A group of us called into the Alex this morning for coffee and croissants. We were 11 adults and three children and this was about 10.45. Lucas took our order,m brought the very nice coffee promptly gave the correct order to each person, brought us water afterwards and got my sister cake and ice cream as she does not eat gluten, he could not have been more helpful.

This was our second visit to The Alex Hotel and we once again had a lovely stay. The location is great, the staff are lovely and the hotel facilities are excellent. We stayed in an Executive King which was spacious, the beds are very comfortable, and the access to the Executive Lounge was a treat. Although it is grab and go at the moment, it’s so useful to have access to drinks and snacks. We had brunch in The Secret Garden at the hotel and it was delicious and the decor is unique and a perfect brunch location. Breakfast was delivered to the room and that was lovely too. Overall, highly recommend.

Two night stay so that we could visit relatives for the first time in 18 months. Room was fantastic (Room 200) and the staff couldn't have done more. Meal in the restaurant on the first nice was very nice.
