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

The Alexandra hotel is in need of complete decoration and modernisation, but food is good and the hotel is clean and the owner can not do enough to help you with anything that you may require. The Air show was on during our holiday and is brilliant if you are interested in this type of thing, and we would recommend... More

We booked for the airborne weekend . When we arrived although the room was small the best thing about the room was the view. However the velvet headboard was filthy and had to make sure the pillow was against it . On the first morning we came down for breakfast at 9.20 and didn't, realise breakfast was only for 1... More

We had a stunning view from our room and it was a very comfortable stay. We were late for breakfast and Winston came to our room with a full English and toast with orange juice and tea. This was just what we needed and it was delicious. We never even had to ask him. He gave us amazing service throughout... More

Overall the sea view room was fantastic. The view was amazing and considering we had a 9month baby everything was accommodated for. The staff were very welcoming and the food was exquisite. The room had high ceilings and gave a grand kind of feeling with a nice contemporary bathroom/shower. The room included tv, bed, arm chairs, coffee table, fridge and... More
