There's a sign hung in the entrance...

Had another great stay at the Alexander. As usual the room was spotless and the breakfast,thanks to Alex`s expertise, was worth the stay on it`s own. Julie makes everyone very welcome and we are already looking forward to our next visit whenever we can make it.

Our third time at the Alexander. As Always, a warm welcome from Julie, who keeps this hotel in tiptop order and cleanliness. Lovely breakfasts with many home made items on the side tables . Alex certainly knows his way around that kitchen! We had three evening meals and all were three course delights. I would recommend to anybody who likes...
