        Staff were most helpful. fantastic breakfasts!!!!!

        Avoid new rooms 8 and 9 - the walls are like paper and the shower in room 8 was either lukewarm or no water at all. I was warned by the owner that there was a problem but he still charged me full price when I could only use shower on 2 mornings.

        Friendly, comfortable guesthouse in the heart of the Uplands district of Swansea (within walking distance of the city centre, several lovely parks and the sea). Every effort seems to be made to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Excellent breakfast. The smallest single room is very small indeed, and the private bathroom is along the landing, but that is made clear on the Booked.net website and it really isn't a problem as a bathrobe is provided. Digital TV, clock radio and generous tea and coffee facilities in the room, and plenty of toiletries in the bathroom. Well worth the money, and much better value than the soulless budget chain hotels in town.

        The water pressure in the bathroom was less than ideal, with just a dribble of water from the shower.

        Situated in the Uplands area of Swansea in a converted Victorian/Edwardian terrace with restaurants and pubs nearby and within walking distance of the university, seafront and city centre. A very friendly welcome from the owners. They have refurbished the rooms recently and the rooms are spotless and very attractive. Although its not exactly a 'boutique' hotel it offers the facilities that you could find in most modern international hotels (except the mini bar). A fabulous breakfast is on offer in the slightly old fashioned dining room. Highly recommended and good value for money....

        Staff very friendly and accommodating; opened up the bar for me especially so I could get a cheeky nightcap. Moved me from a front to back room on request so could get a quiet night's sleep.

        The Alexander has the perfect staff, as friendly as the day is long! Very helpful in every way and always a pleasure to talk to. The room I had was splendid, no complaints at all! It is not down in the city centre, which is a good thing as this area is much nicer, and you have excellent connections to the Gower from right outside the doorstep. And it only takes 10-15 minutes to walk down the city centre as well. Highly recommend it for a relaxing and friendly atmosphere!

        Friendly hospitable clean. Lovely breakfasts with great assortment of food.

        Shower didn't work too well and water kept going cold

        Very welcoming by staff. Personal service and lovely detail in rooms to make you feel it's great value for money.

        i have nothing to complain about-the breakfast was excellent and there was a lot of choice. The room was quite spotless and comfortable also having wi fi access and Digital TV made it much better. A Couple of miles from the Swansea City Centre but bus service not bad.

        Very friendly host, good breakfast, the room had an excellent sea view and a vibrant location (even if a distance from the centre of town)

        Neat and clean and owner is humble

        The only thing I don't like is value to money.... You can find many more then 30 b&b and in the best location, just in front of the Swansea beech.... Therefore just of cleanliness and humble nature of the owner I won't pay 20 30 pound extra per night

        The friendly nature of the people who run The Alexander. The cleanliness and quiet nature of the hotel. The location and its closeness to supermarkets and eateries.

        The room was of an excellent quality, funished with a large bed, modern TV and shower, and a generous welcome tray. It was a perfect, uncluttered, clean and well-decorated place to rest and relax after a long drive. Breakfast too was fantastic; certainly enough to keep you going until the evening.

        The only complaint we had was that it was really difficult to find; we arrived on a friday in heavy traffic, so we parked up and walked to find it instead of driving around aimlessly. However this is perhaps in part due to the useless internet route planner we had printed off, which hindered rather than helped our efforts.

        Great value for the price and Heino was very friendly. The breakfast was nice too.

        My room lacked a window. This was fine for one night, but I'm not sure I'd have liked it for a long stay.

        I was made very welcome. I required an early breakfast and this was no problem.The room was comfortable and the hotel was quiet.

        I was allocated a basement room with no windows. This was OK for one night but I wouldnt have stayed in it for longer. there is no parking space.

        Fantastic hotel. Beautiful room, welcoming staff, good location. Not a bad word to say and cant think of a single thing I would have changed. Everything you could ask for.
