The Alexander Guesthouse is exactly what it sells itself as. A good standard of a 2 star B&B...& as such I will review it as that. As a contractor who works predominantly away from home I have stayed in many contractor digs over the years...& as my contract in Hemel Hempstead has been an on/off type of job over 3...

Thank you Apathy73 for your great review! We aim to give a good all round experience on a smaller budget and want to make sure it is as comfortable as possible. We do believe the extras like a microwave and fridge in most rooms is a great bonus for the people staying away for work. As you say, it costs...

Thank you Neil C for your review. I am happy to hear that our staff did their job well and helped you with your needs. As night shift workers, it's unfortunate that you needed to move to a lower level room, as it is in the top floor where we place our guests who need quiet during the day time....

This establishment trades under the guise of a hotel. In reality it is a B & B lodging for homeless families and single out-of-work men. I was offered one of the best rooms. It was warm and clean but there was nothing endearing about it. Just cheap, white furniture, laminated floor and nothing else. The battery in the TV remote...

Dear Trickytrevlongeaton, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we always appreciate our guest feedback. I am sorry to hear your stay with us was not very positive for you. I believe you were given one of our older rooms which is one of the few which have not yet been refurbished. So unfortunately the room is...

We have just stayed on Saturday night and had for rooms, two tins and two singles on the top floor. The rooms were spotless, if a little small, but utilised the available space excellently. You could not fault them for the cleanliness of the rooms. We were told in advance that these were the smallest rooms, so this was no...

Thank you Bexrt for your kind review. We do pride ourselves with the cleanliness of our rooms and are so pleased that you had a good stay, slept well and finished with a nice breakfast! We are indeed under new management and are already in the early phase of refurbishment of this redbrick building. We plan lovely upgrades of our...

The good thing I can say is that the people are very friendly and helpful and the location is a 5 min walk to the town centre. The rest, I'm afraid, is not so good. At least 4 floors, no elevator so keep in mind if heavy luggage. The room, while clean, had its issues. The ensuite bathroom which you...

Room like a cupboard. Tiny and horrible bathrooms. Breakfast inedible! Really horrible beans and bacon - never tasted anything quite like it! You have to eat breakfast between 7 and 8am only! The person who likened it to Borstal was quite right! Yes it was fairly cheap, but after one night of no sleep I checked out and I have...

I was forced to find accommodation temporarily as I am relocating to the area for my new job but my flat was not ready. I decided to book the cheapest place possible which in hindsight is not the best way to go about booking a room for the night. First impressions are that it is very dated; the wallpaper is...

This is a combination of a 1970s borstal and a DHSS hostel. There are damp patches on most of the ceiling throughout the building, the woodchip wall paper is peeling and to cover the gaps, pages of A4 printer paper have been sellotaped over the holes! The room is very tired, peeling wallpaper, broken furniture and tatty carpets, the en-suite...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Alexandra Guest House is a 30 room bed&breakfast situated in the heart of Hemel Hempstead. We don't offer 5 star accommodation so that you don't have to pay 5 star prices, therefore we are the perfect place to stop for a comfortable stay if you are visiting the area for work or an event. With a warm welcoming atmosphere, Full English Breakfast and clean, cozy rooms, some of which we have even added cute little en-suite pods for added convenience, we are here to offer you a relaxing stay without breaking the budget. All rooms have flat screen TV's, free Wifi and tea/coffee making facilities. We are very centrally located, only 100yds from from the historic Old Town High Street and 5 mins walk from the new shopping centre, so it's ideal if you are in town for business. There are many fine walks here in Hemel - along the Grand Union canal, the lovely Gadebridge Park at the end of our road and the countryside around Hemel Hempstead is particularly beautiful. The area is well served by motorways, main roads and rail. It is a 30min drive to Luton airport, 40min drive to Heathrow, 30min by train from Euston Station in London and only 15 mins drive from the M25 and M1 motorways. We hope to see you on your next visit. ... more   less
