Review of stay
5 stars 5

'I had a wonderful time at the Alexander. The room was amazing, with so many little "touches" to make my stay complete such as the welcome mint, and tea and biscuits. Extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable-best sleep for ages. Breakfast was wonderful, such a wide variety and you could just help yourself to as much as you like. As a solo traveller I felt very much at home and at ease. Congratulations on having such an amazing establishment and I will be highly recommending you. I just hope I have to come back to Swansea in the future so I can stay again.'

'Stayed just one night and really couldn't complain about anything. Well positioned for visiting Swansea and just yards from a good local selection of banks, shops and eaterys. Great communication and friendly welcome. Our room was at the rear of the hotel and nice and quiet. Could just see the sea over the rooftops and between the houses. The room was spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Lots of hot water. Very generous on tea, coffee, milk, toiletries etc. and we had T.V., kettle, hair dryer. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and plenty of it. Would highly recommend and we will definitely use again.'

What a find!!
5 stars 5

'I have just returned home after one night at this lovely hotel on the outskirts of Swansea. Before I go on, I just want to say that sometimes there are gems of hotels just on your doorstep. I have driven past this unassuming hotel thousands of times on my way to and from work in Swansea and never given it a thought. But when our work do was being held in the Uplands area of Swansea I had the dilemma of how to get home in Llanelli late at night after several pints of cider! taxi fare would be extortionate so for the price of a late night taxi back home I instead opted for a night at the Alexander. Reviews on tripadvisor were very favourable and prices were incredibly reasonable. I only spent one night here but I feel strongly enough to write a review as I would like more people to get to know what a fabulous little hotel this is. First of all the welcome on checking in was warm, genuine and very friendly. I was shown to a compact, but immaculately furnished light and airy room. Very clean and modern without being über trendy. A lot of attention to detail in the room. For a very very reasonable charge of £36 per night for the cheapest room at the hotel I got flat screen TV, free wifi, lovely fluffy towels and a gloriously comfortable bed. After a great night in Uplands area all I then had to do was walk a few steps to the Alexander and my welcoming bedroom. I slept like a log and then was treated to a delicious home cooked breakfast in the morning in the welcoming and cosy breakfast room. Seriously this hotel is a real find. What some hotels charge is an absolute joke. I have stayed at hotels of all over the world and been charged ludicrous amounts of money for the extras I got for free at the Alexander and without any of the genuine warmth of the couple that run it. I would recommend this hotel in an instant. It's a little cracker!'

'We stayed as a bridal party the night before my friends wedding (bride and 3 bridesmaids). We had a lovely room with lots of attention to detail and little added extras to make our stay very pleasant. Staff were friendly and helpful and seemed to go the extra mile on hearing they had a bride staying. This could just be the way they treat all their guests though! We wish we could've stayed longer but we had a wedding to get to. Only downside was the lack of parking, although street parking is available.'

Alexander hotel review
5 stars 5

'I recently stayed at the Alexander Hotel for my 21st birthday for a night out in swansea. The hotel staff were really friendly and welcoming cant fault them! we stayed in a family room it had a double bed and 2 singles. Rooms were lovely, clean and the amenities were of a high standard. Would recommend any family/ young groups to stay there either for a night out or a quiet weekend. It's about a 20 minute walk to the main town of swansea and its 5 minutes in a taxi only costing less than a fiver!'
