwork and dust all over the place including the foyer area and the restaurant. This type of... More
