When any establishment constantly achieves glowing accolades then suddenly one or two dodgey reports creep in it can send alarm bells ringing, don't let any such comments put you off visiting the gem of a place I discovered last week. My good lady and myself enjoyed a splendid short stay at The Alexander Hotel on Scarborough's north side. What a splendid experience it was too, the room was very nice indeed, excellent bathroom too, the whole decor was first class with no 'cheap' paint jobs and dodgy joinery ventures which sadly can happen. Breakfast was just right, served by a chirpy Julie and her team while Alex beavered away in the kitchen. The evening meal was simply splendid and certainly not a run of the mill offering, it's quality defied the hotel's reasonable prices. But it was the friendliness of this hard working couple (plus helpers) which shone through and demonstrated just why you should make a note of their hotel if being near to the sea, off road parking, excellent food and cosy bar are on your list of holiday requirements. We will return.

We have just enjoyed another excellent break at the Alexander. As usual, our room was great with lovely décor. Our bed was very comfortable and we had a superb amount of storage space for all our clutter. The bathroom was, as always, spotlessly clean with a good, powerful shower, very welcome with the current heatwave! Breakfast at the Alexander is always a treat; there is always a lovely warm atmosphere from our hosts; the food was fresh and perfectly cooked and Julie's great granola is irresistible. Julie and Alex always make us feel very welcome; they always enthuse us with their delightful approach to their work and nothing is too much trouble for them. It is so nice to find somewhere to stay which is for adults only. We can't wait to return next month to our 'home from home'.

my husband and i have just returned from a three night stay at the Alexander Hotel.The proprietors Alex and Julie take great pride and joy in making all their clients visits as perfect as possible The hotel is beautiful and clean food is excellent and cooked to a very high standard which makes you want to return year after year We stayed in a luxury room at the front of the hotel facing the main road due to the hot weather we left the windows open at night and slept well.Once again thankyou Alex Julie and Aaron for a perfect stay.

This is our third annual visit to the Alexander, and this time we stayed two weeks. The welcome is genuine and friendly, the Hotel is clean and comfortable, the service is excellent as is the food. We dine in each night and the food is delicious, freshly prepared with local ingredients and an imaginative menu which includes traditional favourites. Alex has introduced some new dishes for Breakfast and we can recommend them having tried the Pancakes, Baked Eggs and the Kedgeree.
We will return to the Alexander next year and the year after and the year after.........Get the message?

Room Tip: Forget the Booking services, pick up the 'Phone and talk to Julie and sort your booking out wit...

SSSSShhhh!! Keep it to yourselves (because I want to return here and vacancies are few and far between) this hotel excels in customer service. Beautifully appointed rooms, with quality furnishings, comfortable beds and quality linens. The ensuite was just the right size to complete your ablutions without banging heads and elbows and again quality fluffy linens and complimentary toiletries!! A warm welcome from Both Julie and Alex with a delicious pot of coffee and homemade shortbread to die for! Welcome chocs, a complimentary postcard and stick of rock are all simple little touches which help to set this hotel apart. Having stayed in hotels all around the world I can say with all honesty this is the best by far for outstanding customer service. We can't wait to return. PS. We had the top floor main road facing room with windows open and slept like logs!
