We were recommended to The Alexandra, so on the occasion of my wife's birthday we booked for two nights. It's location & position overlooking the ocean is excellent. Our room was good (we booked a sea view which I recommend), well appointed & everything you need. The only problem was two flights of stairs with luggage (no Elevator). The best...

Although we only spent one night at the Alexandra, we left feeling completely refreshed after a perfect stay. It really was faultless: the room was spotless and stylish, the service was immaculate - helpful, but not intrusive or obsequious - but what really impressed us were the little touches from bedtime tea on our return to the room to a...

Lovely location with good views and close to the sea. Excellent quality decor and food and friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was very good but dinner was more presentation over substance. Quite expensive but it was a special occasion.

Review is of the Restaurant as we met friends here at their suggestion and we enjoyed a very relaxing morning coffee followed later by lunch. A thoughtful menu with something to suit most people even those with various dietary requirments. Veranda restaurant has nice views across the lawns and out to Lyme Bay. All was lovely but a word of...

The Hotel Alexandra is located alongside the main 'through' road of Lyme Regis on the hill at the western end. My wife and I had not stayed before and booked the for a mid-week overnight stop. We chose a superior room overlooking Lyme Bay. Upon arrival, it is obvious car parking could be an issue. Through no fault of the...

Here for our 25th wedding anniversary, our room on the second floor has the most amazing views (staying here now). Supper was delicious finishing with West Country cheeses. We would love to come back.

Funny enough we ended up visiting Lyme Regis by accident as we were driving close by so I decided to take my boyfriend and his sister to see the place. They were speechless!!

We had a special celebratory afternoon tea in the conservatory, it was wonderful. The selection of teatime treats was superb and there was plenty! The view over Lyme Bay was lovely from the conservatory but if the weather is good you can also sit outside for the tea, the gardens are well kept with comfy chairs. Service was very good...
