Plenty of car parking at rear of hotel. Friendly and efficient reception. Comfortable room and good bathroom. Comprehensive Scottish menu in Bistro with generous portions. Dining and bar areas would benefit from more relaxing furniture Hotel located in the centre of town, opposite the train station.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 February 2017 via mobile

We visited the Alexandra Hotel for an overnight stay 18th February as a family group of four. We booked a dinner, bed and breakfast deal through Itison. We received a warm welcome at check in and found both rooms clean, warm and comfortable (302 and 318). 302 had an especially good view of the sea. Both rooms were well equipped...

Stopped to check out Fort William and do some hiking. The Alexandra was perfectly located at the end of High street (the main shopping street). Comfortable, clean room with full buffet breakfast. That's a winner for me.

On arrival at the hotel we got parked straight away as we arrived as others were checking out but can imagine that parking would be limited later in the day. Lovely location just at the end of the high street. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable but dated. The shower was over the bath - excellent...

After having trouble with the plumbing got moved to a room at the front of the hotel which had the most fantastic view. Ate in the restaurant in the evening and the four of us in our party all had wonderful food, especially my husband who had the seafood platter. Great value for money. The staff were all friendly and...

Had an amazing overnight here after completing the west highland way. Check in was a breeze and the girls on the desk were super friendly and helpful. The hotel is very traditional and this theme is carried throughout. Our room was lovely, clean and spacious. The bathroom was gorgeous and looked fairly new. The food and drink in the bar...

We chose this hotel for its close proximity to the train station. We arrived on the 12th and were able to get checked in early which was great. The staff were great and the room was nice and comfy although we found the hotel to be rather warm. The breakfast was really good with a great selection of continental and...

The room had all we needed & was clean & warm upon arrival. The bar service was very good & the hotel was comfy. Breakfast was self service with all the usual options. Plenty of hot water & the shower worked a treat. Would recommend this hotel to anyone & we will be going back.

The hotel is okay. The check in staff was great. I did not catch her name but she said she was in training. She was doing a great job! We had a problem with our room and she was able to get us another room quickly. We had supper at the on site restaurant. Nothing wonderful, but not horrible. Breakfast...

This hotel has a real problem with a drains smell from the bathrooms. The management needs to give this urgent and serious attention. We had to change rooms on the first night as we couldn't have slept in the room we were originally allocated because of the appalling smell. The room we were next given was ok, but the room...
