The Alexandra has a wonderful location and really makes the most of it.
The old house is elegantly furnished and kept in sparkling condition. The large well maintained cliff-top garden, part of it a croquet lawn during our stay, is perfect if you want to eat or drink outside and has some of the most seductively comfortable sunbathing furniture imaginable. A path leads down to the town gardens - themselves a credit to Lyme - the sea front, Marine Parade and the Cobb.
We had a "Hinton" room which meant we had a wonderful sea view from there as well as everywhere else in the hotel. The room itself was furnished thoughtfully to a high standard and the beds as comfortable as you could ever wish for.
We had two most enjoyable dinners during our short break and perfect breakfasts.Service was excellent throughout the hotel. The mostly young staff were friendly,efficient and extremely attentive without ever being at all obtrusive. They made our short stay a delight and we shall certainly be back.
