    Amazing nighttime reception staff

    Our stay was fantastic the night reception team were absolutely amazing going the extra mile to try to enhance the enjoyment and help in a difficult situation they are a credit to the hotel. They helped me with a problem that they didn't have too which was extremely stressful to myself and my guest.

    A long awaited break

    Arrived around 10am on Saturday as part of a club group, knowing that we were not allowed to book in until later in the day was ok, managed to book in shortly after 1pm, asked if the bar was going to open soon and would we be able to get some sandwiches the answer was no to both questions. A car trip to the local shop! Saturday evening was a dinner dance the hot food was served at best cool on cold plates with the Chicken Supreme served without out sauce and a shortage of vegetables, the meal was meant to have tea or coffee after but that wasn't offered! Breakfast was a repeat of the above with what was meant to be a hot buffet that was on the whole cool served on cold plates! Sunday lunchtime the bar was only open spasmodically so the availability of drinks whether alcohol or tea & coffee was limited, and no food available if you hadn't booked the BBQ! Could be so much better following the reopening after the long Covid lockdown!

    Tired rooms but wonderful service

    Please read to the end for the good news. The accomodation seems to be coming towards the end of its decorating lifecycle, and it looks like a long time since its last deep clean. The daily clean was also only average. The contents in the rooms were almost comically random; whether you had a desk lamp, safe, second chair, and so on depended on which room you were in on the corridor. Our shower was jammed on searing, which could have hopitalised someone, so we were swapped to a different room. However, the staff were amazing. They had the attitude that this was a luxury hotel and should cater to the visitors' every wish. All the minor faults were addressed and with a smile. For this reason I have raised the rating to Good.

    Fire alarm wake up at 230am and 6am

    The fire alarm at the hotel has two faults that are showing on the fire panel. The fire alarm sounded and evacuate the building at 2:30 am and then again at 6 am. I did not sleep that night and was working very early and was disappointed that I spent so much money to achieve a good night sleep and didn’t. The next day I asked the receptionist if there was anything she would do to compensate me for spending so much money and losing sleep she said there was nothing she could do.

    Just average, skip breakfast

    I would say Alexandra House was an average hotel at best. The most annoying part was that the times for breakfast, which was an added charge, made it useless. Breakfast started at 8:30 one day, 8:00 the other two days. I had places to be early so I paid for breakfast that I couldn't eat. Hotel serves as banquet/conference center, the clients for which made a mess of the ground pretty regularly. Room was average in terms of comfort.

    Not as good as expected

    Booked 2 rooms. Accessible room not ready until 7pm on day of arrival. Some issues with cleanliness. Hotel clearly understaffed throughout the duration of our stay. Nonetheless, room spacious and very comfortable. Grounds lovely. Staff extremely busy but friendly and helpful. Hotel is dog friendly, which wasn’t a problem for us but some guests were put off with dogs inside the building.
