Customer Rating: Mrs Lee, Telford The hotel reception was very welcoming and the hotel was bright and clean, the room spacious. The service in the restaurant wasn't very good, they seemed short staffed and disorganised, therefore it was difficult to enjoy and relax, although the food was good. With some tweaks the hotel could be very good but there is a lot of competition in the local area, they need to give that extra customer service.

Customer Rating: Mr Cowley, Worcester

Customer Rating: Mrs Crofts, Basingstoke A great little break. We do this weekend at the Alexandra with our friends a couple of times a year and this was one of the best. The service in the restaurant was greatly improved from last time and everything went smoothly. The wine served as part of the package was very drinkable and dinner was great. We love using the pool here and our only disappointment was that the Jacuzzi was still out of order a year later.

Customer Rating: Ms O'Donovan, London

Customer Rating: Mr Binns, Halifax Great break.

Customer Rating: Mr Furness, Yateley Staff were all polite, friendly, helpful and professional. Hotel has lovely walking countryside nearby and Swindon outlet shopping centre a short drive.

Customer Rating: Mr Abbott, Rickmansworth Hotel was ok but no character. Restaurant was pretty poor in both service and quality of food

Customer Rating: Mr Elsey, Aldershot

Customer Rating: Miss James, Clevedon

Customer Rating: Mrs Graham, March My dinner was poor one night but they were sorry and offered a free dessert!
