It is about 25 years since I last stayed in the Alex and I retain happy memories to this day. After all, I was successfully interviewed for a job which meant I stayed in Fort William for about 6 years. Now don't get me wrong, the Alex is still excellent, indeed it exceeded expectation. A great deal - avoid trivago...

My wife and I have just had a another dose of Alexandra Hotel hospitality. The dinner menu is varied and tasty served by efficient and attentive staff, combine this with a breakfast which would grace any of the top hotels in the country. We had a " superior " room on the third floor which had recently been refurbished and...

Didn't stay here but visited their restaurant for dinner. Very nice traditional food and catered well for gluten free. Nice atmosphere. Service could have been better but acceptable. Night was nicely rounded off with some traditional Scottish music in the bar beside the restaurant - nice touch, especially for the tourists but I also enjoyed it. A little extra at...

Alexandra Hotel is located just in town center, easy to walk around shopping street, railway station (= possible to reach by public transport) and harbor. My opion is that it would function ideally to...

It's locality to the station plus the good reviews affected my decision to...

We turned up without a reservation and got a room straight away and all the staff we came across were friendly and welcoming. We only ate lunch (sandwiches) and breakfast (full cooked/continental/cereal were available) the following morning and it was OK. The room we had was OK although, for us the bed was a little on the hard side. There...
