Alexandra Guest House

Considering a Workcation? Alexandra B&B may want to make you stay for all the right reasons

The pandemic has altered for good our way of life – particularly the way we work. As offices began shutting down during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, people took to work from home, meeting over video conferences.

However, work from home has started taking a toll on people’s mental well-being. With international destinations out of bound, many are preferring to mix business with pleasure and taking short trips to nearby places, where they continue to work while enjoying their quick break.

Keeping in mind this new culture of workcation, Alexandra Bed and Breakfast — a 30-room bed and breakfast situated at the heart of Hemel Hempstead — has opened its doors for professionals seeking a few days of peace and quiet. Packed with features, this quaint bed and breakfast establishment will make you want to stay for all the right reasons.

Why Choose Alexandra Bed and Breakfast for Your Workcation?

Alexandra Bed and Breakfast is situated only 100 yards from the historic Old Town High Street and a five-minute walk from the new shopping mall. Easy to locate, this bed-and-breakfast place is perfect for spending your work days away from home.

Cosy rooms

This Bed and Breakfast offers a variety of rooms. There are as many as eight room categories on offer — Small Standard Single Room, Single En-suite Attic Room, Regular En-suite Single Room, Standard Double Room, Attic Twin En-suite Room, En-suite Double or Twin Room, En-suite Triple Room and Room for Family Stay. Each room comes with a host of modern amenities that will make your work hassle-free. Each bathroom comes with running hot water and a hairdryer.

Internet for optimal work

A high-speed Wi-Fi facility ensures that your work never stops and that you are connected with your boss and colleagues all the time. The bed-and-breakfast is currently upgrading to Hypnos beds, which are arguably the most comfortable beds in the world. This would ensure that you are well-rested and ready to take on the world the next day.

Hearty breakfast

Alexandra Bed and Breakfast realises the importance of a hearty meal. Every morning, you can indulge in a full English breakfast, in which you are treated to warm toasts, sunny-side-up eggs, baked beans, a range of preserves, and, of course, piping hot coffee.

Each room is provided with a coffee maker so that you can brew a fresh cup of coffee whenever you are feeling the blues. A microwave in each room means that you can order in your lunch or dinner from your favourite local joint and heat it whenever you feel like it. This would not only save you time but would also help you to concentrate on your work.


The bed-and-breakfast leaves no stone unturned for your entertainment. After the day’s work, you can turn on the flat-screen TV in your room to catch up on the big news of the day or your favourite sitcom, for that matter. You can also take evening walks along the Grand Union Canal and the lovely Gadebridge Park to freshen up and banish the mid-week blues.

Quaint and delightfully charming, with shades of red and white, this establishment provides you with a sense of comfort, even when you are away from home.
