Myself and my partner booked our stay here after reading great reviews. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious and spotless. The breakfast was very tasty and the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Would definitely return again in the future. Highly recommended accommodation.

In a terrace with no parking, finding an on-street spot nearby was easy, but perhaps I was lucky? The reception was friendly and the room, whilst compact, was reasonably clean and tidy. The decor everywhere looked a bit tired, and the shower tray was cracked, but all this was trivial and it was still good value. Comfortable bed and very...

Professionally-run but with friendliness, this is a good quality place at excellent value. Very good breakfast, organised very well. Comfortable and attractive accommodation. Super-convenient for restaurants and provisions nearby. Room was very adequate, and the bathroom, though some distance from the room was for my exclusive use - and spacious with a choice of shower or bath! And best of...

After needing accommodation in Swansea to accompany my student daughter to a hospital procedure, I came across the Alexander on a hotel booking forum, I was very surprised at how reasonably priced it was against other well known facilities, particularly as breakfast was also included, but more importantly it was within easy reaching distant of my daughter's accommodation and the...

Stayed here for our 1st Wedding Anniversary. We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and welcoming. Good local knowledge which helped us out as we have not been to Swansea before. The room was lovely and we were lucky enough to have an end suite as some people had to share. The breakfast was cooked to order...

Starting with the good bits: Bed very comfortable. Breakfast ok. Free Street parking. The Brewstone bar is 2 minutes away. Sweet lady at breakfast. Had a stunning Chinese 8 mins away....and I mean stunning. Bad bits: Tiny room. Tiny shower with almost no power....to the point that one has to question it's existence. Sink blocked. Artex ceiling in terrible condition....

This was our third visit to The Alexander and once again it didn't disappoint. We usually book the family room (1 double bed and 2 singles) and it's perfect for what we need. Lovely clean bed linen and plenty of towels. The ensuite is stocked with toiletries, if needed, and there is a good selection of coffee/tea making things in...

Stayed here with my family the weekend just gone - visiting my brother as he is at Swansea University. Room was fantastic and the breakfast, one of the best I've had. The owners do a fantastic job in looking after their residents - we hope to see you guys soon!!

The Alexander Bed and Breakfast was a wonderful place to stay. The Uplands are near to the beach, the University of Swansea and fairly close to the city centre including Wind Street. A single fare from Wind Street back to the Alexander was not even 7 pounds. The room was large and comfortable with all the amenities I would want...

Stayed four most comfortable nights to spend part of half term exploring Swansea and seeing my first year uni son. Excellent all round - the friendly staff have made us feel most welcome. We will stay nowhere else when visiting Swansea!
