Experiencing the beauty of Lyme Regis bay and the Cobb from the grounds of the Alexandra Hotel is stunning! The hotel maintains its extensive grounds meticulously. There are loungers, tables, chairs generously placed around the property all affording a direct view of the sea. The hotel is perfectly situated in the town, but a bit away from the most congested...

We saved our two nights at the Alexandra as a treat at the end of our short holiday in the West Country. They award themselves five stars on their website, the photos look great and it was "comfortingly expensive" so we were expecting something special. How disappointed we were to arrive at what look like a back entrance with doors...

Found out my brother was staying here for the Guitars on the Beach" so decided to stay as well. Very happy with our room as we had a big bay window overlooking the gardens and the sea beyond that.

Seems madness as we only live about half an hour away but we really look forward to the odd trip to the Alexandra. Unfortunately it is always just for the one night as we are governed by the needs of animals.......cows, sheep, poultry etc. It is certainly not the cheapest hotel in Lyme Regis, but it is the best. Beautiful...

Had a wonderful cream tea sat in the garden overlooking Lyme Regis. Scones were mouth watering, with plenty of jam and cream. Staff were excellent and very helpful. The Alexandra is the perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon. Looking forward to a return visit.

We returned here, having had a pleasant previous stay. The food is excellent and the staff very helpful. The car parking is tight (and the staff have to move cars around). No air conditioning, but our room overlooked a quiet garden and there was no trouble having the window open. Room was on the small side, but beautifully appointed and...

I am usually well organized, but somehow I booked my annual summer spree, with one foot in Autumn. However, it made no difference to my stay. I was well looked after as a returning visitor, the hotel staff, left a small note in the bedroom, about which I was truly chuffed. Lots of new staff too. So a little patience...

Lunch was rather disorganised chaos. Understaffed and lacking firm leadership, queues at the bar were 20 minutes to place food orders for eating outside or even to get a drink. It's a shame as clearly a lot of money has been invested in the hotel but management is sorely lacking. Food when it came was average although desserts were excellent....
