            7.0

            We were went to the horse trials at Badminton the hotel was only 30 drive from Badminton. and only 15 mins. from the discount shopping mall. The swimming pool was great.

            Don't stay in room 105 as the loading doors next to that bedroom are open at 7.45 loading laundry that was not good Bank Holiday Monday. also the bed has a dip in the middle.

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            not a lot some bar staff exeptional

            resteraunt had poor lack of knowledge on their menu cold plates = cold food over priced phones rung every two hours through the night some staff calling every body mate

            Very nice hotel, well kept, polite helpful staff. Great facilities and room is good size double. Gym & Pool are good. Cant comment on restaurant as i had pizza in room, but breakfast was good in clean smart room. Very good value. i recommend the Alexandra.

            Walls a bit thin so i got noise from other rooms and corridor. Toilet roll kept falling off holder. Thats it!

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The clean, comfortable and pleasant surroundings, and also the very helpful and friendly staff. Everything was just as we would have wished for.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            We were allowed to let our dog into the room in the evenings. The dog slept in the car, at night, but no-one was concerned when the dog came in the hotel by a side door. Staff were friendly and polite and helpful.

            The noisy wedding party on Saturday 10th April. Wedding guests bedrooms should be confined to one wing and they should be informed that other guests may wish to sleep after 11pm.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Location and the overall friendliness of the stafff, rooms were excellent very clean and tastfully decorated would definitely use again as nothing was too much trouble for the staff employd there.

            We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Everybody was very good to us. We liked the pool,steam room and gym. The food was really good. We are thinking to come back. Thank you for your making our holiday so special. Kind regards Todorka and Roger

          • Family with children
            9.6

            Comfy rooms, helpful staff, nice pool, gym. sauna etc. Food was also good.

            Can't think of anything negative.

          • Couple
            9.6

            Excellent service, comfortable, and a nice place to spend a weekend.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Excellent buffet dinner with attentive waiting staff

            The trek from reception to our bedroom took several minutes. Another guest showed us how to go out of a fire exit, across the gardens and round through the car park but the building urgently needs another interconnecting corridor.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Quietness, spacy room

            After the first night, the bed wasn't made properly. The top blanket was just pulled over a totally wrinkled sheet, as it looks when you have slpet in it. We complained at the front desk. It was corrected.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            Rooms were smart and clean. Very good buffet breakfast.

            Bar prices and bar food rather extortionate - London prices for beer plus £3 for a very small bowl of chips!

          • Single
            8.2

            A very warm welcome, friendly staff and great for business stays, meetings and conferences. Nice pool and gym for relaxation and excercise.

            I forgot my swimming / gym kit. It would have been a really outstanding experience if I could have rented/ borrowed or purchased an emergency bikini / pair of shorts / trainers. A small on site shop would be a great addition to available services....and , if well managed, probably a nice addition to income too!

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Staff all welcoming friendly and professional. The staff make the hotel.

            The tablecloth at breakfast was dirty - hadn't even even been 'crumbed down'.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            For what we paid (£65) the room and hotel was excellent.

            Tinned tomatoes at breakfast. £2.50 credit card surcharge
