In detail

In contrast with the 17th-century building, the rooms and suites at Alexander House Hotel are contemporary in style with designer wallpaper and eclectic furnishings. Reminiscent of a Roman spa, wander along the marble and granite corridor to Utopia Spa, that provides more than 50 treatments, many of them unique.

Alexander House Hotel’s two excellent restaurants serve exciting modern European cuisine. AG’s Grill Room is a fine dining restaurant with imaginative and varied à la carte menu together with a succulent grill menu. Reflections is a less formal, brasserie-style restaurant with a Champagne bar and serves food in Flames Courtyard in summer with a log pit for cooler nights.
