Thank you for making my pre birthday afternoon tea special, lovely staff, lovely setting and a lovely sea view. Also the best afternoon I have had. The sandwich and cakes were lovely and enjoyed the glass with mixed fruit and cream very refreshing

I loved this place the first time I stayed so had great expectations for my return visit. In all honesty, I found the reception desk lady rather stroppy, which was so disappointing. The hotel serves afternoon tea to the public, which entitles them to use the car park and this, I think, is thoughtless to guests staying at the hotel....

We have just returned from a three-night stay at The Alexandra Hotel in Lyme Regis, circa 1735, and with a fascinating history. It has been sympathetically decorated and furnished. In the drawing room on the ground floor, there were lots of comfortable chairs, board games, plus books and magazines to read, whilst enjoying a coffee or cup of tea. This...

A beautiful Georgian Hotel and restaurant located near to the centre of Lyme Regis with a very Pride & Prejudice atmosphere. We stopped for lunch in the Conservatory overlooking a beautiful lawned garden. My daughter and I had the lamb and it was perfection itself. Beautifully cooked and presented. Service was excellent and the waiter very attentive. We went back...

Set very near the centre of the town, with great views over the famous Cobb harbour, this place is a delight. Outstanding staff, for whom nothing was too much effort - from the welcome, the show-around, the dinner service to the breakfast attention - quite outstanding. Lovely old building, dating from c1735 i think, sympathetically designed, with some great features,...

Met some friends for lunch in the Hotel restaurant, could not fault the setting, service or quality of food but was really dissapointed in the quantity. Too much nouvelle cuisine presentation rather than sufficient to arrest an appetite !

The Alexandra sits on the cliffs above Lyme Regis giving easy - if hilly - access to both the beach and town. There are lovely gardens that provide spectacular views and a great place to just sit in and soak up the atmosphere.

Particularly a long boozy one like we had! Very good service indeed. We shared the seafood platter, only 2 oysters but nice and fresh. The crab beignets were delicious and the squid was perfectly cooked with a very good aioli. I would definitely recommend here particularly for a special occasion.
