Spent an absolutely wonderful weekend in what must be the 'Go To' hotel in Lyme Regis. The rooms are beautifully furnished, the staff are simply amazing and so so helpful, the food (and cocktails!) divine, and the views breathtaking. What more could you ask for? Looking forward to returning as soon as time permits. This is definitely a hotel where...

This hotel with its beautiful gardens has a commanding view of the coast,with most of the bedrooms enjoying the spectacular scenery. The rooms are comfortable with a mix of antique and modern furnishings. The staff were exceptional nothing it seems was too much for them and always with a smile. The only thing I did have a problem with was...

Practically perfect in every way. Attentive polite staff, fantastic room, fabulous food. Unpretentious unfussy understated luxury and relaxation. Best breakfast, perfectly poached egg, proper tea with pot of hot water. Lovely bar and cocktails before dinner, soothing unobtrusive music.

Very comfortable, welcoming public rooms, excellent service and cuisine. Like many older properties, it has no lift, which was a bit of a problem for those with mobility problems. Beautiful views of Lyme Bay. Pleasant garden.

Dear 143sallyk Thank you for writing your review and for the positive feedback concerning the Alexandra. You are correct in saying that we do not have a lift, unfortunately being a Grade II listed historical building we are prevented from installing this facility. However, as you say we do have three ground floor rooms available for those who may have...

One grows weary of restaurants, in this neck of the woods, of doing without professionalism. We are expected to make allowances for, I don't know, no training, no dedication, no knowledge. So a pleasure to walk into a proper restaurant where the staff just know how it's done. Warm, communicative when needed, considerate, and slick. So go here if you...

We stayed at the hotel in October 2016 after getting married and this was a return visit as we love Lyme Regis so much. We had a great welcome, and although we were early and our room wasn’t ready we were told it would be the next room to be serviced and would be ready in 20 mins, which it...

In fulfilling a long held ambition to visit Lyme Regis, we now have another "task" to add to our wish list; To return to the Alexandra, which given its location (relative to Newcastle) will require some planning! Loved the history behind the hotel and some of the memorabilia on display. It is clear that much thought and expense have been...

Went for lunch with friends as part of a celebration. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. It was a drizzly day, but it was still nice to have the view from the conservatory, although it was a little chilly! The decor is very chic and nice and calming. The...

A birthday lunch and the weather and setting were perfect but sadly the food wasn't great. Both courses were mediocre at best. Service was pretentious for the type of restaurant it was. The catch of the day was whiting which came with soggy batter and was watery and not pleasant. The hotel has aspirations but isn't there yet and we...
