“Return Visit”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We have just returned from our 2nd visit to Alexander Lodge in Southbourne.When we went last year Karen was still relatively new to being a landlady, but she has certainly settled in very well.
Warm greeting -drinks offered and a warm smile was a great start again.
The hotel is very clean and comfortable and nothing is too much trouble for Karen.
At our first breakfast time,she was asked for an iron and ironing board and what time the band played in the park.All requests were dealt with immediately.
We have no hesitation in recommending Alexander Lodge which we will return to in 2014.
Whatever you are doing Karen- you are doing it well to have people returning to you after only one season.Well done -hope to see you for a longer time next year-3 nights was not enough.
Thank you to you Andy and Jodie.

I am pleased to say Karen was able to accommodate my wife and i with a very late booking, tried 10 other Guest houses in the area and understandably all were fully booked, how pleased we were to find a vacancy at the Alexandra Guest House, what can we say, our visit started with a wonderful welcome by Karen who met us at the door even before we got out the car, that led to her showing us to our lovely twin king room plus a lovely offer of water and coffee that we gladly accepted after our journey, it was my wife,s birthday and it was lovely to find a card and gift from Karen, Andy and Jodie, a lovely unexpected touch, after Karen had explained everything to us we were left in private which we appreciate, Met Karen again at breakfast which cannot be faulted, actually nothing at this guest house can be faulted in our opinion, we will definatley return the the Alexandra whenever we plan to stay a night or two in Southbourne.

This review is on behalf of my stepdaughter. She advised us that the hotel was lovely, well furnished, very clean, with a great host and her and her daughter enjoyed a good breakfast. Certainly when speaking to Karen on the phone she was very helpful and sounded like a lovely lady.

Have just spent a night at the Alexander Lodge Hotel and wish it could have been more. Room (double with kingsize bed on the first floor) was roomy, clean with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was very good and I especially liked the fresh strawberries and blueberries to start followed by the full english. Karen and Andy were perfect hosts and Karen kindly made us a cup of tea as soon as we arrived which after our journey was most welcome. I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Room 6 suited us perfectly.

Highly recommended. Karen, the hostess was amazing. She could not do enough to make our stay a very comfortable and happy one. The room was very clean, bed comfortable, towels were luxuriously soft and fresh and the decor was up to date. The "Hotel Inspector" would be impressed with this establishment. Breakfast was exceptional, all we could eat, fresh strawberries and blueberries included with full English, and the usual extras. Karen even provided us with all we needed to have take always in the dining room in the evenings. We have two very young children, and Karen was well prepared for our little guests, high chairs, plastic plates and the like. She even had some spades for us to borrow for the beach and said she was going to increase her collection for children to use. Located in a pretty, leafy avenue and 5 minute stroll to the sea,this is a fantastic place to stay and we will most definitely be back. Thank you very much Karen for a very special holiday.

Hi Clare and family, Thank you for taking the time to write such a fantastic review. We are so pleased that you had a special holiday with us. You will be pleased to hear that our bucket and spade is still growing so there will be a lot more choice for the children (or adults!). We hope to see you again in the future.

We had a very warm welcome when arriving from Karen. Comfy bed and a lovely breakfast, nothing was too much trouble. A very convenient place to stay everything you need nearby. The street is a quiet residential area. Thank you
