Reviewed 1 week ago

From the warm welcome to our last breakfast nothing was too much trouble. Excellent breakfast; lovely room; use of dining room, crockery and cutlery at any time to eat our takeaways or sandwiches was much appreciated; spotlessly clean. Karen and Andy both made us feel at home and we have already recommended Alexander Lodge to a couple of friends.
