We enjoyed our stay, the room was a little average for what you pay, but the food and service was exceptional. Beautiful location and setting. Thank you to the staff for being very attentive and pleasant because it makes all the difference when staying in different places.

I’ve enjoyed lunch at the Hotel Alexandra many times over the years and it’s never disappointed me always fresh locally sourced fish meats or vegetables all cooked to perfection. Service has always been exemplary I can’t fault anything. I will be visiting many more times in the future

Unsurpassable service, excellent food and a fabulous location with panoramic sea views. Spent Christmas with my 95 year old mother and couldn't have received better treatment. They were exceptionally kind and patient with her and we were able have a jolly cozy Christmas. Lyme Regis is a love sea side town with great walks and fossil hunting.

This was a great find, tried to book another restaurant, shall not mention name, just to say with all three attempts to book they couldn't be bothered to answer the phone.

I loved this place the first time I stayed so had great expectations for my return visit. In all honesty, I found the reception desk lady rather stroppy, which was so disappointing. The hotel serves afternoon tea to the public, which entitles them to use the car park and this, I think, is thoughtless to guests staying at the hotel....

We have just returned from a three-night stay at The Alexandra Hotel in Lyme Regis, circa 1735, and with a fascinating history. It has been sympathetically decorated and furnished. In the drawing room on the ground floor, there were lots of comfortable chairs, board games, plus books and magazines to read, whilst enjoying a coffee or cup of tea. This...

A beautiful Georgian Hotel and restaurant located near to the centre of Lyme Regis with a very Pride & Prejudice atmosphere. We stopped for lunch in the Conservatory overlooking a beautiful lawned garden. My daughter and I had the lamb and it was perfection itself. Beautifully cooked and presented.

Set very near the centre of the town, with great views over the famous Cobb harbour, this place is a delight. Outstanding staff, for whom nothing was too much effort - from the welcome, the show-around, the dinner service to the breakfast attention - quite outstanding. Lovely old building, dating from c1735 i think, sympathetically designed, with some great features,...
